Wild West Winnie
15 November 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

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.

For me, "The Good, The Bad and the Tigger" is one of the classic episodes of 'The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh'. Like with all the episodes of the show (but with this episode being one of the strongest examples), one remembers at least one thing about "The Good, The Bad and the Tigger" for a long time after and this is just on first viewing, furthermore there is so much to it that makes one want to re-watch it more than once due to its enormous re-play value. With each viewing, there's always something new to like about them each time and what came over as particularly good on first viewing have yet to become stale.

The animation is very bright, well drawn and colourful, everything looking lush, detailed and smooth. Love the Wild West settings that echo fond memories of "Paw and Order" (another one of my favourites). 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 and the storytelling have a perfect mix of whimsy, drollness, wit, charm and childhood innocence, including one of the show's best ever opening scenes, good messaging without force-feeding or laying it on too thick, Pooh not realising the seriousness of the term swinging and thrilling scenes with the train intersected with scenes at Christopher Robin's house. It was great to see Gopher in two roles, particularly a hoot as the hangman, and Piglet in a more authority driven role, but Tigger is particularly delightful here.

Love the characters and their chemistry, as well as the gang's loyalty to Christopher Robin, and the voice acting is excellent from particularly Jim Cummings. Everything about "The Good, The Bad and the Tigger" fills me with such joy. The only minor issue is that that jail cell looked far too easy to escape from.

Overall, a Winnie the Pooh classic. 10/10 Bethany Cox
