Pooh is my favorite Disney Character, and I just don’t know why. His ability to make every problem minuet to his lack of honey is one that makes me laugh every time.

The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh is a 1977 Disney cartoon which is composed of materials from three of Disney’s previously released animated features, and all are based upon the Winnie the Pooh books by A. A. Milne. The three animated features are Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree (1966), Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day(1968), and Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too (1974).

The Character Winnie the Pooh is a fictional anthropomorphic bear created by A. A. Milne. Milne named the bear after a teddy bear owned by his son, Christopher Robin Milne, whom you will come to know as the character Christopher Robin, who is Pooh’s best friend.

Milne also created characters from other Christopher's toys which were included in the story; notable though Owl and Gopher were added by Disney.

Winnie the Pooh (Christopher’s teddy bear) got his name from a Canadian black bear which Christopher often saw at the London Zoo the name of the bear was “Winnie”, and "Pooh", was a swan they had met while on holiday.

In the movie some additions were made, like Rabbit making Pooh part of his house décor was added by Disney himself, an idea he got while reading the book. The movie also features the classic songs by the Sherman Brothers, “Winnie the Pooh” and “The Wonderful Things About Tiggers”. 


This movie was the last movie that Walt Disney himself had personal involvement in. Although he was not involved in the movie shooting or production, he was part of the production of one of the shorts (Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree in 1966) and it was released during his lifetime and he was also involved in the production of Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day, which won the 1968 Academy Award for Animated Short Film, an award given to Walt Disney posthumously as he died two years before the film's release.

This 1977 classic is also rated has the same rated score in Rotten Tomatoes (the two have a 91% approval from critics, making it a most watch) as its 2011 predecessor titled Winnie The Pooh.

Many would have seen this classic, and I believe there is no reason not to, if you have not already. It is a DVD to own and keep.
