The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh is a 1977 American animated musical comedy movie produced by Walt Disney Productions. It is the 22nd movie in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series. It was first released on March 11, 1977.
The movie is made from three previously released animated short movies based upon the Winnie-the-Pooh books by A. A. Milne: Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree (1966), Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day (1968), and Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too (1974). A fourth and final short movie based on the original books, Winnie the Pooh and a Day for Eeyore, was released in 1983. It is included as a bonus feature on the VHS, DVD and Blu-Ray releases of the movie.
The characters from the movie became very popular. There have been sequels, television programs, clothing, books, and toys based on the characters. The movie differs from the three individual shorts by having newly created material to link the stories together. It also has an ending to give closure to the stories. The ending is based on the final chapter of The House at Pooh Corner.
