​"Winnie the Pooh, Winnie the Pooh,
Chubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff.
He's Winnie the Pooh, Winnie the Pooh,
Willy, nilly, silly old bear."
- Winnie the Pooh cartoon theme song

Winnie the Pooh has been a classic childhood character since the first collection of author A. A. Milne's children's stories was published in 1926.

In the time since, Pooh Bear has starred in numerous books, movies, television series, and promotional products. In the past, the stories were even adapted as stage and radio plays.

The Hundred Acre Wood, Pooh's home, is inhabited by a diverse cast of characters, including Piglet, Tigger, Rabbit, Owl, Eeyore, Kanga, and Roo.

Christopher Robin, a human child, is also among Pooh's friends. He was based on the author's own son by the same name, and the animal characters were his stuffed animals.

The stuffed bear "Winnie the Pooh" was named by young Christopher after a bear named Winnie that he saw at the London Zoo, and a swan named Pooh.

The Wood, too, was based on a real park in England.
