Winnie the Pooh Gets Hollywood Star
Wed Apr 12, 10:05 AM
LOS ANGELES - Winnie the Pooh sure does love his honey, but the beloved bear now has something just as sweet: a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The children's character, created in the 1920s by British author A.A. Milne, was joined Tuesday at the star's unveiling by his Hundred Acre Wood pals Tigger, Eeyore and Rabbit.
Pooh debuted as a cartoon character in the 1966 Disney featurette "Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree," and went on to star in dozens of films, specials and several cartoon series.
"I know that Winnie would react to all this fanfare by simply saying, `Oh bother," said Robert Iger, CEO of The Walt Disney Co. "But, Winnie, you really are worth a bother."
Milne named Pooh after a stuffed bear owned by his son Christopher Robin Milne.
The ceremony coincided with the DVD release of 1997's "Pooh's Grand Adventure: The Search for Christopher Robin," which marks the bear's 80th anniversary.
