Today, it is still likeable. The Story Behind the Masterpiece 25:05 - This is a wonderful and thorough 2001 documentary about how Winnie The Pooh first came to life in animation form in 1966. It's all so adorable--it's about as cute as you can get without inducing nausea! The music score is truly one of the greatest musical scores ever. These stories are genuinely wholesome without being sticky. This segment was about Christopher Robin having to leave the Hundred Acre Wood to start school.
I hope you'll consider my full analysis and then take to the forum to discuss the presentation further. This movie made me remembered the time I read the books this and other film adaptations were based on by A. Despite the mild whitening effect I described earlier, Christopher Robin yellows and blues, Pooh Bear reds and honey-golds, Tigger oranges, Piglet pinks and other foreground colors have been granted new life. Share all the fun and whimsy of The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh in this resplendent Special Edition of the original Walt Disney animated classic -- now digitally restored and remastered in high definition to thrill a whole new generation! The animation is beautiful, especially in Blustery Day, one of the three vignettes that make up the film. Grain has been completely and thoroughly eradicated, and along with it some minute many will argue negligible details, but none of it amounts to anything I'd consider a serious loss. A truly excellent, classic movie. I actually just put it on for my 3 year old tonight and he's been engrossed in it since -- even laughing aloud at Pooh's antics.
Kanga is nice and her son Roo is cool, innocent and enthusiastic. Pooh is my favorite Disney Character and I just don't know why. They teach us important life lessons, play into our imaginations, and will always make the old feel young again. They all have different personalities, but they're all cool. As the live-action opening shifts into the animated pages of the storybook, another troubling issue presents itself: the art is hindered by slightly aggressive brightness and contrast tweaking.
I had looked everywhere and couldn't find it, but I didn't realize that it was because I was looking for a television series when it is actually presented as more of a movie. I won't scold those who come to The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and walk away completely satisfied. This is easily one of Disney's best animated movies. Could you find a nicer, more innocent film than this one? This is refreshing in that there is very, very little violence and no evil characters, no bad guys, both of which are unusual in animated films. Don't worry, I'm getting to those in a moment.
A fifth shorter featurette is added to bring the film to a close. And then the whole tree house falls over, demolishing his house on the ground; Pooh wields a pop gun with a cork in it--and points it at his own reflection in a mirror; In a dream, Pooh is stuck in an elephant's trunk like a cannon that explodes; A flood consumes Piglet's house and Pooh's too; We see Piglet stranded on a floating chair while Pooh floats upside down with a jar on his head. I've been bouncing back and forth between a 3 and a 4 for the better part of the day. John Fiedler is wonderful as Piglet's voice. Without any macroblocking, banding, aliasing or noise to point to, the end result is as pristine and technically proficient as anyone could hope for. I remember watching these cartoons as a child myself either in this film or separately , and they still hold up really well today. They are perfect and touching.
Milne also created characters from other Christopher's toys which were included in the story; notable though Owl and Gopher were added by Disney. Gopher is hilarious - «he's not in the book» and it's simply awesome whenever he falls into his hole. For adults, it's a whimsical, beautiful, smart and hilarious confection. It's sentimental for sure, but a wonderful way to say goodbye. People of all ages can sit and watch this film together and not get bored as everyone can enjoy it and it gives adults the perfect excuse to switch off for a while and remember a time when things were easier.
Everything in this is just remarkably touching and just very pleasing. He looks more like a doll. He winds up getting himself stuck there with no hope. Rather than telling a new story or spinning a fresh tale, Wolfgang Reitherman's The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh gathered three previously released theatrical featurettes together under one roof: Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too 1974 , Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day 1968 and, yes, Disney's own Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree 1966. God bless Disney for bringing them to life for us I'm not even religious! Note the grain, the uptick in fine detail, the more natural film-like appearance. But none of it proves problematic and nothing struck me as out of sorts. The problems are few, if any, and only trace back to The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh being a compilation film.
It's a reminder to us adults how our youth and age of innocence doesn't last forever, while simultaneously encouraging young ones to cherish each moment. If it brings back good memories to you, you'll love this movie. This is as sweet-natured a film as you could ever find. Were this a live-action film, the noise reduction would be disastrous. His greatest contribution to film, in fact, was his ability to pick himself up and push on; to find another story to tell whenever a passion project didn't come together; or to keep Walt Disney Productions and its famed animation studio afloat when financial ruin was a hair's breadth away.
In moving from featurette to featurette, the animation takes time to come into its own, the character designs change over the years, Tigger is absent from the Honey Tree sequences, and the parade of distinctly different Christopher Robin voice actors can be quite jarring. Whether we're young or forever young at heart, the Hundred Acre Wood calls to that place in each of us that still believes in magic. The episodes with the Honey Tree, the Blustery Day, and De-Bouncing Tigger are included in the digital version. Rabbit is authoritarian, tense and sometimes unfair, but cool. Also even the youngest children can sit through this and not wonder is it nearly finished? Whether we're young or forever young at heart, the Hundred Acre Wood calls to that place in each of us that still believes in wonder. The score is calming, enjoyable, and just pleasant. Growing up I was unaware of the previous shorts or even the books really.
This continued right up until high school. The film received positive reviews while its short length was criticized. In the movie some additions were made, like Rabbit making Pooh part of his house décor was added by Disney himself and idea he got while reading the book. He bounces on Pooh, Piglet and Rabbit, but never on Cristopher Robin, Kanga, Roo, Eeyore, Gopher and Owl. This film is a compilation of different adventures that a stuffed bear and all his animal friends have gone on.
