Winnie the Pooh is a fictional teddy bear and the title character from the-Pooh series of children’s stories by author A. A. Milne. We all know the delightful story, but have you ponder Pooh bear and Christopher Robin relationship.
Christopher loved Pooh very, very much and the affection that Pooh had for Christopher was the same. They spent everyday together, day and night. Its was wonderful each day through the years.
Then one day, Christopher grew up and moved on, having no more need for his loved Pooh bear, now no longer a little boy. What about Pooh bear?, well he waited for Christopher to return but he never did. Pooh was left alone, doomed to live with only the memories of he and Christopher.
Most people don’t get this, mainly because its entertainment for the young and you can’t end the story like a shakespeare play that ends in tragedy, so a happier ending need to be, so Pooh lives happy ever after having many adventures with his friends like Tigger, Piglet, Roo, Heffalump, Kanga, Rabbit, Lumpy, Owl, Kessie, Gopher, Buster and Darby in the Hundred Acre Wood.
As i though about this, it came to me that this story has been told before. Think of Disney’s Pixar series of movies Toy Story. Woody, a good-hearted cowboy, Buzz Lightyear and other loved character who belongs to a young boy named Andy. Just like Winnie the Pooh and Christopher Robin, Andy and his beloved toys spend ever day with each other having great adventures.
In the first two movies, the toys were separated from Andy, the toy’s feared losing Andy. each time they were always reunited in the end. But the 3rd movie, Andy had grown up boxed his toy’s and moved on. If you remember, the toys dreamed of Andy returning, they missed his so much!.
So the tragic story of Winnie the Pooh and Christopher Robin was told, if you look for it.
The more you care about something, the greater the trauma of losing it, has human no empathy!.
