Winnie the Pooh and friends play Pooh Sticks.




"Poohsticks is a sport first mentioned in The House at Pooh Corner, a Winnie-the-Pooh book by A. A. Milne. It is a simple sport which may be played on any bridge over running water; each player drops a stick on the upstream side of a bridge and the one whose stick first appears on the downstream side is the winner. The annual World Poohsticks Championships have been held at Day's Lock on the River Thames in the UK, since 1984"

The above video is from the original 1983 version of Winnie the Pooh. The following version is from the more recent Winnie the Pooh cartoon but it's the same story.
