    Winnie the Pooh is a yellow teddy bear who loves eating honey based on the books by A. A. Milne. He first appears in the Disney featurette Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree.

    Why He Really Deserves Honey

    1. Winnie the Pooh is one of the most well-known animated characters ever created.
    2. He may sometimes be a bear of very little brain, but he is a good friend to all those who live with him in the Hundred Acre Wood, including Tigger, Piglet and especially, the cute and wonderful Christopher Robin, as well as Darby and Buster.
    3. His design is cute and in a way faithful to E. H. Shepard's illustrations.
      • In fact, many people associate Pooh with the Disney incarnation more than any other version.
      • In the Christopher Robin (2018) movie, Pooh is also noticeably fluffy which makes you want to cuddle him.
    4. He is simple-minded but charming.
    5. His sweet iconic voice, originally provided by the late Sterling Holloway.
      • Even Jim Cummings, his current voice actor, pulled it off perfectly. He often calls sick children in hospitals using his Pooh voice, which is very sweet of him and also still captures the sweetness that this character gives.
      • Hal Smith while not as recognized as them, was just as good.
    6. Pooh has many memorable quotes, such as:
      • "Oh, bother."
      • "Oh, yes. I'm rumbly in my tumbly."
    7. He's the Star of the franchise, as he's likable in all of the movies, all of the TV specials, all of the TV shows (including the ones from Disney Junior), the crossover with Doc McStuffins, all of the video games he's appeared in (including Kingdom Hearts), and of course, Christopher Robin.

    "Oh Bother" Qualities

    1. He had a derailment in some of the official licensed comics, changing his personality from a cute happy little bear to a selfish jerk. Luckily this was only an unintentional minor mistake.
    2. He's been a part of his own infamous YouTube crossover adventures series when it features a million other cartoon characters along with other atrocities such as absurd family members like cousins, both play and character introduction scenes that are too repetitive, unnecessary relationships between cartoon characters and real life characters, unfair censorship, character voice lines copied into other characters and cringe dubbing.
    3. He and Piglet were severely flanderized in Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey.

    Trivia

    • In the original books, Pooh only wears his signature red shirt during the winter.
    • He has often been compared to Chinese president Xi Jinping, causing the character to be banned on the Chinese internet.
    • In February 2023 a Winnie the Pooh horror movie titled Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey was released.
    • He spawned a cameo in DreamWorks Animation's Bee Movie, alongside his good friend Piglet.
    • In 1999, Cosgrove Hall Films wanted to collaborate with Disney to produce a stop-motion Winnie the Pooh series, but Disney felt that they weren't really interested in collaborating with Cosgrove Hall.
    • He is one of the most iconic cartoon characters ever created apart from characters such as Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny, SpongeBob SquarePants, Super Mario, Bob the Builder, Pikachu, Hello Kitty, Charlie Brown and Snoopy, Homer Simpson, Sonic the Hedgehog, Thomas the Tank Engine, and Tom and Jerry. He is also possibly one of the most famous fictional characters out there.
