Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (20 ):
Kids say (12 ):

Although these are supposed to be the "new" adventures, the lessons are just as classic and time-tested as the characters. Kids will be drawn to these characters because their personalities are so distinct: Pooh (voiced by Jim Cummings) is still simple and loves "hunny"; Eeyore (Peter Cullen) is still charming in a self-effacing sort of way; Rabbit (Ken Sansom) is still a little stand-offish and impatient.

The only hints at newness occasionally appear in the dialogue. For example, in one episode Tigger (Paul Winchell) remarked to viewers that he thought another animal was "one taco short of a combination plate." These touches probably make the show a little more relatable to today's generation, but the messages -- such as the importance of friendship, sharing, and believing in yourself -- will always hold up.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
