Winnie the Pooh is a self-described "bear of very little brain," but the lovable bear who's stuffed with fluff has an uncommon, clear-eyed philosophy that's admired worldwide. "There's a wisdom to Winnie the Pooh that comes through in a very subtle way," says producer Peter Del Vecho. "It's about enjoying friends, enjoying family, enjoying life. It returns us to a simpler time."
"He's a cross between the happiest gentleman and the sweetest child," adds Jim Cummings, who provides the voice of Pooh. "I think Pooh sees the world through honey-colored glasses."
Pooh is a loyal friend to his neighbors in Hundred Acre Wood. He's always willing to lend a helping paw-and he's more than happy to share a jar of honey with anyone who's interested. Indeed, Winnie the Pooh has an endless craving for honey or a smackerel of whatever is at hand to soothe that insatiable "rumbly in his tumbly."
It's that very "rumbly in his tumbly" that sets Winnie the Pooh's latest adventure in motion when he's faced with a host of empty honey jars. "Oh, bother," says Pooh, who must venture out in search of his favorite treat-of course, he finds everything but, despite his earnest efforts.
