The Many Adventures of Winnie-the-Pooh (TMAoWtP) is an animated feture length film, originally released as a series of shorts. It is based on the famous stories by A.A. Milne, illustrated by Ernest Shepard.

Cast of Characters

Christopher Robin - a small boy, living in the hundred acre wood.

Quote: "Silly old bear"

Eeyore - the sad donkey. (Eeyore, Pooh and Christopher Robin are the only characters not named generically, such as Owl, Piglet, Rabbit, etc.)

Quote: "Thanks for noticing me"

Gopher - a lisping, whistling, burrowing, fidgety character.

Quote: "Can't give an estimate, too risky".

Kanga - Roo's momma. A calming influence and the only female character.

Quote: "Be careful dear."

Owl - a long-winded and pompous, but generally good-natured fellow.

Quote: "To distract your small mind from your unfortunate predicament, I will tell you an amusing anecdote"

Pooh - aka Winnie-the-Pooh, Edward Bear.

Quote: "Oh bother", "Oh Sutff n Fluff"

Piglet - a meek and amiable stuttering little chap.

Quote: "It is awfully hard to be brave, being such a small animal"

Rabbit - an impatient, "why me" sort of character. Very fastidious, and often annoyed with Tigger.

Quote: "Oh no, oh no, oh YEEEEESSSS!"

Roo - Kanga's baby

Quote: "Wheeeee"

Tigger - the constanly bouncing tiger.

Quote: "Tiggers don't jump, they bounce."



Tigger is very definite about a great number of things:

"Iceskating! That's what Tiggers do best!"

"Honey! That's what Tiggers like best!"

"Yech! Tiggers *don't* like honey!"

"Tiggers don't jump they *bounce*!"

Tigger always refers to "tiggerS" (plural) but he is the only one!


Although at the end of the movie, the narrator says that the animals don't understand what "ABCs" are, most of the characters can read, write or spell (at least somewhat):

Pooh says to Christopher Robin, "I think the bees S-U-S-P-E-C-T something."

Piglet has a sign outside his house that he points out, correctly, as reading "TRESSPASSERS WILL".

Eeyore points to the damages sign, which, after a storm, reads "TRESSPASSERS WIL" and says "W-O-L, that spells 'Owl'" (Owl replies, "Bless my soul, so it does!"

Piglet writes a message in a bottle, (in which he stutters) "Help!!! P-p-p-iglet (ME)"

Pooh's honey jars are all labelled.

Rabbit labels his garden vegetables, "Kerits", etc.

Tigger spells his name, to which Rabbit replies "Don't spell it, don't spell it!"

The Book

The movie is, of course, based on the Pooh books, and several of the characters in the movie are aware of this:

Tigger says "I almost bounced clear out of the book!", and "Who are you?" to the narrator.

Gopher: "He's sailing clear out of the book! Quick turn the page!"

..and others...
