The story begins with an opening segment in which Pooh Bear hides a present he has for Piglet. Then our friends gather together and tell little Roo about a past Christmas. This segment comes from the special "Winnie the Pooh and Christmas Too," featuring the characters from "The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh." Pooh and his friends are getting ready for Christmas. They decide to make a Christmas list and come up with all sorts of gifts that they want to give each other. But when the list is lost to the wind, Pooh and Piglet decide to dress up as Santa and a reindeer and make gifts.
Later, they recall a New Year's in which Rabbit wanted to move away because he was irritated Pooh's eating honey, Tigger's bouncing, Piglet's being afraid and Eeyore's gloominess. So they all made resolutions to change and swapped personalities.
One reason this production is neat is that it has Gopher in it --- he really isn't seen too much lately.
This movie features songs by Carly Simon (who also did the songs for the more recent "Piglet's Big Movie" and "Heffalump Movie") as well as by the characters. She does a great job, as always. The best is "Auld Lang Syne" (with Pooh-specific lyrics mixed in.) This is great, because you don't usually get to hear lyrics for this song these days, only the tune.
DVD special features include a "Covered in Snow" game, a "New Year's Eve" countdown and song selection with on-screen lyrics. These features aren't anything overly exciting, but they are fairly nice. The "Covered in Snow" game is a bit flawed in that you're supposed to choose objects, but it lets you choose the same ones over and over and doesn't progress the game any. Otherwise, good game. You can also put the DVD in your DVD-ROM drive (if you have one) to register it.
The second half of this DVD is incredibly disturbing for different reasons. Pooh, Tigger, Piglet and Eeyore make resolutions to change their behavior because Rabbit doesn't like the way they are and threatens to move from the hundred-acre wood. So Tigger and Piglet switch behaviors, and Pooh and Eeyore switch behaviors. Pooh becomes a depressed mess and Eeyore becomes a smiling, red shirt-wearing weirdo. It's honestly just disturbing and really creepy. And the moral is just ridiculous. The animation is sub-par as well as the story. I wish someone had given me these details before I paid money for this movie.
I hope that this will become a holiday tradition.
