Pooh's Heffalump Movie
This latest Pooh adventure starts with the discovery of large, mysterious footprints in the Hundred Acre Wood. Little Roo bravely suggestions that Pooh and the rest of the gang venture into the "dangerous" Heffalump Hollow to go in search of the feared heffalumps, who are believed to be the beasts who made the large footprints. Along the way, Roo bonds with a young Heffalump named Lumpy. Lumpy, who looks like a lavender elephant from the dream sequence in "Dumbo" and who speaks with an English accent, turns out to be a fun guy to hang out with. He proves especially skillful in shooting things like watermelon seeds and carrots out of his trunk. Although the songs may not be memorable, the movie is filled with pleasant ones that help establish the peaceful mood. Once again Jim Cummings does a fine imitation of the late Sterling Holloway (as Pooh) and Paul Winchell (as Tigger), while Ken Sansom is equally good as Rabbit and John Fiedler is the voice of Piglet. Adults may not laugh a lot, but they'll be smiling the whole time and, the youngsters will be thoroughly entertained by this vibrantly colorful comedy-with-music.
