Poohdickery for 10/5/12

Writer Don Ferguson and artist Richard Moore did a syndicated Winnie the Pooh comic strip for ten years that still gets reprinted today. One of the notable aspects of the strip is how Winnie the Pooh and his friends often act a lot less nice than they do in their animated appearances. In this feature, I’ll post one of these examples each installment.

Read on for today’s example of Poohdickery (tip of the hat to commenter John for the name)…

This is a great idea for a feature.

What a dick!

Today I learned Winnie the Pooh is Sheldon Cooper.

Something about stuffed animals being unpleasant is just so appealing.

I vaguely remember reading Winnie the Pooh sunday pages long time ago but not anything of the content…but these are wonderful.

Poohdickery is still illegal in my state.

All the guys in the Hundred-Acre Wood seem to suffer from various mental illnesses. Pooh is a honey addict with a compulsive personality, Piglet has severe generalized anxiety, Tigger has AD/HD, Eeyore suffers from chronic depression, and Mr. Rabbit could be construed as OCD in his fastidious care for his garden. Christopher Robin wasn’t a friend so much as a caretaker.

This is now my favorite feature on this site.

I hope this feature runs for ten years, too.

Good god, do NOT type “poohdickery” into a search engine without having some sort of adult filter on it!

A friend of mine loved Pooh books as a kid but commented that now when she’s reading the books to her child she notes all kinds of things in them, like how a*****ish Eeyore is and so forth…so the originals had their bits of nastiness in them but it did come out a bit differently than these strips.

Of course Eeyore is an a**hole — damn speciesist comic creators!

I will pay money for a book full of these Winnie the Pooh comic strips.

find it hilerious that not only is there a strip that lets the characters be dicks to each other being all stuffed animals but Disney and Milines estate never ever tried and stop the strip from ever being printed in the first place. for there is just something interesting about pooh being a real snot to his friends.

This is my favorite new feature.

Phillip: you owe me a keyboard.
