    You probably grew up watching Winnie The Pooh, but did you know the bear's real world origins? Subscribe to our channel: goo.gl/ho3Hg6
    Christopher Robin is now out in theaters everywhere, and it has Winnie the Pooh back on a lot of people’s minds. Which begs the question, how many people who are running out to check out the latest Disney film know the real world origins of the tubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff?
    We here at Screen Rant are willing to bet that at least a few of you don’t know the story of A. A. Milne, of his time in the British Military, of the fact that Pooh is based off of his son’s teddy bear. Or perhaps, the fact that Christopher Robin was actually a real person, who grew up to hate his fictional namesake. All this and more, in this Screen Rant list video!

Just because feminism is popular doesn’t mean that Pooh is a girl all of a sudden. HE is a BOY, always was and always will.

I first discovered Winnie the Pooh in third grade, in the mid-1940s. We always had a classroom library in those days (do they still have them? I hope so.) and was an avid reader. I don't know how, but I actually read the books in order: "Winnie the Pooh" and "The House at Pooh Corner." (Imagine that: little children eagerly reading BOOKS!) I'm not embarrassed to admit, I quite enjoyed the Disney films and shorts as an adult.

You forgot to mention that part of the bear's name came from a swan in a London park that Christopher had named "Pooh."

Winnie the Pooh was definitely a crucial part of my childhood. I actually came across a little boy who didn't know about Pooh Bear, so I enlightened him a bit.

William Old there is no evidence that I've ever been able to find that Winnie the Pooh was ever anything before Winnie the Pooh other than Edward Bear which is obviously a boy's name and the one given to him by Christopher Robin. There is nothing saying that Winnie the Pooh was ever supposed to be a girl especially since it was based almost entirely off of Christopher Robin's playing in the garden. Even the illustrator Ernest H Shepard based his artwork for the novel off of going and visiting Christopher while he played.

Ye but they wanted the bear in the book to be a girl to but the publisher did not like it because the main character was a girl so were both right

I read the original works with my nephew - A.A. Milne asked Christopher Robin that same question when he started calling Edward the teddy bear "Winnie" instead. Christopher Robin's response had been that the teddy bear is a boy, his name is "Winnie" because that's his name.

Winnie The Pooh is NOT a girl. He is always referred to as him/he in every single one of the books. Although his name is based off a female bear at the zoo, Pooh's name was originally Edward. This further proves that he is a boy. So yeah, Pooh is NOT a girl he is a boy.

um I already knew this stuff... most Pooh fans would know this stuff as long as you've actually read up on your characters and done your research about the author and his family. Also the individual who illustrated the original novel would constantly go and visit Christopher Robin which is why the boy and the bear who are in the original illustrations look exactly like Christopher Robin in real life and his stuffed bear.

It must have been difficult living in the shadow of his father and the book character, I imagine it's rather like being type cast in life or having a nickname you grew to loathe but couldn't escape from.
