Pooh? Of course it is. The Pooh figures in the ride are all static, little-amount-of-movement figures. They, at most, need a fresh coat of paint.
Now the bears were full-blown AAs. Not as advanced as such Pirates like the Auctioneer, but certainly up there. AAs are very difficult to maintain. If one little thing goes wrong inside, the whole AA could fail. That is why they took it out- its easier to maintain static figures than Bear AAs.
I didn't know if all of you knew this or not, but the Country Bear show is still at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. Just thought I would throw that in. lol, I was just there this summer, it's a great show , I do hope they don't take it out of Walt Disney World!!!
