  • show Description
  • The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh was a charming animated series that captured both kids and their parents with all-new outings featuring Pooh and the whole gang in the 100 Acre Wood. The world-famous bear, created by British author, A.A. Milne. He is joined by his young master, Christopher Robin. The ever-bouncy Tigger. The glum donkey, Eeyore. The incurable know-it-all, Rabbit. The always-confused Owl. The squeaky Piglet and the mother and son team of Kanga and Roo. Featuring quality animation along with original songs and scores, this series preserves the touching emotional qualities and "not just for kids" humor of the original Winnie the Pooh books. The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh was part of what many consider Disney's "Golden Age," meaning the studio had quality writers, characters, theme songs, etc. Some other shows during this time were Gummi Bears, Talespin, Ducktales, and Darkwing Duck Characters Winnie the Pooh: Winnie the Pooh is the fun-loving bear. He is very caring and concerned about all of his friends. Pooh is friends with everyone in the Hundred Acre Woods. Some of his very good companions are Christopher Robin and Piglet. Pooh also loves honey. Piglet: Piglet is the small Piglet with big hopes. He believes that even though he isn't very big, he can do what his friends do. When they all go on adventures, Piglet is a little frightened, but he goes anyway because he is a such a good friend and will try to overcome his fears. Rabbit: Rabbit can be a bit serious sometimes. He loves to plant gardens that are always eaten by some crows and accidentally bounced on by Tigger. Rabbit builds scarecrows to get rid of the crows, sometimes it works and other times it doesn't. He can give some good advice to his friends. Eeyore: Eeyore is the slow-moving donkey. He tries over and over to build his houses, but someone may bounce or fall on it. Other times the wind blows it down or the weather. He always has his friends to help him rebuild it though. Eeyore also has a tail that is pinned on that happens to fall off occasionally. Tigger: Tigger loves to bounce, he tries to bounce higher each time. His bouncing can break things if it gets a big wild. One of his good friends is Roo, he taught him about bouncing and its fun. Kanga: Kanga is Roo's mother. She is very nice to everyone in the Hundred Acre Woods. Kanga is always helping others, or offering some snacks that she may have baked. Roo: Roo's mother is Kanga. He likes to bounce like Tigger. When his friends come around, he usually comes along with them. He was very happy when he moved to the Hundred Acre Woods. One of his best friends is Tigger. Christopher Robin: Christopher Robin is a very nice, young boy. He likes taking his friends on adventures. When they may have a problem with something, he usually figures it out or helps them. He is very good friends with Pooh. Theme Song Gotta get up, I gotta get goin' I'm gonna see a friend of mine He's round and he's fuzzy I love him because He's just Pooh Bear, Winnie the Pooh Bear Lookin' for fun, chasin' some hunny bees Pooh Bear I know he's out there Rumblee tumblee, climin' a honey tree Fun never ends for us, we're so adventurous Least every now and again And when we're alone and there's nobody home It's nice to be able to count on a friend Like Pooh Bear, Winnie the Pooh Bear Wherever you go, oh won't you take me please Pooh Bear, I gotta be there It's me and it's you Silly old Winnie the Pooh...

    • Tigger: (puts on his costume) Behold! The Ultimate Terror! The ugliest, scariest thing in the world...! A VEGIBIBBLE! (he is dressed like a humongous, gigantic, jumbo-sized, giant carrot)

    • Pooh: All right, now remember, when the carrot comes, you'll frighten him into the hole... with the cymbals.
      Rabbit: (with earmuffs on his long ears) Eh, what?!
      Pooh: YOU'LL SCARE THE CARROT INTO THE HOLE!!!
      Rabbit: Okay, okay! No need to yell.

    • (Tigger and Roo push a mattress with springs sticking out to the edge of a cliff over a river to try and break Eeyore's fall)
      Tigger: There! (laughs) Right on the old bullseye!
      (Eeyore hits the mattress, but falls into the river with it)
      Tigger: Maybe not.
      (a loud splash is heard, and water splashes on Tigger and Roo; both cough)
      Tigger: Y'know, he sure swims a lot better than he bounces.

    • (while Tigger and Roo teach Eeyore to bounce...)
      Roo: Uh, Tigger?
      (they are very high up)
      Tigger: Boy. How did everything get so small down there?
      (Tigger and Roo hold onto Eeyore as he falls)
      Tigger: Abandon donkey!!
      (he and Roo let go, but Eeyore, with the springs still attached to his legs, continues bouncing)
      Roo: Grab his springs!
      (as Eeyore makes one last bounce, Tigger and Roo grab his springs, causing them to pry off of the gloomy donkey's legs; Eeyore floats even higher above the clouds)
      Tigger: Don't worry, kiddo! When ya come down, we'll be ready for ya!
      Eeyore: I can hardly wait. (falls) Tally-ho.

    • Piglet: Gopher, you can dig us outta here, can't you?
      Gopher: (digs through the top) Just a few more inches, and we'll hit fresh air.
      (unfortunately for him, he ends up underwater)
      Gopher: Or the bottom of a lake. (to the others) RUN!!!

    • Pooh: Oh my! This is terrible! My good friend Rabbit's run out of hunny and... (gasp) he's worried that I won't come visit him anymore! Eeyore: (bored voice) He is?

    • Tigger: (after Eeyore has splash-landed in the river) Y'know, he sure swims a lot better than he bounces.

    • Eeyore: Pooh if you don't mind- Pooh: Of course I don't mind, second-helpings are what happiness is all about!
