Playhouse Presents” Winnie the Pooh”
- Winnie-the-Pooh is Christopher Robin's fat little
"bear of very little brain" who would
like to drift peacefully through life, humming tunes
and stopping frequently to eat "a little something."
However, he finds himself involved in all sorts
of frantic adventures, assisted by such friends
as the dismal Eeyore, Piglet and Rabbit, with his
countless relations. Pooh's intentions are always
the best, but his passion for honey and condensed
milk keeps getting him into trouble. When friend
Piglet gets roped into Kanga's household and Kanga
starts bathing him (with soap!) and forcing down
spoonfuls of Strengthening Medicine, Pooh wants
to fly to the rescue, but he's had so many snacks
he gets stuck in the door. Directed by Pat Price.
