The Super Sleuths solve problems by looking at clues. Rabbit teaches the group how to use a pulley, which provides more pulling power when used properly.

Can-do spirit among friends allows for the Super Sleuths to solve problems.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Darby is a strong female character, who leads her group with aplomb. Roo and Lumpy's moms are very caring mothers who read stories to their kids and worry when they are lost.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that there is a blend of fact and fantasy in this movie, which might confuse the youngest viewers. Nothing harmful, except that shooting stars might be equated with super powers and magical vegetables for tiny fans.

What's the story?

This feature-length DVD is based on the My Friends Tigger and Pooh TV series, which features a female character named Darby (voiced by Chloe Grace Moretz). In this adventure, the team of Super Sleuths notices a shooting star come to Earth in the night. The next morning, Rabbit (Ken Sansom) is astounded to find that his vegetable garden has grown gigantic. When Pooh, Tigger (Jim Cummings), and Darby come to the rescue, they discover that eating the yummy giant vegetables gives them super powers. Now they become Super Duper Super Sleuths, and can help their friends by using their new-found super talents.

Is it any good?

There's something compelling about the contrast of old-school Pooh -- he still says "oh, bother" -- and his enthusiastic new friend Darby. She is a problem solver, a motivator, a girl with a can-do attitude. She can tolerate Tigger's bigger-than-life personality, while exuding care and love for her friends. In this movie, the crew gets a super boost from an otherworldly source. When they find that they can fly, or lift giant boulders, or see for miles, they revel in their new gifts. Yet, when the super powers fade away, they accept the fact with grace and rely on "thinking" once more. This is a healthy treat for younger viewers.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about how vegetables contribute to our health and well-being. Tigger eats the giant spinach and becomes very strong. Pooh's consumption of a carrot lends him super eyesight. Which vegetables do you like to eat, and what do you think they do for you?

  • Here are nice examples of eating healthy foods, which Tigger and Pooh call "delicious." Are foods you like or that you see advertised always good for you? How do you know?
