Just in time for the holidays, the Song of the South set featuring Brer Rabbit and Brer Fox has started to arrive at retailers and being shipped as of this entry!
Walt Disney loved the animal fables penned by Joel Chandler Harris in which clever Brer Rabbit constantly outfoxed crafty Brer Fox—but this time it looks like it’s the hungry fox who has the upper hand.
But never fear, quick-thinking Brer Rabbit will have the last laugh. First brought to life through Disney animation, these fanciful folklore critters have been immortalized in the classic Disney Theme Park attraction Splash Mountain.
These fun-filled sculptures are plussed with a bronze fork and pewter neck on Brer Fox and a pewter pole for Brer Rabbit.
"Cooking Up a Plan" (Brer Rabbit) and "Last Laugh" (Brer Fox) are a two-piece box set, sculpted by Ruben Procopio that will be Limited to Production Year 2010.
Who do YOU think is going to get the Last Laugh between these two? :)
I know many collectors like to see actual photographs of the pieces vs. the images sent when the sculptures are announced, so want to thank my good friend & fellow collector Matthew for sharing some photos of his (click on each image for a larger view). Thanks Matthew!!
