# it's not just you
the books are still good, even now! the disney version has a lot of things going for it, but it really has lost the essence of the original books.

and i'd just like to say that i used to live down the road from the hundred acre wood, and there are NO MOUNTAINS!

that is all

# aargh! spacefish -
i also used to live just down the road. i grew up in Forest Row near ashdown forest (well, i was there until i was five). have some mad pictures of me at 4 and a half with a bobble hat on dragging my own bear around the hundred acre wood :-)

# the funniest bit about the hundred acre wood is that there are NO TWIGS
little kids pick the entire area clean in order to play poohsticks

my mum's house is just outside edenbridge/hever and we drive over and take the dog for walks there when i come to visit. i have lots of happy memories of the ashdown forest

# aye, 'tis a lovely place
not sure i ever played poohsticks though. I think i found pooh somewhere later in life when it harked back to the blissful ignorance of youth. i guess that's why most people who like it like it.

Also a massive PG Wodehouse fan though, and he hated Christopher Robin with a passion ;-)

Well, nice to meet another survivor from Kent! Still drive past every now and again as the gf's folks are still there. I aim to retire there in 40 years or so...

# all of which
has led me off the point -

i would like that disney fellow's head on a platter (if only he hadn't a) already died, and b) already had his head cut off and frozen incase the future invented re-animation (pardon the pun) - He should have kept the spinal cord, believe me. I did a fair bit of neurocsience in my degree, and he's buggered without it) for mucking around with the classics.
