Winnie the Pooh,A Valentine For You : Bitten By A Smitten!

Happy Valentine’s Day Listeners!

Unless you hate Valentine’s Day. Then Happy Regular-Ol’-Run-Of-The-Mill-Day-In-February.

This week Aly and Sarrah are celebrating by eating candy and watching 1999’s Disney TV Special Winnie the Pooh: A Valentine For You.

Yes, we’re time traveling again. Yes, it’s a TV Special. It’s a Holiday Special, get over it.

Aly kicks us off by doing a Voice Actor Spotlight! Since this film was the last time Paul Winchell voiced our favorite bouncing buddy Tigger, she thought it was fitting to give us a run-down on this amazing ventriloquist turned voice actor. We also mention Paul’s daughter April Winchell, who has lent her voice to some more recent Disney Television characters.

Sarrah gives us a run-down of what the other, international Disney Studios have been up to, leading to a discussion on Disney’s animated TV shows that was so involved, we extended it into an In-Betweener!

Our walk-through has us discussing our Valentine’s memories, noticing that Rabbit seems to have gone to therapy, and wondering why Gopher got such a big part.

So stuff your face with all that discount Valentine’s Day candy, and let’s travel back to the Hundred Acre Wood for a LOVE-ly episode.
