Storyline

It's Thanksgiving time in the Hundred Acre Wood and Winnie the Pooh and all his friends bring food for the big dinner. Piglet brings acorns, Pooh brings honey, Owl brings biscuits, Gopher brings lemonade, and Tigger brings ice cream. But then, Rabbit walks in and tells them their Thanksgiving dinner was unacceptable and informs them that a real Thanksgiving dinner includes turkey, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie, so Pooh and his friends set out to find those very items.

Well I loved it....
5 January 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I do also respectfully disagree with the negative reviewer. I am a big fan of anything Winnie the Pooh, and I love the holiday specials. I don't think it is as good as A Very Merry Pooh Year or Boo To You Too! as far as the holiday Winnie the Pooh specials go, but I personally loved it. Not only was it very funny with the droll dialogue and inspired word-play, but the ending was very touching and a good lesson I think to learn from.

The story is simple, not too episodic and lively in pace, and written with heart and charm evident. The animation is nice and colourful, maybe not as elegant as The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh or The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh but it is better than the animation of Seasons of Giving. The characters are well drawn, Rabbit is a tad scratchy-looking, but I can forgive that. The music bounces along nicely with some of the more poignant-sounding parts not too schmaltzy.

The characters are still timeless, I've always loved Tigger the most, though Piglet is adorable and Pooh has always been my favourite animated bear because he is so cute and funny. I do think though some people are too hard on Rabbit, sometimes yes he is a grouch but he is a kind soul at heart, plus I am probably not the only person to notice this, but of all the Winnie the Pooh characters he is the only one that actually learns from his mistakes.

Moving away from that, I also thought the voice acting was great, Paul Winchell may have been getting rather long in the tooth as Tigger at this point but the zest and exuberance is still there. Jim Cummings is as solid as ever, likewise with John Fiedler and Peter Cullen. Overall, a very nice Thanksgiving special. 10/10 Bethany Cox
