Arriving today on Blu-ray for the first time is Walt Disney Home Entertainment's 2004 direct-to-video Winnie the Pooh: Springtime With Roo, featuring the bonus feature "Get Up And Dance!" - Spring into the holiday spirit and dance to songs form the movie. There is also a free Springtime With Roo Mobile inside every Blu-ray Combo Pack.

The Charles Dickens’s classic, A Christmas Carol, gets the Disney spin in Winnie the Pooh: Springtime With Roo. Everybody, especially little Roo, in the Hundred Acre Wood is looking forward to spring when Rabbit dresses up like the Easter Bunny and gives out gifts, but Rabbit has decided to skip this year and have a "Spring Cleaning Day" instead.

To change Rabbit's thoughts about Easter, the narrator and Tigger drag Rabbit out of the storybook and travel back in time to the previous year's Easter celebration, a time where Rabbit loved the holiday. Sadly, it is going to take more than just flipping back a few chapters to show Rabbit the true meaning of Easter.

Winnie the Pooh has been entertaining kids and adults for generations. Over the years, Disney has released many direct-to-videos Winnie the Pooh titled, including Springtime With Roo, which features several cute new songs, as well as an "egg-stravaganza" on the Blu-ray disc. Though the 65-minute movie lacks the charms of the 60s' and 70s' Pooh adventures, Springtime With Roo is still a delightful entry in the franchise. It would make a great Easter gift this year for a child or adult.
