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.

As for the extras, you do get a good few on this DVD including:

A Day For Eeyore
The Winnie the Pooh Art Gallery
The Story Behind The Masterpiece
The Winnie the Pooh Theme Song
Pooh's Shadow
The 100 Acre Wood Challenge
Pooh's Pop-up Fun Facts
Heffalumps and Woozles

In short: The movie is great but you'd be better of buying the DVD version for this release has it's picture cut off and features no extra featues.

The Many Adventues of Winnie The Pooh is an excellent movie, or actually, 3 short movies that add up to the length of a feature movie. The stories are well adapted from the original A.A. Milne stories and brought to life with great animation and amazing voice acting. The soundtrack is provided by the legendary Sherman Brothers, who wrote the music for some of Disney's best features like Mary Poppins, Jungle Book and of course the Winnie The Pooh short's you'll find on this release.

So why the low rating then?
Well, while the movie is great, this Blu Ray release is an utter disappointment.

For starters, the video looks sharp and nice but for some reason Disney decided to make this a widescreen release. What this means is that they cut off the sides of the picture in order for it to completely fill the TV screen without having black borders on top or bottom. This may sound good but once you realize that you're missing out on about 20% of the frame it doesn't sound good at all. This movie was made with the intention of seeing the complete picture on every frame. Movements, backgrounds, were all created in order to accommodate this aspect ratio. Cutting it off just for the sake of the black borders is not only silly but an insult to the people who worked on this movie.
Furthermore, Disney had creative solutions for earlier movies, with movies like Pinocchio having custom, borders that blended in with the movie so this just seems like a dumb and cheap solution.

Besides this debacle, it's also missing a LOT of extra features. Features that WERE present on the DVD release. The most important being probably the 80's made 4th Pooh Short, A Day for Eeyore. This short, lasting 20 minutes is a great addition to the previous shorts and made the DVD a complete collection of these Pooh shorts..This should not have been omitted since Disney obviously has and owns the footage.
Other missing features are a 30-minute making of, a nice musical performance by Kenny Loggins of the famous Pooh Theme song, a story book for the little viewers and a DVD-game (remember those?). All in all, the DVD is a complete package. This one is bare bones and cut.

TOP 500 REVIEWERon 11 September 2013
My son is a big Winnie the Pooh film, we had seen this on tv and he enjoyed it, so I got it on DVD. I love this Winnie the Pooh film - I watched it myself as a child and was surprised when I knew the lyrics to the Heffalumps & Woozles, little black rain cloud, etc songs. Classic Winnie the Pooh. Gopher makes an appearance when pooh gets stuck in rabbits front door. Also tales of the little black rain cloud, trying to loose tigger, tigger jumping too high, the flood and Christopher Robin going to school (amongst other little tales). It is done with a narrow toe and interaction with him. If you love Winnie the Pooh - go back to the classics - they're such sweet little stories!

I have always been a fan of Pooh and friends, both on film and in print, and was very much looking forward to sharing the stories with my children. They are aged 18 months and 2 and a half years and have been absolutely captivated by this DVD. All the familiar faces are there and the stories are gently told, not too frantic like some more modern cartoons. The stories follow closely those of the books and the songs are simple and catchy.

I can't recommend this highly enough!

For me, Winnie the Pooh is the very essence of my childhood. This film is the best of all the Disney films featuring A A Milne's characters; the script and drawings are so close to the originals that it is like walking into one of the books. The voices are all perfect, and even today (at age 50) the ending still brings tears to my eyes.

Innocent fun which the little ones enjoyed. Always good to introduce a new generation to A.A. Milne.Recommended.
