Changes in the Hundred Acre Wood

Disney is a'changin' the Hundred Acre Wood. Apparently, they have decided that Christopher Robin is just far too masculine to attract today's child:


You notice, however, that there is always the need to introduce a girl into stories like this. I don't see anyone suggesting that Madeline suddenly go co-ed, or that Alice in Wonderland should be changed to Alan in Wonderland.

Anyway, they say that the Pooh franchise brings in over $1 billion per year, more than all their other core characters combined. So, logically, one would expect them to not screw around with a winning forumla. But hey, now we know where all those "New Coke" executives wound up. . . .
