| Charming film...
I don't think it is quite as good as The Many Adaventures of Winnie the Pooh, which was one of the better films of the 60s-70s. Winnie the Pooh's Most Grand Adaventure is a charming and sweet film, that is noticeably quieter in tone to the 1977 film, but for me that is never an excuse for not liking a film. The animation is lovely, with lovely colours, and fairly true in style to the 1977 film. The voice talents are very good, particularly John Fiedler and Paul Winchell as Piglet and Tigger. Jim Cummings is also good as Pooh, but I don't think David Warner was as thoughtful enough a narrator as Sebastian Cabot, though I still liked him. The story is fast moving and the dialogue is delightfully humorous, but there may be some elements that may scare young children. Also, although sweet, adults will find the songs a bit limp, that said Forever and Ever is so touching. All in all, a sweet and charming film. 8/10 Bethany Cox.

Critic Reviews

Did You Know?


This is the first Winnie the Pooh film to have a narrator telling the story without including a book.


The Narrator: Once, upon the last day of a golden summer, there was a boy... and a bear. The boy, who we shall meet in a moment, was called Christopher Robin. The bear was called Winnie the Pooh. And together, they had many grand adventures in a remarkable place ...


Rabbit accidentally rips the map in half. Tigger chases after the other half right over the ravine. When the tree falls from under him and he falls with the tree, the map starts to drift downward. When Pooh, Piglet, Rabbit, and Eeyore look down at Tigger in the ravine and he looks up at him, the other half of the map is nowhere to be seen. When Rabbit also jumps in after Piglet, he lets go of the only other piece of the map that they have, and Eeyore tries to retrieve it until Rabbit grabs him by the tail and pulls him with him into the ravine to rescue Tigger. However that piece of the map somehow ends up back in Rabbit's possession between his teeth as he holds Eeyore's tail and Piglet's hand. Yet the other half of the map that they've been chasing after is still nowhere to be seen floating down past them in the ravine as they attempt to save Tigger. It eventually reappears when all five characters have resurfaced from the mud pool after they had fallen.

Crazy Credits

The original VHS of the film begins with the Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection logo, as the result of a video editing error. This only occurred on North American prints.

Alternate Versions

The original VHS opened with the Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection logo, despite not being a part of that collection. On the 2006 DVD and all prints since, the logo is deleted and the film opens with no Disney logo whatsoever.
