"Tigger, Pooh, Darby and the others are on the case in the first film based on Disney's new "My Friends Tigger & Pooh" CGI-animated series. In this film, everyone is getting ready excitedly for Christmas. They all have things prepared and everyone has various Christmas wishes. Among others, Rabbit would really like to learn how Santa delivers his gifts, and Eeyore wants to fly! Roo and Lumpy (the cute little heffalump introduced in "Pooh's Heffalump Movie") are sent out to play and discover a reindeer named Holly trapped in a bush. They call for the help of the Super Sleuths, who free her, but this only the beginning of the adventure. Roo and Lumpy also find a magic bag, which turns out to be Santa's. Without it, he can't deliver his gifts and will have to cancel Christmas. So now, the Super Sleuths and our other friends from the Wood are on their way to their North Pole. Holly comes along with them, as she's a reindeer-trainee for Santa. The journey is tough, and at times, it seems almost hopeless. But with Christmas on the line, giving up isn't an option!
"Pooh's Super Sleuth Christmas Movie" is great fun for all fans of this bright, exciting new series. They are plenty of great lines and laughs, some thoughtful and heart-felt moments, and three fun and catchy new songs. All in all, it makes for another sweet new holiday film.
Technically, this DVD release is wonderful. The color is bright and vibrant and the film is presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic ("Family-Friendly") widescreen. The audio is Dolby Digital 5.1, and there are captions and subtitles available, as well as French and Spanish language tracks. This DVD also includes Disney's "Fast Play" feature, which starts the movie automatically if the menu isn't chosen. Previews include the upcoming "101 Dalmatians" Platinum Edition DVD release and "Little Einsteins: Race for Space," among others.
"Super Sleuth Christmas Movie" comes with two great bonus features. The best of all is an entire bonus episode from the television series, "Symphony for a Rabbit / Tigger Goes Snowflakey." This complete episode of the show has only aired in the U.K. as of the release of this DVD. In the first story, Rabbit needs help with a concert when he breaks his orchestra machine. In the second, Tigger searches for two snowflakes that are exactly alike. The DVD also includes a game, the "100 Acre Wood Downhill Game." This game is reasonably decent. It allows you to select from one of four courses and then collect a series of presents. After this comes a second part, in which the gifts must be matched to who in the Hundred Acre Wood they go to. The gifts should be reasonably easy matches, and Darby's comments are helpful as well.
If you or your kids are already fans of "My Friends Tigger & Pooh," this movie is a sure bet. If not, give it a try! You may just discover something new, fresh and fun."
A merry adventure

"Preschoolers should love this bright and cheery Christmas movie, the first film based on Playhouse Disney's television series "My Friends Tigger & Pooh." The story is cute and full of energy. On Christmas Eve, the problem-solving Super Sleuths -- Darby, Pooh and Tigger -- help a little lost reindeer get back to the North Pole, and return Santa's lost magic toy sack, in time for Christmas. The characters are as appealing as ever. My favorite part? When Santa asks, "Eeyore with your nose so gray, how'd you like to pull my sleigh?" the little donkey gets his secret Christmas wish: to fly!
Also on the DVD are two episodes from the television show. "Symphony for a Rabbit" has Rabbit needing help with his Spring Concert when his orchestra machine breaks. In "Tigger Goes Snowflaky," the bouncy tiger tries to find two snowflakes that are alike. A third bonus feature, the Hundred Acre Wood Downhill Game, lets players help Darby collect scattered gifts from Santa and guess which present goes to which character.
Why not five stars? Because when it comes to Pooh, I'm hopelessly biased. I love the A.A. Milne stories and Disney's early adaptations so much that I just can't fall in love with these newer programs. (Want a 5-star DVD? Try The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.)"
I reluctantly give this 4 stars

"If it was up to me this movie would get 1 star but it's my 3 year old son's opinion of the movie that matters and he loved it. That surprised me greatly as he simply adores the classic Pooh films and stories. He has never seen the new 'My Friends Tigger and Pooh' before and didn't mind Darby and the new style one bit. He found the tunes very catchy and took in the tale with open arms. What more can I say...
I disliked almost everything about this movie from the animation to the new character Darby and it's new style. I felt that some of the original characters were a bit out of character ranging from either their voice, their lines, and/or their actions. I disliked the new character Darby for no other reason than this...she is not part of and doesn't belong to the Hundred Acre Wood...I guess I am a purist in that the Hundred Acre Wood gang are really a part of Christopher Robin and his world. Darby should be out and Christopher Robin should be in (along with Owl, of course!). About the new style...it just isn't Winnie the Pooh...I really hated it.
With that said I reluctantly give this movie four stars because my son loved everything about this movie and there is nothing wrong with the underlying story and message."
