Welcome to the Tempered Fables, my name is N.T. Cloever. Come, sit by the fire; Let me tell you a story.Tempered Fables
I love this word. Narrator.
The first image that comes to mind is the Hundred Acre Wood, with John Cleese’s warm voice narrating the introduction.
This could be the room of any small boy, but it just happens to belong to a boy named Christopher Robin. Like most small boys, Christopher Robin has toy animals to play with, and they all live together in a wonderful world of make-believe. But his best friend is a bear called Winnie the Pooh, or Pooh, for short. Now, Pooh had some very unusual adventures, and they all happened right here in the Hundred-Acre Wood.
It’s meant to be a children’s show. For kids. With a narrator like that, anyone can enjoy it! I love looking back at WInnie the Pooh cartoons sometimes. They’re just so wholesome.
