Most of us all know Winnie the Pooh, the anthropomorphic bear and star of such TV hits as “Welcome to Pooh Corner”, “The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh”, blah blah blah. This intro’s really boring right? I actually fell asleep a bit there just writing it. So, forget the intro. Let me just skip to the fun stuff.
Winnie the Pooh is probably one of the most successful children’s series of all time. So, many of you may already know what I’m about to share, but I only just stumbled across it this morning so thought why not share.
Did you know that the characters in Winnie the Pooh all had certain mental disorders? *insert dramatic music*
Yeah, apparently there are immense psychological undertones throughout the series and each character was meant to portray a different disorder. For instance:
Eeyore had severe depression. I mean just watching the guy makes you feel super low about everything. Tigger clearly had some serious ADHD while Piglet had an anxiety disorder of sorts. Obviously these are things we wouldn’t have known when we watched the show as kids, but try watching it now. When you done, pick the Pooh character that most resembles you…then get help. 🙂
There’s another sort of light-hearted way to look at Winnie and Co. though. Maybe they don’t have mental disorders. Maybe they just like to partake in some recreational drugs for some fun times! For instance:
Eeyore the donkey doesn’t care about anything. He has slow reactions and a lack of motivation…this dude is most likely on weed. Some pretty potent stuff too. How about your dealer’s number Eeyore?
Piglet is afraid of everything and is as paranoid as a ZCC usher. This little fella is probably on some shrooms. That good fungi.
Rabbit gets into everybody’s business. That’s coz he sniffing that white. Yep, rabbit is on cocaine.
Tigger can’t calm down. He bounces all the time and is never tired. You know what drug does that to you? Ecstasy. Ever spent 5 minutes with someone on E?
Christopher Robin talks to animals. He’s probably on some hallucinogenic. Only a psychedelic trip will have you talking to animals…unless you’re Austin Stevens or some other white dude who makes a fortune sticking his fingers up wild animals’ butts.
As for Pooh himself, he loves his sweet stuff and has a rather wild imagination…LSD.
Owl is also there to help anyone who needs it. It only stands to reason that he’s their dealer.
You see, they don’t have mental disorders…they just like to party. Winnie the Pooh-arty animal and Friends!!! That’s more like it.
