The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
on 5 April 2015
The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh is really 3 stories in one, which is really nice. Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree (1966), Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day (1968), and Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too (1974).
Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree (1966) is about Pooh running out of honey & first trying to disguise himself as a little black raincloud to steal some honey from the bees. When that doesn't work he ends up at Rabbit's place & ends up eating too much & gets stuck in the door with some very funny consequences.
Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day (1968), it's a very windy day & Pooh who misunderstands Gopher's warning goes across the Hundred Acre Wood to wish everyone a happy Winds-day. While a lot more happens in this story wishing someone a happy Winds-day is just so amusing I don't feel the need to explain this story anymore haha.
Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too (1974) – Rabbit, Pooh and Piglet formulates a plan to abandon Tigger in the woods, and find him the next day so hopefully Tigger will stop bouncing on his friends unexpectedly. Later on in the story Tigger gets stuck up a tree & promises never to bounce again if he can get down. At that moment, the narrator chimes in for help. Tigger begs him to "narrate" him down from the tree, and he tilts the book sideways, allowing Tigger to step onto the text of the page.
Happy, Tigger attempts to bounce but Rabbit stops him reminding Tigger of the promise he made. Devastated, Tigger realizes he cannot bounce anymore and slowly walks away and Rabbit feels better that there will be peace, but everyone else does not and felt sad to see Tigger depressed and remind Rabbit of the joy Tigger brought when he was bouncing. Then Rabbit shows sympathy for Tigger and takes back the promise they had agreed on; he is then given a friendly tackle by an overly-excited Tigger. Tigger invites everyone to bounce with him and even teaches Rabbit how to do it. For the first time, Rabbit is happy to be bouncing, as is everyone else as Tigger sings his signature song.
