On Saturday Animation Resources volunteer, Eric Graf brought by another treasure for us to digitize… a 1949 edition of the Disney Giant Golden Book, "Uncle Remus Stories". It features a spectacular cover by Mary Blair and many beautiful interior illustrations by Al Dempster and Bill Justice.
This book is interesting, not just for its relationship to the rarely seen Disney film, Song of the South, but for the material that doesn’t appear in the film. Along with the familiar stories about the Tar Baby and Brer Rabbit’s Laffin’ Place, the book illustrates a dozen other stories like "De Great Rabbit Terrapin Race", "Brer Fox and de Stolen Goobers" and "Why de Cricket Fambly Lives in Chimbleys".

Milton is an amazing artist… His work is informed by a diverse variety of influences, from Japanese art to Terrytoons. His compositions and line reflect a distillation of the New York cartooning style, while still remaining uniquely his own. I can’t think of a single living cartoonist whose work in any way resembles Milton’s. He’s truly one of a kind.
Milton kindly agreed to let us post this entire story adapted from a short story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle…
