Product Details

The Disney animated films of any given period all seem to be cut from one big piece of the same brightly colored cloth. Whatever their sources, they have all been seamlessly Disneyized. The Winnie the Pooh shorts are typical products of the Wolfgang Reitherman period of the '60s and '70s, supervised by the animation director responsible for The Sword in the Stone and The Jungle Book. It's jaunty, tuneful stuff, but produced on the cheap, crude, and sketchy-looking in comparison with recent peak achievements of Disney craftsmanship such as Mulan. This second installment (1968) takes off from one of the most stirring episodes in the second of A.A. Milne's books of stories about Christopher Robin and the Hundred Acre Woods crew, "The House at Pooh Corner," in which the wood weathers a storm and even a flood, and the animal chums learn to pull together in an emergency. Think of it as a disaster movie for the preschool crowd.
