A.A. Milne son named his stuffed bear Winnie after the black bear he saw at the zoo (pictured above.) So, if you think about it, Vinni Pukh looks more like the real deal. BAM.

While American Pooh seems to be in denial of who he really is.

Art on the right by toxicness.

2. Everything about Vinni is adorable, like his paws that aren't actually attached to his body.

Meanwhile, Pooh's greatest visual quirk is a crop top.

5. Vinni even gets existential.

While all the pop culture references in the American episode titles probably go way over Pooh's head.

But Pooh of USA is friends with Tigger, who is literally always knocking him down.

He's the equivalent of that friend of yours who always gets too drunk and makes you question why you go out with them, every time.

10. Vinni's motivations resemble yours to a startling degree.

But American Pooh follows the rules and even accepts punishment for things that are Tigger's fault. Who in real life wants to do that?

Ugh, Tigger ruins EVERYTHING.

11. Vinni Pukh says what we're all thinking, no matter how non-politically correct:

While Disney Pooh is, like, always happy. No one's that happy.

Someone just robbed him of all his honey and he's just smiling like nothing happened. Weirdo!

12. Vinni even touches upon the societal pressure to lose weight.

Meanwhile, Pooh just swims in some honey like it's no big deal.

13. Piglet is inarguably more fashion-forward.

Eeyore <3.

Disney Pooh's friends just always look stressed out.

15. Vinni Pukh has his own postage stamp (and while he doesn't have as many stamps as Winnie the Pooh, his is by far more aesthetically-pleasing.)

And Yevgeny Leonov, the famed Moscow Stanislavsky actor who voiced Pukh, has an epic stamp of his own.

In short, Vinni Pukh is perfect and you're a fool not to love him.
