The Book of Pooh is a show that originally aired on Disney Channel's former Playhouse Disney programming block from 2001-2003. Despite the mass popularity of the Winnie the Pooh franchise, this is one of the rarest Winnie the Pooh shows with 51 episodes produced and only 12 of them released on home video. Although the direct to video movie "Stories From the Heart" recycles 3 episodes, the order of the individual stories is switched around and differs from the actual episodes. Additionally the original English versions of several songs have been released on compilation albums. But apart from these releases and the recordings of a very few people who taped the show when it was still on Playhouse Disney, at least half the series remains to be seen.

The entire series, save for one episode, has been recorded in German and was previously available for download. However, due to the recent change in policy for the site the episodes were uploaded to, the links no longer work and the original uploader has not replaced them. Furthermore, the German dub used the original versions of the Season 1 episodes (before recaps were added to the show) making several recaps still missing. Even still, the original version of any Season 1 episode (with no recaps and an extended closing song) in English has yet to surface. The chances of such a find are unfortunately very slim as recaps were added to the show as early as July 2001 meaning someone would have to have recorded the show very early in its run to have an original.

Simply put, the whereabouts of Book of Pooh are unusually confusing and elusive for a Disney show.

I knew this show was real, I vaguely remember watching it! Our public library had sold VHS tapes and I took this home one time (I don't think it was the complete series, but a bunch in English). But obviously they don't sell them any more thus wouldn't have it in stock, but next time I go there I'll have to take a peek just in case! If I could get without any receiving any weird looks I could play it on my tiny VHS TV and record it potato camera style or something XD

I have a tape of a featurette of the "Stories from the heart" movie that was not supposed to be sold in stores and is actually property of Buena Vista Pictures Distribution so its nearly impossible to find. It was only for promotional use so I'm assuming it was only for use in stores or TV broadcasting (correct me if I'm wrong). The tape itself was made by VDI Multimedia made on 5/31/01 and the label did not seem at all Disney like, except when it says "Walt Disney Home Video". If I hadn't known any better, I would have thought it was a bootleg. The content itself is 3:21 long and followed by blackness for a very long time until the tape ends. Anyone else have this? Hope this helped someone.

Is the whole series lost, or just the original episodes? I see tons of 1 hour long videos on YouTube.

I have a CD with quite a few of the songs from the show on it. I'm shocked this is a lost series. As in, I feel like this couldn't have happened. I might try to get into contact with someone from the show.
