    I always thought it was because in the movie the whole thing about the "tar baby" was controversial so that they put brer rabbit stuck in honey instead of the tar so they wouldn't offend people. I'm not totally sure about this though. Does anyone have pictures from the disneyland splash mountain with brer rabbit in the tar? I didn't even know about that until I read this question.

    hmm that is a good question maybe they did it to make the ride more appealing and understandable or maybe it just had something do do with taking the rights of the original story?? who knows good question you got me wondering too!
