Although I was a bit too old to be completely under the spell of Winnie the Pooh, I know that the children of my cousins and friends (and now their grandchildren) have fallen under the sway of A.A. Milne's world famous bear and it is for them that I chose to review the Winnie the Pooh: Seasons of Giving - 10 Anniversary Edition DVD Gift Set DVD.

From official release/information:

Three marvelous cold-weather stories from Disney's popular Pooh television series are combined into one video. A slight error in judgment has led the gang in the 100 Acre Wood into spring in Groundpiglet Day. Rabbit's rushing about defeats the true purpose of the holidays in A Winnie the Pooh Thanksgiving. Rabbit is also the center of Find Her, Keep Her when he adopts a wayward bird. Even though this is a new collection of cartoons, the 70-minute tape keeps closely to the spirit of the '60s Pooh classics (unlike previous Pooh cartoons). A new song from Disney songmasters the Sherman brothers is sung (along with their famous title number), and Paul Winchell returns as the unmistakable voice of Tigger. That's not the late Sterling Holloway voicing Pooh, but a remarkable impersonation by ace mimic Jim Cummings. (Ages 3 and up) -- Doug Thomas
