On YouTube, there's a popular series of fan-made movies known simply as the "Pooh's Adventures series". They are a group of fictional crossovers that detail what it would be like if Winnie the Pooh and his Hundred Acre Wood friends would go on adventures inside other Disney movies (and movies that are not Disney-related, which is kinda weird).

The craze all started in probably 2007, when YouTube user brerdaniel (now DisneyDaniel93) started to make a series of fan-made movies by using mash-ups of Winnie the Pooh-related clips and uses of clips from various Disney movies. In fact, this is how I discovered the concept of the fictional crossover; on YouTube, in around 2008 or so, I was looking up nostalgic Winnie the Pooh videos when all of a sudden, I came across a clip called "Winnie the Pooh meets the Hunchback of Notre Dame, Part 1". I didn't click on it until the next day, because it would be a surprise. At first, I thought it was really made by Disney, but after I started to watch it, it was a fan-made mash-up, but it was really impressive!

There were other fan-made movies in which Pooh has adventures in Disney movies like Beauty & the Beast, The Lion King, Pocahontas, Toy Story, and even Mulan. However, it was kind of weird that in the Mulan crossover, it had Ash from Pokemon, and how there were other "Pooh's Adventures" movies that crossed over with non-Disney movies like Batman: Mask of the Phantasm and Freddie as F.R.O.7. In my opinion, Disney crossing over with non-Disney don't mix at all.

So, I'm going to ask this question: should Disney make actual Pooh's Adventures movies, and if so, would they be direct-to-DVD releases (due to monetary constraints)?

Indeed, both Winnie the Pooh and Tigger appeared in Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue, a 1989 drug-prevention cartoon featuring many famous cartoon characters. It is what I call the most important fictional crossover ever made, and the only time when Disney and non-Disney crossovers made sense to me (and got interesting).

I think Disney should put this idea into practice due to four possible reasons I could think of: (1) to piggy-back on the popularity of the "Pooh's Adventures" series on the Internet, (2) to make kids (particularly Winnie the Pooh fans) happy and excited, (3) to make the Winnie the Pooh franchise more popular, and (4) to experiment with new ideas regarding the fictional crossover.

For starters, Disney should release five direct-to-DVD films such as Pooh's Adventures of Beauty and the Beast, Pooh's Adventures of Pocahontas, Pooh's Adventures of the Lion King, Winnie the Pooh meets the Hunchback of Notre Dame, and Pooh's Adventures of Mulan.

Well, I had to mention, since TRON: Uprising is an animated show on the Disney Channel, it should be possible that Winnie the Pooh and his friends would be inside the TRON universe; indeed, the Kingdom Hearts game Dream Drop Distance featured the TRON universe, with several famous Disney characters like Mickey Mouse in the level. I also saw fan-art of Winnie the Pooh wearing a blue TRON: Legacy armor while holding an identity disc, though I could hardly find it on Google Images anymore. If there is an animated Disney movie (direct-to-DVD) called Pooh's Adventures of TRON, than it would be the greatest sci-fi crossover that many kids and Pooh fans would enjoy. {However, I did write an article detailing what it would be like if Winnie the Pooh had his own science fiction movie (it could have elements of Star Wars, TRON, and Isaac Asimov's science fiction stories); feel free to check it out, because it deserves to be seen publicly!}

What do you think about this idea? Brilliant, or what?


Do you think Disney should work on the "Pooh's Adventures" movies, and if so why?
