Storyline

An old gray donkey Ia is standing on the shore of the lake and feels sad. Winnie the Pooh comes to him, to whom Ia admits that he has a birthday today, which no one remembered, besides, the donkey somewhere has lost its tail. Later, Winnie the Pooh meets with Piglet, and they decide to congratulate Ia: Winnie the Pooh will give him a pot of honey, and Piglet - a balloon. However, on the way Pooh ate honey and came to the donkey with an empty pot, and Piglet, wishing to give Ia a gift first, hurried so much that he fell and, as a result, became very upset and brought the burst ball to the donkey.

Vinni Pukh i den zabot is another charming Russian Pooh short
9 March 2007 | by tavmSee all my reviews

Another Russian Pooh story. This time the donkey, known from the Pooh stories as Eyeore, is sad because he has no tail. Pooh goes in search of one and finds it attached to a bell that hangs from the treehouse of one Owl. She (yes, in this version it's a she) is offered a bowl of honey from Pooh but she refuses to give the tail in return. Meanwhile, Piglet searches for a flower. I'll stop there and tell you that this short is twice as long as the previous ones at 18 minutes. The music, as usual, is charming and there's humor and sadness that should charm anyone, regardless of age or nationality, interested in all animation. Check it out on YouTube.
