* ADogNamedDog: Piglet, Owl, and Rabbit. Played with for Kanga, Roo, and Tigger. Even Pooh is sometimes referred to as "Bear". It's pointed out in the book that his real name is Edward Bear, and Winnie-the-Pooh is just his nickname.

His father got the name "Winnie" from a popular bear at the London Zoo.)

Creator/AAMilne. The original book of stories was, famously, inspired by Milne's son Christopher Robin Milne and Christopher's assortment of stuffed animals, including a teddy bear that became Winnie-the-Pooh, a tiger that became Tigger, and a donkey that became Eeyore. Pooh and his friends live in the Hundred Acre Wood, itself inspired by Ashdown Forest in Sussex, where Milne had a cottage. Pooh, his friends, and his best friend Christopher Robin have many adventures.

* StockAnimalDiet: Honey for Pooh. Many of the other animals also eat one food almost exclusively - "haycorns" for Piglet, thistles for Eeyore, [[spoiler: Roo's extract of malt]] for Tigger, etc, although they don't match the normal foods for their species.
