The Book of Pooh is a show that originally aired on Disney Channel's former Playhouse Disney programming block from 2001-2004. Despite the mass popularity of the Winnie the Pooh franchise, the show was considered 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 three 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 the very few people who taped the show when it was still on Playhouse Disney, the show floundered in obscurity until recently.

The entire series, save for one episode, had been recorded in German and was previously available for download. However, due to a change in policy for the site the episodes were uploaded to, the links no longer work, and the original uploader has yet to replace them.

When Disney+ launched in North America on November 12th, 2019, all 51 episodes of The Book of Pooh were included as part of the initial line-up of shows. [1] However, Disney+ used the original versions of the Season 1 episodes (with no recaps and an extended credits sequence), thus resulting in a few recaps that are still missing. Currently, the recaps for episodes 4, 9, 10, 20, 25, 26, 30, 37 and 47 appear to be lost.

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

VHS Compilations

Most VHS tapes have been found and uploaded to YouTube, by Tommy Sapphire, including "A Valentine for Eeyore", "Fun with Friends", "Fun with Make Believe","Fun with Manners", "Fun with Words", and "Just Say BOO". Another YouTuber, Phineas0And0Ferb, uploaded the special "Stories From the Heart".

A Japanese DVD of "The Wishing Tree" has also been found and ripped by a Wiki user KristoHam. However, the DVD only contained the Japanese language track, so the English version remained missing until it was uploaded to YouTube by another user.


A great number of episodes have been uploaded, by a Playhouse Disney fan channel and are featured down below.

In addition, another fan with multiple recordings of the show posted more of the episodes on Google Drive and Google Photos (including some from CDCB); these are also featured below.

On November 12th, 2019, Disney made the whole show available on its streaming service, Disney+, on its launch day.[2]
