Winnie-the-Pooh may seem like an innocent children's story on the surface, but after deeper inspection it doesn't appear to be so! Journals published in the Canadian Medical Journal have shed new light on the characters.
First written by A. A. Milne in 1926, and after being acquired by Disney, Winnie-the-Pooh went on to become one of the most successful children's series of all time. However, it turns out there are immense psychological undertones throughout the series and each character was meant to portray a different disorder. Tigger has severe ADHD, Piglet has anxiety, Rabbit has OCD, Owl has narcissism, Eore has extreme depression,Christopher Robin (Represents Schizophrenia (He has delusions by seeing the other characters, they are not real to anyone else but him.) while Pooh represents an eating disoder!

Hi guys, I grew up with the series since my childhood and here are my thoughts on it.
I absolutely find the story of each episode interesting, my favourite was when Tigger impersonates Sherlock Holmes and when he imagines that all of his friends get turn into honey pots prompting him to confess that he stole a honey pot (or something like that).
The Intro Theme
Frankly, I just could not get the intro tune out of my head! I still remember it to this day, but the lyrics I completely forgotten about it.
I absolutely adored all of the characters, because like Mickey and his friends, Winnie the Pooh & his friends represent my childhood. I always feel sorry for Piglet especially, because he is timid.
TTFN, Ta Ta For Now!
So, what do you think of this short review?

Here is a different way of looking at it or giving opinion about the Winnie the Pooh cartoon.
The world consist of all kind of people and personality types. Most human beings have good, bad, ugly, nice, characters, happy, said, confused and many other type of emotions; all in one. If anyone say I don’t have bad, ugly or don’t have sad, confused emotions at times, than they are really kidding themselves.. It all depends what it is we are looking for when we are watching the cartoon or anything else for that matter. You have a choice of seeing the positive message; good, happy, nice compassionate, playful characters, or you can see the negative, bad, ugly, depressed, sad part of it. You can see both yet take the part that pertains to you.
