Russian Winnie-the-Pooh (episode 1 of 3) with new translation: A. Milne's original text was used where it was a close match.
This is one of the best examples of Soviet animation, loved by children and adults alike. Only three episodes out of planned nine were completed, and you can watch them all here.

Below is "Winnie-Poohetry" for this episode:
I. Winnie-the-Pooh Sings Ditties [New]
If I scratch the back of my head, it's okay! There is only sawdust in it, yeah, yeah, yey! But although there's only sawdust, All these shouties & those screamies, And also the noisies, pantloudies and sighpuffies... I compose them rather nicely on some days! Yes.
Winnie-Pooh lives quite a good life in this land, That is why he sings these ditties all aloud! What he's doing doesn't matter, If he doesn't grow much thinner, And I know that he won't get there... If he doesn't skip the dinner... Yes.
II. It HAZZ to BEE for a Reason! [Original verses by A. Milne]
It's a very funny thought that If Bears were Bees, They'd build their nests at the bottom of trees.
Isn't it funny How a bear likes honey? Buzz-buzz-buzz! I wonder why he does?
III. Pooh and Piglet go to a Secret Place [New]
The place where we are going Is 'secret big and great, That we're not telling anyone Oh no, oh no... And... Yeah!
IV. Tut-tut, it looks like rain [Modified original version]
