It's tempting to award Disney's Winnie the Pooh a rave review based on all the things it doesn't offer. To wit, it's not in 3D, it doesn't have any large-scale action sequences and it was primarily animated by hand rather than on a computer. All of these omissions set it distinctly apart from virtually every other American-made cartoon feature released within the past five years.
It's been six years since Winnie the Pooh and his fellow fluff-stuffed residents of the Hundred Acre Wood's last feature film outing, Pooh's Heffalump Movie. That may seem like a fair amount of time, but there are other classic Disney characters that have been exiled from movie theaters for much longer. Consider this the start of a campaign to get them back on the big screen where they belong.
