Cute pictures of tweety bird

In 1951, Mel Blanc (with Billy May's orchestra) had a hit single with "I Taut I Taw A Puddy Tat," a song performed in character by Tweety and featuring Sylvester. In the lyrics Sylvester sings "I'd like to get that Sweetie Pie when he leaves has cage" implying that Tweetie's name is actually Sweetie Pie, altered in its pronunciation by Tweetie's lisp. Sylvester, which his own speech issues, slobbers the "S" in "Sweetie Pie", just as he would the S sounds in his own name.

Winnie the Pooh Characters

The characters of "Winnie the Pooh" are some of the most beloved in children's literature, family film, and TV. In this section, we'll look at the inhabitants of the Hundred Acre Wood and how they relate to each other.

"Winnie the Pooh" Characters

Winnie the Pooh is a friendly bear who is always willing to lend a helping hand to his friends. Pooh loves honey (he spells it "hunny"), but his eternal search for it often gets him into trouble. When Pooh runs out of the sweet stuff, he'll ask to borrow a jar (or several) from a friend or try to taste some from a bee hive in the Hundred Acre Woods.

Christopher Robin is a young boy and the only human friend of Winnie the Pooh (and the gang). Christopher is the one whom Pooh and the other animals can always call on when they get into trouble and need help. Christopher lives at the other end of the Hundred Acre Wood and often calls Pooh a "silly old bear."

Piglet is a very small pig and a good friend of Winnie the Pooh. He has a constant fear of the dark and is very anxious about anything unknown. Whenever he gets scared, he is often heard exclaiming, "Ohhhh, dear!" Even though he is a "very small animal," Piglet will conquer his fears to help his friends.

Tigger is a hyperactive tiger who loves to bounce, because that's "what Tiggers do best." He is a favorite of everyone in the Hundred Acre Wood, except Rabbit, whom he drives crazy with his bouncing. Tigger loves to try new things with gusto, but he often realizes that these endeavors aren't as easy as he thought.

Rabbit is a cranky rabbit who is always concerned that someone, usually Tigger, is going to destroy his well-kept garden. Rabbit likes a very serene life with no surprises, but Tigger and Pooh bring him plenty. While he tends to be a curmudgeon, Rabbit is a big help to Kessie, a bluebird whom he found and nursed back to health.

Eeyore is a loveable, pessimistic, and gloomy donkey. Eeyore is hardly ever happy, but his grumpiness might come from the fact that his tail is pinned to his behind. Disaster regularly follows him; in fact, nearly all of Eeyore's houses have either: fallen down, been knocked down by floods, or have been bounced down by Tigger.

Owl is a wise old owl who tries to give useful advice, directions to far-away lands, and suggestions. Often, his words of wisdom backfire. He loves to read and is somewhat of a know-it-all. When Owl starts talking, he tends to go on and on; that's usually when Pooh and the other animals will quietly sneak away

Winnie the Pooh
Kanga is a kangaroo and the mother of Roo. She also acts as a mother figure to the rest of the characters in the Hundred Acre Wood. Always helpful, Kanga comforts everyone and helps when they are feeling low. She often worries about Roo, especially when he goes off on adventures with his good friend Tigger.

Roo is a young kangaroo. He's Kanga's son and Tigger's best friend. Even though he knows better, little Roo constantly gets into trouble but always learns a lesson. He enjoys discovering the small wonders in life. Roo is nice and sympathetic, and he often expresses thoughts that make him sound older and wiser than his years.

Winnie The Pooh and The Honey Tree

Winnie The Pooh and The Honey Tree 1
Winnie The Pooh and The Honey Tree
Winnie The Pooh And The Honey Tree was the first featurette, and it leads off the compilation feature. It begins with a live action look at a child’s bedroom, strewn with stuffed animals. Though the toys are Disney-fied versions, it does nicely get across the origin of these tales. A storybook opens to a familiar rendering of the Hundred Acre Wood, populated by the characters from the stories. The storybook trappings charmingly remain as a motif throughout the stories. Christopher Robin begins swinging from a tree right there on the map, followed by other characters coming to life on the page. Piglet seems oddly unrealized in his brief appearance here, due to the fact that he never appears in the rest of this story and therefore his design had not been as nailed down as it would be in the next featurette. The first of several charming songs from the Sherman Brothers begins, a simple but endearing ditty introducing Winnie The Pooh. The story that follows is by now very familiar to me, going way back to my View Master days, as those View Master reels were my first exposure to this tale. Winnie The Pooh runs out of honey at his home, and using an unusual amount of ingenuity, he borrows a balloon from Christopher Robin. He then rolls himself in the mud to disguise himself as a rain cloud, and then he uses the balloon to climb to a honey tree. The ruse fails, and he is attacked by bees.
