WATCH: The Christopher Robin Trailer Is Here
Andrew Parker - April 4, 2018

Smart

By Shel Silverstein

My dad gave me one dollar bill
'Cause I'm his smartest son,
And I swapped it for two shiny quarters
'Cause two is more than one!


And then I took the quarters
And traded them to Lou
For three dimes -- I guess he didn't know
That three is more than two!


Just then, along came old blind Bates
And just 'cause he can't see
He gave me four nickels for my three dimes,
And four is more than three!

And then I took the nickels to Hiram Coombs
Down at the seed-feed store,
And the fool gave me five pennies for them,
And five is more than four!


And then I went and showed my dad,
And he got red in the cheeks
And closed his eyes and shook his head --
Too proud of me to speak!

You may know Christopher Robin as the childhood friend of Winnie the Pooh, or you may know him from that tear-jerking Kenny Loggins song that is as beautiful as it is emotional. Either way, Christopher is back in a new live action film to ease our nostalgic desires, and to inspire a brand new generation of kids with its warm-hearted energy.

All of our favorite lovable characters are back in some form or another to provide us with advice, adventure, and of course, friendship. The movie features a grown up Christopher Robin who struggles with the balance between work, family, and life. Disney recently released the minute-long trailer, and although it’s short, it contains more than enough emotion to tug at the heartstrings of any and all self-proclaimed 90s kids.

It’s always nice to be reminded of the simpler things in life that can fill us with some much emotion and so many wonderful memories. Christopher Robin is sure to be a movie that will be adored by all generations, for generations to come.
