Growing up....

My friend, Gary in San Diego just sent this to me... As long as we have known each other, Gary and I have always reminised about all the old (and GREAT) tv shows we watched as kids/teens... Winnie the Pooh was a HUGE part of my early childhood, as I remember going to D-land back in the day and watching Winnie the Pooh films at the Fantasyland's Disneyland Theatre (back in the 70s). I grew up watching the Pooh Bear and Tigger, too..

Oh wow, watching this brings back really specific memories of sick days home from school, laying on the living room couch with a bowl of soup, my mom cutting ladies' hair in the kitchen-slash-salon where she worked for home when we were school-age. Crazy!

Oops, that comment was meant for the Alice video. It ran in the afternoons when I was little.

Pooh doesn't make me remember sick days. He just makes me smile. ;)

Hi Joy Suzanne...

Thanks for the clari... hehe.. I know what you mean about staying home from school.. I used to be "sick" a lot!! it would be "Alice, One day at a time, Brady Bunch, Partridge Fam., Bewitched... etc... My FAVs were Saturday morning cartoons and Sat. night-- Love Boat/Fantasy Island/SNL!!! And if you could manage to stay up to 1 am it would be Don Krishner's Rock Concert with all the different rock bands each week... Where did you grow up?? Take care, Leesa

That was so precious Leesa.

I used to watch the Sunday program called "The wonderful world of Disney" that showed Winnie the Pooh at times.
A real classic oldie :)
I can recognize the familiar voice of Sterling Holloway, and Sebastian Cabot ( the butler in Family Affair)

My eldest daughter is a huge Pooh fan. She especially loves Eeyore, which is funny because she is a very "up" person.

I couldn't get the video but am going to try again.

BTW, I am really counting the days. AM I EVER!

Oh, I was just able to watch the vieo and it brought tears to my eyes. So low-tech! Willy nilly silly old bear! Sebastian Cabot!

Thanks for sharing this...

Glad to bring back these memories. It's that Sebastian Cabot voice that I recall as so comforting for some reason. Years later, when I taught high school, I worked with an English teacher named Robin Christopher. But she was always so grouchy to even appreciate her wonderful name. As for us, if time isn't linear, then the little kids inside us can pop out at any time. So ... smile and watch it again!
