“Pooh and his friends were given as gifts by author A. A. Milne to his son Christopher Robin Milne between 1920 and 1922. Pooh was purchased in London at Harrods for Christopher’s first birthday. Christopher later gave them to publisher E. P. Dutton, who in turn donated them to the New York Public Library.”
Oh my god. Oh my god.
This is them, guys. This is them. Got chills.

“It was not by design.It happened by accident for A Bug’s Life because we had no budget or time to create a human dwelling for one shot, and then go below and see all this trash and Bug City. We were really begging, borrowing and stealing. So we said, ‘Hey, why don’t we go all white trash with it, and just paint this camper?’ Then somebody went, ‘Well, we need a car parked out there, so why don’t we make it the Pizza Planet driver, because we’ve got the truck?’ And we said, ‘Ah, that’ll be great!’ That just started it going, and from then on we said, ‘Can we put it in again?’ It became a game after a while: how intertwined can we create this world to be?” - Andrew Stanton
