I watched most of the stories about Winnie The Pooh when I was a child and as my siblings were growing up.  I thought the stories were great and the characters were simply masterful.  Eeyore was always my favorite.  Yet it was when I discovered A.A. Milne’s poetry that I came to truly understand just how well he grasped the English language and could make it do magical things.  Now the tales of Pooh and his pals are continuing to grow and they’re ready on DVD right now!

Starting this April 7th, now available on DVD from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment comes the next musical chapter in the lives of everyone’s favorite characters from the Hundred Acre Wood.   Tigger & Pooh And A Musical Too is ready to come springing out of your television screen and transform your living room into a place of magic, music and friendship.  Bring home this great new addition to the classic children’s stories today!

It’s another great day in the Hundred Acre Wood and everyone is busy planning for a great big picnic.  Rabbit did most of the work and everything ended up turning out fantastically.  In order to thank him for this, the rest of the Wood decide to name him as Mayor.  Rabbit thinks he has it all under control, but things quickly spiral far out of his command.  Throw in Pooh, Tigger, Kanga, Roo and some great new friends, a whole bunch of new and exciting songs, and you have an adventure that won’t be soon forgotten.

The special features included in this DVD are a music video from Kenny Loggins for his song “Underneath The Same Sky” and a great theater game from Rabbit which will help you to create your own special play.

This is a full length movie and it features seven brand new songs.  I thought this movie was very clever and just as cute and wonderful as the early films.  This series has always excelled at teaching important lessons about life in slightly more obtuse ways that don’t have to smack kids upside the face to get the point across.  It took me a little while to get used to seeing some of my childhood companions in computer animation, but their looks were similar enough and it ended up working quite well.  I’m certainly no Luddite, but I think that we are prone to digitize for more things than perhaps we ought to.  There was something endearingly warm and sloppy about the original animations and that very human touch was left missing.  Regardless, this was a great musical adventure and I’m sure that you and your children will both enjoy it.

Bring home this Musical adventure today!

This DVD is available at Amazon.com.
