Winnie the Pooh and Christmas Too (1991) Review:

Winnie the Pooh is a Disney character that can not get a story wrong. His ability to make the audience giggle with joy over some of the silliest things is a powerful trait that some other characters don't seem to have enough of. The story of this short is quite simple. Pooh and his friends make a wishlist with Christopher Robin to send to Santa. After making up the list, Pooh realizes he didn't put in anything for himself.

Then on top of that, he notices that it's Christmas Eve once he starts adding his wish in. In a rush, he sends the letter on its way, only to have the winds change on him and the letter never sent. When he discovers this, he decides to take it into his own hands to personally deliver his friends their wanted gifts. He does this by dressing up as Santa and doing all kinds of goofy things.

Some of the gifts Pooh brings to his friends are also very funny. All of which the audience gets great reactions from Rabbit, Eeyore and Tigger. Not to mention that Piglet is his feeble solo reindeer. The musical score by Steve Nelson was cute and a good listening experience as well. Still can't give the special a full score because it is not an original feature. Plus it was only 25 minutes to boot.

It’s an adorable little holiday special for any Winnie the Pooh lover. Just don't expect a real in-depth story.
