Winnie the Pooh has always been a big part of my childhood. While not quite the best of the video collection, this is a great addition and contains three of the most heart-warming and charming episodes of one of Disney's best ever series The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.
"The Wishing Bear" I just love for how whimsical it is. The beautiful animation and music are still there, likewise with the timeless characters, and on top of that we have one of the more heart-warming stories of the show, one of the show's most touching and sweetest endings and as usual droll writing with a perfect balance of humour and sentiment especially with Tigger's "If only there was two of me...then things would be fun".
"Goodbye Mr Pooh" is like "The Wishing Bear", heart-warming and also nostalgic. Tigger as always shines, but here I love Pooh and Piglet's friendship, very like the sort of relationship you have with a roommate at college. The writing is very funny with some genuinely sweet moments too, I especially love "Goodbye, old friend! I hope you like your new home... at the dump" while the animation is vibrant in colour and elegant in style, the animation is both jaunty and beautiful and the characters from the adorable Pooh to the hilarious Tigger engage.
"Balloonatics" rounds off the video very nicely. The story is engaging and has plenty of the whimsy and childhood innocence of the best Winnie the Pooh stories, and the characters right from Rabbit's hysteria about halfway through to Pooh's irresistible cuteness are hard not to like. I remember this episode for two main things, the song with Pooh in the air holding onto the balloon which has a catchy melody and memorable lyrics, and Pooh's nightmare, which was well...night-marish.
All in all, a heart-warming video. 10/10 Bethany Cox
