Mark my words: Soyuzmultfilm's version of Pooh is the better one.
10 November 2018 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

If you only know Disney's mushy version of Winnie the Pooh, then you don't know the character at all. Soviet animation studio Soyuzmultfilm made a series about A.A. Milne's bear, depicting him and his friends as mentally mature animals just trying to do the right thing for each other. In "Vinni-Pukh i den zabot" ("Winnie-the-Pooh and a Busy Day" in English), Eeyore has lost his tail, so Pooh tries to find it while Piglet gets him a balloon. Sure enough, complications arise.

It's not as glossy as Disney's series, but more interesting: more subtle and not as cutesy. This series does justice to the books; the more famous version was basically an excuse to sell merchandise. I recommend this one, and also the Soviet version of "Mary Poppins" (yes, there was one).
