* GenreKiller: While a modest success, breaking even on a $30 million budget, it was nowhere the runaway success that their recent CGI features had been and, along with ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'', saw Disney's attempts to alternate between 2D and 3D with each feature flounder. Glen Keane, one of the studio's star animators, left shortly thereafter, closing off the studio's pipeline for good. John Lasseter, once a fierce advocate for keeping 2D alive in the age of CGI, has since announced that the "every other movie is 2D" plan has been dropped and that, as of this writing, there are no more 2D features planned. [[HopeSpot For now]].

* AcclaimedFlop: While the "flop" part is downplayed as it did at least make a little over its budget back it didn't make anywhere near what Disney's other animated films were making at the time, no thanks in part to being released during the incredibly busy month of July 2011. However, critically the film was widely praised, with Rotten Tomatoes scoring it at an impressive 90%; the only "Disney Revival" films that scored equal or higher being ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'' and ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}''.

* ShoutOut: In ''LightNovel/AnotherNote'', Mello compares the way in which Rue eats jam to Winnie the Pooh...then immediately contrasts the two, saying that Pooh is adorable, and Rue is just gross and creepy.

* HeyItsThatVoice
** Tigger is voiced by [[WackyRaces Dick Dastardly]] and [[TheSmurfs Gargamel]] early on.
** Later [[Creator/JimCummings he and Pooh]] are voiced by [[Disney/TheJungleBook Kaa]], [[WesternAnimation/TaleSpin Don Karnage]] and [[WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM Dr Robotnik]]. Enjoy.
*** In Denmark, it's Piglet who's Don Karnage.
** [[Creator/PeterCullen Eeyore]] is voiced by [[TheTransformers Optimus Prime]].
** In Japan, it's [[Creator/TesshoGenda Tigger]] who's Optimus Prime there.
*** In the 2011 film, he's voiced by [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory3 Chuckles the Clown]], [[WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles Rick Dicker]], and [[PixarShorts the Jackalope.]]
** {{Ka|thSoucie}}nga is voiced by [[WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM Princess Sally Acorn]] and [[WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}} Phil and Lil]] in most early 200 projects.
*** And the one from Many Adventures is voiced by [[Disney/{{Sleeping Beauty}} Merryweather]] and [[Disney/{{Lady and the Tramp}} Lady]].
** The 2011 film has Rabbit [[TomKenny voiced by]] WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants and Owl voiced by [[WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon Gobber]].
*** However, in Germany, Santiago Ziesmer (Spongebob's actor) has been ''Piglet'' since '88.
** In those old shorts... Hey, wasn't Creator/RonHoward's brother the original voice of Roo?
** In Brazil, Kanga has been [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Marge Simpson]] ever since the first "Pooh" shorts premiered there in the 1970s.
** ''[[Franchise/{{Scream}} Ghostface]]'' provides the jolly narration of ''Book Of Pooh''!



* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Darby is [[Film/KickAss Hit Girl.]] In hindsight, that's pretty disturbing.
** Creator/MarkHamill is the voice of Turtle, a new character.

* CreatorBacklash: A.A. Milne grew to loathe his Winnie-the-Pooh books as it typecasted him forever as a "writer of children's books", and he could never go back to writing adult fiction. He even tried to kill off Pooh at the end of the second book. (Of course, it didn't work.) E.H. Shepard, Pooh's illustrator, also suffered from this as it overshadowed his work in political cartoons. Similarly, Milne's son, Christopher Robin, grew to hate the works as well for he was bullied constantly for being immortalized in them.

!!!''Welcome to Pooh Corner'':
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: There has yet to be any official complete DVD release or digital release from Disney. The only home media that exists for the series are a handful of out-of-print VHS compilations from the 80s and an educational DVD licensed by Disney that contains only two episodes, "Pooh's Great School Bus Adventure" and "Too Smart for Strangers."
* TalkingToHimself:
** Hal Smith voices both Pooh and Owl.
** Will Ryan voices both Tigger and Rabbit.

* TheMerch: Throughout the years, Pooh has been placed on numerous features and had his face slapped nearly every possible form of toys and merchandise. That said the majority of it is at least considered better handled than Disney's [[{{Sequelitis}} usual attempts at rehashing a success]].
