I have to say I disagree with the previous reviewer. I love Winnie the Pooh, and I found A Valentine For You absolutely adorable. Of the Winnie the Pooh specials, in some way, A Valentine For You is perhaps the least well known. Wheras Halloween and Christmas were celebrated with Boo to You Too! and A Very Merry Pooh Year, and are holidays that the target audience would be more likely to celebrate, Valentines Day with this not so much. While I don't quite consider A Valentine For You as good as those two, I still love it. The animation is colourful and bright, with the backgrounds and character designs appealing, and the music while as memorable as I'm Not Afraid has a certain simple charm to it. The writing is droll with some inspired word-play while the story is really heartwarming and still with the childhood innocence that makes Winnie the Pooh so special. I loved the themes of love, unselfishness and friendships, these themes are important, and never once did A Valentine For You feel overly-didactic. The characters are as engaging as before and the voice acting is great, even if Paul Winchell sounds noticeably older here the wit and humour of the ever lovable Tigger is still there. All in all, adorable and really worth watching. 10/10 Bethany Cox
