Reading Into The Book Of Pooh
This new version of some Pooh tales is the most delightful addition to the Disney Channel lineup. I think that the new approach of bringing the art of Bunraku puppetry to television is not only inspired, but most welcome!
It's great to see a fresh look at the bear and his pals since old episodes of "The New Adventures Of Winnie-The-Pooh" were getting kind of tiresome. It's wonderful that Pooh has some new stories to talk about in a fun and eye-popping environment. Plus, the idea of spreading the importance of literacy is a fantastic approach to get Pooh fans involved in learning.
The songs are hummable and cute, and it's great to see most of the original (or second-generation) voices take part in such an experimental series. I say congrats to the crew at Disney on this terrific & adorable NEW Poo
