"Rabbit Takes a Holiday" and "Eeyi Eeyi Eeyore" continue the show's consistently great standard
31 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. "Rabbit Takes a Holiday" and "Eeyi Eeyi Eeyore" are no exceptions.

The animation in both episodes 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, shining in both episodes. One really feels sorry for Rabbit in "Rabbit Takes a Holiday", while the gang's chaotic antics in the episode are simply hilarious. "Eeyi Eeyi Eeyore" is a perfect example of what makes Eeyore such an endearing character in the first place even with his pessimism, love his attempts at gardening showing that he isn't as experienced as initially thought by Rabbit.

Love all the characters, especially Tigger as well as their friendship, family-like bond and loyalty regardless of arguments and character flaws. The voice acting is uniformly excellent.

All in all, 'The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh' still holds up favourably as a wonderful show and these two episodes don't disappoint. 10/10 Bethany Cox
