Special Features
Special features include "Music Time: Disney's Song Selection," which are five adorable animated song scenes with lyrics included, "The Horribly Hazardous Heffalumps!," "Little Mr. Roo," "The Name Game," "Shoulder To Shoulder," and "In The Name Of The Hundred Acre Wood-What Do You Do?" The kids should have a lot of fun playing the game, "Hide 'N Seek With Roo And Lumpy" if they can get the remote away from mom and dad. "Backstage Disney: Welcome To The Family, Lumpy" is a seven-minute featurette describing exactly what a Heffalump is, and there are DVD-ROM features available, as well as sneak peeks. Upfront ads are also included, but Disney offers you the choice of FastPlay, where you are given the option of avoiding them if you wish!

  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
When they hear a strange noise and see huge footprints in the Hundred Acre Wood, "Pooh's" (Cummings) friends and he fear that the dreaded "Heffalump" is near. Afraid that it's like something out of a horror "Movie," they arrange a search party to go after the beast. But little Roo (Hopkins) is not allowed to join in the adventure, so he goes off looking for the scary monster himself. And when he meets Lumpy (Stanger), a young Heffalump, Roo discovers that he's no monster at all and is as friendly and lovable as the rest of his pals. (Tricia Spears)

DVD Picture:
In the classic Pooh animation style, with simple locations and plenty of pastels, this anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture will warm your heart and enlighten your senses. Hues are bright and solid from the pretty turqoise sky to the Heffalump
