The Curse of Pooh

“Pooh would no doubt scratch his fluff-stuffed head in disbelief at what’s going on. Shirley and her daughter, Pati, are embroiled in an epic legal battle with the Walt Disney Co. over the merchandising rights to the world’s most beloved bear. Shirley’s former husband, Stephen Slesinger, acquired the merchandising rights to Winnie the Pooh in 1930 from his creator, A.A. Milne. After Slesinger died, Shirley granted the rights to Walt Disney himself.” —The Curse of PoohFortune [annoying pop-up])
