Alan Alexander "A.A." Milne, was an English writer, who created Winnie the Pooh. He based the characters on his young son (Christopher Robin Milne) and his stuffed animals. Because of Disney's involvement in Pooh's popularity, the lovable bear has overshadowed much of Milne's other work and career. However, Milne's name is mentioned in the credits of every Pooh related movie and series.

He was also mentioned in the 2013 Disney biography film, Saving Mr. Banks.
