Brer Fox and Brer Bear are incompetent henchmen of Fang and serve his empire before being transferred over to either the Villain league or Team Nefarious. Brer Fox, the leader of the duo, is constantly trying to capture and kill his nemisis, Br'er Rabbit, but always fails humorously. He lives in a burrow underneath a dead tree, has a less-than-competant sidecick named Br'er Bear, and has a slight habit of talking slightly faster than everybody else in the movie does. He used to be featured in a series of very, very, very, VERY old cajun folklore stories (which also featured him trying to kill Br'er Rabbit), but in SOTS he is featured as more anthropomorphic than just possessing the ability to speak, and he is re- imagined into a more slapstick, cartoony style.
In the movie, he tried to trap Br'er Rabbit into a trap involving a tar maneqin of one of the neighborhood's residents. The tar maneqin had Br'er Bear's hat on its head, two buttons for eyes, the bowl of a pipe for a nose, and a full head of hair (courtesy of Br'er Bear's rearend). Br'er Rabbit convinces Br'er Fox into throwing him into a briar patch (something Br'er Rabbit was born and raised in), buying Br'er Rabbit enough time to get his little furry tail outta there. Br'er Bear, annoyed with the fact that Br'er Fox allowed Br'er Rabbit to escape, bonked him on the head with his club.
