Christopher Robin Gets A Sex Change

Political Correctness in the Hundred Acre Wood:

POOR Christopher Robin. For 80 years there has been an enchanted place on the top of the forest where a little boy and his bear would always be playing.

But though Winnie the Pooh became a hugely successful brand, Christopher Robin just wouldn't sell.

"There's only one thing to be done," said the executives at Disney, and replaced him with a six-year-old girl.

Among the frantic merchandising activities laid on to mark the 80th anniversary of Hundred Acre Wood, Disney has commissioned an animated series My Friends Tigger and Pooh.
