In 1981, Disneyland was sued by the family of a nine-year-old girl, claiming that a performer in a Winnie the Pooh suit had hit her in the face, causing brain damage. The performer defended himself in court by wearing the costume and demonstrating that he was unable to hit anyone.

During WWI, a Canadian soldier smuggled his bear ‘Winnipeg’ into Britain, and she later became an attraction at a London Zoo. A boy named Christopher Robin Milne loved ‘Winnie’ so much that he named his own teddy after her, inspiring his father to write stories about a silly old bear who loves honey.
