Did You Know?


Though Paul Winchell does return to voice Tigger for the first time since Winnie the Pooh & Christmas Too (1991), his voice was getting weaker, and insisted not singing, only doing the speaking voice, leaving Tigger's other Voice Actor Jim Cummings to do the singing voice separately instead. The same thing applied to the last 2 times where Winchell would voice Tigger, being A Winnie the Pooh Thanksgiving (1998) and Winnie the Pooh: A Valentine for You (1999). See more »

The Narrator: Once, upon the last day of a golden summer, there was a boy... and a bear. The boy, who we shall meet in a moment, was called Christopher Robin. The bear was called Winnie the Pooh. And together, they had many grand adventures in a remarkable place called the Hundred Acre Wood. But the grandest and most extraordinary of all those adventures was still to begin.

Charming film...
28 May 2009 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I don't think it is quite as good as The Many Adaventures of Winnie the Pooh, which was one of the better films of the 60s-70s. Winnie the Pooh's Most Grand Adaventure is a charming and sweet film, that is noticeably quieter in tone to the 1977 film, but for me that is never an excuse for not liking a film. The animation is lovely, with lovely colours, and fairly true in style to the 1977 film. The voice talents are very good, particularly John Fiedler and Paul Winchell as Piglet and Tigger. Jim Cummings is also good as Pooh, but I don't think David Warner was as thoughtful enough a narrator as Sebastian Cabot, though I still liked him. The story is fast moving and the dialogue is delightfully humorous, but there may be some elements that may scare young children. Also, although sweet, adults will find the songs a bit limp, that said Forever and Ever is so touching. All in all, a sweet and charming film. 8/10 Bethany Cox.
