Winnie the Pooh and friend

Here Samantha performs her world-famous beer impression although Winnie seems a little brassed off by it all.

We learnt that the bear of little brain character, Winnie The Pooh, was based on an encounter by A. A. Milne's sone with a bear at London Zoo many years ago. According to the official Pooh site, the original bear was an orphan brought up by the 2nd Canadian Infantry Brigade but left with the London Zoo in December 1914 as the troops passed through London on their way to war. The bear was left to stay at the zoo when the war ended, having settled in so well.
