Apocalypse Pooh

Pooh has been bugging me all week to post this. I tried telling him that it was really more of a Disney Pooh thing than anything to do with the real Milne Pooh but he's having none of it. With that in mind I present it to you now. It really is only gonna make sense to anyone who's seen both Apocalypse Now and Winnie-the-Pooh. Also, I personally feel that the degraded film quality really adds to the whole experience (especially at the end).

Boy, that takes me back. "Apocalypse Pooh" has been around longer than the internet. I remember Dan Clowes plugging it in an early issue of Eightball.

Yeah. I'd never heard of it but someone at a recent Child_lit dinner mentioned that it existed. The VHS quality gave away its age, methinks.

Fuse, I was cleaning up some old saved bookmarks and realized I had this among them. I picked up this video in LA back in 1989 and in addition to "Apocalypse Pooh" there's a trailer for "Blue Beanuts" which blends a Peanuts cartoon with "Blue Velvet" AND a music video where a musical segment from the Archies cartoon show is overdubbed with the Sex Pistols singing "God Save the Queen (No Future)".

For what it's worth, all these months later...
