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.

"Christopher Robin and I could do nothing."
28 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pooh's Grand Adventure, while inferior to the previous installment, is still perfectly acceptable in its own right. This is the saddest Winnie the Pooh film in my memory, but is yet the most delightful because of its message and the way it shows it. The moral is even if you're not accompanied by that special someone, you have them in your heart at all times. What animated film dares tell you something as strong as Winnie the Pooh? My favorite thing that I've admired about the Pooh cartoons is the fact that they are an act of innocence and are as gentle as a feather. There is never any mention of "death" in the show, or even the slightest hint. Even if someone falls from an very high ledge or tree, they brush themselves off, and move on to the next activity.

The plot is reminiscent of the latest movie installment. Christopher Robin is going back to school, but because of Pooh's desire not to hear the news he has, he doesn't tell him. Pooh wakes up to an unaccompanied tree, and no Christopher Robin in sight. Only a note and a jar of honey on Pooh's doorstep. He rounds up the gang, with the exception of Kanga and Roo, and head over to Owl's with the note and jar of honey. Owl says the note says something about Christopher Robin needs help over at School, which he mistakes for "skull." They all become braver than a bee, and stronger than they seem and go on a hunt for their friend.

The sadness and tear-jerking moments flood this short but sweet special. But they aren't like a crying fit more than like a beautiful sadness. Even though things look down, the gang is optimistic about Christopher Robin's return and they keep smiling all the way through the trip.

Like many Pooh specials, there isn't much to say either than they are wonderfully animated, wonderfully told, and just an all out pleasure on screen. Each character all targets a specific feeling or emotion in one's character, and together, it's like they fill everyone's set of emotions. It's beautiful beyond the simplicity and happiness it brings to children.

And yes, I did cry. Three times.

Voiced by: Jim Cummings, Ken Sansom, John Fiedler, Paul Winchell, Peter Cullen, and Brady Bluhm. Directed by: Karl Geurs.
