With such classics as Frankenpooh and Spookable Pooh out there, no one would blame you if you thought that My Friends Tigger & Pooh: Hundred Acre Wood Haunt was the newest edition in the line of Pooh and friends Halloween specials. In fact, it even looks like that is what Disney wants you to think with their marketing.Trick or treating Pooh and Tiggers are certainly going to trick some parents and that is no treat!
If you’re looking for a Halloween-themed Pooh DVD, keep looking. However, if you’re just looking for the latest collection of episodes from Disney Channel’s My Friends Tigger & Pooh show, you’ve come to the right place. Admittedly, the front cover art of this DVD collection is completely misleading and seems like an ill-conceived holiday money grab as it clearly indicates viewers will be treated to Halloween shows if not an entirely new movie (like the properly labeled first release in the series, Super Sleuth Christmas Movie). Once you get past the cover, you’ll either be enchanted by the show’s superb production qualities or dismayed by its break from tradition. . . Paradoxically, the DVD actually does contain one Halloween-themed episode: a bonus feature of fellow Disney Channel show Handy Manny.
