John Fiedler, the voice of Piglet passed away the day after  the voice of Tigger - Paul Winchell -- a sad week in Pooh history!!  He was only 80.  I have an autograph from him #1736.  He was born in Plateville, WI.  Incredibly, his total credits for playing Piglet were in twenty-three distinct different productions, several of those having multiple episodes.

 

Canada's History: Online Magazine

In honor of Winnie's 100th Anniversary August 2014, Nelle Oosterom of Canada's History Magazine wrote a very nice article about the orgins of Winnie the Bear and White River.  I am glad to see the word get out about the fact that Pooh really originated in Canada, then London and then Disney.
