Christopher Robin Usurper Given the Axe

The Animation Guild Blog passes along the news that the third season of My Friends Tigger and Pooh has been canceled. This after the crew working on the show was told that the third season was a certainty. Looks like belt tightening is occurring across the Walt Disney Company.

While it is obviously a bad day for the animators, most of whom will need to find new jobs in a tough economy, I am happy that this little experiment replacing the classic character of Christopher Robin with a young hip girl named “Darby” was not a success. The show wasn’t bad for what it tried to do, but what it didn’t do was tell compelling stories and it stretched the brand outside the limits of credibility. Hopefully Disney will be able to get back to the original characters now and continue the Pooh story for a new generation of kids.
