Watch where you step, there's Pooh on the Walk of Fame

winnie the poohWinnie the Pooh, the silly ol' bear of very little brain who first came to life in the 1920s in a series of books by A.A. Milne and later became a Disney icon and a permanent fixture in the subconscious of toddlers everywhere, was honored with a star on the Walk of Fame yesterday. According to reports, Pooh was also joined by Eeyore, Tigger and Rabbit. Apparently Piglet, Owl, Kanga, and Roo couldn't care less about their pal. Way to be supportive, guys. Geesh.

Pooh first hit the big screen in 1977's The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. Over the next several years this was followed by about eighty-gajillion more movies, TV specials, videos and TV series such as Welcome to Pooh Corner, The Book of Pooh, and The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. He was originally voiced by the inimitable Sterling Halloway, who passed away in 1992. In subsequent years Pooh's voice was provided by voice actor Jim Cummings.

How about C-Rob? The only human in the bunch and not only does he get no Walk of Fame love, he doesn't even get mention by TVSquad as a noteworthy snub? What's a guy have to do to get a little respect around here?

I highly recommend checking out "Comic Book: The Movie", if only to see Jim Cumming drinking absinthe and babbling about the "green fairy." Because it's even more trippy when you realize he's Pooh Bear.
