457. Winnie the Pooh and a Busy Day – Fyodor Khitruk

hqdefault

SUMMARY: Eeyore is sad because he has no tail so Winnie the Pooh goes to find him one.

WHY IT’S HERE: The final of Fyodor Khitruk’s Winnie the Pooh shorts, ‘Winnie the Pooh and a Busy Day’ introduces more of the characters familiar from A.A. Milne’s books. This time round we meet Eeyore and Owl, both of whom make nice additions to the series. However, the extended runtime of this part, which is almost double the length of its predecessors, does not do ‘Winnie the Pooh and a Busy Day’ any favours. While a twenty minute runtime worked very well for Disney’s gentle adaptations, eleven minutes seemed like the perfect length for the more energetic Russian equivalent. Still, the charm of the first two shorts is not lost and ‘Winnie the Pooh and a Busy Day’ makes a fine finale to this celebrated trilogy.
