An obscure but brilliant match-up of Winnie the Pooh cartoons and dialogue
from "Apocalypse Now." The Pooh characters and Coppola's characters make
some surprisingly well-suited pairs, such as a frantic Piglet mouthing
Dennis Hopper's rants, or the casting of Rabbit as the machinist who is
"wound too tight for the jungle." The filmmakers even reversed the
technique for the Col. Kurtz character, combining footage of Brando with
dialogue from Eeyore. And then there's that great closing line: "Oh
The tape I saw also featured two similar combinations of wholesome animation and twisted cinema: "Blue Peanuts," with the Charles Schulz characters mouthing dialogue from "Blue Velvet" (Snoopy as Dennis Hopper...incredible!), and a "music video" of the Archies performing The Sex Pistols' "God Save the Queen."
Apocalypse Pooh (1987). Pure genius is the only way I can describe this
animated short. The film makers splice in a chopped up Disney cartoon
featuring Winnie the Pooh and his comrades with the insane audio
soundtrack from Apocalypse Now (1979) and they pull it off. Winnie the
Pooh stars as Willard as he looks for the notorious Colonel Kurtz
(played by Eeyore). The gun boat crew is also featured as well. Piglet,
Tigger and that weird looking rabbit make appearances as well. To try
and describe the short would be an injustice to those who haven't
watched it yet. I felt that it's better than the original movie (that's
I would try to find a copy of this brilliant short. Fun stuff that wont disappoint you one bit!
Good enough to make you wish it were longer, while being smart enough
to stop before it wears out its welcome this melding of Pooh and Viet
Nam is a short treat.
Almost impossible to find this film is worth searching out if you like film conventions turned on their heads. This is a clever parody makes you wish that you had been both clever and talented enough to think of it.
You will forgive the lack of details but the film being so short I'd rather not ruin any of the bits for you.
8 out of 10. See it if you can.
This may have been the benchmark of all the Flash-animated film
parodies on the Internet (although Flash nor the Internet did not exist
back in 1987), but it still is terrible. Made in 1987, this is made by
a nerd who matched up random Winnie-the-Pooh scenes with dialogue from
Apocalypse Now. Nothing more, nothing less. Also, the video quality was
terrible, as if this was bootlegged, home-recorded or something like
that. I don't recommend this to people who like animated Internet film
parodies such as "One Ring to Rule Them All" or "The Matrix Has You",
as all this is is dialogue from one movie thrown into Pooh cartoons.
This is interesting for those who want to see the primordial soup from
where Internet film-based cartoons came from, although "Apocalypse
Pooh" was not made through the Internet (you can see it on IFILM). Not
recommended for kids because of "S___" thrown in a couple times. The
only interesting part is the "Satisfaction" scene matched with Pooh
getting carried away by the kite.
