I know this is a bit off-topic since it's about Brer Bear's other end, but the "wanted" poster of Brer Bear in the queue at WDW's Splash Mtn. is one of my all-time favorite Disney ride details. Anywhere.

The older posters are the versions I saw on my visit (1993!!!), and they really are the best. Why the heck did MK replace them with a "nice" version??? I hope DL never updates Snow White's Witch Warning Sign with a beaming, friendly "sweet" witch! :D
Maybe too many said they looked gross?

A lot of people don’t know this, but there’s an AA Owl in the queue for Tokyo’s Splash that talks on a loop, I’m guessing giving some kind of background for the attraction’s story. Despite having a decent grasp on Japanese I’ve never been able to understand him though.

Yup. I'd be interested as to how Japanese are introduced to the Uncle Remus tales, since I think Southern U.S. culture is considered a pretty crucial cultural background for those stories. I also wish I could understand more of the on-ride dialogue in Japanese to see if there's any kind of dialect used by the characters to relay "Southern" type speech.

Song of the South has had a laserdisc and (I think) a VHS release in Japan, so that’d probably help.

It's actually better...'cause WDI concept art wouldn't happen until after an expensive "research trip."
"To find inspiration for our newest themed land, the Imagineers took an all expenses paid research trip to a pre existing location known as "Paradise Pier". This gave the Imagineers new inspiration and a general direction they wanted to take our newest Pixar experience, even influencing the layout and attractions."
