The Littlest Dinosnore: Pooh and the others head off on an expedition, but leave Roo behind, telling him that he's too small and it might be dangerous. This makes Roo feel sad and small, but Tigger decides to stay with Roo to help cheer him up. Tigger tells Roo a tall tale about a creature in "prehysterical times" known as "the little dinosnore."
