The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

This is a classic.  I was a huge Winnie-the-Pooh lover as a kid, so this really brings back the memories.  I remember absolutely adoring this movie and all of the other movies, games, and whatever else existed in the franchise.  The first video game I ever remember playing was a Winnie-the-Pooh game on our Macintosh computer.

While in some ways I do think that Winnie-the-Pooh is timeless and something that can be loved by everyone, I think it definitely has more of an appeal for kids.  Unlike some of the other animated Disney movies, which might deal with serious topics and hardships, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh is just a rather go-lucky series of stories that has very little real strife.

My favorite out of these mini stories is the one where Pooh eats too much honey and gets stuck in the door of Rabbit's house.  I remember loving the part where Rabbit decides to make Pooh's butt part of the decor and starts painting it.  When I was younger my favorite characters were Pooh and Piglet, but now that I'm older I can kind of sympathize with Rabbit somewhat.  Of course, they're all great characters - Tigger, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, and Owl.  Owl was much funnier now than when I watched him as a kid, because there were a lot of things I didn't get then.

There are many more Pooh stories than the ones contained here, and some of them have been made into shorts and other movies by Disney.  In addition, there is a new Pooh movie coming out this summer.

Jason's thoughts:  "It was good, but it's more for kids."

The Music
Lots of songs in this one, and they fit the style of the movie well.  They aren't show stopping numbers, but fun songs that really appeal to kids, such as "The Wonderful Thing about Tiggers," "Winnie the Pooh" and "Heffalumps and Woozles."

The Villain
The characters are all so sweet and lovable in this one that there really isn't a villain.  Sometimes they get on each others' nerves, but in the end they are all just friends.  If anything the unknown Heffalumps and Woozles are the villains, but we don't really see them in this film other than a dream.

The WDW Connection
Pooh and his friends are quite popular in Disney World.  There is a ride in the Magic Kingdom named after this movie, called The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.  There is also a restaurant there called the Crystal Palace, which is a character meal.  When you eat there you can meet Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, and Tigger.  The characters can also be found many places throughout the parks - I've run into Pooh in the UK pavilion in Epcot a few times.
