It's time to take a journey through the Hundred Acre Woods with our favorite bear, Winnie the Pooh.
Each Character Represents a Different Mental Disorder
A tongue-in-cheek report by the Canadian Medical Association sparked a widely-shared theory that each Winnie the Pooh character symbolizes a certain mental disorder. The theory has been around since at least 2000, when the BBC released an article here. The following is a run-down of each disorder that the characters supposedly have.
It should be noted that this theory, along with similar ones like the SpongeBob seven sins theory, has been debunked (see this Snopes article for more information). That doesn't deter fans from finding new evidence to support it.
