Trivia:
Posters from the initial release include pictures of Piglet and Tigger, who wouldn't appear until the next short, Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day (1968). The design for Tigger is closer to the original Ernest Shepard illustrations than the final design used on screen.See more »

Excellent for Children of All Ages, 19 April 2001
Author: consortpinguin from NH -- the First primary State

The "Winnie the Pooh" cartoons from Disney are classics. This is the quality program that you would want your children to see. And it makes you glad you have children so that you have an excuse to see it too.

They did a wonderful job of adapting the A. A. Milne stories to the screen. It's good clean fun with no "undesirable" elements such as violence or bathroom humor. All the characters are brought to life faithfully and their casting of the voices is perfect. Sterling Holloway IS Winnie.

The story line of this cartoon revolves around Winnie, the honey-loving bear trying various schemes to get his golden delight. He is so funny, stopping at nothing to get some honey, regardless of the practicality of the effort. He uses a toy balloon to float to the bees' nest high up in a tree, but is foiled by the bees.

Each different character has a unique trait. Eeyore shows the depressed side of human nature, always finding the down side of anything. The other characters succeed in cheering him up. Owl is the "educated" one who loves to hear himself talk. Tigger, happy-go-lucky tiger bounces around exuberantly on his coil-spring tail, greeting everyone, and sometimes accidentally knocking them over. The cartoons say a lot about friendship -- friends helping friends.

Very enjoyable -- worth seeing, whether you're a child of 3 or 93.
