Trivia

For the Backson song, the animators' drawings were inked with wide-tipped felt markers and given a rough texture in post production to make them look like chalkboard drawings. See more »

Quotes

Narrator: Pooh left feeling unsatisfied and a little out of sorts. In fact, he was so distracted by his rumbly tummy that he didn't notice that he was walking onto the next paragraph.
Pooh: What is a paragraph?
Narrator: It's a group of sentences that form a complete thought.
Pooh: Is there honey in this paragraph?
[waggles eyebrows]
Narrator: Oh, sorry, Pooh, no.
Pooh: Well then, I don't find it very useful.

That Warm Fuzzy Feeling
25 April 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Going to see this movie was like stepping back into childhood. I had the 1977 movie on VHS when I was young and I wore that tape out with countless viewings. I was also a big fan of the cartoon show than ran during the nineties and the many direct-to-video films that came out around that time too. So I already walk into this movie with nostalgia on my mind - knowing roughly what to expect, and the film delivers pretty much what you've seen before.

It follows the structure of the 1977 movie mostly, telling three different stories over the length of the film. Which may have worked in 1977, but today if you cut the film apart into these three sections you could just release them as specials on the Disney channel.

The voice work is as good as it needs to be. Jim Cummings is enigmatic as always and Bud Luckey is a nice addition as Eeyore. It's not Disney's best dubbing job but far from their worst.

The film is far too short, there was definitely time for another story should there have been one. 70 minutes shouldn't really be acceptable for a cinema release, under any circumstances.

All qualms I have with the movie are overshadowed by its innocence and joy. Children who go to see this movie may love it, but adults may love it more.
