The Book of Winnie The Pooh
Author A.A. Milne created the classic children’s book series called Winnie The Pooh. These books were inspired by his son, Christopher Robin’s, relationship with his own teddy bear that he named from a black bear he would often visit at the London Zoo. Later, these books were brought to life when Disney created animated films based off of the beloved characters in A.A. Milne’s books. Winnie The Pooh is a simple, lovable, silly old bear with more wisdom than than first impressions might give. Here we explore the wonders of childhood in the film adaptations of Winnie The Pooh.
The animated stories in The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh bring to life beloved characters from The Hundred Acre Woods. These stories hold simple, but valuable lessons from our beloved friends in the Hundred Acre Woods.
- Piglet: “Pooh, for a bear of very little brain, you sure are a smart one.”
- “Now Pooh was not the sort to give up easily. When he put his mind to honey he stuck to it.”
- Christopher Robin: “I like that, too. But what I like most of all is just doing nothing.” Winnie the Pooh: “How do you do just nothing?” Christopher Robin: “Well, when grown-ups ask, “What are you going to do?” and you say, “Nothing,” and then you go and do it.” Winnie the Pooh: “I like that. Let’s do it all the time.”
- (Narrator: “And so we come to the last chapter, in which Pooh, and Christopher Robin go to the enchanted part of the forest, and we say goodbye.”) Winnie the Pooh: “Goodbye? Oh no, please. Can’t we just go back to page one and start all over again?”
Christopher Robin begins to grow with more responsibilities in Pooh’s Grand Adventure: The search for Christopher Robin and must go to school. Christopher Robin’s absence from the Hundred Acre Woods encourages Pooh bear and his friends to find their friend once again.
- Winnie the Pooh: “You’re just in time for the best part of the day!” Christopher Robin: “And what time is that?” Winnie the Pooh: “When you and me become we.”
- Christopher Robin: “If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together, there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”
- (Continued v.2) “But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart, I’ll always be with you.”
- Eeyore: “End of the road… nothing to do… and no hope of things getting better. Sounds like Saturday night at my house.”
In the live action film Christopher Robin, our favorite Hundred Acre Wood come to life yet again. Only this time Winnie The Pooh is on a mission to save Christopher Robin from the perils of life.
- Winnie The Pooh: “Doing nothing often leads to the very best kind of something.”
- Winnie The Pooh: “People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.”
- Winnie The Pooh: “I always get to where I’m going by walking away from where I’ve been.”
- Christopher Robin: “I’ve cracked!” Winnie The Pooh: “Oh, I don’t see any cracks. A few wrinkles, maybe.”
- Winnie The Pooh: “Christopher Robin what day is it?” Christopher Robin: “It’s today.” Winnie The Pooh: “My favorite day.”
- Evelyn Robin: “Your life is happening now, right in front of you.”
- Winnie The Pooh: “There’s always time for a smackeral of wonder.”
- Winnie The Pooh: “Well I am a bear of very little brain.” Christopher Robin: “No Pooh. You are I think a bear of very big heart.”
Other beloved wisdom from our friends in the Hundred Acre Woods.
