Yo, this honey grubbing bear has been entertaining me for years. I'd remember getting up watching his cartoons with my brothers.

Well, Winnie the Pooh has been around since 1926, and got damn that's a long time. Now sit back, relax, and get yourself a jar of hunny! Here's everything you may or may not know about Winnie the Pooh. Drop it!
Yooooo homie! No lie I've always loved Pooh bear. He was greedy, slow-witted, and naive, but that's what made him so special. Pooh bear, Winnie the Pooh Bear! Wherever you go, oh won't you take me please! Pooh Bear, I gotta be the-e-ere! It's me and it's you! My silly ol' Winnie the Pooooooooooh!
Some things are just too weird to be true, but then they are. Its been stated that the "Pooh" portion of Winnie's name actually came from a swan. But the exact origin is hard to pinpoint: Some sources say that the Milne family met a swan named Pooh on vacation. Um...okay?
They say all great ideas come from somewhere. Well did you know that most of the locations from that magical land, the Hundred Acre Woods, were based on a forest near Milne's country home.
Yup, its the Ashdown Forest in Sussex, England, to be more specific. Milne bought a house there in 1925 and it served as the inspiration behind the woods. Get this the real version is even called the Five Hundred Acre Woods!
In the twenties, A.A. Milne began writing collections of stories and poems that later became the books. It was in these stories where Christopher Robin’s adored toy animals Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, and Roo made their literary debuts. Most of the original toys can be seen on display at the New York Public Library—except for Roo, who went missing in an apple orchard in the thirties. The likes of Owl and Rabbit were included to flush out parts of the story.
Unfortunately as an adult, the real-life Christopher Robin resented his father for using his name in his stories, which he wrote about in his memoir: "It seemed to me almost that my father had got where he was by climbing on my infant shoulders, that he had filched from me my good name and left me with nothing but empty fame."Damn, I can kinda see why he was bitter.
Here it the thing that kicked this whole thing off. A real life Bear started it all. Back in 1914, Lt. Harry Colebourn bought a bear for $20 while serving in WWI. Crap that's cheap. I wish I could buy a bear. He named his new pet Winnie, after his native Winnipeg, and the cub ended up serving as a mascot for the regiment while he was stationed in England.
However, when the soldier left for France, he left Winnie behind where it was safer at the London Zoo. Christopher Milne would routinely visit the zoo starting off the chain of events. Even weirder was the fact that Winnie was female even though Pooh is not.
Silly ol' bear we'll be ending it right here. If you enjoyed the video leave a like and until next time Squadddddddddddddd!
