Hilarious, imaginative and wonderfully surreal
10 November 2016 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

As a fan of Winnie the Pooh, 'The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh' was always one of my favourite shows as a child. Not all childhood favourites have held up, but 'The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh' is one of the strongest examples of those that have.

While the original three 60s-70s short films ('Honey Tree', 'Blustery Day' and 'Tigger Too') and the 1977 'The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh' are just a little better, 'The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh' is one of the Winnie the Pooh franchise's high points. 'The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh' is, as said a few times already, a rare example of a show with not a bad episode for the whole four seasons it ran, and has something for kids and adults alike.

"Sorry Wrong Slusher" is along with "Pooh Skies" and "Cleanliness is Next to Impossible" one of the most imaginative episodes of 'The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh', and it's also one of the most surreal along with "Pooh Skies" and one exchange in particular is one of the show's funniest ever moments.

The animation is very bright, well drawn and colourful, everything looking lush, detailed and smooth, with some nice darker visuals in many of the outside and more surreal scenes and some inventive ones in the gang's attempts to trap the slusher and badly failing. In addition to that, the music is playfully jaunty and beautifully orchestrated, enhancing scarier moments with haunting urgency, sadder moments with poignant and particularly lush and emotional scoring, whimsical parts with an energy but also pathos and the more playful moments with a jaunty touch. The theme tune is very rousing and one of the catchiest theme songs of any animated show of the late 80s.

Writing has a perfect mix of whimsy, drollness, wit, charm and childhood innocence, while the story is enormously entertaining with an imaginatively weird atmosphere that really stands out in the show without being in a bad way.

Highlights in the writing include their attempt to trap the slusher, ordering a pizza by telephone, some of Tigger's lines regarding what the slusher might do resulting in repeated reprimands by Christopher Robin for scaring the rest of the gang, the ending and especially the exchange in the police station with the gang shifting the blame and providing alibis.

Love the characters and their chemistry, as well as the gang's loyalty to Christopher Robin, while the voice acting particularly Jim Cummings and Peter Cullen is excellent all round.

Overall, hilarious, imaginative and wonderfully surreal, one of my favourites from Season 4. 10/10 Bethany Cox
