“‘Pooh, promise you won’t forget about me, ever. Not even when I’m a hundred.’
Pooh thought for a little.
‘How old shall I be then?’
‘Ninety-nine.’
Pooh nodded.
‘I promise,’ he said.”

I don’t think there are many people who haven’t heard of the beloved Winnie-the-Pooh and Peter Pan, and no doubt that that is in large part thanks to the Disney company.
