"The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh," 1977 was composed of a series of featurettes Disney produced based upon the Winnie-the-Pooh books by A. A. Milne. Walt Disney wanted to introduce the public to the Pooh characters slowly over time and the released featurettes include, "Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree," 1966, "Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day." 1968, and "Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too," 1974. For the full length film in 1977, extra material was added and used to link the three featurettes together. A fourth, shorter featurette was added at the end of the film and was based on the final chapter of "The House at Pooh Corner."


Wolfgang Reitherman began working for Walt Disney in 1934, along with future Disney legends Ward Kimball and Milt Kahl. The three worked together on a number of early classic Disney shorts and Reitherman worked on Disney feature films produced from 1937 to 1981, including "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" (animating the Slave in the Magic Mirror) up to "The Fox and the Hound," where he served as the co-producer for the film. Beginning with 1961's "One Hundred and One Dalmatians," "Woolie" (as he was called by friends) served as Disney's chief animation director.


One of Reitherman's productions, the 1968 short "Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day," won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film. In addition, all three of Reitherman's sons — Bruce, Richard, and Robert provided voices for Disney characters. Bruce Reitherman was the voice for Christopher Robin in "Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree."


Winnie The Pooh was animated by veteran Walt Disney animators Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston and was voiced by Sterling Holloway. Halloway had a long and distinguished career with Disney and not only provided the voice for Winnie The Pooh, but the Cheshire Cat from "Alice In Wonderland," Kaa from "The Jungle Book," Roquefort from "The Aristocats," and many more characters!


Tigger is one of the most loved characters in the Walt Disney pantheon! It is practically impossible to find anyone who does not love him. In the case of the Pooh stories, there were no real Villains; the closest thing would be Rabbit, who was the main antagonist. However, Tigger was simply fun loving and without question had some the best lines such as "The name's Tigger! T-I-double-guh-ER! That spells Tigger!" Tigger also has one of the best songs, "The Wonderful Thing about Tiggers."


Tigger was animated by one of the greatest Disney animators ever, Milt Kahl and voiced by Paul Winchell. Winchell was a ventriloquist, actor, and comedian who would later provide the voice of Gargamel and Dick Dastardly. Winchell appeared in acting roles on numerous TV shows from the 1950's on through the 1970's. What many people do not know is that Paul Winchell, who had some medical training and was also an inventor; became the first person to build and patent a mechanical artificial heart which was implantable in the chest cavity. He was also honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for all of his work in television.


"Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day," 1968 is a film that combined live-action and hand painted cel animation. It was released by The Walt Disney Company, directed by Wolfgang Reitherman, and was based on the third, fifth, ninth, and tenth chapters of the book "Winnie-the-Pooh" by A. A. Milne. The film won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film in 1968. Music and lyrics were written by the Sherman Brothers (Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman); with background music provided by Buddy Baker. Sterling Holloway provided the voice of Winnie The Pooh and Ralph Wright was the voice of Eeyore.


This is a spectacular cel of both a bouncy Tigger and Winnie The Pooh. Pooh had been kept awake by wind and strange sounds outside his house and opens his door, still in his night shirt and sleeping cap, to find Tigger. This is Tigger's first appearance on film and both characters are full figure. The cel occurs after Tigger bounces Pooh for the very first time and the diaolgue it below:


"Who are you?" - Tigger

"I'm Pooh." - Pooh

"Oh, Pooh, sure. What's a Pooh?" - Tigger

"You're sitting on one." - Pooh

"I am? Oh, well, glad to meet you! I'm new around here name's Tigger. T I double Ga eR. That spells Tigger." - Tigger


This is hands down the finest original cel of Pooh and Tigger I have ever offered for sale, an absolutely beautiful piece of animation art, and is perfect for any collection!
