About This Item
This “Bear” series of travel bugs are each named for fictional bears of children’s literature, comic books, cartoons, mythology and animated shorts or features.
Br'er Fox and Br'er Bear (also spelled Brer Fox and Brer Bear) are fictional characters from the Uncle Remus folktales adapted and compiled by Joel Chandler Harris. Both are shown in the figure. Br’er is a contraction of Brother. Uncle Remus is a collection of animal stories, songs, and oral folklore, collected from Southern United States African-Americans. Many of the stories have a moral, much like those of Aesop's Fables. Uncle Remus is a kindly old former slave who serves as a storytelling device, passing on the folktales to children gathered around him. My mother read the book to me and my sisters. In the animated sequences of the 1946 Walt Disney-produced film Song of the South, Brer Fox is the primary villain (depicted as comically devious and cruel), while Brer Bear is his dim-witted sidekick. The two are constantly hunting, but getting outwitted by, Br’er Rabbit. Br’er Bear is usually carrying a club with which he is going to knock someone’s head off. The characters also appeared in comic strip form.
