YMMV / Pooh's Adventures

Go To

  • Archive Panic: There are hundreds of videos, mostly taken down due to copyright infringement, and even more scripts, posters, down to just lengthy wishlists of casts with brief summaries at best.
  • Ass Pull: Most of their stand-alone "movies" end like this.
  • Bile Fascination: For the ironic fanbase.
  • Canon Defilement: Some adventures will have some antagonists still serving for the villains when in canon have already pulled their Heel–Face Turn before or even after the fact.

  • Creator's Pet: Brian Griffin and really all Family Guy characters are this to Hiatt Grey.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: Bound to crop up. For example, the Good Fairy singing in Pooh's Adventures of Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi while Luke is being electrocuted.
  • Crossover/Crack Pairing: Quite a few exist, Thomas the Tank Engine and Twilight Sparkle being the most prominent.
  • Continuity Snarl: Whenever they try to have continuity, like in The Ultimate Ed-Chronicles, this ends up happening.
  • Designated Hero:
    • Characters like Peter Griffin and Glenn Quagmire are part of the heroes despite what they're known for in their show.
    • Sometimes the heroes may do morally ambiguous things, even murder in Hiatt Grey's works. One such example has a scene where Twilight Sparkle murders a disarmed and surrendering Trixie and Sunset Shimmer instead of actually accepting them. Can you say "war crime"?

    • This scene among a compilation has some of the heroes open fire on Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon with machine guns, rifles and a rocket launcher. Bullies or not, harming or threatening a child is hardly heroic.
  • Designated Villain: Any antagonists that aren't as villainous or evil in their respective series will be immediately paired with the more nastier villains. For example, the Team Rocket Trio working for the Nazi Party.
  • Draco in Leather Pants: Villains sometimes get this treatment in Adventures stories. For example, in the ''Cherry's Adventures'' series, Forte ends up falling in love with the titular Perky Goth, after surviving his canon death and living on into the 21st century due to being a vampire in this continuity.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse:
    • For some reason, Darla Dimple is very popular in Cherry's Adventures created by PerkyGoth14 and many reviews are about how fans want her involved in more stories and she is usually given a lot of sympathy, possibly due to her backstory and adoption by Atticus's family.

    • Brian Griffin went from a generic background character that was there simply to fill up a team, to leading his own adventure team in a matter of months. He's even started to appear in other works.
  • First Installment Wins: The crossovers created by TonyWDA (who has no connection with the Pooh's Adventures League) were well done and the clips used were relevant to the scenario.
  • Fridge Logic: Oh so much. Like how the trains are able to move around freely without railways, or how and why they use weapons sized for humans, or how they fit on boats or in buildings. Or how a character can have so many cousins that span across dimensions. Or why most cast members just stand around waiting for events to transpire rather than acting.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: These crossovers aren't the only ones Tom and Jerry have been (poorly) spliced into: in 2010, an official crossover between Tom and Jerry and Sherlock Holmes was released, and was noted as startlingly similar to Pooh's Adventures. They later tried this shtick with The Wizard of Oz and Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory in 2011 and 2017, respectively.
  • Older Than They Think: 4Kids Entertainment have produced a TV special called The Fight for the Fox Box by splicing reused footage together back in 2003. However they had more resources and their voice actors to work with so it had more cohesion.
  • Padding: What many of the added clips and reactions amounted to. Which can turn a 22-minute episode of a show to almost an hour long, or turn a ninety minute movie into two and an half hours or more.
  • Snark Bait: Like you wouldn't believe.
  • So Bad, It's Good: Depending on who you ask. On one hand, the editing is poor and the added characters contribute nothing to the plot. On the other hand, because it is so convoluted, it can come off as horribly hilarious. BennytheBeast's contributions are worth noting since there had been a lot of effort put into his videos, which actually shows.
  • Special Effects Failure: Granted, these videos were made with Windows Movie Maker, so they may look unprofessional. However it is still jarring to have characters suddenly muted, then to slap some text on the bottom to make it look like they're having a conversation. Or to have an image of a firearm poorly spliced onto a train.
  • Squick: Often shows up. In milder cases, a pony is in love with a train. In stranger cases, movies are jarringly stripped of swear words rather than applying a Narrative Profanity Filter. In even stranger cases, R-rated softcore porn is crudely edited down to try and fit in with G-rated chicanery. In the most unsettling, young girls get exaggerated breasts.
  • What Do You Mean, "It's for Kids"?:
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: The scene in Pooh's Adventures of Happy Days where Jetta falls in love with Little Godzilla.

How well does it match the trope?
