Origins[]

Br'er Raccoon is based on the character (whose original spelling is "Br'er Coon" , a play on the word "Raccoon" which is a term used for several small species of raccoons) of the same name from the Uncle Remus stories often portrayed as a recurring character within the original stories who is a friend of Br'er Rabbit.
