Also, at the end of the song, when Rabbit gives a sleeping Pooh the map as a blanket. From himit is moving to tears. It's extremely subtle, but the small friendship between Eeyore and Piglet.
It's quite heartwarming to see Piglet walking and holding onto Eeyore's tail, and then the two huddled together while they sleep. The gang overcoming their various flaws in order to get to Christopher Robin, all in the name of Pooh, who at this point they think is dead. The utter dedication they all have to each other in their Darkest Hourwhether they were Vitriolic Best Buds like Tigger and Rabbit or somewhat distant friends like Eeyore and Rabbit, is heartwarming.
Especially when the gang helps Rabbit up after he nearly falls into an abyss in Skull or when the others pull Eeyore up to the Eye of Skull. When Pooh gets trapped all alone in the cave, simply remembering Christopher Robin's voice is enough to cheer him up.
Once he'd been trapped, he immediately tries to escape so he can try to help his friends. We find out in the end that the sounds of the "Skullasaurus" were actually Pooh's stomach rumbling due to having eaten any honey since he had last seen Christopher Robin. Throughout the entire adventure Pooh had the pot Christopher Robin had left him but he refused to eat it because all Pooh could think about was finding him and the honey pot was the only thing he had to remember him.
The fact that Winnie the Pooh who normally only thinks about satisfying his bottomless appetite for Honey was able to completely, if subconsciously, ignore his hunger for nearly two days straight speaks volume as to how heart-set he was in finding his best friend.
Once the other four are reunited in the crystal caverns of Skull, Piglet happily exclaims his friends' names, delighted to be reunited with them. The group reuniting with Christopher Robin, believing they've succeeding in finding and saving their friend after overcoming their vices. Christopher Robin also pets Eeyore's head. That's basically the entire thrust of "Pooh's Grand Adventure": There are reviews of "Pooh's Grand Adventure" floating around out there, and some of them take it to task.
Entertainment Weekly'spublished at the time of its release, is almost amusingly harsh: Sad, but not terrifying. Disney "Pooh's Grand Adventure" is on Netflix, so I decided watch and see if the tone's really as the negative reviews make out — and to see if I could figure why exactly the cave scene towards the movie's end wigged me out so much. While I agree it veers a little dark for Pooh, I don't intend to add to the garbage heap of nostalgia-blogs that propose "when you watch it again, you realize [insert kids movie here] was really fucked up!
For a direct-to-video release, "Pooh's Grand Adventure" boasts some nice animation, great voice acting and catchy songs while keeping the "creepy" dial tuned to "Scooby-Doo" levels at worst. Honestly, rewatching it made me wonder if we didn't appreciate Disney's home-release 2D animated features when we had them, not knowing that a generation later kids would be glued to bizarre YouTube videos of Elsa from "Frozen" and Spider-Man.
As for the crystal cave sequence in particular?
It doesn't feel half as long or as hopeless as I remembered it. It's a teeny bit claustrophobia-inducing at points, and maybe the choice to have Tigger, Piglet, Rabbit and Eeyore convinced that Pooh's dead yup for a solid five minutes is a tad too much, but the "eureka" moment revealing the movie's grip on my psyche never came.
I called up my friend Paulina, a life-long Winnie the Pooh fan 1to see if she remembered the movie and if it ever left a similar impression.
Evidently, being much better-adjusted than I am, she remembered "Pooh's Grand Adventure" but never gave it, or any other piece of children's media, a second thought as being particularly frightening. Eh, I've seen worse. Disney Perhaps I was just an easily-spooked baby, and my present-day aversion to proper horror movies backs that theory up.
