Comedy legend John Cleese has mocked the paltry royalty payments he receives for narrating Winnie the Pooh.

The 80-year-old actor jokingly hit out at the 19 cents payments he takes in for his voice work on the 2011 Disney movie - which had a budget of €27 million ($29 million) and made €45 million ($49 million) worldwide at the box office.

John tweeted: ''In these difficult times, the arrival of residuals boosts my morale. Today I received royalties from 'The Adventures of Winnie the Pooh': $0.20.''

It wasn't the only movie the Fawlty Towers star blasted for a low payment, as he took a swipe at 2003 comedy sequel Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle.

He wrote: ''Even better, from Charlie's Angels - Full Throttle: $3.81.''

Finally, he added: " Where shall I celebrate tonight? I know! My room!"
