Welcome to Pooh Corner is a Disney Channel show that began airing the same day the Disney Channel began airing, on April 18th, 1983. It is notable for being the first Winnie-the-Pooh TV series.

The show starred mostly costumed actors in live-action, with Roo being a puppet (later portrayed by a smaller actor in costume).[1] Although the show ended in 1986, reruns went through 1997. Six volumes were released by Walt Disney Home Video in the US, along with a VHS release of the educational special "Too Smart For Strangers."[2] Each volume contained 4 episodes each. 6 episodes were released in the UK, in a series that showcased other early Disney Channel shows. Two of the educational specials were released on DVD in "Disney Safety Hits Vol. 2" - these were "Pooh's Great School Bus Adventure" and "Too Smart for Strangers." Because the show's runtime was during a time when home recording devices were uncommon, most of the 120+ episodes were lost.

The show was dubbed in French as Les Aventures de Winnie l'Ourson ("The Adventures of Winnie the Bear Cub") and aired in France as early as January 1985. The French version changed various aspects of the show, most notably the opening sequence. In the French opening, Rabbit is shown as a drawing rather than a stuffed animal. This happens to Piglet in later episodes as well. It had two different narrators/hosts during its run: Vincent Perrot and Jean Rochefort, whereas the English version only had one, Laurie Main.

Episodes[edit | edit source]

Including the holiday specials, there are 120 original episodes of Welcome to Pooh Corner. According to Winniepedia, there are two different episodes named Strawberry Time. In 2022, it was confirmed that this lost episode was actually titled "Strawberry Farm." Some episodes may be found with names that are not on the table, so the total number of episodes may be more than currently known.
