"How sweet to be a Cloud
Floating in the Blue!
Every little cloud
Always sings aloud.

How sweet to be a Cloud
Floating in the Blue!
It makes him very proud
To be a little cloud."

Pooh Going Downstairs...Head First

"Here he is Edward Bear, coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump, on the back of his head, behind Christopher Robin. It is, as far as he knows, the only way of coming downstairs, but sometimes he feels that there really is another way, if only he could stop bumping for a moment and think of it...Anyhow, here he is at the bottom, and ready to be introduced to you. Winnie-the-Pooh."

-Chapter I

Written with charm, humor, and imagination, his Pooh stories have become classics, loved by young and old alike.

Pooh line

"Sometimes, when you are
a Bear of very Very Little Brain,
and you think of Things,
you find sometimes that a
Thing which seemed very Thingish
inside you
is quite different when it Disney's Pooh
gets out into the open
and has other people
looking at it."

-A.A. Milne

About Winnie the Pooh

"Winnie the Pooh" was based on the books by A(lan) A(lexander) Milne which he wrote for his son Christopher Robin Milne. Christopher received a stuffed bear toy when he was one year old which was called "Pooh" adapted from a swan they met while vacationing. The name "Winnie" was taken from an American black bear cub at the London Zoo in 1914. The rest of Christopher Robin's toy animals were also written into the stories.

Pooh is Stuck!

"...So he started to climb out of the hole. He pulled with his back paws, and in a little while his nose was out in the open again...and then his ears...and then his front paws...and then his shoulders...and then-

"Oh, help! said Pooh.
"...Oh, help and bother!"

Eeyore

"The old gret donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?"- and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about..."

They're loaded with vim and with vigor

Winnie the Pooh Song Lyrics

Winnie the Pooh
From Winnie The Pooh and the Honey Tree
Written by: Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman

Deep in the hundred acre wood where Christopher Robin plays
You'll find the enchanted neighborhood of Christopher's childhood days
A donkey named Eeyore is his friend and Kanga and little Roo
There's Rabbit and Piglet and there's Owl, but most of all Winnie the Pooh

Winnie the Pooh
Winnie the Pooh
Tubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff
He's Winnie the Pooh
Winnie the Pooh
Willy nilly silly old bear

Pooh Bear

Winnie the Pooh
Winnie the Pooh
Tubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff
He's Winnie the Pooh
Winnie the Pooh
Willy nilly silly old bear

ChristopherChristopher Robin and I walked along
Under branches lit up by the moon Eeyore
Posing our questions to Owl and Eeyore
As our days disappeared all too soon.
But I've wandered much further today than I should
And I can't find my
way back to the wood

So help me if you can
I've got to get back
to the House at pooh Corner by one
You'd be surprised
There's so much to be done
Count all the bees in the hive bee hive
Chase all the clouds from the sky
Back to the days of Christopher Robin
and Pooh.mini Pooh

Winnie the Pooh doesn't know what to do
Got a honey jar stuck on his nose
He came to me asking help and advice
And from here no one knows where he goes
OwlSo I sent him to ask of the owl if he's there
How to loosen the jar from the
nose of a bear.

It's hard to explain how a few precious things
Seem to follow throughout all our lives
After all's said and done I was watching my son
Sleeping there with my bear by his side
So I tucked him in, I kissed him
and as I was going
I swear that the old bear whispered,
"Boy welcome home."

Believe me if you can
I've finally come back to the House at Pooh Corner by one
What do you know
There's so much to be done
Count all the bees in the hive
Chase all the clouds in the sky
Back to the days of Christopher Robin
Back to the days of Christopher Robin
Back to the days of Pooh.

Piglet
