The Right Side

"The Right Side" is a song from the Welcome to Pooh Corner Cable TV series which premiered in 1983 on the Disney Channel (which was also that channel's inaugural season). The song was written by the Academy Award winning songwriting duo Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman. The Sherman Brothers also wrote the majority of famous Winnie the Pooh songs including songs like, "The Wonderful Thing About Tiggers" and "Heffalumps and Woozles" from the 1960s. In 2000, the Sherman Brothers also famously wrote the score to The Tigger Movie.

History of the song

This song was originally written in 1961 or 1962 for the Sherman Brothers' score for Mary Poppins. The song (along with many others) was cut from the motion picture but was used, nineteen years after Poppins premiered, in Welcome to Pooh Corner in 1983.

Song placement

New episodes played from 1983-1986 in the first run. Reruns continued to air until 1997. The Sherman Brothers wrote five songs, one for each of the major characters to sing, repeatedly each week. A storyline would "belong" to one character and at the end of an episode, the appropriate character would sing his "lesson song".

About the song

"The Right Side" is sung by Winnie-the-Pooh. In the song, Pooh explains how he makes the best out of a bad situation.
