Pooh, a bear of very little brain, and all his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood sing their way through adventures that encompass honey, bees, bouncing, balloons, Eeyore's birthday, floods, and Pooh sticks. Written by

(8/10) Classic animated version of a wonderful story
For many people, the adventures of Winnie the Pooh and his friends in the Hundred Acre Woods represent a pinnacle of childhood. Disney's adaptation has immortalised the best of the classic Milne stories and provided the world with an animated film that remains unsurpassed for its good nature and unadulterated joy.
Three stories have been synthesised for this feature: Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree, Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day and Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too. The featurettes are linked by a narrator who nicely blends the lines in this episodic movie. The vocal performances are all excellent, with Sterling Holloway as the tubby bear of the title and Paul Winchell as his bouncy pal, Tigger. Also a standout in the small cast of characters is Eeyore - voiced by Ralph Wright - whose many one liners cater for even the grouchiest of grown ups in the audience.
Disney has added a few neat little touches to Milne's source material, including the Gopher who runs around proclaiming "I'm not in the book, you know!". But the studio has stayed true to the skew logic that is at the heart of these classic stories - and that is why this film works. Watch this one whether you're looking for some good, clean entertainment for the kids or if you just want to return to the happiness of your childhood: it's a great film for everyone.
