Winnie the Pooh: A Very Merry Pooh Year

 (2002)

Winnie the Pooh: A Very Merry Pooh Year Blu-ray features mediocre video and audio in this mediocre Blu-ray release

This is a combination of the 1991 Christmas TV special "Winnie the Pooh and Christmas Too" and the addition of "Happy Pooh Year."

For more about Winnie the Pooh: A Very Merry Pooh Year and the Winnie the Pooh: A Very Merry Pooh Year Blu-ray release, see Winnie the Pooh: A Very Merry Pooh Year Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Winnie the Pooh: A Very Merry Pooh Year Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Unlike Mickey's Christmas Carol, Winnie the Pooh: A Very Merry Pooh Year hasn't been subjected to copious amounts of noise reduction, nor is it a poor representation of its original source. That doesn't mean its digitally remastered 1080p/AVC-encoded video presentation doesn't disappoint, though. Animated by DisneyToon Studios and released directly to video in 2002, A Very Merry Pooh Year suffers from many of the eyesores and problems that plague several other on-the-cheap Disney sequels and specials available on Blu-ray. (Atlantis: Milo's Return immediately comes to mind.) DNR, smearing and other heavy-handed techniques aren't at play here; this is simply a mediocre source resulting in a mediocre high definition image. If fact, most, if not all of Pooh Year looks so much like a standard definition upscale presentation (which it presumably is) that the real question should be why is this being released on Blu-ray at all? Noise of all varieties, color fluctuations, pixelation, aliasing, ringing, artifacting, and even a few, brief 3:2 pulldown anomalies appear throughout. Moreover, the entire movie is quite soft, albeit again, inherently so. It doesn't help that grain is present to some small degree in the 1991 Christmas Too portions of the film and not in the 2002 Happy Pooh Year segments, adding yet another visual inconsistency to the mix. Bottom line: Pooh Year wasn't created with a high definition future in mind, and it shows. Granted, the Christmas Too stretch fares a bit better than its Happy Pooh Year bookends, but only subjectively, in terms of animation quality. Colors are more vibrant, contrast is stronger, and black levels are deeper in Christmas Too, while Happy Pooh Year is rather bright and washed out. Be that as it may, the same issues persist across both sections of the movie and, objectively, the entire presentation suffers equally.

Now here's where it gets tricky. As a representation of its source, A Very Merry Pooh Year's video arguably warrants a solid score. This is the movie as it was animated and prepped for release in 2002, standard definition video-born flaws and all. And yes, the new BD bests its long-since outdated DVD counterpart. However, it all looks far too much like a 2013 DVD release of a 2002 direct-to-video animated movie, meaning there isn't enough of an upgrade or improvement here for even the most nostalgic fans to get remotely excited about. It fails to justify a Blu-ray release, and certainly fails to justify such a notably high premium pricepoint.


Winnie the Pooh: A Very Merry Pooh Year Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

With no lossless audio option to be found, A Very Merry Pooh Year hobbles along with a wholly unremarkable Dolby Digital 2.0 stereo track. Voices are clear and intelligible, yet rather flat and tinny. Effects and music are quite thin and canned as well, and the mix doesn't deliver a very involving or engaging soundscape either. That said, like the movie's video presentation, this is a fair approximation of Pooh Year's sound design. It just doesn't sound better than what I would expect from a recently released DVD.
