[Blu-ray Review] Lovers of all things Pooh will undoubtedly want to own this Blu-ray release, while children in the single-digit range will now have another go-to title to watch every Easter.

Full Review… | March 27, 2014

Aggressively and obnoxiously telegraphs its intention to only impress and entertain very small children. Indiscriminate ones.

Audience Reviews for Winnie the Pooh: Springtime with Roo


Lighthearted holiday fun, Winnie the Pooh: Springtime with Roo is a bouncy, bouncy film exploding with Easter spirit. The story follows the Hundred Acre Wood gang as they gear up to celebrate Easter, however Rabbit has other plans and puts them to work spring cleaning; which leads Tigger to attempt to re-awaken Rabbit's Easter spirit. Once again the storybook/narrator motif is used to great effect, particularly when the characters travel back and forth to Easters past and future by flipping through the book's pages. The animation however, is a bit lacking; it has a very crisp computer animated feel but the coloring is kind of rugged. On the other hand, the music is especially well-done, and features a number of charming children's songs (including some catchy sing-alongs). Winnie the Pooh: Springtime with Roo is an incredibly entertaining and festive family film that has a positive message about friendship and selflessness.

It's like "A Christmas Carol" except with Rabbit as the Scrooge-like character around Easter. Why does Rabbit always have a stick up his butt?

We're out of eggs so we're hunting for Easter rocks instead. Everyone is excited for the upcoming Easter and can't wait to talk to Rabbit about his plans for this year; unfortunately, Rabbit takes advantage of the holiday being about a Rabbit and cancels Easter for Spring Cleaning Day. While working, his friends have their own pretend Easter. Rabbit sees it and believes his friends had Easter without him. Rabbit will need to correct his mistakes and apologize to his friends the only way he knows planning epic Easter events. "First, you sneak up on them. Then you pounce." "Just like I taught him." Saul Blinkoff (Doc McStuffins, Kronk's New Grove, and Pooh's Heffalump Halloween Movie) and Elliot Bour (Pixie Hollow Bake Off, Kronk's New Grove, and Pooh's Heffalump Halloween Movie) collaborate to deliver Winnie the Pooh: Springtime with Roo. The storyline for this picture is actually very well done and interesting despite containing elements from Scrooge. The animation is classic Winnie the Pooh and the voices fit the character perfectly. "Honey is no good for anything but making messes." "...and eating, Rabbit." We came across this on Netflix and immediately added it to the queue. We just watched it in hopes spring would be here soon. We found the film very well done and the plot unfolds well. There are some good lessons in here about how to communicate with friends. This is borderline worth adding to your DVD collection. "Sometimes a narrator has to do what a narrator has to do." Grade: B
