  • Lucy Ricardo, despite her husband Ricky's wishes, tries out for a commercial for a product to be advertised on his show: Vitameatavegamin. Use of the product repeatedly, with its high alcohol content, results in her getting extremely drunk, and she wanders onto the show proper (broadcast live), making a fool of Ricky and herself.2
  • July 4. Daffy Duck attempts to sell an insurance policy to Porky Pig. Porky initially declines, but after Daffy is repeatedly injured trying to injure him, Porky agrees, and signs up for the policy. The policy has very strict conditions, which coincidentally occur (Porky gets a black eye by a rampaging herd of elephants in his home with a baby zebra, on the 4th of July, between 3:55 and 4:00pm, during a hail storm), earning Porky a million dollars.3

  • August 22-25. Christopher Robin, at his job as Efficiency Manager at Winslow Luggage, is forced to consider cutting the company's costs by 20% to forestall shutting down, requiring him to choose who to fire. He lets his wife Evelyn and daughter Madeline know he can't join them for the weekend in Sussex, and they go without him. Shortly after his family departs, his childhood friend, whom he had forgotten was real, the animated stuffed bear Winnie the Pooh, appears. Pooh had found his way to London while searching for his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood. Christopher Robin brings Pooh to Suffolk, and reluctantly enters the wood. There he falls out with Pooh, but finds the rest of his old friends (Eeyore, Tigger, Piglet, Rabbit, Roo, Kanga, and Owl), and allows his imagination to thrive to gain their trust. They find Pooh, and Christopher Robin returns to Suffolk, where he runs into his family before heading back to London. Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, and Eeyore meet Madeline while hoping to return important papers to Christopher, and she joins them on a madcap adventure to get to London. Evelyn goes after her. Christopher joins Evelyn in looking for Madeline, running into Pooh and the others. Christopher gets an idea about how to make the company profitable (giving people paid holidays), and no one loses their job. The Robins and their friends return to Suffolk and meet the rest of the gang in the Hundred Acre Wood.4
