We loved the recent whinnie the pooh movie that was based on the original story though.

I had to preorder this with the DVD separate because it is not a Blu-ray combo pack like the other disney blu-rays but came with a Digital HD code and that's an up.

Rabbit has never been drawn so mean faced and so mean spirited talking as at the end of this movie (before he does an about face).

Sometimes a narrator's got to do what a narrator's got to do-and in this happity-hoppity new Pooh cartoon, that means messing with Rabbit's tidy, organized mind. In homage to Charles Dicken's A Christmas Carol, the narrator shows Rabbit what the future will be like for him if he continues to deny little Roo and the other critters of the Hundred Acre Wood their Easter fun.
On Roo's second Easter, the whole gang is expecting an enjoyable, egg-hunting bash like they had last year, with Rabbit serving as their Easter Bunny host. What they don't remember from last year is how disappointed and frazzled Old Long Ears got when the gang wouldn't follow his Easter instructions with precision. The gang ended up having a grand time, but Rabbit secretly swore that he'd never play Easter Bunny again. And he meant it-until he ruins this year's Easter celebration AND the narrator convinces him that his friends will become so distraught over his denial of Easter that they all move away, leaving Rabbit bereft, draped in cobwebs and alone in the Hundred Acre Wood.
Sinister narrators aside, it's a wonderful lesson for children on how friendship has to be a two-way street, and how laughter can trump tidiness on any given day, especially holidays!
For those of you parents who have been swindled by Pooh movies in the past, rest assured, this one is actually a new feature, not a clumsy cut-and-paste job of old television cartoons. Not only that, the songs are the hummy, lively tunes we expect and crave from a Pooh cartoon, not the overprocessed glock that some recent Disney straight-to-video productions are trying to pass off as "musical classics."
The final word from a Pooh Purist: This disk is worth it!

Whoever was in charge of this production should be ashamed of themselves. My 2-year old daughter adores the Winnie the Pooh series. One of the reasons I let her watch it so much was the lack of violence, the nice way the characters treat each other, etc. In the first few minutes, this one has rabbit throwing - physically throwing - the characters out of his house, and has him slapping Tigger. I know Tigger's character has always bounced on the others, but there was a very different tone to it. Plus, the animation is flat, the new voices for Kanga and Roo are not as good as in the Piglet and Tigger movies. This is just plain awful. And the way Rabbit treats the other characters is awful. He was always a bit cranky and bossy, but again, this movie has gone from funnily cranky and bossy to mean and nasty. But most of all I am angry that whoever now "owns" the Winnie the Pooh franchise has trashed up the way the characters treat each other. (...)This gets one star, instead of no stars, only because the online form made me pick at least one star!

Disney has finally returned to the quality product we've all grown accustomed to in past years. "Springtime with Roo" not only entertains with its terrific story and fun musical selections- it teaches children about the importance of friendship and very simply, HOW to be a good friend.
As a discerning parent, I am always on the lookout for quality movies/videos for my three kids ages 5, 8, and 12. Unfortuately, the products that I've come across in recent years have been average at best and have lacked that spark that makes a "classic movie/DVD"- the kind that makes them want to watch over and over again.
They watched this one start to finish without interruption- not even for a cookie break!! Now their friends and cousins all want to come to our house to watch. Kids of all ages will absolutley love this latest movie- I highly recommend it!!

My daughter is 2 1/2 and we have been watching A very Merry Pooh Year since Christmas. We gave her this one for Easter and she completely forgot about the other one. It does involve Roo but mainly deals with Rabbit. Rabbit cancels Easter and declares it Spring Cleaning Day. It seems that the Easter before his preparations got ruined when everyone wouldn't follow his schedule. The others had fun without him and he was hurt. How could they enjoy Easter without him....the Easter ....Rabbit?? huh?. Roo is set on having an Easter egg hunt so Tigger and Roo try to convince Rabbit to change his mind. Only when the narrator steps in and shows him the future without his friends does he realize the err of his ways. So Scrooge....um, excuse me.....Rabbit hooks up the best easter egg hunt, Roo teaches him the importance of holidays and what good friends are made of and Rabbit gets crowned the Eater Bunny again. It's very colorful and sweet. It doesn't teach the real meaning of Easter but it's Winnie the Pooh. It's for young children. Reviewers should also consider that not everyone celebrates Easter. This is 60 minutes of learning that's sweet and engaging. My daughter hasn't seen a pooh flick that she didn't adore.

My 3 year old loves Piglet's Big Movie and the character Roo, so I thought this would become an instant hit with him. However, neither one of us could sit through it. He was very upset that Rabbit was so angry for the majority of the movie and is too young to understand why. Being a Disney film, of course it has a happy ending but it took too long to get to the themes of friendship and love that these Pooh movies are all about. This movie just wasn't fun.
