Owl is a character from A.A. Milne's "Winnie the Pooh" books, and is featured in many Disney productions. He is an owl, who is considered the oldest of all of the characters in the Hundred Acre Woods. Owl's character is obviously based on the stereotype of the "wise old owl", however, even though he is considered wise to the other characters, in reality, in he is not smart at all. He tends to speak using Received Pronunciation.
Owl was originally voiced by Hal Smith, with Andre Stojka taking over after Smith's death.
