I know the show is on Disney Plus now, but I’m making my own DVD set of this show as well. I’m only interested in English and I want to preserve it in SD. Call me crazy, but I prefer to keep SD TV shows in the format they were originally broadcast. So no HD for old shows for me. I’m using the official DVD releases for most segments. A few were only on PAL DVDs that I’ll convert to NTSC. If they weren’t released on DVD at all, then I’ll use the Laserdisc release. Most episodes were released on either LD or DVD (or both). I’ll use the official VHS release if there was no DVD or LD release. Many of the Laserdisc rips are up on Archive.org, however, a few are not. Does anyone have these Pooh Laserdiscs?:
Everything’s Coming Up Roses / Pooh to the Rescue
Helping Others / Growing Up
King of the Beasties/ Sky’s the Limit
Wind Some, Lose Some / All’s Well That Ends Well
Birds of a Feather
There were only four segments that weren’t released on any home media format:
To Bee or Not to Bee
Sorry, Wrong Slusher
There were also four 30 min (with commercials) specials which I consider to be part of this show as well. Only “Christmas” is actually recognized as part of the show, however.
Winnie the Pooh and Christmas Too
Boo to You Too! Winnie the Pooh
A Winnie the Pooh Thanksgiving
Winnie the Pooh: A Valentine for You
“Winnie the Pooh and Christmas Too” was released on Laserdisc and is up on archive. It was also “remixed” into the DVD movie “Winnie the Pooh: A Very Merry Pooh Year” with some changes and redubs. “Winnie the Pooh: A Valentine for You” was released to DVD as aired, thankfully.
“A Winnie the Pooh Thanksgiving” (along with “Groundpiglet Day” and “Find Her, Keep Her”) was remixed into the DVD movie “Winnie the Pooh: Seasons of Giving” and can be patched back into normal episodes/ segments for 90% of the footage. S
“Boo to You Too! Winnie the Pooh” is on DVD as part of “Winnie the Pooh: Pooh’s Heffalump Movie”, but it’s also on UK DVD as originally aired.
