Product Description

Believing in oneself is not always easy and it proves especially difficult for a bear of very little brain named Pooh and his friends when Christopher Robin mysteriously disappears from the Hundred Acre Woods one fall day. After charging Pooh Bear to remember that "you're braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think," Christopher Robin fails to appear in the woods the next morning. After mis-reading a honey-covered note from Christopher Robin, Pooh and his friends Rabbit, Tigger, Piglet, and Eeyore head out to find and rescue Christopher Robin from a forbidding place called "Skull." The journey is terrifying and difficult and each of the friends is besieged by insecurity about his apparent inadequacies. Rabbit begins to doubt his intelligence, Piglet his bravery, Tigger his strength, and Pooh his overall competence, but eventually the friends discover their inherent strengths and come to realize that perception plays a key role in fear and that the power of friendship can overcome even the biggest obstacles. (Ages 2 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

Customer Reviews:

  • Pooh's Grand Adventure is a GREAT Pooh movie!
    Pooh's Grand Adventure is SUPER GRAND! I love it.
    WHAT HAPPENS: There's a boy named Christopher Robin who has a teddy bear named Pooh. They are hanging out together. Christopher wants to tell Pooh something, but they have lots of fun together and he forgets. When he remembers, he attaches a note to Pooh's honey pot. But Pooh gets it messy with honey and nobody can read it, but Owl can misread it! He thinks Christopher is going to an evil place called Skull. Join Pooh and friends on an adventure thru the 100 Acre Woods.
    WHAT I THINK: Some people complain that it is scary for their child/children. If your kid (or you if you're a kid) are more than 5 years old it ought to be OK. The reason I knocked off one star is that I hate the map song/Never Trust Your Eyes. It makes it look like sences are useless and if you don't have a map, you're doomed. All the other songs are fantastic! Signed, StoryMaker. "Gotta trust the kid's review!"...more info
  • Save your money!
    We were very disappointed with this movie; it was terrible. I don't know what the creators were thinking but it is not in keeping with the sweet and whimsical tradition of Winnie the Pooh. The story focuses on searching in the "Scarey part of 100 acre woods." Hello! The 100 acre woods are not supposed to be scarey and this is not an appropriate movie for children under 4. Then the story line is very boring with a predictable ending......more info
  • A Grand Adventure!
    Winnie the Pooh has yet to dissapoint, and this film is no exception. The film is adorable, and humorous too, though maybe a little scary for very small children.
    In this adventure, Pooh and friends are off to find Christopher Robin, who they think has been kidnapped and taken to 'Skull'. He in actual fact has gone to school. The movie is great fun,and I know it will thrill adults and children alike!...more info
  • Watch this grand adventure!
    Christopher Robin is starting school, but he doesn't have it in himself to tell Pooh Bear that he won't be home to share his days with Pooh. Instead, he writes a note to Pooh, but the note is misinterpretted and Owl claims that Christopher Robin is trapped in a place called Skull, an evil place, at the very edges of the hundred acre wood. And so to get their beloved friend back, Pooh and his friends set off on an adventure to find Christopher Robin. I have always loved Pooh, and this movie is definatly for Pooh lovers. Although straight-to-video movies tend to be on the worst side for quality, this is one of the better ones I've seen out. It's very touching and the characters seem like old friends to me when I watch. Maybe I sound cheesy but this movie's worth a try!...more info

  • Pooh's Great Adventure
    Pooh's Grand Adventure - The Search for Christopher RobinThis was a gift to our three year old nephew. He truly enjoyed this DVD as he had already worn this particular one out....more info
  • Obsolete and Expensive
    I cannot believe the price on this nonanamorphic letterboxed DVD. It is obsolete before it is published. How do any sell?...more info
  • please don't underestimate
    I loved this movie as a kid, and while I remember it being frightening in some moments and certainly sad at others, it definitely didn't scar me for life. It's a thoughtful movie, and it stuck with me through the years, so I stand by it. Long live Winnie and no, children's movies shouldn't be happy all the time....more info
  • Too Scary
    I agree with the other reviews that this movie is too scary. It is not in keeping with the other Pooh movies. I had not read any reviews before buying it and was very surprised at how dark and scary it was. I had to turn it off and won't let my daughter see it again. If you are looking for something Pooh bear, happy and educational, go with the new My Friends Tigger and Pooh DVD. It came out at the beginning of March 08 and has 3 episodes (2 stories each). You can see them on TV but having them on DVD frees up your DVR and lets you take the super sleuths in the car or your portable DVD player....more info
  • one star is way too much
    This is the opposite of what Pooh was meant to be - warm, whimsical and witty. That is too say it is cold, plodding, and witless. Pooh, tigger, rabbit, and piglet discover their inadequacies on a dark, angst ridden search for Christopher Robbin. He went to school, left a note, they misread it, etc. This leads to an overlong, anxiety producing adventure through dark, harsh terrain with terrfiying falls and the like. My two year old insists on watching it although it scares and disturbs her. It should be rated PG-13....more info
  • Quite enjoyable
    I rather enjoyed this movie. For once it had a somewhat serious plot with actual character development. It wasn't all light and happiness, but it avoided being dark, as well. Well worth the money if you're not stuck expecting it to be just like the other Pooh videos....more info
  • The Best Pooh movie by far!
    This movie is excellent. Fans of the classic Pooh cartoons ("Blustery Day," "Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree," "A Day for Eeyore" and the like), and of "The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" will love it. Wonderful songs embellish this perfectly created Pooh story. Some complain that it is dark, scary, and such. Certain parts are, but definitely not overly so. It's necessary to the plot and the message of the film; not every second is 'terrifying' and even for young children, no scene should be too 'scary.' The sad emotional quality of this movie sets it apart a little bit too, but again, it is not too sad for kids, nor is it much more 'depressing' than many other Pooh tales. There is a happy ending with a fun song just as should be expected. From beginning to end 'Pooh's Grand Adventure' is truly grand and should not be missed; the only possible problem I can see is the disclusion of Gopher! ...more info
  • review
    i am writing this at amazon's request. any parents who enjoy having their children watch depressing material, will get great satisfaction from this dvd. as a child, i enjoyed the pooh books and disney cartoon version immensely. as a new parent, i find the new tigger and pooh series (playhouse disney) equally fun. what happened in between, i'm unsure. i took a chance on this, and 3 other "hundred acre wood" movies. to try and fill in the gap as to how they moved on to todays current playhouse series, from the original 1968 disney world presentation. what a disappointment. the entire program focused on either sense of personal loss, or personal phobia's and insecurities. the sad music and songs played throughout reflect this depressing tone. i think of pooh (or tigger) and i get happy, not bummed out. this was clearly a mistake installment and should be ommitted... not just from your collection, but from even renting/watching....more info
  • I've never seen my daughter laugh so hard
    This movie is hilarious. Who ever wrote the story knows how to make a 4-year old laugh. My daughter never laughed so hard. There is humor thoughout the movie. I think Rabbit steals the show in this one. Entertaining for adults too. If you don't get a kick out of it yourself, you'll enjoy watching your child watch this movie!!! I wouldn't recommend it for younger children. There are some suggestions of monsters, shadows and the music that might be frightening to some children younger than 4. My daughter scares easily. She wanted me to watch it with her the first time, but she doesn't need me to watch it with her anymore....more info
  • Too scary for little kids
    I was really disappointed by this Pooh video, as I expected it to be (like most things Pooh) happy and gentle and appropriate for little kids. It's too scary for my daughter, who will be 3 next month. Pooh and friends embark on a scary adventure to Skull, and along the way, they are caught in scary caves, fall from crumbling stone bridges over high gorges, the lot. I didn't realize how big an effect it had on my kids till my daughter, who never has been afraid of the dark, suddenly began refusing to sleep alone in her room because she was afraid of "shadows." Come to find out, when Christopher Robin reappears at the end of the movie, you first see his big, scary shadow approaching. If you buy this for young kids, at the very least I suggest that you prescreen it before showing it to them....more info
  • Pooh At His Best
    This and THE TIGGER MOVIE are the two best Winnie The Pooh movies.

    Here we have POOH'S GRAND ADVENTURE: THE SEARCH FOR CHRISTOPHER ROBIN (UK title: Winnie The Pooh's Most Grand Adventure). The animation is definitely television standard, but the story and songs are of a very high quality indeed.

    This straight to video sequel picks up right where the original
    big screen film THE MANY ADVENTURES OF WINNIE THE POOH left off. Winnie The Pooh and Christopher Robin are hanging out together. They enjoy each other's company. They can do anything and nothing together as bestest friends. The next day Christopher Robin goes off to his first day at school. He leaves a note on Pooh's hunny pot so Pooh will know where he is. Unfortunately the hunny somehow falls on the note making the letters and words on the note hard to read- not that Pooh and the gang could read anyway. Due to this, Pooh and friends believe the word "school" says "skull" and that Christopher Robin has been kidnapped. Thus they begin a perilous journey across the Hundred Acre Wood.

    The message of this movie is made very clear for young and old alike. And I don't mean because it says it on the video packaging. It really resonates with all of us- at least it did with me. I remember it very well- "You're braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think".

    I hope you yourself, get to discover this little movie that is so much bigger than it seems....more info
  • It was adorable!
