Winnie the Pooh Discovers the Seasons is an educational short film made by The Walt Disney Company, released to schools on September 6, 1981.
Christopher Robin presents Pooh with an interesting new gift—a calendar. Pooh has never seen one before, and Christopher Robin explains that it's a way of keeping track of the days, weeks, months and seasons. The calendar stops at each season, as we watch Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Rabbit and Owl in the Hundred Acre Wood exploring the world around them and noticing the changes. Among them: the water in the pond becomes hard and slick when it gets cold.
This was the first animated Disney short to use Hanna-Barbera sound effects (aside from some of their late 70's live-action films that used a couple for cheesy humor like Herbie Rides Again). Since then, they only used the sound effects for their television specials and shows, while they continued to use their classic Jim McDonald cartoon sound effects until The Great Mouse Detective in 1986 for their theatrical shorts and films.
