Uncle Remus is a fictional character, deuteragonist, and narrator, not to mention title character, of African American folktales. The stories were adapted and compiled by Joel Chandler Harris. His first film appearance was in Disney's 1946 hit Song of the South, where he was portrayed by James Baskett. He also narrates the animated segments, telling the Br'er Rabbit stories.
Song of the South
Uncle Remus is not seen in the Disney Park attraction based on Song of the South. However, the famous lines he says when telling his stories appear on the walls in the queue and exit areas.
Also, Br'er Frog substitutes for the role of Uncle Remus himself, as seen at the very beginning of the ride as he proceeds to spin a Br'er Rabbit yarn.
