The Book of Pooh

Show Summary

A new Disney version of the classic childrens' stories about Winnie the Pooh and his friends. Rather than the animated versions of the past, this series is done entirely in a puppet format. In it, Tigger bounces, Piglet worries, Eeyore is gloomy, and Pooh just tries to get a tummy full of honey. Review panelists said, "State of the art fusion of modernized Bunraku/tabletop-style performing with 3-D interactive computer graphic sets, fed live to puppeteers as they work. All this technology aimed to wards realizing sweet, traditional characters in a setting rife with references to the literature. Traditional Winnie the Pooh and friends confront their daily challenges in the Hundred Acre Wood, which is actually a pop-up book." How Pooh Got His Start: The Featurette, "When Pooh Was Very Young," shares rare photographs, home movies, and audio clips of the real Christopher Robbin and the real Winnie the Pooh. It explains how a little boy playing with his toys inspired the books and why Walt Disney decided to make the first animated movie in the series, Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day. Fun Fact: Christopher Robbin Milne first called his favorite toy bear, "Edward." It was renamed Winnie the Pooh, after a visit to the London Zoo to see the popular American Black Bear, "Winnie."

Characters Pooh: Winnie the Pooh is the friendly bear. He is always helping others, no matter what the situation. The one thing, that Pooh loves the most is honey (his spelling: hunny). That is the one item, that is hard for him to live without. When, he runs out of it, he seeks for some more, or asks someone in the Hundred Acre Woods. (Catchphrase: "Rumbly in my tumbly") Piglet: Piglet may not be as big as his friends, but his dreams are great in size. He may become worried when something odd happens in the Hundred Acre Woods, but he is always willing to take the chance, and see what could be wrong. Piglet will never let you down because he is a great friend to everyone he meets. (Catchphrase: "Ohhh...d-d-dear.") Tigger: Tigger is the bouncy tiger. He is always jumping up and down because that is what Tiggers do best. Tigger never really knew his family, but in Roo's eyes, they Hundred Acre Woods' friends were his family. He (Catchphrase: "The wonderful thing about Tiggers, is that I'm the only one - T-I Double - That's what Tiggers do best!") Rabbit: Rabbit is very wise. He thinks about stuff, before he actually does, to keep out of danger. This usually helps Pooh, Piglet, and Tigger. One of Rabbit's favorite hobbies is gardening, something that he is good at, but is always ruined by someone or something. He took care of a young bird, Kessie, when she needed it and they became very good friends. Eeyore: Eeyore is the donkey, with a dull voice. He doesn't move as fast as everyone else, and his houses of twigs, never stay up. Eeyore's tail is always getting lost because it is pinned on. (Catchphrase: "Not that I expected ya' to notice me anyway.") Kessie: Kessie is the blue bird. She is sort of new to the Hundred Acre Woods. Rabbit found her, and took care of her. She made friends with everyone in the Hundred Acre Woods, and one of her good friends is Rabbit. Kanga: Kanga is the motherly kangaroo to Roo, and the rest of the Hundred Acre Woods' pals. She is always helpful to others. Kanga, comforts everyone & helps them when they are feeling weakened. Owl: Owl is the wise owl, who gives useful advice & suggestions. He likes to read books, and he can strike up a conversation. When he does begin talking, Pooh and friends need to sneak away, or they would be there for the whole day. Owl gives good directions, when a friend of his, is looking for someone. (Catchphrase: "As my Great Uncle always used to say...")
