* CluelessAesop: The Creator/DisneyChannel [[VerySpecialEpisode Special Presentation]], ''Franchise/WinnieThePooh: [[http://disney.wikia.com/wiki/Too_Smart_for_Strangers Too Smart for Strangers]]''. Seeing the residents of the Hundred Acre Wood dole out advice to the kiddies on how to avoid being kidnapped and molested is pretty questionable in itself, because Winnie the Pooh and his friends shouldn't be aware of stuff like that due to the innocence of their world and the fact that their leader is six years old. The fact [[TooSmartForStrangers its intended message]] has since been {{discredited|Trope}} because child safety experts have [[https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/crime/stranger-danger-lesson-does-more-harm-than-good-warns-charity-10280789.html largely dismissed it]] as overly simplistic, [[JustForFun/TelevisionIsTryingToKillUs dangerously naïve]] ParanoiaFuel with the potential to put children in more danger[[labelnote:why?]]the vast majority of victims of kidnapping and child abuse ''know and trust their victimizer'', rendering the very premise of Stranger Danger nonsensical; in addition, Stranger Danger lessons - albeit not this particular one - often fail to make exceptions for people who are blatantly trustworthy, which ''has'' caused lost children to avoid rescuers for fear of being kidnapped[[/labelnote]], leading to it being downplayed in favor of the more nuanced Tricky People, doesn't help one bit.
