Bottom of the barrel of Winnie the Pooh media

Our 4 year old has Winnie the Pooh fever. We burned through all of the movies pretty quickly and checked out this series to add some variety. Big mistake. This show is not the quiet, curious storytelling you would expect. Like any other Saturday morning cartoon from the mid-80s, it's frantic, cynical, and has aged like stale bread. Just in the first episode, there is a scene in which rabbit forces two other characters to kiss. So messed up. We made it three episodes in and that's it. I can't believe this is still available for streaming.

Not appropriate

I generally trust Common Sense Media 100%, and I fondly remembered watching this as a kid, but was shocked they felt this appropriate for ages 3+. I started watching Episode 7 ("The Great Honey Pot Robbery") with my 3 year old son and by about halfway in there was (i) frightening animals hiding under beds, (ii) a fight involving throwing the main characters at trees, and (iii) Winnie the Pooh brandishing a rifle. Completely unacceptable for a 3-4 year old today.
