Cartoon Odditites: Pre-Disney Puppet Pooh

Here's an odd thing I found while wondering around the internet one day, it's a marionette version of Winnie the Pooh made for Shirley Temple's Storybook, made 6 years before Disney did it's take on the silly old bear. The only clips I could find of this episode are in this trailer I found promoting the DVD release of the series (The clips start at 00:52 and end at 1:21).

This episode (packaged with the adaption of "Babes in Toyland") is available on DVD at

Trivia: The series also did adaptions of "The Little Mermaid", "Land of OZ", "Beauty and the Beast", and "The Prince and the Pauper", all of which would be later adapted by Disney.
