C.R. Canned In Pooh-Bear Layoff

I'm not sure if Christopher Milne is rolling in his grave or finally happy (since he was never quite at ease being "Christopher Robin" once he grew up), but he's being bumped from the world of Winnie-the-Pooh.

USA Today has the full story.

My cynical side insists that I point out that the Winnie-the-Pooh brand has been very popular with girls for the last decade or so (up to tweens), and so this looks to me like a way to strengthen that identity. Though making the new character six will not help with the upper end of that age range...
