Elvis Presley Winnie The Pooh And Other Characters, Too!
Do you remember that time when Winnie the Pooh decided to be an Elvis impersonator, so he got a black leather costume like the one Elvis Presley wore in his '68 Comeback TV Special? Pooh put on a highly successful concert in the Hundred Acre Woods. Kanga probably would have thrown her underwear at Winnie the Pooh while he was performing on stage, if Kanga ever wore any clothes.
At the height of the bean bag craze at the Disney Store and Disney Catalog (around years 2002 to 2005), Winnie the Pooh and his friends from the Hundred Acre Woods got themselves in to some outrageous situations. I do not own any of these bean bags, but I thought these were hilarious and outlandish.
Piglet, Eeyore and Pooh love to dress up as monsters to scare off the Heffalumps and Woozles. And everyone else.
They sure are scary here! I think this set was released when "Monsters Inc." debuted.
Pooh and his pals also performed in a Beatles cover band! It's not that hard to imagine, since they are all from the United Kingdom.
Of course, the Beatles decided to branch out as cartoon characters for a while, so it was alright with everybody.
Dr. FrankenPooh decided to make a FrankenEeyore monster, but nobody in the Hundred Acre Woods really noticed him.
Tigger did not participate in this project, because he had dressed up as Franken-Tigger years earlier!
Piglet and Tigger spent some time in school. They did not really hang out together.
Do you think Jock Tigger picked on Nerd Piglet? No way! Piglet later started his own successful business on the Internet, and Tigger is now one of his bodyguards.
Pooh stole too much honey from the bees and was sent away to live in Australia for a while. While he was there, he tried to blend in with The Outback animals.
Crikey! It's Platypus Pooh and Lizard Pooh!
Eeyore, Pooh, Piglet and Tigger later started competing in 100 Acre Wrestling Federation matches.
I think Piglet was on steroids.
Pooh also joined a 1980s hair band.
Pooh had a successful career, but developed an even more severe honey addiction while on tour. Pooh is currently working on an album with Blondie.
Tigger tried to be a Vaudeville performer.
The outfit alone got Tigger laughs when he went on stage.
After years of intense studying, Piglet and Pooh got jobs at the Hundred Acre Woods University.
Winnie the Pooh, what did they do to you? I think I had a few teachers that looked like this in school.
Stay tuned for more wild and wacky Winnie the Pooh!
