Trivia

One of the last Pooh projects to feature Paul Winchell as the voice of Tigger. He'd be replaced by his co-star, Jim Cummings in all future Winnie the Pooh projects starting in 2000. See more »

Goofs

Rabbit accidentally rips the map in half. Tigger chases after the other half right over the ravine. When the tree falls from under him and he falls with the tree, the map starts to drift downward. When Pooh, Piglet, Rabbit & Eeyore look down at Tigger in the ravine and he looks up at him the other half of the map is nowhere to be seen. When Rabbit also jumps in after Piglet, he lets go of the only other piece of the map that they have and Eeyore tries to retrieve it until Rabbit grabs him by the tail and pulls him with him into the ravine to rescue Tigger. However that piece of the map somehow ends up back in Rabbit's possession between his teeth as he holds Eeyore's tail and Piglet's hand. Yet the other half of the map that they've been chasing after is still nowhere to be seen floating down past them in the ravine as they attempt to save Tigger. It eventually reappears when all 5 characters have resurfaced from the mud pool after they'd fell. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
The Narrator: Once, upon the last day of a golden summer, there was a boy... and a bear. The boy, who we shall meet in a moment, was called Christopher Robin. The bear was called Winnie the Pooh. And together, they had many grand adventures in a remarkable place called the Hundred Acre Wood. But the grandest and most extraordinary of all those adventures was still to begin.

A Lesser Pooh Effort, Still Strong
9 May 2012 | by (Here) – See all my reviews

Pooh's Grand Adventure: The Search For Christopher Robin was a film I very much valued as a younger child, as I did with all the Pooh films. So it was a very nostalgic, and wonderful reunion, when I saw the film again, years later. It hasn't held up as well as other Pooh films, but it's a treat to be sure.

Pooh's Grand Adventure is about Pooh, Rabbit, Tigger, Piglet, and Eeyore, and their search for Christopher Robin, whom they believe have gone to "Skull."

I must warn you, the first 15 minutes are considerably better than anything else in the movie. That's not to say the rest is bad, but it's a little under-par for a Pooh film, while the first 15 minutes is arguably, Pooh at his very best. These first 15 minutes balance, humor, emotions, whimsy, and simple, yet elegant imagery. Only Pooh and Christopher Robin appear at first, which adds to the simplicity.

The rest of the film, never tops, or even comes close to these first 15 minutes, but it's still enjoyable.

Pooh's Grand Adventure is much darker than anything Pooh has brought us so far. It's less funny as well. Sure, there's still a lot of gags, most of which will evoke smiles and often laughs, but by comparison, there's much less than in previous (or even future) Pooh outings.

There are songs, all very whimsical. Some are beautiful, others are funny. They all work, and not one should evoke a reach towards the skip button.

There's a lot of emotion here, nearly as much as in The Tigger Movie. Things like fear and being alone come up, and it's surprisingly touching.

The voice cast is wonderful. Voices are captured perfectly. The stand out performances as Christopher Robin, Rabbit, and Tigger are wonderful. Kanga and Roo, one might note, has been completely omitted.

Pooh's Grand Adventure doesn't reach the dramatic heights of Pooh's other endeavors, but this is still whimsical, emotional, and amusing for all.
