"E" is for EEYORE - A to Z April Challenge [2015]

So what can we say about Disney? Holds a special place in some of our hearts, for the villains or heroes and or the beautiful look. I hope to share a little bit of everything in the days coming, maybe things you forgot about, maybe not and being part of the Co-hosting for A to Z Challenge we all remember Tina... a dear friend and sweet lady.

Please stop back throughout the challenge, can I encourage you to start following me on Google + and be a member. I promise to give you posts here on why we are all a little "Hollywood Nuts"! -Jeremy [Retro]

Eeyore appears in the Winnie the Pooh cartoons popularized by The Walt Disney Company. He is somewhat less caustic and sarcastic in the Disney version than in Alan Milne's original stories. Though often a supporting character, Winnie the Pooh and a Day for Eeyore focuses on him. He is physically one of the stronger animals and is often treated as a pack animal whenever a plot calls for one. His house is regularly knocked down, but he always rebuilds it. He usually expects misfortune to happen to him, accepts it when it does and rarely even tries to prevent it. His catchphrases are "Thanks for noticin' me" and "Ohhh-kayyy".

Despite his depressive nature, Eeyore is capable of great compassion, whereas in the books he is more apathetic. Several episodes of The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh episodes exemplify this, including "Donkey for a Day", "Stripes", "Home is Where the Home is" and "Eeyi Eeyi Eeyore". Eeyore is usually one of the core group of animals, along with Pooh, Piglet, Rabbit and Tigger. Of these five, he is the most reluctant to go along with their plans or adventures, but does not oppose them because he believes it to be futile to try.

  1. Eeyore is my favourite Pooh character because of his incorrigibly glum nature. He's got deadpan down to a fine art!

  3. I love Eeyore, well the Disney version at least - he is just so wonderfully accepting and keeps plodding on no matter how mad the situation Pooh gets him into is :).

  4. I didn't know his name! Such a lovely lil' donkey! I hear shepherds in Germany use them to guard their sheep because wolves and predators hate the alarming sound they make :)

  5. I remember Eeyore! ☺ Yes, he always had that dour expression. Thanks for the memory.

  6. What I like about Eeyore is while he may be glum he is actually pretty strong. Whatever life hands him he takes action--ie he rebuilds his house--rather than just complain and whine. Comes through for his friends when they need him.

  7. I just want to give him a big hug to cheer him up!

    Good luck with the 2015 A to Z Challenge!

  9. I absolutely love Eeyore (we are a bit too much alike), but he's the saving grace for the whole Pooh-verse (and the highlight of the Winnie the Pooh ride at Disney World)!

  10. It's fascinating that they changed the character for the movies, and I'm assuming it won't be long before they change him so he's not depressed like they did with Mr. Snuffleupagus.

  11. You just lit up my day with those drawing of Eeyore. My sister is nuts about him. When I last went to Disneyland she had her list (a long one) of Eeyore stuff she wanted. Like an crazed Elvis fan… hahahaha.

    Fun E post - thanks for taking me down memory lane.

  12. Eeyore was my favorite character on Winne the Pooh! :) I thought he was so cute.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Such a sweetie, Eeyore. I always wanted to hug him to bit.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I always found him to be such a sad character with something really lonely about it.

  15. In first grade (1965?), we all collected erasers that came out of some kid product (I actually want to say it was Pop Tarts...). Winnie the Pooh was the theme and all the little girls wanted to get a pink Piglet pencil topper eraser. In an amazing feat of skewing statistics, I got Eeyore every single time. Thus, I was crushed, didn't get into the Piglet "in" group, and was forever damaged.

    Fifty years later, and I'm still complaining about that dern Eeyore.

  16. Eeyore draws our compassion. We just naturally want to do or say something to make him smile. :-)

  17. Eeyore needs some Lyrica or some other happy juice. Sheldon must have a stuffed Eeyore lying around

  18. Everybody loves Eeyore, Such a spirit really easy to identify with.

  19. I've always loved Eeyore. He's so bored sounding, but loveable all the same. I think he's really just so laid back that he's misunderstood. Thanks for hosting the A2Z fun!

  20. One of my first American English teachers was a huge Eeyeore fan, she always carried a plush one around. My favorite has always been Tigger :D

  21. Eyore definitely wasn't one of my favourites.

    ReplyDelete
  22. No use trying! Fun is happening all the time! Cute post. I'm a piglet fan from way back.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Tigger for me if we're looking at Winnie the Pooh - I want to give Eeyore a shake and get him motivated! Read back through the A-E, love Beauty and The Beast :) x

  24. Love the old Disney classics - I still recall going to the cinema to watch Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. Sheer magical stuff.

    Personally I think Pooh is a pot head, Tigger is on Speed and Eeyore is on Prozac. Though, I could be wrong?

    Happy E Day, buddy :)

  25. I always loved Eeyore and always hoped he would cheer up one day. I haven`t deserted Winnie the Pooh, but I have become a big fan of Paddington Bear.

  26. Growing up, Eeyore was one of the few characters I could relate to. I was a very depressed child. Looking back, having overcome depression, I feel a lot of sympathy for him, understanding how trapped he is.

    In 2014 for AtoZ I discussed Learned Helplessness, and Eeyore fits the definition very well. Today I released an article on the Ego, Id, and Super-Ego and discuss defense mechanisms and it appears that this is what Eeyore is doing. In many ways, it seems he wants to be depressed. As bad as that sounds, when I was wrong up, I had been depressed for so long, I didn't want to be anything else, I just accepted it. Its scary when you get to that level of depression. It becomes a defense mechanism.

    1. "when I was wrong up"

  28. Eeyore has such an expressive face, he looks as if he has the weight of the world on his drooping shoulders! You have to adour him!

  29. Eeyore always seemed so sad to me. I remember feeling sorry for him as a kid.

    Viewing the drawings just brought back another strange memory. A distant relative of mine was one of the original artist who created or drew Woody Woodpecker. I remember my grandparents taking us on trips to Warner Brothers as a child. I just sent text messages to my older sisters (the historians of our family) asking for more details, but didn't get a response in time to write this comment. I vaguely remember all of those trips, but we always walked away with a bunch of free Woody Woodpecker memorabilia. I realize this has nothing to do with your post today, but your post prompted the memory and now I am very curious to learn more.

    I enjoyed your post about Eeyore.

  30. I love Eeyore. The drawings are really cool.

  31. I like Eeyore, but having just read Animal Farm I'm wondering why donkeys are always seen as the serious animals. Most of the donkeys I've met have seemed pretty appy to me, although I always bring them carrots which may help!

  32. Visiting you from A to Z Challenge! Eeyore's a fun character, because he's such a foil to everyone else in the 100 Acres. He's kind of like Marvin in Hitchhiker's Guide. Maui Jungalow

  33. Wasn't much of a tail anyway.

  35. Tigger was always my favorite, Eeyore was cute but just too blue for my optimistic young self.

  36. I was never a big fan of Eeyore. He's just too sad for me :( Great post though!

  37. I've always had a soft spot for Eeyore.

  39. Thank you for your visit to my blog.
    I prefer Milne's original stories to the Disney versions of Winnie the Pooh, and I think I have a lot in common with Eeyore. :-)

  40. I love how innocent Eyore is portrayed :D beautiful sketches.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Eeyore was actually my favorite Whinnie the Pooh character. We tease each other in my house when someone starts to get down in the dumps. We say, "Someone's as grey as Eeyore." It generally brightens that person back up because it brings back wonderful childhood memories of Pooh bear.

  42. Totally love Winnie the Pooh, the books more than the Disney versions but enjoy both. Favourite character has to be Tigger. The sketches are lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  43. "Thanks for noticin' me..."
    Gotta love him.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Very cool post. It's funny when Tigger pounces him.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Eeyore is my very favorite character from the hundred-acre wood! I love that he just is who he is, despite his depressive bearing he never actually complains. He just accepts that things don't work out all the time. <3 Eeyore! thanks for giving him his own post !

  46. My mother used to say, whenever anything went wrong, "It's a thankless job, Eeyore." Cracked me up, because all I could see was some one of the "Pooh" characters pinning his poor tail back on every time she said that. Piglet was my fav in "Pooh" land. I read those books over and over, and my kids watched the series narrated by Sebastian Cabot, which in my opinion, was the best version. Lisa, co-host AtoZ 2015, @ http://www.lisabuiecollard.com

  47. Eeyore is my favorite. I remember a line from him in "Pooh Sticks." He's floating in the water, under the bridge, and says, "I like turning, especially around."
