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>

Did You Know?

Trivia

Gopher often says, "I'm not in the book." This has a double meaning: he's not in the phone book and he is also not in the A.A. Milne book. Gopher is the only Pooh character that did not originate in one of Milne's books. He was originally created to replace Piglet, until they decided to bring Piglet in for Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day (1968). See more »

Goofs

Roo and Gopher pull Eeyore's tail off in the process of trying to pull Pooh out of Rabbit's front door. However, when Eeyore is seen at the honey tree immediately following Pooh's extrication (and subsequently getting stuck again in the honey tree), his tail is back on. See more »

Quotes

Owl: Well, if it isn't Pooh Bear.
Winnie the Pooh: Oh, hello, Owl.
Owl: Splendid day to be up and about one's business, eh?
[Notices Pooh is stuck on Rabbit's door]
Owl: I say, are you stuck?
Winnie the Pooh: No, just resting, and thinking, and humming to myself.
[Hums]
Owl: You, sir, are stuck. A wedged bear in a great tightness. In a word, irremovable.

Alternate Versions

When released in _Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, The (1977)_, Bruce Reitherman, 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.

Best of the Pooh stories, and FUN!
5 September 2002 | by piccione2000See all my reviews

This is Pooh's first adventure. It is in my opinion, the best of the Pooh offerings. Excellent songs with wonderful animation. It is great for people of all ages. Each character is introduced nicely, and the ideas are fresh and clever. Join Pooh and his friends here for a lot of adventure, involving his love for honey, where he tries to get it from the tree, to when he eats at Rabbit's, and to the end, when he gets all the3 honey he will want. This story is great for everyone. Kids will love it, and will want to see it over and over. A real winner!
