The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (1977)


“The only reason for being a bee is to make honey. And the only reason for making honey is so I can eat it. ” – Winnie the Pooh

Number of Times Seen – at least twice (Cable in the 80’s and 13 Jun 2021)

Brief Synopsis – Anthology of stories based on the various adventures of Winnie the Pooh and his friends.

My Take on it – Fun idea to mix together numerous short stories about Winnie the Pooh and putting them together.

Most Disney films have a dual layer to them so that both adults and kids can garner much knowledge from the way that these stories are told.

Unfortunately this film doesn’t have that effect.

The characters and their stories feel as if they are solely geared towards kids and that is somewhat of a disappointment since this was the brainchild of Walt Disney himself who secured the rights to the characters in order to make movies about them.

The fact that this is an anthology of stories of Winnie the Pooh also says so much about the way that the film was promoted.

Stories promoted with a sole focus on kids are usually shorter as with adults that isn’t needed.

In general animated films are less than 90 minutes to keep up with the attention span of kids.

Since each of the stores in this anthology average about 20 minutes each it is clear that this was made solely for kids which is a disappointing message from a Disney movie even during the 1970’s.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – This was the last film to have any personal involvement from Walt Disney. (From IMDB)

Rating – BAFTA Worthy (6/10)
