The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (Full Movie)
Celebrate Winnie-the-Pooh Day
A fun day to celebrate this very loveable old bear. Winnie-the-Pooh Day is celebrated every year on the creators birthday, A. A. Milne, on January 18, 1882. The Winnie-the-Pooh books were created in 1926 and this silly old bear has been entertaining us ever since. Milne named the character Winnie-the-Pooh from a teddy bear owned by his son Christopher Robin Milne, who was the basis for the character Christopher Robin. In fact, many of Pooh's friends were named from Christopher's toys (Tigger, Piglet, Eeyore, etc), except for Gopher, Owl and Rabbit. Christopher Milne had named his toy bear, Winnie, after a Canadian black bear he would often see at the London Zoo. The name "Pooh" came from a swan they had met while on vacation.
