Present Day Life of Winnie-the-Pooh and All

Winnie's friends

As a warm-up exercise: in turns say a few words about the Pooh story and the characters, whatever you remember from books, cartoons, etc.

  1. Who’s your favourite character? Why? Winnie-the-Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Kanga, Baby Roo, Rabbit, Eeyore, Christopher Robin, Owl. Do any of your acquaintances resemble these characters?
  2. Can you imagine what kind of characters they would have been when grown adults?
  3. Can you think of Tigger having a big family and a strict wife? Think of the other characters having families, mortgage, commuting to work every day in public transport.
  4. What kind of profession would the characters have obtained? Cook, sailor, teacher, boss, gangster, etc.
  5. What bad habits would the characters have obtained? Smoking, overeating, drinking, etc.
  6. From the view point of psychiatry they all have mental disorders: Winnie-the-Pooh - eating disorder, Piglet - anxiety disorder, Tigger - attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, Rabbit - obsessive compulsive disorder, Eeyore - major depressive disorder, Christopher Robin - schizophrenia, Owl - narcissistic personality disorder. Would you please comment on this statement? Have you noticed before that they are like that?
  7. How would you describe the characters’ behaviour if they lived among us in present day Moscow. Think of Tigger driving a car in Moscow traffic jam! Imagine Winnie-the-Pooh studying chemistry at the university. Think of Piglet going to the army. Owl could have started teaching Latin.
  8. Imagine Christopher Robin an adult of some 20-30 years old. How would he manage to hide his friends? What if they want to follow him at work or at a date with his dream-girl? What would you advise him?
  9. Which Winnie do you like best: the one voiced by Papanov in the Soviet screen adaption or in Disney Walt’s? Why?
  10. Winnie-the-Pooh’s official birthday date is the 21st of August 1921, when the author of the story- Alan Alexander Milne - gave his son a teddy bear which later was named Edward Bear. How would you celebrate his birthday?
