Life after Disney: Animation World News talks with former Disney TV animator Tad Stones, who's now working on a direct-to-video Brer Rabbit feature for Universal. Just don't mention Song of the South:

"We’re more self-conscious about that than anybody else, because when you think about it kids haven’t had a chance to see it at all — it’s been several generations since they’ve released the film. If you’re a collector maybe you have the Japanese laserdisc or the British video. It had some of the nicest, liveliest animation that Disney ever did. Unfortunately, it’s buried under this practically unwatchable movie."
