Drew Taylor & Jim Hill start off this week’s episodes with a quick recap of the 92nd Academy Awards. They then talk about how Winnie-the-Pooh went from a literary property that Walt
pursued for decades to Disney’s most profitable IP next to Mickey Mouse


Over the course of this episode, listeners will learn about:

Why it’s been far too long since we’ve seen a new film from either Brenda Chapman or Kevin Lima

How did the real Christopher Robin Milne feel about the commercialization of Winnie-the-Pooh

Why it might have meant a bit more if Laika’s “Missing Link” or SPA’s “Klaus” had taken home this year’s Oscar for Best Animated Feature

How did being one of Walt’s favorite performers wind up stunting the career of Disney Legend Wally Boag

What did Disney Consumer Products do in the early 2000s that effectively doubled the revenue the Company was making from the sales of Winnie-the-Pooh -themed merchandise
