Winnie The Pooh- Psychological Disorders

Who would of ever thought that psychological disorders are in so many places; in some child TV shows such as Winnie the Pooh, psychological disorders are more than obvious. Most of you did not realize or process the fact that Winnie the Pooh is based off of more than 5 psychological disorders. The impulsivity of Rabbit and the obsession of Rabbit always protecting it's carrots clearly shows that Rabbit suffered Obsessive compulsive disorder. The constant phobias and fearful attitude of piglet showed that piglet suffered from anxiety. Tigger's hyperactivity and failure to calm down depicts Attention deficit hyper-active disorder. Pooh's disorder is not to agreed upon, but it can be said that Pooh has an eating disorder, from all of the honey that he eats. Eyore's constant sadness and low self-esteem signifies depression. It is not to clear, but it can be argued, in my opinion, that Christopher has schizophrenia because of the delusions that he has of all of the animals talking and having personalities and living ordinary lives. It is truly amazing how a show that a lot of people watched as children can have so much psychology, and most people not even notice it. This is one of those examples that shows that psychology is everywhere and it can be discovered in the smallest of things. Maybe when winnie the pooh was written, it was intended for the author to get a point out about the importance of psychology and its disorders. Maybe, this whole theme of psychological disorders was an accident, but whatever the reason for so many disorders to be showed in one TV show alone, it shows how vast psychology is and how it can account for explaining so many abnormalities that people are not to knowledgable of. I personally, as a kid enjoyed watching winnie the pooh and the fact that each character had such a different personality amused me. I think that this is the reason for the success of that show and the reason that it has so much to it.
