Now, we have some, well, kind of disturbing news.
You know Winnipeg, the bear that inspired the stories we all know and love? Well, her skull will soon be on display for all to see.
"Oh, bother!" said Pooh. (Video via Disney / "Winnie the Pooh")
Yes, Winnipeg's skull will be at the Royal College of Surgeons' Hunterian Museum in London. The display is intended for those who want to learn more about the bear and the author A.A. Milne's collection of stories.
The curators had the skull in their collections but found it in a recent review.
Director of museums and archives Sam Alberti said, "Her story and presence in our collection are a reminder of how learning about animal health can enhance our understanding and care for species around the world."
Although Milne took some creative license in making Pooh a boy, the bear's obsession with honey was real.
The skull shows tooth decay that confirms Winnipeg did indeed love scarfing down the sticky, sweet stuff.
