Editorial Reviews

Pooh Bear and his pals in the Hundred Acre Wood celebrate Christmas and New Year's Eve in a pair of adventures folded into this 65-minute made-for-video feature. In the first, the silly old bear plays Saint Nick to his buddies ("I always thought he'd be taller") after failing to get an errant wish list off to Santa, while identity crisis strikes the gang in the second half. Piglet inherits Tigger's hop and jumps like a pogo stick, and Eeyore (dressed in Pooh's shirt) becomes a happy-go-lucky honey lover. Welcome to The Twilight Zone according to Winnie the Pooh. There's not much A.A. Milne in this TV-style holiday special, but it's a bouncy little production that should entertain the wee ones with its warm fuzzies, good company, slapstick energy, and life lessons. --Sean Axmaker

Product Description

Ring in the season with Winnie The Pooh in a brand-new, full-length adventure. Share the joy and magic of the holidays as Pooh and his lovable friends celebrate Christmas and the New Year in a delightful tale about spending special moments with those you care about most. After fond recollections of a Christmas past ... the countdown to New Year's begins! Rabbit plans a party, but when Pooh and friends bother him, he starts to sulk -- threatening to move away. To appease Rabbit, everyone makes a New Year's resolution to change. But see what happens to the Hundred Acre Wood when Piglet starts bouncing to conquer his fear, Pooh becomes gloomy from not eating any honey, and Tigger ... unbounce-able! Stuffed with holiday spirit and four new holiday songs, A VERY MERRY POOH YEAR is an animated treasure that is sure to become a family classic for years to come!

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy New Year, Pooh and Friends! January 2, 2006
Actually, more like New Year's and Christmas, as that's what this DVD features.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very merry pooh year all year round. December 9, 2003
This is an excellent christmas time story for all lovers of winnie pooh and friends, young and old alike! Its a story that can, and probably will be, watched again and again. There are two interactive games for younger children which should keep them occupied for an hour or two. My children aren't "fans" of winne pooh but have watched this over and over. good value for money!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Stop Changing My Childhood December 9, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I remember watching this every year as a child when it came on ABC around Christmas. Maybe the older and younger generations won't remember, but any kid who grew up on The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh will know that they re-dubbed Christopher Robin's voice so he would sound like a British child and changed aspects of the movie so that it is unrecognizable to me. There are scenes added that were never in the original, such as the opening sequence, with obviously different voice actors and animation. I compared the original (found on youtube) to this version of the movie and they have cut many moments in the original to make room for the new, unnecessary scenes. They also cut much of the original music and replaced it with a non-emotional score. For me this is a HUGE part of what makes this a nostalgic movie. Don't waste your money on this sad cut and paste movie. I recommend watching the full ORIGINAL version on youtube titled "Winnie the Pooh and Christmas Too".

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Holiday movie November 29, 2004
A good Holiday movie with all the usual cast. I watched this movie this morning with my nephew to introduce him to the Holiday *this is his first* and I enjoyed it as much as he seemed to! My only small complaint is that when they go into different part's of the story (ie the new year celebration) it seemed a little arkward. Other then that, two thumbs up.

I hope that this will become a holiday tradition.

5.0 out of 5 stars My 18 month old cannot get enough of this movie! October 30, 2003
By heather
I brought this movie out for this christmas since my daughtor this year is 18 months I knew she would like this movie. I love christmas so every October call me crazy but I bring out the christmas dvd's and music. I figure heck I start my christmas shopping in august gives me the spirit with out all that last minute stress. So I put this on for my 18 month old and immediately it became her favorite movie she makes us play it over and over again sometimes even when she wakes up in middle of the night she just wants us to play it cause we have a dvd in the bedroom on laptop that has happened twice. Her daddy though is quit sick of this movie now and it is not christmas he says it goes away the day after christmas. The two of us can recite the whole story now lol! It is a must have though for your little ones and you will enjoy it to the first few times once a year lol..She loves to dance to the cute songs they sing. Put ti this way I have never been a pooh fan ever and even told my mom that my kids will never have any winnie the pooh things. Cause all my friends kids had everything pooh bear it made me sick and I was the last to have my daughtor and all her stuff was preciose moments.This movie made even me a fan of the pooh clan. Buy this dvd you will not regret it is a wonderful holiday movie to enjoy with your kids!
