Pooh’s Heffalump Halloween Movie is an 2005 American animated direct-to-video film produced by DisneyToon Studios, featuring the characters from Winnie the Pooh franchise. This is the first Pooh movie since the death of Paul Winchell and the last in which John Fiedler provides Piglet’s voice, as Fiedler died in 2005. Nikita Hopkins the voice of Roo was replaced by Jimmy Bennett. It followed by a television film produced by Walt Disney Television Animation, Pooh’s Super Sleuth Christmas Movie, released on November 20, 2007, an animated feature served as the episodes of television series My Friends Tigger & Pooh.
Your favorite friends from The Hundred Acre Wood are back in the all-new original feature, POOH’S HEFFALUMP HALLOWEEN MOVIE. It’s a hilariously haunted Halloween in the Hundred Acre Wood, and Roo’s best new pal, Lumpy, is excited to trick-or-treat for the first time. That is, until Tigger warns them about the dreaded Gobloon who’ll turn you into a jaggedy lantern if he catches you. But if they catch the Gobloon before it catches them, they get to make a wish. When Pooh eats all the Halloween candy, Lumpy and Roo decide to be “brave together, brave forever and catch the Gobloon. Celebrate the bumpity and spookable Halloween season with Pooh and his pals in their first Halloween-themed film in eight years.
Basically, you’ve got a Halloween version of A Very Merry Pooh Year where you have new animation spliced with a holiday special from the past as you get the Pooh Halloween special from the 90s, Boo To You Too, Winnie The Pooh thrown into the mix. Unlike Very Merry Pooh Year however, a lot of new animation is in this one while in that one, about 50% of the movie was new animation and the other half was the old stuff.
Okay, but does the actual movie fare up? About on par as Springtime With Roo and most of these direct-to-video films, it’s harmless, it’s perfectly fine for the kids but adults will probably find some enjoyment out of it but not as much as the kids will. The little kids will definitely get more enjoyment out of this easily.
For what the movie is, it’s perfectly fine but nothing to write home about. If you are looking for a movie to show your kids this Halloween, this is definitely something they will enjoy a lot.
