Adorable, affectionate and hilarious
30 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. Both "What's the Score Pooh" and "Tigger's Houseguest" are excellent episodes, providing much affection and hilarity as well as an adorable innocence impossible to resist.

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.

"What's The Score Pooh?" is affectionate and amusing with a brilliant opening scene. Pooh is adorable, Tigger as always is a riot and while Eeyore is cynical and pessimistic you can't help loving him and feeling sorry for him. Loved it also that Gopher, a character either underused or omitted in later incarnations, has a fair bit to do throughout the show and he is fun with his goofy sayings and how he says them in this episode. Everything that is so good about the show is still there, and of the dialogue particularly great is "We must have a team meeting./But haven't we met each other already?/Oh my" most.

"Tigger's Houseguest" is both funny and adorable. Funny because Tigger is as zany as ever with his endearing way of saying certain words wrong such as ridiculous becoming "ridicurous" and the inevitable droll pieces of dialogue scattered throughout("I've heard of close friends, but this is too close"). Not to mention the gag when Tigger climbs through his window to try and open the door. And adorable simply because of lovable old Pooh, who really shines in this episode, such as his humming at the beginning, his words of wisdom which is obvious in a sense but you still love him anyway and a truly priceless facial expression towards the end. Like some episodes, namely "Find Her Keep Her" and "A Very, Very Large Animal", "Tigger's Houseguest" never fails to touch me on an emotional level, mainly because of the nostalgia Winnie the Pooh brings.

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, two excellent episodes that are adorable, affectionate, charming and hilarious. 10/10 Bethany Cox
