Winnie Puuh und I-Aahs Geburtstag (1983) Online

Eeyore is gloomy, like always, but more so now. His birthday is right around the corner and everybody has forgotten. It didn't cheer him up any when Tigger "accidentally" knocks Eeyore into the river. Pooh invents a new game, "Pooh Sticks", and everyone contributes to Eeyore's party, there's flat balloons, storage honey pots with Owl's hand writing on them, and a game of Pooh Sticks which Tigger claims he likes, but immediately hates it because he lost. It turns out to be a happy birthday celebration after all. {locallinks-homepage}

The theatrical release of this film in the USA was as part of the reissue of The Sword in the Stone (1963).

The fourth and final Pooh featurette.

The first Disney film animated by an outside animation studio since 1938's "Merbabies" which was animated by Harman and Ising at MGM during production of "Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs" (1937)

The only Pooh film to not feature the original vocals for the original Winnie The Pooh theme song at any part of the film.

This featurette features a completely overdubbed version of the famous opening sequence. The music and the famous title music were re-recorded at a different key to match up with the rest of the music score in the cartoon, the cuckoo clock sound was replaced, and Laurie Main does the opening narration instead of Sebastian Cabot.

This featurette appears as clips in "A Poem Is..." short "In The Fashion".

Ron Clements had his story credit taken off the film as a protest of Disney's decision to outsource the animation to another studio rather than having it done in-house.

With the death of Sebastian Cabot in 1977, the voice of the Narrator is now taken by Laurie Main. Likewise the deaths of Junius Matthews (Rabbit) and Barbara Luddy (Kanga) necessitated recasting of their voices.

User reviews



This is a classic video that everyone should own. It shows true friendship when the friends make effort to make Eeyore's birthday cheerful. It is a great edition to the Pooh series. The animation is good, the voices are great, the illustrations and color are nice, and the story is entertaining and enjoyable. This video is based on two ideas from the original books by A.A Milne. It is based on a part where Pooh invents a game, and where Eeyore has a party. Out of the four Pooh movies,two, The Honey Tree, and Blustery Day are better than this. One, Tigger too, is not as good, but only by a little bit. This video is so much fun, that adults and kids will watch this over and over. It is great.


This is the last of the four Winnie the Pooh featurettes. It's not as good as the first three, but it is still enjoyable. One reason I'll tell you why it it not as good as the others is because almost the whole cast is different. But John Fiedler and Paul Winchell still gave their original voices to Piglet and Tigger which is a good thing. This film really focuses on Eeyore by the way. The music is really good too, and it really sets to the tone of Eeyore. So if you haven't seen this or the others yet, you're in for a treat. So please watch it for me and tell us how you like it.

P.S. Try playing Pooh-sticks yourself.


I do think out of the four Winnie the Pooh vignettes this is my least favourite, but it is fun to watch. It isn't as funny as the other three, though Tigger is still very funny, and the narrator just lacks the thoughtfulness of Sebastian Cabot.

That said, it is well animated, the voice acting especially from Paul Winchell and John Fiedler are without fault, and it is still very charming, and has a good story that just about engages the young audience.

The music is not so bad either, and the Pooh Sticks scene was inspired.

All in all, not the best our favourite bear has to offer, but worth watching. 8/10 Bethany Cox


Kids will love this Winnie the Pooh story about friendship. I must say I was entertained as well. Pooh is not the smartest bear in the world and Eeyore who is not the fastest donkey in the world made me even laugh a couple of times.

'Winnie the Pooh and a Day for Eeyore' is an animated short movie for the whole family to enjoy!


This forth installment in Disney's Winnie the Pooh series of short is in many ways the most endearing and rewarding of the four. The story revolves around Eyeore's forgotten birthday and Pooh and friends' attempts to make amends. It rings true in its themes of isolation, desiring and achieving companionship, and true friendship.

Thankfully, this short is available in the supplemental material on the DVD (2002 release, Region 1) edition of `The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh'. If you have this DVD, don't pass over this delightful extra.


"Winnie the Pooh and a Day for Eeyore" isn't as good as the 3 earlier shorts but it's still likable.

The picture quality of this short is slightly inferior comparing to the earlier ones and that is part of the reason why it isn't as good.

Another reason is because most of the cast is different. Unfortunately we have no longer Sebastian Cabot, Junius Matthews, Barbara Luddy and Sterling Holloway. On the other hand, luckily we still have Ralph Wright, Paul Winchell, John Fiedler and Hal Smith in this short - and that's a good sign. Jim Cummings does a decent job as the voice of Winnie the Pooh, but Sterling Holloway was better.

This short is mostly dedicated to the gloomy donkey Eeyore.

However, he is feeling more miserable than ever for two reasons. First, because Tigger bounced him and accidentally threw him into a river. And second, because it's his birthday and nobody remembered that, which causes Eeyore to believe that nobody cares about him.

In a try to help Eeyore getting off the river, Winnie the Pooh accidentally throws a rock to his belly, nearly causing poor Eeyore to drown.

When Pooh finally finds out that today is Eeyore's birthday, he decides to give him a jar of honey as a present, while Piglet decides to give him a balloon. But accidentally Pooh eats the honey and Piglet breaks the balloon after falling.

Surprisingly, Eeyore enjoys the empty jar and the broken balloon. Another surprise is that Eeyore smiles. We never see him smiling.

In the meantime, Cristopher Robin returns and they all celebrate Eeyore's birthday with a new game named "Pooh Sticks". Of course that Tigger says "That's what Tiggers do best" and then he contradicts himself.

"Winnie the Pooh and a Day for Eeyore" is still a very enjoyable experience and luckily it is available as an extra in the 25th Anniversary Edition DVD of "The Many Adventures of Winie the Pooh".

These Winnie the Pooh's shorts/stories are also a great way to learn and see how valuable friendship is.


I have previously mentioned how much I love Winnie the Pooh. That rule holds up just as much with this movie. A Day For Eeyore was originally supposed to be included in The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh but was released on its own for some reason, but it's just as much of a classic and a childhood stable as The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. The story centers around Eeyore being in an exceptionally bad mood because everyone has forgotten his birthday. Pooh and the gang then decide to throw him a surprise party. I love everything about the film, but what I especially enjoy is the fact that Eeyore gets a chance to be in the limelight as he has some nice dry wit. The part that really sticks out, however, is the party itself. Although I immensely enjoy parties in general, I especially love surprise parties because it's a party when you don't expect it. The ever gloomy Eeyore most certainly didn't expect to have so much fun in store for him. Fun lovable movie that shows that even someone like Eeyore can be cheered up.


Totally unmotivated character choices, abysmal character animation (Pooh's descent to the river after tripping over a tree root is a low point), awful voice work, boring and superficial. Shows a complete lack of interest in what children might find entertaining or amusing. It is packed with extraneous slapstick that arises out of nowhere and amounts to nothing. Each and every character has their central thesis violated and mangled. A blight on the original 3 shorts, and it goes without saying that all considerations of the original book were thrown out the window.

Fans of the original three shorts understand why they are justifiably regarded as pinnacles among Disney's achievements. Consistent attention to detail, to character development, to beautifully realized character animation. They stand out as works of genius. Even when they descend to low comedy, as when Tigger encounters Rabbit on the ice, they are still charming and believable.

A Day for Eeyore simply has nothing to say, no point of view, and is an insult to the work of the great Disney artists who, by virtue of their loving craftsmanship, humor, and rigorous regard for pace, structure and common sense, established the Pooh franchise for eternity.


One of the best shorts from Disney and one of the best versions of Pooh. Very good story with otimas character. Perfect for all toddlers. Highly recommend.


As a kid this short was important for two reasons: 1) Eeyore was a vital character and presence as a child because he was sad and, while told sometimes to try and cheer up, he wasn't forced out of his state (this kind of precedes Sadness from Inside/Out, but you get the idea). 2) I recognized the animation and the voices were different, subtly so, from the three shorts that made up the 'Many Adventures' feature, and this was the first time I realized that cartoons were not made at the same time (ie this was post Sterling Holloway's death). Small things, but I was a freak for Winnie the Pooh as a real little kid! (Hell, the first movie I ever saw and all) This is a wonderful short to watch and is a celebration of Eeyore as an essential part of the Pooh-verse: his dry sense of humor, his seriousness, and acceptance when surrounded by friends.

And yes, there are 'Pooh sticks'.


Another sequel to the original book based Walt Disney cartoon is okay. This cartoon focuses more on the gloomy, probably depressed Eeyore the donkey. Eeyore himself was just gloomier because he thought no-one cares about him. Tigger does get in the way a bit of Pooh and Piglet, but they do get something eventually. Pooh originally went to Owl's house to get some honey for Eeyore, but ends up eating it himself. And Piglet got him a balloon, but it pops. But Eeyore is happy when Pooh gives an empty honey pot, and Piglet a popped balloon. Christopher Robin arranges a party at the end, and all characters celebrate. Kids will probably love Tigger. Winnie the Pooh was number 55 on The 100 Greatest Cartoons. Worth watching!


A Day For Eeyore features only the original voices of Piglet and Tigger, replacing not only the familiar voices of Roo, Rabbit, Kanga, and Christopher Robin, but also the famous Sterling Holloway, the ORIGINAL and renowned voice of Winnie the Pooh. This short centers around the normally gloomy Eeyore, who's birthday has been forgotten by his peers. The storyline lends its attention to more mundane details in what seems to be a forced attempt to capture some of the original wonder and magic found in the first three short films. The animation is significantly inferior to that of the previous in the Winnie the Pooh classic collection and the dialogue is not the pithy banter I've come to recognize in the Winnie the Pooh franchise.

The fourth storybook classic lacks direction and clarity, but is watchable for those who are simply looking for something to entertain the young ones. It should also be noted that the other characters (apart from Eeyore, who is naturally depressed) no longer possess the optimistic and confident qualities of the previous three films.

Overall, I found this movie disappointing, pedantic, and patronizing. However, the bitterness of the aftertaste decreased minutely after each viewing.

It's Eeyore's birthday, but none of his so-called friends have bothered to notice. Pooh has made a new game involving chucking sticks into the river to see which one wins in a race. He calls it 'Pooh Sticks'. Now, where I come from that particular noun means something completely different.

When Eeyore comes floating along they realize that he is more depressed than usual. When he reveals why the day is supposed to be so special they all run off to find makeshift presents and prepare a party. It actually works, and he cheers up.

A fine Winnie the Pooh short, with the great animation and wonderful backgrounds we've come to expect. It also keeps Christopher Robin to a minimum.


"Winnie the Pooh and a Day for Eeyore" is a 24-minute cartoon from over 30 years ago and the most known work by director Rob Reinert, if you don't count his minor contribution to "Mrs. Doubtfire". The Winnie Pooh cartoons got quite a bit of awards recognition, but this one here not really. And I think that's fine. The story is basically as follow: Eeyore has a clash with Tigger on his birthday and is even more depressed as usual. Pooh, Christopher Robin and the gang do their best to cheer him up and they have a birthday celebration. Tigger and Eeyore make up again. In terms of the story, this was maybe enough material for a third of the 24 minutes runtime. The rest was just filler stuff and neither memorable nor entertaining nor anything we have not seen in other Winnie the Pooh films already. As with these, it is again the case that the focus is on one of Pooh's friends. And, as in other WtP films, we hear the narrator interact with the characters at one point. I like Eeyore and it's a shame that he does not have a better movie dedicated to him. Not recommended.


Winnie the Pooh and a Day for Eeyore is a masterpiece if you are looking for a movie that you will be laughing over and over again than this is the movie for you than it is perfect for the whole family to enjoy after you watch it you will be saying why have we never watched that before that was great if you are looking for a movie for the whole family can enjoy than this is the movie it is a work of art you will see nothing like this in your whole life it is so cool i never saw anything like this before if you are looking for a good kick back and chill out than this is the movie for you i know if you liked the other Winnie the Pooh movies than i know you will enjoy this work of art you need to watch this wonderful wonderful wonderful movie that makes you want to say Winnie the pooh Winnie the pooh Winnie the pooh silly oh bear that is how good this movie is if you are looking for a good classic than this is the movie this movie should be in Disney Digital 3D Real D 3D and IMAX 3D now that would be sweet
