* In ''Springtime For Roo'', the narrator presents Rabbit with a BadFuture where his ControlFreak antics have become so unbearable that the other animals have left and the Hundred Acre Wood is nothing but a barren dying woodland. But keep in mind the Hundred Acre Wood is meant to be an imaginary play world made by Christopher Robin. In other words, one of his imaginary friends has become such an overbearing part of his psyche that [[SanitySlippage every other element of his mind has withered and been forgotten]].

** It could also mean that Christopher Robin has created a new imaginary play world to which the other animals have moved, and this woodland on the brink of its imminent demise is what happens to an imaginary play world when there is no longer anyone imagining it.


* In TheNewAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh episode "Monkey See, Monkey Do Better", the group meets a giant wind-up gorilla GaryStu named Bruno. After he misunderstands Christopher Robin telling his friends he isn't keeping him (he had meant to say he was a gift for a friend), Bruno goes to be in the woods by himself...and then sadly declares he needs to "unwind" and pulls out his wind-up key. He gets better when the main cast finds him and puts the key back in, but ''we just saw a heartbroken toy commit'' '''''suicide!'''''

* In TheNewAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh, a common antagonist is a flock of crows. Most of the time they are shown as goofy-looking crows with Frank Welker's voice. Cut to the episode ''A Very, Very Large Animal'', where the crows are now larger, more menacing, and have Jim Cummings' voice. Now one may pass this off as them being two different flocks. But it is entirely possible that since this is a Piglet-centered episode, we are seeing them through his eyes, where they appear to be brutes, where as other characters see them as the goofballs they are shown as in the rest of the series.

* There's a good reason why Eeyore is depressed: he's the only one of the original set of characters that doesn't have hands, which inhibits his quality of life to a greater degree than the other characters. Many of his recurring problems (i.e. finding a tail, setting up appropriate housing) would be much more manageable if he had hands of his own to work with.

* The newer Pooh projects seem to cause a blotch in continuity, many of them depict Kanga and Roo being the last members of the group to move to the Hundred Acre Wood with Tigger witnessing it. But in the original film, Kanga and Roo appeared first in ''The Honey Tree'', then in ''Blustery Day'', Tigger introduced himself to Pooh.... then he introduces himself to Pooh ''again''. And to Rabbit ''again'' in ''Tigger Too''. And Pooh ''another time'' in ''The Tigger Movie''. Also given no dialogue from Pooh in ''Blustery Day'' actually specifies he's never met Tigger before, it's possible that this is just one of many, many cases Tigger made a redundant fanfare for himself, with him merely being an AbsenteeActor in ''The Honey Tree''.

** I'm not kidding here, but in an educational video for Winnie the Pooh's ABCs, the whole sign is there, and it reads Trespassers Will [[spoiler: Be Eaten"]]. Look at this video, around 1:09 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OnxhqL1f9hg

* Why is Eeyore always so down and depressed? Part of it may have to do with the fact he's the only quadruped animal in a forest primarily filled with bipedal animals. He can't use his hands/front feet the way they can, so he's far more limited in what he can do in comparison to them.


* In the 2011 film, it may seem a bit odd that [[spoiler:a piece of rope]] would be laying around the Backson trap just as they gang would need it most. What would it be doing there in the first place? But then you remember, Piglet dug the hole in the first place with Pooh 'supervising', and he would need it to get out when he was done. They just forgot to take it with them when they were finished setting the trap.
* In Pooh'sGrandAdventure, Kanga, Roo, Gopher, are notably absent. But considering the fact that 1). Roo is a young child and Kanga would not want him going on such a dangerous expedition, and 2). Pooh and the gang were not provided the opportunity to ask Kanga and Gopher for help due to Owl rushing them out the door, there was no time for the gang to go out of their way to seek aid from the others when they were in such a hurry to find Christopher Robin.

* MyFriendsTiggerAndPooh came out around the same time that news reports were talking about renewed tension between Disney and the books' copyright holders. Introducing Darby as a replacement for Christopher Robin may have been Disney giving themselves a possible out if they lost the rights to the Hundred Acre Wood--keep Darby, and give her a new batch of animal friends to have adventures with.
