American Winnie the Pooh versus Russian Vinni Pukh

Here’s an interesting article about the differences between the American screen adaptation of Winnie the Pooh versus the Russian one: “Wolfgang Reitherman’s first Disney adaptation Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree (1966) is based on the same two chapters as Fyodor Khitruk’s first two Vinni-Pukh (1969/1971) films, both of them about ten minutes long per chapter. However, Pooh and his friends come across as quite different characters in these two versions of the same simple story. “

Here’s a video of the Russian Vinni Pukh, and some pictures below it.
