The narrator does an incredible job of bringing each character to life. Piglet is hysterical.
I LOVE POOH BEAR...and all of his friends in Pooh corner. I was thrilled when this popped up on sale and had to have it. And them I heard it....Where was the voice I've known as long as I xxxxan remember and that silly little laugh I love as much as my own child's? And what was that strange and terrible noise every time Piglet spoke? Could it be the Hippolumpf??? Noo0oo0oo0! Piglet...Pooh....what has happened to you? ??
Yes, I am quite aware that many believe this narrative performance to be superior to the "American" voices most of us are used to. I actually thought I would not only quickly get used to this narrator's character voices but grow to prefer them. I was very, very wrong.
I loved these stories as a child and got them for my grandchildren. I'm not sure they enjoyed them as much, but it was a nice memory for me.
Winnie the Pooh will never rate less than 5 stars in any universe that I inhabit, but Peter Dennis just had him all wrong. Christopher Robin can say what he will, but Sterling Holloway will always be Pooh in my universes.
Peter Dennis should not be narrating Winne-the-pooh. Every single time Piglet says a sentence, it is followed by this annoying pig snort. EVERY TIME, people.
Stop the annoying snorting every time Piglet speaks.
Disney already did this beautifully.
