Spoiled by their upbringing with no idea what wild life is really like, four animals from New York Central Zoo escape, unwittingly assisted by four absconding penguins, and find themselves in Madagascar, among a bunch of merry lemurs
The original trailer for the movie, as well as some of the TV spots, had the song "Semi-Charmed Kind of Life" by the rock group Third Eye Blind. This had to be changed because the song is about being addicted to crystal meth. See more »
Between 10 to 15 minutes into the movie, Tigger and Roo visit Owl. At a certain moment, Tigger empties the sugar pot in his cup of tea to make it tastier. A little bit later, when Tigger shakes hands with Owl to thank him, all the sugar has gone back from the cup to the sugar pot. See more »
[Reciting the letter]
Dear Tigger, just a note to say:...
Winnie The Pooh:
...stay safe and sound...
We're always there for you.

The credits play over pictures from different scenes in the movie, done in the style of Ernest H. Shepard's original illustrations. See more »
But it should have been a bit longer. 77 minutes is not enough. I have always loved Disney's animation of the Winnie the Pooh TV show and I was way excited when I first learned of this movie. 100 acre wood looks as magical as it always has done and is presented very well in this feature.
The story itself is a bit childish but still manages to have balls when it has Tigger FAIL to find his family. Although I would have liked him too I respect the ending they went for.
Although this film isn't to everyone's tastes (I know it seems a little fruity a guy of 20 can like this film) I say you should see this movie, preferably with kids. It's perfect child fodder and good entertainment. Not just family entertainment. Should be longer though.
