The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (1988–1991)
User ReviewsReview this title
Another reason I enjoy this show so much is because it helped me go through some of the more turbulent times in my life. You can say the witty dialogue and such helped calm me down.
Not only is it entertaining, but it also teaches kids important lessons on life with classic yet flawed characters. For example, Piglet is very intelligent and possesses a kind heart, yet he is paranoid and cowardly. His friend Pooh is a bit braver and almost as nice, yet he's a little...empty in the head. And the list goes on.
This is a great show that helps young kids, and even older ones get through life.
Oh. Sorry. I love those songs! Now, Disney's 1988 cartoon series "The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" was based on the 1977 film with a similar name. Here, Pooh and Friends finally have a series of their own. This is probably the friendliest of all the Disney TV cartoons, and all the episodes are just right for all ages!!!!!
This ran on ABC and Disney Channel for several years (and Disney Channel, though it's now STUPID, still shows this at 4:30 A.M.!!!!!) and it reran over and over and... Anyhow, I was lucky enough to see this play very early in the morning on Disney, as I just mentioned. Just so you know because this, Buzz Lightyear, and Timon and Pumbaa (played at near noon) are the only GOOD things that you will ever see on Disney as of now.
"Winnie the Pooh" is a favorite for all ages. I highly agree!!!!!
And Disney, if you're reading this, please release this wonderful show on DVD. I can guarantee that a lot of people will buy it, me included!!!
My very favorite episode is the one in which Rabbit learns how to really love and take care of someone by taking in an orphaned baby bird. He has to learn to let go of the people that he loves which was a hard lesson for him to learn because he just learned to let down his guard and love someone. Even as a younger kid, I got misty eyed at the end of that episode.
What follows is my very favorite quote from the entire series. It's from the episode I mentioned just now...piglet and pooh are sitting, watching the sunset...
Piglet: And for the longest time I thought Rabbit didn't like her. Pooh: Sometimes people care too much. I think it's called love. Piglet: Oh dear...do you think we should tell Rabbit? Pooh: No, I believe he already knows.
If any of you have kids, you should seriously look on ebay or something for these cartoons. They are good cartoons that deal with a lot that kids have to deal with. I don't have kids, but if I ever do someday, they are going to get plenty of Winnie the Pooh!! (Not just the show, but the movies and books....*grin*)
The episodes take you into the carefree and animated world of the Hundred Acre Wood, where Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends live, each portrayed as having a unique and memorable personality including the depressed Eeyore, the annoyed and garden-loving Rabbit, the wise Owl, the gentle and concerned Piglet, the hilarious Gopher, the protective Kanga, the inquisitive Roo, and the hyperactive Tigger.
Each episode is full of adventures, light-hearted humor and beautifully depicted messages of friendship - all set behind an innocent, carefree, and peaceful woods. You get to see the characters solve the problems of the day in their whimsical and thoughtful ways.
The heartwarming stories are heartfelt and are great for the entire family, leaving unforgettable childhood memories.
