Storyline

Winnie the Pooh, the honey loving silly old bear attempts to get honey from a bee tree, so after climbing the tree didn't work, he borrows Christopher Robin's balloon, dunks himself in mud and floats to the top of the honey tree incognito as a little black rain cloud. After escaping the angry bees, Pooh decides to get honey the old fashion way: getting some from Rabbit, so after stuffing his face with all of Rabbit's honey, Pooh attempts to climb out Rabbit's front door, but becomes stuck! No matter how hard everyone tries, they can't get him out, so they wait for Pooh to lose weight before they can get him out. Then along comes Gopher who agrees to help get Pooh out and almost feeds him more honey! But then one morning, Pooh is finally freed from the doorway and ends up in another sticky situation-quite literally! Written by Dylan Self <robocoptng986127@aol.com>

Alternate Versions

When released in _Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, The (1977)_, , who voiced Christopher Robin, was replaced by a different actor. Furthermore, the closing scene of this short (mainly the animation of the book pages) was altered so as to segue into the next scene rather than bring the short to an end, as is the case with the original short.

A fantastic featurette!
17 May 2006 | by Greatlife675See all my reviews

This is the first of the 4 Winnie the Pooh short films, and a really great one at that, too! Everything is introduced into this short classic, and the storyline fits perfectly. The animation is great and the songs are catchy. The voice cast is perfect, as well. But let me tell you this. I may be in my teenage years, but ANYONE would love Winnie the Pooh. By the way, this is the one out of the four I enjoyed the most through my whole life. Seriously. I do enjoy the other three, too, but if you want to make sure, see my reviews for the others. But you'll find this one more than satisfying. I highly recommend this, as well as the others.
