Winnie the Pooh
Winnie the Pooh is the beloved character from A.A.

Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, The Tigger Movie, Piglet's Big Movie,
Pooh's Heffalump Movie, and Winnie the Pooh which will be released

Winnie the Pooh, House of Mouse, Welcome to Pooh Corner), and video
games (Tigger's Honey Hunt, Kingdom Hearts, Winnie the Pooh in the
Hundred Acre Wood).
Pooh lives in Hundred Acre Wood. The closest thing
to family he has are all of his friends (Christopher Robin, Eeyore,
Rabbit, Owl, Tigger, Piglet, and others). One of Pooh's favorite
things in life is honey! He is a very devoted and friendly bear.
Pooh has a simple outfit; he wears a short sleeve
red shirt and that is it. Two of his classic quotes are: "Think,
think, think!" and "Oh, Bother!" Winnie the Pooh has been around
since 1926, but has only been with Disney since 1961. Pooh also has
a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Winnie the Pooh has been voiced by three people:
Sterling Holloway was the original voice, Hal Smith then took over,
and after Smith passed Jim Cummings took over and is the current
Pooh Bear can be found in Disney Parks around the
world. He can be found as a meet and greet character and he is also
seen in The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh attraction, the UK
pavilion, and Disney Dreams Come True Parade.
