Sweet if brief (it’s only 68 minutes long) stuff for really little ones as Winnie the Pooh’s kangaroo pal Roo befriends a loveable baby heffalump named Lumpy while the other residents of Hundred Acre Wood are under the misguided impression that heffalumps are evil.

Fans of AA Milne’s stories will know that Pooh never actually met a mythical heffalump, so it’s nice to finally see what one looks like (they’re pastel-coloured elephants), but otherwise there’s little here to enthral anyone but the most undemanding of small viewers. To make matters worse, over 900 children auditioned for the vocal role of Lumpy, and the child that was chosen (five-year-old Brit Kyle Stanger) mumbles throughout! There is a DVD spin-off, Pooh’s Heffalump Halloween Movie, which was made in the same year.
