Pooh and friends try to rescue Santa’s trainee reindeer, Holly. Starring Dee Bradley Baker, Mikaila Baumel, and Kimberlea Berg.
This film was made for kids, and it’s an extended episode of the series, My Friends Tigger and Pooh. The animation is more computer animation rather than the older style of the Pooh series. The series is geared more toward preschool children with the added character of Darby (instead of Christopher Robin). She takes over the show rather than allowing us to enjoy the friendship of the Pooh characters. Some of the voice acting really doesn’t do the original characters justice. I especially didn’t enjoy Travis Oates’ voice for Piglet; it’s too deep and raspy for a cute little piglet. Roo sounds tired, and then you have the songs, which weren’t really a part of the original Pooh series. They just don’t fit into the story at all and distract from it. While it’s cute for preschoolers, it’s not the best and one that I wouldn’t recommend as a yearly watch, making it not worth the watch.
