Winnie the Pooh | Fan Theories Wiki | Fandom

https://fantheories.fandom.com/wiki/Winnie_the_Pooh



I have a different take, which is that each character represents different emotions, possibly related to Christopher Robin.

Tigger:  Exuberance
Piglet:  Fear
Owl:  Pride.
Eeyore:  Sadness.
Pooh:  Happiness or hope.  Friendship.
Kanga:  Caring or empathy.
Roo:  Joy.

I wrote this on Facebook 5 years ago

Human evolution has favored groups because if you are not a 700-pound grizzly bear, there is safety in numbers. Groups work better if people cooperate in them, and generally aren't trying to hurt each other. To this end, people have a natural tendency to believe in something higher than themselves, whether it be God, or country, or family. Belief in something higher than oneself will cause a person to act not in his own self-interest, but in the interest of the group.

It's a good Calvin & Hobbes fan strip. It's real good! : TwilightZone

https://www.reddit.com/r/TwilightZone/comments/eju7rc/its_a_good_calvin_hobbes_fan_strip_its_real_good/

In case you didn't know, this is a take-off on...


It is a 1961 Twilight Zone episode about a small child with god-like powers who terrorizes a small town.

I read the original science fiction short story before I saw the Twilight Zone episode that was adapted from it.  When they remade the TV Twilight Zone Series in the early 2000s, they did a sequel to the original episode 40 years later.  Bill Mummy reprised his role as the "monster" with god-like powers, and Cloris Leachman reprised her role as his mother.  I thought that this was a brilliant idea.


Ironically, another 20 years have passed.  There is yet another new Twilight Zone series on CBS All Access.  It is time for another sequel.  It could set a record for having a 60-year story arc.  Bill Mummy is still alive, although Cloris Leachman died in January from a combination of stroke and COVID.  She played in "The Croods" animated movie that I liked and the very recently released "The Croods 2: A New Age."
