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 GibsonSee all Product Description

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!
5 stars ***** two thumbs way way way up!
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.Read more ›
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.
