The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh was an American Saturday morning cartoon television series produced by The Walt Disney Company, which was inspired by A. A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh stories for children and people of all ages.
The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh first aired in 1988 on Disney Channel. The show moved to ABC in the fall of that same year. After production was over in 1991, reruns continued to air on ABC until September 4, 1993. In 1996, when Disney took over ABC's One Saturday Morning programming, The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh was brought back in reruns, in which it aired until One Saturday Morning became ABC Kids in 2002. The Disney Channel began airing the series on October 3, 1994, and continued to air until September 1, 2006. The show also aired on Playhouse Disney from 1999 to 2006, as well as on Toon Disney from the channel's launch in 1998 until 2008. In the UK, the program aired from 2000 to 2011 on Playhouse Disney.
The show is currently airing on the Disney Channel in Czech Republic (in the Disney Junior block), Germany, India (also in the Disney Junior block), Russia, and Turkey, as well as on Disney Junior in Turkey.
In some countries outside of the US, notably Denmark, Poland, Russia, have aired this show on their versions of The Disney Afternoon (known as Disney Sjov in Denmark). It's one of various shows not to air on the Disney Afternoon block in the US but has aired in Disney Afternoon blocks in other countries.
