Winnie-the-Pooh was created by the English author A. A. Milne. Inspired by a teddy bear his son owned, Milne wrote two volumes of short stories about Pooh and his adventures in Hundred Acre Wood. Milne also included his son, Christopher Robin as one of the main characters.
Disney bought the rights to Winnie-the-Pooh in 1966 and have since produced several films, tv series, video games and even a magazine based on the honey-loving bear.
