Winnie the Pooh - Small cuddly bear doll that lived in the mythical Hundred Acre Wood on THE NEW ADVENTURES OF WINNIE THE POOH/ABC /1988-93.

 Winne the Pooh

Pooh ("the bear of no brain at all") shared his adventures with Christopher Robin, his young master and other animal friends (also stuffed dolls) Piglet, Owl, Kanga, and Roo, Rabbit, Eeyore, and Tigger. The Pooh character first appeared in the classic children's stories "Winnie-The-Pooh" (1926) and "The House At Pooh Corner" (1928) written by Alan Alexander "A. A." Milne (1882-1956).

The characters were inspired by several of the toys owned by Milne's son Christopher. The character Winnie derived its first name from an American black bear cub seen in a London zoo in 1914; and last name Pooh from a swan seen while on vacation.

The Walt Disney theatrical animations (based on the designs of the story's original illustrator E.H. Shepard) included Winnie The Pooh and the Honey Tree (1966), Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day (1968), Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too (1974), Winnie the Pooh and a Day for Eeyore (1983) Sterling Holloway provided the voice of Pooh (his TV series voice provided by Jim Cummings).

The book "Tao of Pooh" (1982) written by Benjamin Hoff associated the themes of the Pooh stories with the Chinese philosophers of Taoism.
