What is pooh baseball?

a few years ago, 4chan’s /v/ board discovered a game about playing baseball with Winnie the Pooh characters on Disney’s Japanese website

the thing about this game was that it was insanely difficult. the “normal” characters in the game’s earlier levels required pretty precise timing to hit their pitches, and as you progressed through the games levels and made it to characters like tigger and owl the game flat-out started cheating. tigger’s pitches would zig-zag in mid-air, owl’s pitches would turn invisible halfway through and you had to hit them on pure timing alone, and so on. it was insanely hard and everyone was enamored by it. why is this winnie the pooh game for babies insanely hard, requiring reaction times that almost seemed inhuman?

then people beat all of those characters and made it to christopher robin. christopher robin was next to impossible to beat. he incorporated every previous character’s throwing quirks and would switch them up with every pitch. he would sometimes even combine them, like pitching invisible screwballs. you couldn’t defeat him. 

everyone on /v/ loved this game. it gelled perfectly with the internet’s sense of humor at the time. people would photoshop christopher robin’s face on meteors with winnie the pooh preparing to bat the meteor out of the sky. fancomics were drawn. christopher robin became an angry god hell-bent on destroying everything in his path, winnie the pooh became earth’s last hero standing in defiance of the gods. it was insane. all because of this weird, insanely difficult japanese winnie the pooh baseball game.

reasons why “the baseball game” is the best song in falsettos
  • all the adults are so supportive even though jason isn’t great at baseball
  • especially mendel like!!!!!! he’s so hopeful that jason will have a good game!! it’s so sweet
  • “it’s weird how he swings the bat… and why does he have to throw like thaattt?”
  • poor trina is so over it by the time whizzer shows up
  • whizzer’s leather jacket/sunglasses look™
  • “i love baseball! i love jason! that’s what i’m doing here”
  • the lesbians’ commentary throughout the whole song (“that kid was out!” “that kid was safe!”)
  • similarly: “see? that’s how it’s supposed to look”
  • “is he still queer?” *exasperated* “i don’t know”
  • marvin trying to flirt??? i mean????? he literally forces everyone to switch seats so he can look at whizzer’s head,,,,,,
  • “you’re looking sweeter than a donut” (i mean???? what the hell marvin)
  • “hey, jason!” “oh, hi whizzer! glad you came!” (this is adorable)
  • the entirety of the “keep your head in the box…” part (it’s so cute how the adults all echo whizzer)
  • every single harmony (aka “slide, jason! slide, jason! SLIIIIIDDDEEE” and “anYTHING’s POSSIBLE JASON!!!”)
  • “hey, jason, you gotta stand a little closer to the plate!”
  • the background music is so cute and happy
  • whizzvin reunited
  • jason hitting the ball and making everyone so proud (even though he forgets to run)!!!
  • it’s probably one of the happiest songs in the whole musical and i love it so much

feel free to add more!!!!!

Hey. I can’t hear the Japanese guy picking names audio on tumblr. You posted it anywhere else? 

Here you go, I assume you were talking about the Japanese Baseball Names post.         

my team: *loses*

me: terrible. we’re the worst team we’re never gonna win ever again. the defense is trash. the offense is trash. ill see all of you next year and maybe they’ll learn how to play by then.
