Winnie the Pooh is a teddy bear born from the imagination of the English writer Alan Alexander Milne, who in 1929 published the book "Winnie the Pooh". In fact, the writer was inspired by the fantasy of his son Christopher Robin, who always played with his teddy bear given to him on his first birthday. In a few years, this toy was joined by a donkey, a tiger, two kangaroos and a pig, all those who will become Winnie the Pooh's inseparable adventure companions. The name Winnie was inspired by a little bear that was in the London Zoo whose real name was Winniepeg, while Pooh was the name of a swan.
Milne's stories were immediately a great success among children, so much so that they were broadcast on a radio program and later there was the publication of the stories "Now We Are Six" and "The House at Pooh Corner". These tales have all been illustrated by Ernest Shepard, who was inspired by the places where Christoper Robin usually played and in particular the wood that will become "The Hundred Acre Wood". In 1961 Walt Disney bought the rights to the character and later made three short films entitled: "Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree", "Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day" (which won the Oscar for best cartoon) and "Winnie the Pooh and the Tigger Too" all contained within the film "The adventures of Winnie the Pooh". From a graphic point of view, Walt Disney's Winnie the Pooh, despite having been reworked for its transposition to cartoons, always remains very similar to Shepard's original. Since 1977 with "The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh", Disney has produced a long series of cartoons and animation film disconnecting from Milne's original stories, but always aimed mainly at an audience of preschool-aged children. Already from its first appearances Winnie the Pooh appears as a naive bear and greedy for honey, which he tries to get by by combining a sea of troubles. He lives inside an Old Oak and his friends are the child Christopher Robin (just like Milne's son), Tigger a cheerful and jumping tiger, Piglet a very fearful little pink pig, Tappo a bunny who always complains and in particular about the troubles caused. from Pooh, Eeyore a donkey always sad and disconsolate because he constantly loses his tail, attached by a pin, being like everyone a plush toy. Then there are the two kangaroos: Mother Kanga and little Roo who always stays in the marsupial pocket and the wise owl Uffa. Lately he joined this company Effy the breathless . Among the various cartoons we remember "Happy New Year with Winnie the Pooh" where Winnie and her friends are intent on preparing for Christmas and the New Year. Cappo, the organizer of the various parties is annoyed by Winnie's attitude and the others who do nothing but disturb him, therefore he threatens to stop doing that job. Winnie the Pooh, Tigger and the other friends try to calm him down, promising him that with the new year they would change. Piglet begins to jump, forgetting his shyness, Winnie the Pooh is saddened because he no longer eats honey and Tigger ... stops bouncing. In "Winnie the Pooh and Valentine's Day", Tappo questions the festival of lovers and proposes to abolish this anniversary, where everyone exchanges greeting cards and gifts, with dedications of mutual affection and esteem. But he too will have to change his mind when a mysterious package arrives with an unexpected gift.
In the movie "Finding Christopher Robin" Winnie The Pooh and his friends Piglet, Tigger, Cap and Eeyore organize a courageous expedition in search of Christopher Robin, who seems to have left for a strange and dangerous destination. Of course they will get in trouble and it will be they who will be rescued by Christopher Robin, returning from a place that was not at all as bad as our little friends feared. in "Ro and the magic of spring" Ro can't wait for Easter, but Tappo doesn't share his enthusiasm: for him, spring is synonymous with great cleaning. Fortunately, Tigger will be able to find the right topic to strike Cap to the heart and to make Easter a great party for everyone.
