448. Winnie-the-Pooh Goes on a Visit – Fyodor Khitruk

SUMMARY: Winnie the Pooh visits his friend Rabbit, where he overindulges on honey.

WHY IT’S HERE: Fyodor Khitruk’s second Winnie the Pooh short tells the same tale as the second half of Disney’s ‘Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree’ but with a completely different approach. Khitruk sticks closely to the characters he introduced in his first Pooh short, giving the story a greater surreal energy and forward drive. While Disney tapped into a child’s imagination for their shorts, Khitruk has tapped into how that imagination would be represented if drawn, animated and voiced by the child itself. Anarchic energy elbows out wistful sentimentality to create an unforgettably funny and captivatingly vibrant short.
