Tigger:That's him! Though I always thought he was taller.
Winnie the Pooh:Um, it's awfully cold out here in the cold - if I could come in?
Tigger:[opening the door a third time, then closing it] Why sure, you - HEY, wait a minute! Isn't Santy Claws supposed to come down the chimaney?

Merry Christmas Pooh bear, and a happy new year!, 4 January 2012
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

Maybe I am biased, because I love Winnie the Pooh, loving AA Milne's charming, whimsical stories, a vast majority of the films and specials(especially The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and of course the four shorts Honey Tree, Blustery Day, Tigger Too and Day for Eeyore) and the TV series The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.

Winnie the Pooh: A Very Merry Pooh Year is wonderful. It is beautifully animated with bright colours, pristine backgrounds and well-drawn colours with the best animation coming in the featured Christmas classic Winnie the Pooh and Christmas Too. The music is very memorable, with some Christmas favourites and lovely incidental music.

The writing also delights, with a perfect mix of funny, charming and moving moments and droll dialogue. I especially found the ending quite touching, and if you haven't seen Eeyore happy, wearing a Pooh shirt, on his hind legs and eating honey, then you haven't lived.

I equally loved the story, so sweet and charming and manages to maintain the childhood innocence that makes the stories, movies and series so endearing to me. The characters are forever timeless, Tigger has always been my favourite character but Pooh is so lovable, Piglet adorable and Rabbit(I love how he learns from his mistakes in general, and he is pretty much the only character in a sense that does) likable once you get to know him.

The voice acting is terrific. John Fiedler is still stellar as the timid Piglet, Michael Gough inspired and very funny as Gopher and Ken Samson very effective as Rabbit. Jim Cummings is very good as Pooh and even better as Tigger, though we mustn't dispute the brilliant Paul Winchell as his voice in the Christmas Too story featured.

Overall, really charming and wonderful, a must see for anyone who loves these characters and stories. 10/10 Bethany Cox
