A series of fan-videos that started to crop up on the Internet somewhere between the late 2000s and early 2010s. The exact origin of where it started is unknown; it could be linked to TonyDWA (who has no connection), but most people cited Brerdaniel to start it all. The premise of the series is very simplistic, you take a show/movie/game/e.t.c., and you would then insert various characters from other series so that it would appear to be as if they were interacting (mainly Winnie-the-Pooh, being the namesake and all). The Adventures videos also have plenty of spin-offs, of course, the only difference is whose name appears in the title (Thomas and Twilight Sparkle, Brian Griffin, e.t.c.) as the formula remains the same.

There have been many different creators that have their own Adventure series (although there is a lot of overlap between them). Such creators include Hiatt Gray, Maggie Girl Cartoons, Inc. Pictures (formerly known as Yakko Warner Films, not to be confused with the Animaniacs' Yakko Warner), Benny the Beast (but has since retired), and also PerkyGoth14; who's doing something similar, as well as throwing OCs into the mix, despite claims of not being influenced by the series. Most, if not all of Christopher Spielberg's works (especially his Garfield And The Equestria Girls Series) can be seen as similar to this, though the jury's out on whether they were influenced by the series or not.

The Wiki Rule applies here too. It can be seen here. There's also a spin-off series by MovieManMDG focusing on Ed, Edd n Eddy called The Ultimate Ed-Chronicles. No, really. It also has its own page.

And now, we present our tropes:

  • Abusive Parents: Benny's father, the King of some kingdom is apparently a tyrant who doesn't care for his son even after turning into a beast, and forced his wife and Queen to do domestic chores rather than using any servants.
  • Adaptational Heroism:
    • Panthy and Dagnino from El Arca play more heroic roles in stories made by LionKingHeart Fantasy Films, having redeemed themselves after the events of the movie.
    • Characters like Brian Griffin, who lives up to his reputation as a pretentious asshole and anti-heroic status, is presented in an almost completely heroic and selfless light here.
  • Back from the Dead:
    • Tends to happen a LOT. Characters may even come back with absolutely no explanation. Just to die again in a future adventure.

    • Not all villains die in a story. Sometimes they just flee when they find they're beaten.
    • Handwaved in some stories. In Simba, Timon, and Pumbaa's Adventures of Robin Hood, for example, Dr. Facilier explains that he was able to return to the living world by offering his "Friends On the Other Side" Simba's soul in exchange for his freedom.
  • Big-Bad Ensemble: Bowser (typically considered the true Big Bad), Ganondorf, The Fallen, Sunset Shimmer (an evil clone version), and Aku are considered the most dangerous and powerful villains Pooh and his friends have ever faced.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: Like the heroes, there are plenty of villains that would team up with varying degrees of evil. How they were able to co-operate with each other is anyone's guess.
  • Big Good: Varies between Optimus Prime, Princess Celestia and obviously, Winnie the Pooh himself.
  • Bowdlerise: Whenever there is one made of a mature film/show/game/etc, they censor any of the "inappropriate content."
  • Darker and Edgier: Hiatt Grey's works are especially dark compared to any other Pooh's Adventures stories. Light-hearted My Little Pony characters now own assault rifles among other things, the villains are much more evil, threatening and sadistic, characters from Family Guy and many other adult cartoons join in on adventures, and many characters are killed in pretty gruesome ways. The heroes are also put in life-threatening and dangerous situations. They even have some mild cursing ("damn" and "hell" particularity.)
  • Deconstruction Crossover: Winnie The Pooh meets The Toxic Avenger is a deconstruction of the series, showcasing the difficulties of featuring so many characters in a world not suited for them.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: For example, in this part of a cringe compilation, Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon are being, well, Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon. How do the Skarloey Railway Engines respond? Open fire on them on Duncan's command with machineguns, rifles and rocket launchers!
  • Earth-Shattering Kaboom: In part 10 of Winnie the Pooh Meets the Toxic Avenger, Arnold Schwarzenegger comes in from the toon-overrun future and kills Homer, using his corpse to hit the History Eraser Button, destroying the world and all the toons within it.
  • Everyone Is Related:
  • Expy: BennytheBeast is one to, well, Beast. The two even share a crossover where they go through similar storylines.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar:
    • Pooh's Adventures of Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School uses the song "Ms. New Booty" from Epic Movie, which sounds a little too suggestive for it.
    • Some female characters have been given "mature makeovers", making them have unusually big breasts to boot...and this includes underage girls.
    • An extreme case is that Hiatt Grey's works managed to get away with uncensored naked ladies.
  • Good Guns, Bad Guns: The villains in Hiatt Grey's works strictly use Imperial/Nazi German weaponry (most commonly the Luger P08 or a Walther P38, though there are some exceptions). While the heroes have weapons of various origins which are usually outdated or anachronistic depending on the scenario.
  • Gosh Darn It to Heck!: Any profanity is filtered to this, except in Hiatt Grey's videos and transcripts. Even references to the city of Christchurch, New Zealand become "Louisechurch".
  • "Groundhog Day" Loop: Heavily implied to be the case for Pooh's Adventures when it comes to different teams going through the same movie.
  • The Hero: Guess.
  • Hero Antagonist: Drell in Cherry's Adventures, he also seems to favor Atticus over Cherry, who he makes as his own personal Butt-Monkey until Atticus gets back at him for abusing Cherry.
  • Importation Expansion: These videos are mostly already-existing movies with "guest stars" edited into the footage every once in a while, and poorly at that. Often, these characters might steal lines of dialogue spoken by the actual film characters, if the line wasn't something that particular character would ever say, or even reworded to sound like something that they would've said if they were actually present.
  • Just Train Wrong: Whenever the Thomas And Friends locomotive characters are featured, they're able to grab, hold, and operate objects, sprout limbs, and go ANYWHERE without the use of rails.
  • Karma Houdini:
  • Knight of Cerebus: The level of vileness of a villain is Depending on the Writer, but Hiatt Grey's villains definitely qualify.
  • Laughably Evil: Most of the villains are this. Even to ones who are treated seriously within their own show, like Team Rocket.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: It can reach flat-out insane levels.
  • Loophole Abuse: The rules for what can be put on the PA wiki are very arbitrary and vague, so the intended G and PG content of the wiki dips into harder violence or partially censored sexuality now and again.
  • Massive Multiplayer Crossover: You won't believe how many works they've manage to cram into one package.
  • "Not Making This Up" Disclaimer: Anytime anyone reviews them or talks about them, this trope is usually quoted because the crossovers and situations in them are just that absurd.
  • Original Generation:
    • Leo, Benny, and Johnny, the Author Avatars of LionheartCaptain, Startanica, and LionKingRulezAgain, are this in their own spin-off series along with all other characters created by them. Unlike Pooh, Ash Ketchum, Twilight Sparkle, and Thomas the Tank Engine, they do not belong to any already-existing franchises and are instead original characters.
    • Several "spin-off" series' contain original characters (many who serve as the lead/s of their own adventure series').
  • Out of Focus: Ironically, Winnie the Pooh himself is hardly featured in some of the more large-scale projects in favor of Thomas the Tank Engine, MLP: FiM and Family Guy characters.
  • Overly Long Gag: Whenever the inserted characters introduce themselves, due to the aforementioned Loads and Loads of Characters.
  • Parental Abandonment: Cherry and Atticus were abandoned at an orphanage. Cherry found and reunited with her parents in Cherry Goes to Jurassic Park, and Atticus reunites with his family in Scamp and Atticus's Adventure.
  • Perky Goth: Cherry. Her creator's screen name is even "PerkyGoth14".
  • Pinball Protagonist: Pooh, Twilight Sparkle, Thomas the tank engine...just about anyone added in contributes nothing to the plot, other than reactions and lines. It's more glaring since some characters added can actually take out the villain, yet remain in the sidelines.
  • Show Within a Show: Many of Pooh's adventures are staged as plays that are performed by Pooh and the gang.
  • Self-Insert: There are some makers that would insert themselves into the picture.
  • Soundtrack Dissonance: One instance is where the Blue Fairy was singing a song, while Luke Skywalker was getting electrocuted by Palpatine. BlackBusterCritic's response proves to be a Crossing the Line Twice moment.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: The majority (if not all) of the members of the "Adventure Teams" that are deployed could qualify. The fact that many crossovers are called "Pooh's Adventures of [X]" or "Thomas and Twilight Sparkle's Adventures of [X]" make it seem like they're hijacking the film from the main protagonist.
  • Steam Never Dies: The trains, of course. They can appear in any time period without the need of rails, it seems.
  • Story-Breaker Team-Up: The videos run on this trope. The main character, Winnie-the-Pooh, crosses over with people like Batman, the Ghostbusters, the Gargoyles, and many others dipping into either a very high Super Weight (even for a stuffed animal) or the darkest part of town, or even both. Then there's the allies Pooh has, although not a lot of them could affect the plot, some do with just a few super powers.
  • Unholy Matrimony: Bowser is married to Mistress Nine, obviously making her Bowser Jr.'s mother.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight:
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: The videos tend to include a lot of characters during the theme song and character introduction scenes, only for a lot of them to have little to no screen-time later.
  • Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: A good chunk of moments become this. A good example is if Sora is in the crew, as he has proven to kick the collective asses of almost every major Disney villain, some on multiple occasions, yet doesn't do anything.
  • Villain Team-Up: Many stories often have villains from other franchises teaming up with those featured in certain movies to take down the heroes.
