Our favourite bear strikes gold again in a wonderful conclusion to the second season, 25 October 2016
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

As a fan of Winnie the Pooh, 'The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh' was always one of my favourite shows as a child. Not all childhood favourites have held up, but 'The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh' is one of the strongest examples of those that have.

While the original three 60s-70s short films ('Honey Tree', 'Blustery Day' and 'Tigger Too') and the 1977 'The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh' are just a little better, 'The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh' is one of the Winnie the Pooh franchise's high points. 'The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh' is, as said a few times already, a rare example of a show with not a bad episode for the whole four seasons it ran, and has something for kids and adults alike. "Pooh Moon" and "Caws and Effect" make for a wonderful two-episode conclusion to the second season.

The animation in both episodes is very bright, well drawn and colourful, everything looking lush, detailed and smooth. In addition to that, the music is playfully jaunty and beautifully orchestrated, enhancing sadder moments with poignant and particularly lush and emotional scoring, whimsical parts with an energy but also pathos and the more playful moments with a jaunty touch. The theme tune is very rousing and one of the catchiest theme songs of any animated show of the late 80s.

Writing has a perfect mix of whimsy, drollness, wit, charm and childhood innocence, shining in both episodes.

"Pooh Moon" has an inspired story, again beautiful animation, all the characters especially Tigger delighting and some of the funniest dialogue of the video with "The Grab-Me-Gotcha!/It's In my Sleeping Bag! HELP! Don't let it grab me! I Surrender!/ Scaredy Cat" and also "fiddlesticks. You just grew too much popping' your corn".

"Caws and Effect" sees Pooh trying to help Rabbit with his garden from the crows. Aside from the wonderful characters and great animation, as well as the fun story, what struck me as so good about this episode was the catchy music which I can still remember the beat ten or so years later and the writing. Often see Tigger with the best lines(and he does have a very amusing exchange with Rabbit when they get lost), but here Pooh steals the show, not just with "Caw...Bother" and "you're not crows, are you?" but also with his adorable personality.

Love all the characters, especially Tigger as well as their friendship, family-like bond and loyalty regardless of arguments and character flaws. The voice acting is uniformly excellent.

Overall, two more wonderful episodes to a show that is consistently great. 10/10 Bethany Cox
