Disney's track record when it comes to adapting other source material to the screen is mixed, to say the least. But with their adaptaions of Pooh,they succeed marvelously. This short won the Academy Award for Animated Short and it's easy to see why: everything clicks. The voice casting is great, the design is superb, animation is top-notch and the source material is accorded with the respect and affection it merits. By all means, find this and watch it if you can. As of this writing, it is in-print. Most joyously recommended.
