    I've known this for a while. I knew the episode "A Bird In The Hand" was coming, but they replaced it with "The Buzz on Maggie". I hate it now because of that now! I've been waiting for it for weeks, and in the end, Buzz on Maggie is replaced! dang! Bummer!

    Wow, I can't believe it was replaced with a show like "Buzz On Maggie". Disney has lost its mind.

    Alas, this is probably due to the big lawsuit over the Pooh franchise, right now.

    Indeed. And that is where the REAL Pooh will remain, as "Playhouse: The Show" in the parks will introduce us to that ruining of Mickey and Pooh via park versions of "Clubhouse" and "My Friends T&P" respectively.

    Tigger & Pooh is a good show, as for New Adventures, a number of episodes of it are available under the oddly-packaged "Growing Up with Winnie the Pooh" releases.

    Tigger and Pooh as detectives, Tigger doing Pooh's "think think think" trademark, and newcomer Darby essentially replacing Christopher Robin (for whom the stories were made) makes for a good show?

    Tigger & Pooh make excellent detectives, all of them do "think, think, think," and I'm so tired of this junk about Darby "replacing" Christopher Robin (and yes, I know you said "essentially"). First of all, Christopher Robin isn't gone and does still appear on the show sometimes, secondly, Christopher Robin is in school now, and I read that Robin never liked appearing in his father's stories anyway. Have you even watched "Tigger & Pooh?" Because if you did, you'd know it's filled with lively animation, Pooh-styled good humor, fun storylines, and enjoyable music.

    Look, I'm not going to try and argue down anyone who knocks the quality of Tigger & Pooh anymore. I already have a fleet of fans over at the guide for the show here (which I edit) who are willing to do that. I also have the support of 12/14 Amazon.com voters who voted "helpful" for my five-star review of My Friends Tigger & Pooh: Super Sleuth Christmas Movie, as well as it's overall 4 1/2 star rating from all who wrote reviews for it on the site. (And the one person who decided to give it a one-star was rewarded appropriately with only 3/13 "helpful" votes.)

    For that matter, I've given up trying to debate with those who dislike The Book of Pooh, although I can't seem to find nearly as much support for that one.

    I think this tidbit from Amazon hits the mark reasonably well, too:

    "If it was up to me this movie would get 1 star but it's my 3 year old son's opinion of the movie that matters and he loved it."

    Exactly. Even if for some reason you can't get behind the show, there's no arguing that there's something about it that's appealing to those that they've created it for. Could it beeeeeeee... quality?

    That's NOT the point. The point is that that's NOT the purpose the characters were created for.
    :
    , all of them do "think, think, think,"
    Not really. In the orginal 1977 shorts and even in New Adventures, Pooh did most of the think work.
    :
    and I'm so tired of this junk about Darby "replacing" Christopher Robin (and yes, I know you said "essentially").
    Then ignore it, simple as that.
    :
    First of all, Christopher Robin isn't gone and does still appear on the show sometimes,
    BS. That's probably a statement by Disney placed out there to make sure hardcore Poohists aren't pissed off, because--as of yet--I've yet to see/hear the series mentioned CR at all.
    :
    secondly, Christopher Robin is in school now, and I read that Robin never liked appearing in his father's stories anyway.
    Whilst the latter is true, even he way back when ought to have considered that no matter how hard he tried, this was a legacy he couldn't ever escape, because it was a part of him. Plus, it matters not that CR is in school, because he was in school in Grand Adventure and still had time to make appearances with his friends.
    :
    Have you even watched "Tigger & Pooh?" Because if you did, you'd know it's filled with lively animation, Pooh-styled good humor, fun storylines, and enjoyable music.
    I watched it, but as a hardcore Poohist, I prefer the originals over the CGI and puppet versions anyday, because the cartoon versions are the ones that were only meant to be made, but Disney basically ran with the franchise, even though they weren't really supposed to.
    :
    I also have the support of 12/14 Amazon.com voters who voted "helpful" for my five-star review of My Friends Tigger & Pooh: Super Sleuth Christmas Movie, as well as it's overall 4 1/2 star rating from all who wrote reviews for it on the site.

    That doesn't mean jack squat, for hell, Amazon could very well have the same amount of people who say that Sesame Street foregoing its inner city nature to become more PC and uber-happy is a good idea, even though such a perfect world as posed by the "new" Elmo-saturated versions of the show doesn't exist and never will exist, because humans--as a species--are imperfect and will remain so!
    :
    Exactly. Even if for some reason you can't get behind the show, there's no arguing that there's something about it that's appealing to those that they've created it for.
    So? If the parents themselves can't enjoy the show too, then it's not worth it, IMO, because TV is supposed to be enjoyed by all members of the family and isn't supposed to act as a babysitter. The parents STILL should do their damn job as caregivers and teachers to their children, despite how busy living life has currently become, because if parents fail at their job, then the children most likely would become failures, due to having a poor upbringing.

    No, because the show is being overblown with CGI, something that's starting to piss older generations off, and because the treated-as-a-babysitter show is just made to make money--as most shows are--but unlike the shows of old, it's only made for that purpose only, because whilst Walt, Jim, and all these other influential creators brought all these loveable characters--and not just the Pooh ones--to life, giving them hearts and souls that are relatable to the audiences, the corporate side of the respective companies just takes those characters, using them for monetary gain and other selfish reasons.

    That's NOT the point. The point is that that's NOT the purpose the characters were created for.

    Who cares what they were created for? The rights for them were sold to Disney, which means that Disney can do what they want with them.

    :
    First of all, Christopher Robin isn't gone and does still appear on the show sometimes,
    BS. That's probably a statement by Disney placed out there to make sure hardcore Poohists aren't pissed off, because--as of yet--I've yet to see/hear the series mentioned CR at all.

    It's not, Christopher's already been seen in one episode in the United States and another that's only aired in the U.K.

    Christopher Robin, you are the one / Christopher Robin, we'll have so much fun / Christopher, please marry meeeee!

    Seriously, let me know when you two make the engagement announcement so I can send my best wishes!

    That doesn't mean jack squat, for hell, Amazon could very well have the same amount of people who say that Sesame Street foregoing its inner city nature to become more PC and uber-happy is a good idea, even though such a perfect world as posed by the "new" Elmo-saturated versions of the show doesn't exist and never will exist, because humans--as a species--are imperfect and will remain so!

    I don't know about those particular Amazon reviewers, and I have seen some criticism of what you describe.

    There's good CGI and there's bad CGI. I know bad CGI when I see it. Arthur's Missing Pal is an example of bad CGI. Or are you one of those who simply doesn't like CGI period, and feels that only hand-drawn animation is quality?

    Oh no, they're a business, they're not allowed to make any money! How terrible! Never mind that much of the stuff actually is quality. Lumpy is charming, Roo remains as cute as ever, and Pooh and Tigger are both still enjoyable and fun to watch. And Darby isn't awful either. And, of course, there's the merchandise. And, believe me, I know not all of it is good. I can't stand the character model they're using for some of the Darby merchandise. But a lot of the other stuff is good.

    I don't mind CGI in small doses, but when a lot of entertainment now pretty much runs on it, it does get boring, taxing, and tiresome, especially when animation--if done by a caring hand--could produce some of the greatest quality works known to humankind.

    Lumpy is charming,
    Even though Heffalumps, Woozles, Jagulars, and the like were all meant to be fictional in the world of Pooh.

    She was just added--IMO--to get more girls to buy Pooh merchandise.

    I think you're forgetting that even though many of today's shows use CGI, they still rely to a great degree on fantastic hand-drawn background artwork as well. Examples -- Miss Spider's Sunny Patch Friends and Tigger & Pooh as well. And all of them are generally still storyboarded using traditional techniques.

    Re even though -- yes, even though. Heffalumps, woozles and jagulars were only scared because they were undefined. That was the point of the Heffalump movie. And woozles and jagulars still are.

    Well, if that's the case, then fail, because the character design they're using for her on the merchandise, particularly the plush toys, is terrible.

    Darby is smart, spunky, well-defined and cute. On the other hand, what do we really know about Christopher Robin, other than that he was a somewhat quiet boy who sometimes liked to have adventures with his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood? Sorry, I shouldn't say "sometimes liked to," because he still does.

    If he still did, then CR would appear more often. Face it, Pooh has become pretty much a medium marketed to girls.

    The distribution rights were given to Disney & the rights to make the first films--i.e. the 70's shorts--were given to Disney. Disney just misinterpreted those rights to mean that they get control over all of Milne's work and the characters therein, which is NOT true, because--by all rights--they belong to Milne's living relatives and his estate.

    I definatly think this show should still air on TV. The direction that Disney has took is f*cking disgraceful with their Playhouse Disney and their Disney XD crap. Bring back the old Disney cartoons. Kids of today do not know what they're missing.
