Visually-Delightful Show for the 2-6 Age Bracket
22 February 2005 | by trueluvnanarchySee all my reviews

The Book of Pooh is an all around excellent, visually-delightful children's show. Notice how the majority of negative comments expressed here are critical of the characters' appearance rather than show content, suggesting more than a tinge of irrational resentment. We all feel protective of the shows and characters we grew up watching, which can create a severe bias when it comes to remakes and modernized versions of these shows. The Book of Pooh is a great example of this narrow-minded mentality. The Hundred Acre Wood is brought to life in a near-flawless mix of puppeteering and computer animation, with catchy musical numbers and interesting plots to keep the young mind entertained as well as educated. A very important aspect to keep in mind is the age difference in viewers of the New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh cartoon and The Book of Pooh, with the latter aimed at the 2-6 age group, whereas the former is geared towards older children about 6-10. This is why the Book of Pooh has larger characters, simpler backgrounds, and less complex but more educational plots. This is all to keep the attention of toddlers while teaching them basic moral lessons, as well as simple counting and reading skills. Bottom line: It's a charming, imaginative show for the toddler/preschool audience, and adults won't be too bored watching it either. As long as they aren't constantly comparing it to the other Pooh shows. :-)
