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>

Quotes

Eeyore: Tigger, I'd be happy to tell you my secret for winning at Poohsticks.
Tigger: [eagerly] Uh, you would?
Eeyore: It's very easy. You just have to let your stick drop in a twitchy sort of way.
Tigger: Oh yeah, I forgot to twitch. That was my problem.
[twitches, then bounces]
Tigger: Hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo!
[we hear a crash]
Eeyore: Bounced again.

Horrendous
22 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Totally unmotivated character choices, abysmal character animation (Pooh's descent to the river after tripping over a tree root is a low point), awful voice work, boring and superficial. Shows a complete lack of interest in what children might find entertaining or amusing. It is packed with extraneous slapstick that arises out of nowhere and amounts to nothing. Each and every character has their central thesis violated and mangled. A blight on the original 3 shorts, and it goes without saying that all considerations of the original book were thrown out the window.

Fans of the original three shorts understand why they are justifiably regarded as pinnacles among Disney's achievements. Consistent attention to detail, to character development, to beautifully realized character animation. They stand out as works of genius. Even when they descend to low comedy, as when Tigger encounters Rabbit on the ice, they are still charming and believable.

A Day for Eeyore simply has nothing to say, no point of view, and is an insult to the work of the great Disney artists who, by virtue of their loving craftsmanship, humor, and rigorous regard for pace, structure and common sense, established the Pooh franchise for eternity.
