"Our first stop today is Christopher Robin's "Winnie-the-Pooh Character Guide",
where we'll re-familiarize ourselves with all the characters before embarking on
our Pooh odyssey. This site offers three different versions, so you can choose between
a low graphics version, a high graphics version with classic illustration or a high graphics
version with Disney illustration. Christopher Robin's Winnie-the-Pooh Character Guide
offers a detailed description of all the characters, from the infamous Pooh to the Heffalumps.
There is also a FAQ, so you can bone up on other Winnie-the-Pooh factoids."
