Great childhood memories....my kids the love "classic" Pooh DVD we have. Disney has really corrupted Winnie the Pooh recently, especially in its newest show with extra noise, action, and a ridiculous looking girl with a baseball cap as the human character - replacing the sweet Christopher Robin, I guess. My girls have no interest in watching it.
That's a shame. I didn't think "Disney" when I first did this post. I had to make sure there was a connection before I tagged it. Disney corrupts even their own classics - think of all the ridiculous, straight-to-DVD sequels they've done.
Not only has Disney corrupted WtP, but apparently they have also been embroiled in an ugly legal brouhaha, a three-way fight with AA Milne's heirs and the heirs of Stephen Slesinger, the American literary agent who bought the rights to Pooh from Milne in 1930. As far as I can tell, no one involved misses the mud, except perhaps for Claire Milne, daughter of Christopher Robin Milne, who suffers from cerebral palsy.We're expecting our first grandchild in May, and our daughter vetoed using Pooh in the nursery because of her aversion to Disney's business practices. I bought a Pooh blanket just this afternoon hoping she'll relent -- Pooh was her favorite when she was a child.Walt's rolling over in his grave. If we could harness that energy, plus perhaps that of Sam Walton, we wouldn't need oil.
I think of Pooh in two ways - the Disney way (with Pooh wearing a red shirt) and the real "classic" Pooh - where non-Disney merchandising/products (as in nursery bedding, etc.) remains similar to the illustrations in the original books. Of course Disney markets baby and kid products with the Red Shirt Pooh as well - they not to my taste though.So when I mention the "classic" Disney Pooh - it entertained me as a child, but Chris, you're exactly right; most [all?] Disney sequels - Pooh or otherwise - are loud, overbearing and tacky - e.g., straight to DVD.
I loved to watch the first movies because it was so good but now Disney just make blurb with it.Generic Viagra Buy Viagra
