Storyline

Eeyore is gloomy, like always, but more so now. His birthday is right around the corner and everybody has forgotten. It didn't cheer him up any when Tigger "accidentally" knocks Eeyore into the river. Pooh invents a new game, "Pooh Sticks", and everyone contributes to Eeyore's party, there's flat balloons, storage honey pots with Owl's hand writing on them, and a game of Pooh Sticks which Tigger claims he likes, but immediately hates it because he lost. It turns out to be a happy birthday celebration after all. Written by Dylan Self <robocoptng986127@aol.com>

Happy birthday, Eeyore!
25 July 2007 | by (The world of artists) – See all my reviews

"Winnie the Pooh and a Day for Eeyore" isn't as good as the 3 earlier shorts but it's still likable.

The picture quality of this short is slightly inferior comparing to the earlier ones and that is part of the reason why it isn't as good.

Another reason is because most of the cast is different. Unfortunately we have no longer Sebastian Cabot, Junius Matthews, Barbara Luddy and Sterling Holloway. On the other hand, luckily we still have Ralph Wright, Paul Winchell, John Fiedler and Hal Smith in this short - and that's a good sign. Jim Cummings does a decent job as the voice of Winnie the Pooh, but Sterling Holloway was better.

This short is mostly dedicated to the gloomy donkey Eeyore.

However, he is feeling more miserable than ever for two reasons. First, because Tigger bounced him and accidentally threw him into a river. And second, because it's his birthday and nobody remembered that, which causes Eeyore to believe that nobody cares about him.

In a try to help Eeyore getting off the river, Winnie the Pooh accidentally throws a rock to his belly, nearly causing poor Eeyore to drown.

When Pooh finally finds out that today is Eeyore's birthday, he decides to give him a jar of honey as a present, while Piglet decides to give him a balloon. But accidentally Pooh eats the honey and Piglet breaks the balloon after falling.

Surprisingly, Eeyore enjoys the empty jar and the broken balloon. Another surprise is that Eeyore smiles. We never see him smiling.

In the meantime, Cristopher Robin returns and they all celebrate Eeyore's birthday with a new game named "Pooh Sticks". Of course that Tigger says "That's what Tiggers do best" and then he contradicts himself.

"Winnie the Pooh and a Day for Eeyore" is still a very enjoyable experience and luckily it is available as an extra in the 25th Anniversary Edition DVD of "The Many Adventures of Winie the Pooh".

These Winnie the Pooh's shorts/stories are also a great way to learn and see how valuable friendship is.
