Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck will be loved by children for generations, but Winnie the Pooh has struck a particular chord with the younger set in recent years.

Pooh will be presented in fullscreen with a newly mixed Dolby Digital 5.1 surround track. The disc will also come with a collection of supplements including a Carly Simon music video of the theme song,
Music video of the theme song sung by Carly Simon, “A Day for Eeyore” featurette, behind-the-scenes footage, a game, a Sing-Along song and a Winnie the Pooh scrapbook.
