Shelved amidst the memories of my childhood are the stories of A.A. Milne, who managed to capture the universal joy and innocence of being young when he penned his tales about Winnie the Pooh. While his books were very popular in his home country of Britain, they didn't become familiar to most North American audiences until another storyteller decided to animate his lovable characters.

Walt Disney introduced the "tubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff" in 1966 with Winnie The Pooh and the Honey Tree. Here, the "bear of very little brain" (voiced by Sterling Holloway) goes searching for a smackerel of his favorite food, only to anger some busy bees and overstay his welcome at Rabbit's (voice of Junius Matthews) house. In 1968, the Academy Award winning Blustery Day blew into movie theaters, telling the tale of a "Windsday" that gets a trifle out of hand when it blows down Owl's (voice of Hal Smith) tree house. Happily, his pals in the Hundred Acre Wood band together to help him find a new home. Next followed Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too (1974), which featured the irrepressible, striped tiger (voiced by Paul Winchell) that can't stop himself from bouncing into trouble.

Although released as three short films, the project was originally envisioned as one movie. And it made its motion picture d0xE9but as such in1977 under the title of The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. Strung together in chapter format, this version allows Pooh fans to collect all of these classics in one.

Disney's efforts not only maintained the charm of A.A. Milne's work, but they also delighted audiences the world over for many years. So if it's been a while since you've dusted off your childhood memories, now may be the perfect opportunity to introduce your kids to The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh.
