Name That Trauma :: Reader Rotting Rushton on the Mauling of Christopher Robin

Hello all you Kindertraumians!!

As usual I must thank Unkle Lancifer and company for bringing me such delight as I lovingly surf the Kindertrauma site on a daily basis. And to all the readers/surfers who have helped so many citizens out with their incredible responses. I’m still in debt to those who helped me with my last question in regard to the Choking Dog story.

Now, I have no idea if anyone else witnessed what I am about to regurgitate, but I’m going to give it a shot:

One evening, possibly in the mid-nineties or later my brother and I were watching T.V. and there were these animated shorts playing. At one point there was an animated Christopher Robin walking around in the woods flamboyantly saying, “Pooh Bear, oh Pooh Bear? Where are you bear?”

Moments later he pops around a series of trees and continues calling to Pooh and eventually approaches this one specific tree that has a hole in it and he yells into the hole, “Pooh Bear? You silly ole bear” and out of nowhere this giant Grizzly type bear jumps out of the hole and mauls the poor chap; blood goes everywhere while a very destroyed Christopher Robin screams endlessly.

My brother and I just sat there with our mouths open and completely traumatized since Winnie the Pooh was one of our favorites growing up. We discussed it the other day and ended up laughing more than anything at how absurd the entire ordeal was.

Now, I’m not entirely sure if all of this is 100% correct but I do remember it being on television and everyone that I have talked to has said they’ve never heard of such a thing existing. I would love to find a clip of it though. Does anyone recall ever seeing/hearing about this animated short? If so, how could I find it?

I don’t know what it is but it sounds pretty cool to me!

Pooh So Sexy! Love the voice, and another often overlooked model for Jeff “The Dude” Lebowski. Something (over the age of 15, anyway) always gave me the impression there were some mighty weird but passionate trysts goin’ on in the Hundred Acre Wood.

It sounds like something that might happen on Happy Tree Friends.
