    WINNIE THE POOH CELEBRATES 80TH ANNIVERSARY WITH
    STAR ON THE HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME

    WHO: Honorary Mayor of Hollywood Johnny Grant
    Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, President/CEO Leron Gubler
    Speakers: Robert Iger, President and CEO, The Walt Disney Company
    WHAT: 2,308th Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
    WHERE: 6834 Hollywood Boulevard
    WHEN: 11:00 a.m., Tuesday, April 11, 2006


    For over 80 years, Winnie the Pooh has grown to be one of the most cherished characters within the world of entertainment. He was born in 1925 in the imagination of author A.A. Milne, who captured his son’s love of a stuffed bear in his first Pooh story published in the London Evening News. His first appearance on the big screen was in 1966 in the Disney featurette –“Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree.” Pooh’s popularity has only continued to touch the hearts and minds of children of all ages through films, books, DVD’s consumer products, live shows, theme park attractions and television around the world. No other character captures the true essence of childhood as much as the loveable bear who is a symbol to the child in all of us.
    On the same day as the Walk of Fame ceremony, Walt Disney Home Entertainment will be releasing out of the fabled Disney Vault, “Pooh’s Grand Adventure-The Search for Christopher Robin,” for the first time ever, digitally re-mastered, on DVD.
    Winnie the Pooh is one of a select few animated characters to be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame-an honor that is perfectly timed to the global 18-month long Pooh anniversary celebration Disney kicked off in December 2005 which includes new entertainment and special-edition product in honor of Winnie the Pooh. Disney has also created Pooh Friendship Wishbands to benefit the Make-a-Wish Foundation and encourage the public to “ be a star in the life of a child.” The Wishbands help to spread the Pooh message of friendship and will be sold on WinniethePooh.com.

    Re: Pooh gets star on Walk of Fame - AWN 4/10/06

    Thanks, I was assuming they placed it real close to the Theater,
    but wasn't sure, since Mickey's star is right in front of Grauman's Chinese Theater, right across the street from the Theater and Soda Fountain.

    Pooh's star must be real close to the Disneyland Star that was unveiled on 7-14-05. And if I recall correctly Roy Disney has a star close to the Disney Soda Fountain, also.

    Something is REALLY wrong about this Picture:



    "Today in Hollywood, the sex"hunny"pot, Pooh, shows off
    his Playboy pose, (notice the Star placed Strategically)
    in honor of Hugh Heffner,who also turned 80 this week!
    Happy B-Day you two ol' bears! The least Rabbit
    could have done, would be loan him a pair of ears!"

    Painfully obvious was the absence of "Christopher Robin".
    "The Search for Christopher Robin" Indeed ~ NOT!!!
    You see, Christopher Robin has been disowned by these
    100 Acre Critters. For it has been widely reported that
    a little girl will be given custody of these characters in
    Disney's newest Pooh TV show.



    In a move to pooh-pooh this newest Star on the Walk of Fame,
    The Country Bear's Staged a Protest right across the street
    at Grauman's Chinese Theater. Henry and the Darling of the
    Dakota's welcomed all to come on over, for a live show performed
    by the entire cast of The Country Bear Jamboree, who were all
    evicted from their Playhousen at Disneyland, by the really
    not so cuddly all stuffed with fluff.
