    So, I was looking at a photo of the old Pooh costume, and wondered: How did the performer move both Pooh's face and arms? Pooh-at-the-Office.jpg

    The head wouldn't have been able to move independently. For Pooh to look left or right he'd have to turn his entire body.

    It is reminiscent of other older costumes, many costumes had 'fake arms' where the performer would just move them and not actually have their entire arm in the characters arm.
