I hate Disney's Winnie-the-Pooh. Maybe it's just a sheer arrogance, that Disney's Pooh is not the "original" Pooh. Maybe it's just too mainstream. Maybe I think it's just simply lame, a reflection of today's generation's meaningless, consumer- driven lives (Julia Stiles, 10 Things I Hate About You).
Ouch! Whose shoe is this?
Anyway, I also think that Ernest Sheppard's illustration of Pooh is brilliant. It depicts the bear-with-a-very-little-brain very well. So I don't see any point on giving him a red shirt and other stuffs after that.
On the other hand, I don't like John Tenniel's illustration for Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. She looks like a 40 years old woman in a 6 years old girl body. Spooky, I think.
