My twin sons are in the 4th grade and only recently finished reading ‘Winnie-the-Pooh’ as part of their curriculum, the exact age I was when giving it a first read, which is why we decided to give ‘The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh’ another viewing over the weekend. That one came out in 1977. It was an anthology collection of the various Pooh shorts produced over the decade, the first of which included ‘Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree’, and OMG, how much I missed, analytically. I went back in and cleaned up my first analysis. Mostly though, it remained the same. Assuming you’ve read thus far, then you’ll know I rightly judged Pooh’s failed attempt at nabbing honey from the tree when describing him as an undisciplined neophyte. The original ‘Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree’ movie doesn’t end there. It continues on.

The next segment has Pooh barging in on Rabbit, asking for honey, and we all know what happens. Check out the original movie poster. It depicts Pooh as getting stuck in a tree rather than a hole in the ground, emphasizing the importance of trees and the duir, not overlooking their relationship with portals. The hole in the ground though. That too can be seen as a portal, or quite contrarily, the very rabbit hole which Alice fell down, thereby being dislocated from herself in her former reality.  It’s so obvious, I’d have to be blind not to see it. Why was I so impervious to it before? Before I tell you what it is, recall the scene.
