Long ago, it seems, last Friday, lived in one country a bear cub under the name of Winnie the Pooh. And why under the name? Because, above his door was the inscription: "Winnie the Pooh," and he lived under it. Once Winnie the Pooh went to the forest to have a little refreshment - he always was not averse to refreshment. In addition, he was a poet and in his spare time composed poems and even songs. Written by Peter-Patrick76 (peter-patrick@mail.com)

The artistic solution of the animation combines the "children's" drawings of backgrounds (for example, in the background there are huge snails, dragonflies sitting on giant mushrooms, trees on which simultaneously grow apples, plums and some other fruits). See more »

Not your Grandpa's "Winnie the Pooh"
10 April 2004 | by Angel_MeiruSee all my reviews

I remember one day, at my local Library and while I was looking for some foreign cult titles in the Video/DVD section, I came across some anthology of animated titles from Russia and former Soviet Countries and one of them, were three "Winnie the Pooh" titles. I had to check them out, to see what they were like.

And to my surprise, most of the stories in these three animated shorts, are closely based off the original A.A. Milne books. The only thing missing was the Christopher Robin character (rumor has it by request that the real life Chris Milne, whom this character was based on, was uncomfortable with his fame and thus, wanted the studio to exclude Christopher Robin). But it is very good and nice details in the drawings and animation. I was rather pleased.

But I just wish that all three of the Russian "Winnie the Pooh" films would be more available to the public outside of Russia and the former Soviet countries. That would be sooooo nice!
