The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (1977)

mv5bnjg5mjqzytqtmtuzzc00nzlkltgzzdetmjg0owy4ntnjnzjlxkeyxkfqcgdeqxvynji4mju4mty40._v1_

A collection of animated shorts based on the stories and characters by A. A. Milne. (IMDb)
Like its titular bear, it’s full of fluff and charm, from the fun characters (absent-minded and chatty Owl is a–wait for it–hoot) to the endearing animation and storytelling that often mix together in creative ways (see the 4th-wall breaking narrator and page references). The miniature tales are cute and funny and of little substance. That said, the touching final chapter, taken in the context of the film’s intentional framing of the stories as fictional, offers something interesting to ponder.
7.5/10 (Really Good)
