The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh is the 1977 animated movie based on the books by A.A. Milne. It is a collection of stories about Pooh and his friends. The first deals with Pooh’s attempts to find honey. Even going so far as to look in a bee hive. The second story is about Pooh getting stuck in Rabbit’s house, and having to wait until he’s thin enough to get out. The third story is about the gang surviving a rain storm. The final two stories deal with Tigger. The first is Rabbit trying to lose Tigger in the woods and failing. The final story is about an obstacle that scares even Tigger.
While it gets a little syrupy at times, it’s still a pretty good Anthology. It’s also pretty creative in its animation, as the director uses a book as a framing device. The tone is gentle and low-key. The characters never get into any real danger, despite the fact they deal with such events as storms and bees. Disney fans will still get a real kick out of the Heffalumps and Woozles song, as it shows the wacky animation Disney is known for. Rabbit does act pretty mean towards Tigger near the end though. Honolulu Disney fans should buy this movie.
