Winnie the Pooh has become one of the most loved Disney characters of all time. The books by A.A. Milne have always been considered classics of children's literature, but Disney brought Pooh to the children of the world in a very special way - first through a series of shorts which were later combined into a feature-length film, through several educational films, and then in a television series.
The educational short, released in 1981, was titled Winnie the Pooh Discovers the Seasons and Winnie the Pooh and Friends was aired in December 1982 as Pooh's first television appearance. A fourth short was released in 1983 titled Winnie the Pooh and a Day for Eeyore. The POOH films were all well received, and were all well animated with the usual Disney excellence. In 1988 the Disney people began a new Pooh adventure by introducing 'the bear with little brain' to Saturday morning cartoons. At first Pooh appeared on ABC opposite those other popular Disney bears, the Gummis on NBC. The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh was originally an hour long show made up of three shorts. In the 1989 season Pooh moved to a half hour slot teamed up with the Gummi Bears (now on ABC) and starred in another series of shorts. Over fifty of these cartoons have been released so far and while they are designed for a younger audience than the original Pooh films, they are well animated (by Saturday morning standards) and enjoyable. Though Pooh is the main character in these shorts he is often upstaged by his fellow critters, Tigger, Rabbit, Kanga, Roo, Owl, Eeyore, Christopher Robin and Gopher. The latter being the only one invented by Disney for the films and not appearing in any of the books.
