Apocalypse Pooh is a short film created by Canadian comedian, Todd Graham that is credited as one of the earliest examples of a Mashup video.[2] The film combines key scenes from Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now with the Disney cartoons in the Winnie-the-Pooh series. Because of the obvious violation in copyright laws created by splicing the source materials together, the film was never given a genuine commercial presentation. Apocalypse Pooh reached a cult-like status in underground film groups based solely on the depth and scope of the bootleg video circuit.[3]

History[edit]

Graham created Apocalypse Pooh in 1987 while attending OCAD University. Despite receiving little recognition in Canada, the arts-base, The Kitchen in New York embraced and showcased the piece.[4] The film was distributed through underground tape-trading exchanges and advertised as part of short films on the back of Film Threat or Psychotronic magazine.[5] A digitally remastered version of the film was completed and released online by producer Brad Bell in 2010. [6]
