Reviews and Comments

From Charlie Brown :

Not as good as Blustery Day, but thoroughly enjoyable none the less.

From Michelle I. :

Another 10/10 Pooh cartoon. These older ones are wonderful classics, just like the 'New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh' also are now. The best part of this is Rabbit attempting to make the Pooh bear stuck in his door a decent piece of furniture for his house, and the cry of "Pooh, you messed up my moose!" when Pooh's laugh causes the paintbrush to squiggle. Rabbit just can't look anywhere without seeing the back end of that bear! A fabulous cartoon.

From Baruch Weiss :

I do not own this cartoon separately, but rather own it on "The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" and I love all three features. They are so much better then the new pooh shows!

From Will :

I can't believe this film has gotten so few reviews on here! It is, in my opinion, one of the best things Disney ever did. Even though Winnie the Pooh has become as much of a corporate icon as he is now, this short retains the energy and the fun that a screen character can only have in their very first films. I've had this on tape since 1989 (when I was not even two years old), and, after many years without viewings, rediscovered it recently. It only reinforced an opinion I'd had for some years that causes other adults to tell me "Well, DUH!"- Disney's films were made for adults. Period. The first forty or fifty years' worth especially. However, unlike other films made for adults, they are still accessible to children, and thus they gain the label of "family films". Which is really unfair because it does little more than turn adults without children away from them, denying them such a marvelous experience (unless, of course, they are like me and watch them even if they don't have children because they grew up on them).

But anyway, back to this film-it's wonderful! My favorite line is when Pooh's balloon that he clings to deflates in mid-air and, after a pause, says one of the funniest things I've ever heard in a movie:

"I think I shall come down."

Well, it loses something when you try and describe it. But take my word for it, you'll like this film if you like classic Disney, and even if you don't, you probably will. Try it, even if you've never seen it and even if you don't have kids!

From Bryan Hensley :

Alongside Mickey Mouse, Winnie the Pooh is one of my favorite Disney stars. This is the featurette that started it all for Pooh and his gang! (Even though Piglet and Tigger didn't make their debuts until 1968.) When Pooh overeats honey, he overeats! So much in fact, he blocked Rabbit's front door! Christopher Robin started out with an American accent in the original version of this short, but in the movie version, he was speaking with a British accent! Both this featurette and Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too have never been released separately on DVD! The other 2 featurettes have been shown separate on DVD before. The same guy who provided the voice of Archimedes from The Sword In The Stone was also Rabbit's voice! Same thing with Sterling Holloway between certain narrated Disney shorts and Winnie the Pooh. One of Disney's "story guys", Ralph Wright, was the original voice of Eeyore, all the way to 1983 for Winnie the Pooh and A Day For Eeyore! In the latest Pooh movie "Tigger and Pooh and A Musical Too", Tigger mentioned he missed Gopher. The beaver from Lady and The Tramp was an inspiration for what Gopher turned out being, and eventually Beaver for My Friends Tigger and Pooh. Who knows what became of Gopher? Anyway, this short was the start of the Pooh legacy for Disney and all over the world, right to this day! I hope anyone, young and old, enjoys this featurette as well as the other three! By the way, all 4 featurettes are together on The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh VHS from 2002 and 2 separate DVD versions!

From Mike :

I do like this short. One of its funniest scenes is when Gopher keeps falling down his own hole. I think Gopher is an underused Winnie the Pooh character he's just funny all around.
