Storyline

Pooh is back and this time he's gonna blow you away. Almost literally. When Pooh's friend Gopher warns him that it's Windsday, Pooh goes off to wish Piglet a Happy Windsday, but Piglet is lifted into the air by the strong winds, Pooh grabs Piglet's scarf, which unravels into a single string, and looks to be flying Piglet like a kite. They arrive at Owl's house, the wind blows it down and Owl inquires as to whether Pooh did it. Eeyore agrees to find a new house for Owl, but one night, Pooh gets a visit from an unusual new friend - Tigger, a rambunctious tiger who likes honey but hates it just the same, and warns Pooh about Heffalumps and Woozles, who steal honey. But Heffalumps and Woozles are only half of Pooh's worries now, for a huge rain storm has set on the Hundred Acre Wood. Everybody is swimming in their homes. Pooh inadvertently saves Piglet from a waterfall so they have a hero party. Eeyore then barges in and announces he has found a new home for Owl; unfortunately the house ...

Fun Even for Non-Fans

Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day (1968)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Oscar-winning short from Disney has Pooh, Tigger, Piglet and the rest of the gang being forced to leave their homes after a storm with heavy rainfall comes through. I'll admit right up front that I'm really not that big of a Pooh fan. I didn't care too much for him as a kid and my tolerance level hasn't grown much more in the three decades that followed. With that said, I think even a person who hates Pooh would still find this film to be a winner simply because of the imagination that's on full display. The greatest sequence in the entire film happens during a dream sequence where the term psychedelic would certainly fit. The song is a very good once but the wonderful use of colors is what really makes this sequence jump off the screen. There are also some very funny bits to be found in the film including one inside Owl's house where everyone keeps sliding around the place. The animation quality is certainly very high but that's exactly what you expect when it comes to Disney. Fans of Pooh will certainly love this film but even those non-fans should be entertained.
