What Have They Done to Pooh?

Fall is here and with fall comes all the things heading towards spooky season. Halloween candy is for sale, costumes are being thought about and all the new horror movies are coming out.

Do you like horror movies? I like certain ones. I am more into psychological thrillers than I am slasher flicks. I will watch “Halloween” or “Friday the 13th”, but I will pass on most things in the horror genre. So, I have to ask a question related to the new batch coming out…what the hell have they done to Winnie the Pooh?

I have three favorite childhood characters: Curious George, Paddington Bear and Winnie the Pooh. That is who they are for, kids, and that is how they should be remembered. Have you heard about the movie, “Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey”? It is coming out soon.

Apparently, Christopher Robin has gone off to college and left his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood to fend for themselves. When the food supply runs dry Pooh and Piglet become unhinged, and all hell breaks loose…WTF? I can’t even begin to imagine how that would even look.

I watched the 2018 movie “Christopher Robin” when I was home sick recently and while sad, it makes more sense to me that Pooh would go on a search for his friend to reconnect, not go on a rampage. As an adult I would be traumatized by it, I can’t imagine if a young kid saw it by accident.

What’s next? Is Paddington Bear going to go berserk and go on a killing spree if Mrs. Brown forgets to buy marmalade one day at the store? Will Curious George get a little too curious after seeing a slasher film and bump off the man in the yellow hat just to see what it feels like?

I know we live in a world where anything goes, but I think some things should remain innocent and pure. Is that too much to ask? Listen, I am in no way a prude, at all, but come on…childhood things should remain cherished.

That is my opinion anyway. I will be watching my usual scary movies while eating a bag of candy corn this year, like I do every year, but I will be giving the blood thirsty Pooh a pass.
