Winnie the Pooh is one of the most long-lived and well-loved children's characters from books and Disney films, and his fearful but sweet nature is revealed in many memorable Winnie the Pooh quotes from different films, TV shows, and specials. From the classic "Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day" to a new film coming out in 2011, there are some Winnie the Pooh quotes that recur for the character as he goes throughout his days in the woods with pals Tigger, Piglet, and the morose Eeyore. Here are some of the most memorable Winnie the Pooh quotes.
"Oh, oh, help and bother. I'm stuck." Winnie loves his honey, and sometimes that means he gets stuck in the hole to his, or someone else's, home. It's a variation on his classic "Oh, bother," another of his recurring Winnie the Pooh quotes. This instance, having gotten stuck in Rabbit's hole, is from "The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" from 1977.
"The only reason for being a bee is to make honey. And the only reason for making honey is so I can eat it." There are many Winnie the Pooh quotes about honey, and this is one of the first, also from 1977's "The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh." The bear loves his honey, or "hunny," and that love often gets him in the trouble that leads to the adventures of Pooh and his merry band.
"Thank you, Piglet." This Winnie the Pooh quote from "Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day," probably the most classic and revered of the Winnie the Pooh Disney cartoons, is memorable because of what it comes after, a backhanded compliment from Piglet. "Pooh, for a bear with very little brain, you sure are a smart one." The Pooh specials are filled with clever little lines like this, as much for the adults watching with their kids as the kids themselves.
"I am so rumbly in my tumbly." Another of the most memorable Winnie the Pooh quotes comes from his hunger for honey. As he wanders around muttering to himself, he hits his head. Later, with his mind still on the honey, he sits on a branch and it breaks.
"On lawn chair! On badminton! Up up and away!" This last of our memorable Winnie the Pooh quotes comes from the 1991 Pooh Christmas special. Pooh is pretending to be Santa Claus, and, in a way only silly Pooh could, getting the names of the reindeer wrong.
