Un-Valentine's Day in the Hundred Acre Wood
21 October 2016 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

As a fan of Winnie the Pooh, 'The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh' was always one of my favourite shows as a child. Not all childhood favourites have held up, but 'The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh' is one of the strongest examples of those that have.

While the original three 60s-70s short films ('Honey Tree', 'Blustery Day' and 'Tigger Too') and the 1977 'The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh' are just a little better, 'The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh' is one of the Winnie the Pooh franchise's high points. 'The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh' is, as said a few times already, a rare example of a show with not a bad episode for the whole four seasons it ran, and has something for kids and adults alike.

"Un-Valentine's Day" is impossible to dislike, and a great depiction of Valentine's Day (not celebrated as much as Halloween and Christmas) if done even better with Winnie the Pooh in 'A Valentine for You'.

The animation in "Un-Valentine's Day" is very bright, well drawn and colourful, everything looking lush, detailed and smooth. In addition to that, the music is playfully jaunty and beautifully orchestrated, enhancing sadder moments with poignant and particularly lush and emotional scoring, whimsical parts with an energy but also pathos and the more playful moments with a jaunty touch. The theme tune is very rousing and one of the catchiest theme songs of any animated show of the late 80s.

Writing has a perfect mix of whimsy, drollness, wit, charm and childhood innocence. The episode is very sweet, without being too sugary, and is often extremely funny.

The show has many wonderful quotes, and "Un-Valentine's Day" is no exception. I especially enjoyed Piglet's "I AM CUUUUUPIIIID!"(repeated over and over again in by far the best scene of the episode) and "Actually it wasn't me/Then Why Did You Confess?/I'm not very good under pressure". The highlight though is the hilarious ruination of Rabbit's play, with Tigger's "MAKE-UP!" and (truly) explosive finale being the best parts.

All the characters are all delightful as is their chemistry which in some way anchors the show. They are true to character and their personalities distinct. The voice acting is uniformly excellent.

In summary, great episode and impossible to dislike. 10/10 Bethany Cox
