It's a hilariously haunting Halloween in the Hundred Acre Wood. Roo's best new pal, Lumpy, is excited to trick-or-treat for the first time ... until Tigger warns them about the dreaded Gobloon, who'll turn you into a Jaggedy Lantern if he catches you. But if they catch the Gobloon before it catches them, they get to make a wish! With Roo by his side, Lumpy knows he can face anything. So when Pooh eats all the Halloween candy, Lumpy and Roo decide to be "brave together, brave forever" and catch the Gobloon so they can wish for more. When the two friends become separated, however, Roo decides to wish for something even more important. Filled with adventure, unconditional friendship, and lots of laughter, POOH'S HEFFALUMP HALLOWEEN MOVIE is a sweet treat for the whole family.
Halloween can be a frightening time of year for piglets and young Heffalumps, but the power of unconditional friendship should never be underestimated. When a fierce "Gobloon" and an absence of candy threaten to ruin Lumpy's first trick-or-treating experience, Roo and Lumpy set out to capture the Gobloon and save Halloween. As the scared pair journeys toward the tree of terror, the pair reflects on Piglet's mastery of his fear of Halloween and begins to realize that togetherness empowers them. Perhaps true friendship can triumph over an evil Gobloon--even if the Gobloon does have the power to turn its pursuers into "jaggedy lanterns." But, what will happen when Roo and Lumpy become separated? French and Spanish language tracks are included on this DVD and bonus features include an almost impossible "trick or re-treat" game and party instructions for Pooh's Boo Bingo, Pass the Pumpkin, and a Heffalump Halloween Party Planner. (Ages 3 - 7) --Tami Horiuchi

The film's story involves Lumpy and Roo going of to find a "Goobloon". Goobloons, mythic creatures of the 100 Acre Wood, grant wishes when they are captured, but if you don't catch them, you are turned into a pumpkin. Mid-trip, Lumpy gets too scared to continue, so Roo tells him the story of how Piglet was brave on a Halloween long ago (here's "Boo to You, Too!"). Then there's a climax after that where the two of them get seperated, and I won't say anymore.
In general, it's an alright DVD, but it would better if they just had the "Heffalump" story played out straight, even if it was just forty minutes long. Because the way "Boo to You, Too!" is presented here, it feels like a lengthy commercial break, not the Halloween classic that it has been in my household for so many years.
Just in time for Halloween, the popular characters from 100 Acre Wood such as Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, Eeyore, Rabbit, Lumpy the Heffalump and Roo return in a family film for Halloween.
In the film, Lumpy (the elephant) has never experienced Halloween ever. But wants to experience the excitement that his friend have, especially taking part in "trick or treat". But curious as he was to take part in it, he also becomes fearful after Tigger's "Gobloon" story that if you are caught by one, one will turn into a jaggedy lantern.
A bit frightened, Lumpy fortunately has the help of his good friend Roo to accompany him during Halloween. But what happens when both become separated during Halloween?
The 2005 Winnie the Pooh film "Pooh's Heffalump Halloween Movie" gets its re-release on DVD but this time around, a limited edition Winnie the Pooh disguised as Tigger plush is offered.
VIDEO & AUDIO:
Video is featured in Widescreen (1:78:1), enhanced for 16×9 televisions. Animation is quite nice for this film, featuring vibrant colors of the characters and 100 Acre Woods but also nicely painted backgrounds. There is nothing dark or sinister, but you see the occasional bats and leafless forest that may look spooky. It's important to note that the animation is hand-drawn and not 3D like recently released Winnie the Pooh animated films.
Audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound (including French and Spanish language). For the part, this film is dialogue driven and is clear and understandable (Note: Some children who are not familiar with British accents may have a hard time understanding Lumpy, as my six-year-old commented during the film, "does the elephant have a stuffy nose").
Home theaters owners will mostly notice the film to be more front and center channel driven with the occasional bats screeching and leaves floating in the wind once in awhile utilized in the soundtrack. Music is a big part of the film as background music is played during the background and at times, a few of the characters sing a song through the film.
"Pooh's Heffalump Halloween Movie Limited Edition DVD Gift Set" comes with a stuff animal of Winnie the Pooh wearing a Tigger outfit and the following special features (games and DVD-Rom content):

The entertaining and family fun Winnie the Pooh Halloween film (from 2005) gets its re-release just in time for Halloween.
"Pooh's Heffalump Halloween Movie Limited Edition DVD Gift Set" is a family fun DVD featuring Winnie the Pooh and gang. Can children of all ages watch the film, I would say yes. But parents who are cautious about images of bats in animated format, aside from Tigger's (not-so-scary story), it depends on how a younger toddler may react to it but for the most part, the film is light-hearted at best.
Of course, one of the biggest differences versus the 2005 release is the amount of games and DVD-Rom materials, so children can take part in the many games included. As well, as parents who can access a party planner and recipes.For the limited edition DVD gift set, I have to admit that the Winnie the Pooh disguised as Tigger plush is one of the coolest Pooh plushes that I have ever seen (the Tigger hood can be removed as well).
As a father, I have grown up with Winnie the Pooh long ago and when my son was born, he grew up with the character as well. Now that he is six-years-old, it's great to find a children's Halloween animated story (aside from the Peanuts/Charlie Brown special) and DVD with special features that both parents and children can take part in together. The games are games that children can learn from and are games that are part of Disney DVD's "Imagine, Laugh & Learn".
Overall, "Pooh's Heffalump Halloween Movie Limited Edition DVD Gift Set" is an enjoyable and family fun-tastic Winnie the Pooh DVD release from Disney and definitely a gift set worth purchasing!
