Product Description

Product Description

Complete with Academy Award winning animation and magical musical score, Disney's timeless tale has been beautifully restored to its original brilliance for your entire family's delight!

Disney's 1977 The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh may be the last word on (animated) Pooh because it so faithfully honors the first word on Pooh, penned in the 1920s by British storyteller A.A. Milne. Gently paced, subtly humorous, and blessedly understated, this adaptation reflects Walt Disney's original vision to develop the beloved British bear for a wider audience. The film is essentially a collection of the original Pooh shorts, "The Honey Tree," "The Blustery Day," and "Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too." These storybooks are presented in seamless "chapters," narrated by the timeless Sebastian Cabot. The familiar musical score and original voices of Sterling Holloway as Pooh, and Paul Winchell as Tigger, cap this enchanting keepsake. (Ages 2 and up). --Lynn Gibson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Yes, we all love Winnie the Pooh. However, the main reason I prefer "The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" over any of the other Disney movies featuring Pooh Bear is the way this movie is set up. It's a compilation of several of the classic Pooh short stories, instead of one long movie. I find my two-year old gets much more out of watching the individual 10 minute stories, as opposed to attempting to sit through a full-length, animated film.
Thus, keeping the little ones (ages 1-5) and their attention spans in mind, I highly recommend "The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" to be a must for any family video collection!

This is one of the Disney's materpieces. I'm in my 20's and I grew up with Winnie the pooh not only with the movie but with the tv series and the Book. It is hard to imagine a more delightful DVD introduction to A. A. Milne's cherished Winnie the Pooh books than this 1977 short stories, which gathered the Disney studio's original trio of animated featurettes: Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree (1966): Pooh of course goes out looking for hunny and gets into some trouble, the Oscar-winning Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day (1968): the hundred acre woods is flooded and piglet is in trouble, and Winnie the Pooh and Tigger, Too (1974):this is one of my favorite of the short stories where you meet tigger and you hear him sing his memorable song. Pooh was a pet project of Walt Disney, whose children loved the books about the "willy nilly silly old bear" and his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood. Faithful to the look and gentle spirit of the books, these mellow shorts do Milne proud. With the voices of Sterling Holloway as Pooh, Paul Winchell as Tigger, and John Fiedler as Piglet, the delightful characters come to life. The DVD edition includes a honey jar full of additional special features, including interactive sing-alongs and various activities. But the best part is how they restored the animation vivid and stunning as i would believe as when the movies first arrived in theathers. This movie is my family's favorite. At least once a month my nephew watches it and sings along and is enchanted by silly Pooh, little piglet, gloomy eeyore, rabbit and his gardening,know it all owl, kanga and little roo and bouncy tigger too. This is sure to be in your dvd collection already or soon, where you can be enchanted by one of disney's greatest materpieces about a boy named christopher robin and his nilly silly old bear pooh and his friends and a wonderful place called the hundred acre woods!

This is not, by far, the best of Disney. The three animated shorts that were originally stitched together to make "The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" date from the late 1960's to the early 1970's, not a vintage Disney era, and it shows. The animation, while miles above TV-quality fare, isn't particularly good compared to the earlier Disney classics, there are several rather careless holes in the dialogue and plot, and the whole storybook motif is overdone to the point that a rather important plot element (Tigger getting down from the tree) depends entirely upon the narrator. True purists are also appalled at the changes Disney wrought upon A.A. Milne and Ernest Shepard's original characters.
For my part, I think the Disney animators did as good a job here of maintaining the general atmosphere of the original Milne stories as was ever done--the modern efforts don't even come close, and actually reduce the Pooh characters to a status on a par with just about anything else. I also have a sentimental attachment to the original Disney shorts, since I basically grew up watching them occasionally on TV. These are gentle stories that will appeal to a wide range of ages, from extremely young (my daughter has been watching them since before she could speak) to late adolescence. The plot consists of a number of rather underwhelming and pointless events in the lives of a number of stuffed animals inhabiting the "Hundred Acre Wood," which is rather refreshing from Disney, actually: no pandering, no didacticism, just (as Homer Simpson might say) "a bunch of stuff that happens.

The best part of watching this film with my son was re-living my childhood memories of seeing this oh so long ago. There were many "Oh, yeah, I remember that!" moments. My son, on the other hand, just sat there absorbing the whole thing (he's only 3, but he can watch TV with the best of them).
The only thing I'd give thumbs-down to on this DVD is the film transfer quality. The film is rather old now, and the dyes and the paints they used back then are wearing unevenly. This gives a sort of mottled look to some of the larger patches of color, and makes me wonder why they didn't "digitally remaster" the print to get the highest clarity. Wouldn't have been that hard to do.
But the bonus material is exellent, and the film itself is the classic that I remember it to be.
Interesting fact: there were three different people who did the voice for Christopher Robin, but that's only because this version of the film is actually three short films put together with a special scene at the end with Christopher Robin saying good-bye to Pooh. It's all very well explained in the "making of" video included.
Great film, good DVD. Your kids will love it and so will you.
