This Date in Sixtiness

Prez Emeritus Tom Sito, who is the fount of most useful knowledge, says:

Dec 20, 1968- "My Pooh Bear, it certainly is a blustery day..."

Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day premiered on a bill with The Horse in the Grey Flannel Suit. It won the oscar for best animated short, which was awarded posthumously to Walt Disney, who had died the year before. ...

This first of the Pooh featureless follows the Milne books closely, and is generally considered the best of the first three featureless, which were later combined into a feature.

Wooly Reitherman directs, and scripted by Larry Clemmons, Ralph Wright, Julius Svendson and Vance Gerry. The Nine Old Men animate Winnie and his cohorts with their usual skill and aplomb.
