!Main Cast


[[folder:Winnie the Pooh]]
!!'''Winnie The Pooh'''
[[caption-width-right:339:''"…Tubby little cuddly all stuffed with fluff, he's Winnie the Pooh, Winnie the Pooh, willy-nilly-silly old bear!"'']]

->''[[{{Catchphrase}} Oh bother.]]''

The title and main character. A naive and soft-spoken teddy bear who lives in the trunk of a tree under the name of 'Sanders' written over his door. He utterly loves "hunny" and his home is filled with "hunny" pots of all sizes.

* BearyFriendly: Benevolent, loyal friend, especially to Christopher Robin and Piglet.
* BearyFunny: A Bear of Very Little Brains, his naivety and appetite is the source of much comedy.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Despite his rather clueless and docile demeanor, he cares a lot about Piglet.
* BigEater: Especially if honey's involved, though anything sweet will do.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass
* {{Determinator}}: On occasion, most notably in ''Pooh's Grand Adventure''.
* EarlyBirdCameo: In 1924, one full year before the first Pooh story was written (and two years before the first full book was published), Pooh appeared in the book ''When We Were Very Young,'' as the main character in the poem ''[[ Teddy Bear]].'' Throughout most of the poem, he's simply referred to as "Teddy Bear" or "Teddy," but in the later stages of the poem, he's directly addressed as "Mr. Edward Bear," which of course is Pooh's original name.
* [[FourTemperamentEnsemble Five Temperament Ensemble]]: Phlegmatic
* FurryReminder: To ''stuffed animals'', no less. Pooh's stitches will sometimes burst at the seams, and at other times his head will do a 270 degree turn before returning to its base position.
* GeniusDitz: He writes spur-of-the-moment songs and poetry for the fun of it, completely unaware that from a literary standpoint he would be considered quite skilled. None of the other characters have this talent, and Eeyore's attempt to emulate it inevitably falls flat.
* TheHero
* HeterosexualLifePartners: His relationship with Piglet.
* Creator/JimCummings: Voice actor from ''TheNewAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh'' onwards.
* KindheartedSimpleton: Most of the supporting cast aren't far off, but Pooh is the most noticable as being an equally brainless and sweet-natured character.
* TheKlutz
* NiceGuy
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Who remembers that Pooh's original, and real, name was "Edward Bear" before Christopher Robin changed it?
* OutOfFocus: Slightly, due to numerous [[ADayInTheLimelight character orientated features]] and [[BreakoutCharacter Tigger and Roo often taking spotlight more often]].
* PingPongNaivete: Often completely clueless of the goings on around, other times however he is well aware of the stupidity of his friends.
* ThePollyanna
* SeriousBusiness: "Hunny".
* SimpleMindedWisdom
* SmartBall: Of all the inhabitants of the Forest, Pooh is by far the most likely to get sudden flashes of brilliance. For someone who is so consistently portrayed as dull and slow-witted, he has surprisingly many good ideas when they're needed, to the point where he almost borders on GeniusDitz at times. This is mostly prevalent in the original novels, but the Disney version definitely has his moments as well.
* TooDumbToLive: Granted, most of the cast represents this at times, but Pooh really takes the cake. [[note]][[IncrediblyLamePun Especially if it has pink sugar frosting]][[/note]]. There are times he can be the [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Bear]] however.
* TookALevelInJerkass: '''Big time''' in the official 1980s comic strip from King Features Syndicate. See for yourself in these [[]].
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Again, "Hunny."
* UnfortunateName

[[folder: Christopher Robin]]

!!'''Christopher Robin'''
[[caption-width-right:338:''"Silly old bear."'']]

->''You're braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think… even if we're apart, I'll always be with you.''

The only human character to appear in the books, Christopher Robin is the storybook allusion to the RealLife boy Milne wrote the stories for. He is a young boy who spends time with his stuffed animals in the distant Hundred Acre Wood and acts as a mentor and leader most of the time. Later in the series, he attends boarding school.

* ArtEvolution: Christopher Robin in the 2011 Disney movie now doesn't have SkintoneSclerae.
* CheerfulChild
* ChildrenAreInnocent
* CulturalTranslation: Has an American accent in ''TheNewAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh''.
** He used to have one in the first featurette as well (provided by Bruce Reitherman, [[HeyItsThatVoice who also voiced]] [[Disney/TheJungleBook Mowgli]]), but after complaints from the fans it was changed to an English accent from ''Blustery Day'' onward. When the three original Pooh featurettes were collected into the full-feature ''Disney/TheManyAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh'', Christopher Robin was, for the sake of consistency, overdubbed with his later trademark English accent in the ''Honey Tree'' segment (though you can still clearly hear American Christopher when he sings along with Pooh in the ''Little Black Raincloud'' song).
* DemotedToExtra: Christopher Robin was originally the star of the books; in the poetry books he appears often and has several poems dedicated to him (as opposed to Pooh, who only appears in one poem in ''When We Were Very Young'' and only appears occasionally in ''Now We Are Six''), and while he was moved OutOfFocus for the Pooh stories he remained a central character. In the first Disney featurettes he was also a major character, but in later productions he got smaller and smaller roles, quite often being left out entirely.
** This ''is'' sort of explained in ''Disney/TheManyAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh'' (and elaborated upon in ''Pooh's Most Grand Adventure"): He's started school. While the Disney version doesn't seem to be attending boarding school the way his book counterpart is implied to be, it's still reasonable to presume that he isn't around as much because he's busy with schoolwork.
* TheEveryman
* FullNameBasis: At least if you go by ''New Adventures'' canon, where "Robin" is hinted to be his surname. Rarely, if ever, is he called just "Christopher."
* TokenHuman

[[folder: Tigger]]
[[caption-width-right:339:''"The most wonderful thing about Tigger's is that I'm the only one!"'']]

->''Bouncin's what Tiggers do best!''

Hyperactive stuffed tiger with a fondness for bouncing. Known to grate on others' nerves (especially Rabbit) with his tendency to bounce head on into others as a form of welcome. Initially found somewhat intimidating or annoying by the other members of the Hundred Acre Wood upon his arrival, Pooh and the others eventually warmed up to him and consider him a close friend, especially Roo.

* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Sometimes comes across as having a severe case of this, especially in the Disney version.
* BadassAdorable
* BigBrotherInstinct: To Roo, especially in later features.
* BrooklynRage: Sorta, Disney's Tigger is voiced with a Brooklyn accent (Paul Winchell [[VocalEvolution emphasized it more in his later years]] though it was toned back down when [[TheOtherDarrin Jim Cummings took over]]), while slightly more obnoxious and rambunctious than most of the other residents, he's rather [[ThePollyanna cheerful and harmless overall]].
* BreakoutCharacter: Tigger wasn't really a major character in the books, appearing only in the second book, ''The House At Pooh Corner''. In the Disney adaptations, he got bigger and bigger roles until he ended up as the franchise's main star apart from Pooh himself.
* CartoonyTail: In the Disney version.
* CheerfulChild: He can be said to be this in the original novels, as he is clearly very young and inexperienced and needs someone to look after him. He was aged up for the Disney version (even if his demeanor is much the same).
* DoesNotLikeSpam: "Tiggers don't like honey!"
* FishOutOfWater: At least at first.
* [[FourTemperamentEnsemble Five Temperament Ensemble]]: Sanguine
* HappilyAdopted: By Kanga, in the original novels. In the Disney version, he lives on his own (but frequently hangs around Kanga and Roo).
* HatesBaths: Was forcibly bathed twice in the first TV series and hated it both times. The first time, the bath resulted in [[spoiler: his stripes being washed off]], and he was seen coughing and sputtering throughout, but on the second occasion, he finally admitted that they weren't so bad, while adding that he'd wait until "maybe next year" for another one.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: A mild example - he's as nice as they come; but he does have moments where he's quite thoughtless and inconsiderate. The book version's jerkishness is usually limited to pouncing on people when they're not expecting it, but the Disney version can get surprisingly (though unintentionally) mean at times. This is most prominent in the ''[[TheNewAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh New Adventures]]'' series, but is definitely there in the original featurettes too.
* Creator/JimCummings: Current voice actor.
* {{Keet}}
* TheLancer
* LastOfHisKind: "But the most wonderful thing about Tiggers is I'm the only one!" Only in ''The Tigger Movie'' does he show any true concern over this.
* MilesGloriosus: [[DependingOnTheWriter On occasion]]. Other times [[FearlessFool he's too oddball to really care about his own well being]]. His rather fickle nature can lead him to interchange between cowardly to suicidally fearless in a matter of seconds.
* TheNicknamer: In the Disney version, he's got a nickname for everyone, and ''loads'' of them for Rabbit.
* OddFriendship: Tigger and Eeyore couldn't be more opposite in terms of personality, but that doesn't stop Tigger from considering the old donkey one of his best buddies.
* PickyEater: In the original novel, this is actually one of his defining traits, combined with his usual MilesGloriosus over-enthusiasm. His introduction chapter has him and Pooh searching for something that Tiggers actually like to eat. Tigger cheerfully claims that Tiggers like everything, and whatever Pooh suggests, he'll say it's his very favorite... that is, until he actually tastes it, after which he'll say that Tiggers like everything in the world ''except'' what he just had. The list of exceptions to what Tiggers like keeps growing all through the chapter, until he finally comes across the one thing he ''does'' likes to eat: extract of malt, Roo's "strengthening medicine."
** The Disney version does include a ShoutOut to this when establishing Tigger's dislike of honey (which comes and goes DependingOnTheWriter), but the desperate search for something he can actually eat doesn't happen and extract of malt is never mentioned.
* ThePigPen: In addition to hating baths, Tigger likes bouncing around in the mud. At one point, he even rhetorically asks, "What's wrong with being dirty?"
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Rabbit's blue.
* SadClown: Tigger is usually hyperactive and infallibly cheerful. When he is truly brought down however, it is a rather tragic sight. Utilized in universe, all the others are insistant on "un-bouncing" Tigger, [[HeelRealization though are so heartbroken by the depressed shell remaining when they succeed they immediately go back on it.]]
* SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud: "GASP!"
* SmallNameBigEgo: Bragging's what Tiggers do best.
* TookALevelInKindness: The Disney version, post- ''The Tigger Movie.'' While it's not too blatant, he does through a bit of CharacterDevelopment in that movie, learning to be more considerate towards his non-Tigger friends. This development actually sticks, because in productions after that, his JerkWithAHeartOfGold moments and MilesGloriosus tendencies are toned down considerably -- though his hyperactive enthusiasm hasn't dropped one bit, nor has he become any more inclined to think before he acts, so he remains the most chaotic element in the Hundred Acre Wood.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: In the original novels, it's extract of malt.
* WackyGuy

[[folder: Piglet]]
[[caption-width-right:340:''"I mustn't f-f-f-fear!'']]

->''Ohhh, d-d-d-d-d-deeeaarr.''

Extremely timid stuffed piglet. Being someone of such little size makes Piglet rather paranoid and fearful often needing the support of his friends, nevertheless he's very gentle and caring little guy all in all and will face his fears for the sake of others.

* ArtEvolution: A curious example, but take a look at Piglet's one-second appearance in the original intro song (the "there's Rabbit, and Piglet, and there's Owl" part). Someone at Disney must have done some ''heavy'' redesigning before Piglet made his "official" animated debut in the second featurette.
* ButtMonkey
* CharacterDevelopment: Arguably, he's the only character in the original novels who goes through genuine CharacterDevelopment. He starts out as a timid dreamer who, in his desperate attempts to appear big and brave, usually blows his chances when he gets them and is blind to the positive qualities he ''does'' possess. In the latter parts of the second novel, he learns to recognize and appreciate his own strengths, and in the end becomes the big hero of the book. You could say that he starts out as a LovableCoward but turns into a CowardlyLion. Averted with the Disney version, who is a CowardlyLion from the get-go.
* CheerfulChild: In the Soviet ''Vinni Pukh'' adaptions, Piglet is a much cheerier and less timid character.
* TheChewToy
* TheChick
* CompositeCharacter: Perhaps one reason for Piglet's cheerier attitude in the Soviet ''Vinni Pukh'' adaptions is that he's used as the stand-in character for Christopher Robin, who doesn't appear in the cartoons at all. Since the stories closely follow the book plots, Piglet is the one who says and does all the things that Christopher Robin did in the books, something which certainly alters his characterization a bit.
* CowardlyLion: Will perform impressive acts of bravery when a push becomes a shove, though he's more likely to do this in the Disney version than in the original novels.
* DemotedToExtra: The Disney version occasionally tries to put him on sidelines, but it never seems to last; Piglet is simply too popular a character, even gaining his own movie at one point. This is even more notable considering [[WhatCouldHaveBeen Piglet wasn't even intended to appear in the Disney adaptions initially]].
* ExtremeDoormat
* [[FourTemperamentEnsemble Five Temperament Ensemble]]: Leukine
* HeightAngst: The episode "Biglet" from ''The Book Of Pooh'' features Piglet getting fed up with being short, and starts wearing stilts, giant gloves, and a amplifier in his mouth.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Pooh, who eventually offers to share his home after [[spoiler:Piglet gives his up to Owl]].
* LovableCoward
* NervousWreck
* NiceGuy: Of all the characters, Piglet is probably the most compassionate and caring one.
* SecondEpisodeIntroduction: Since Disney originally intended to replace Piglet with the more "America" Gopher, Piglet's debut in the Disney franchise was delayed until ''The Blustery Day'' after fan outcry forced Walt's hand.
* ShrinkingViolet
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: In the books, acorns, also called "haycorns" by Pooh.
* VagueAge: In the Disney version at least, despite being a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "piglet"]] his matured voice and arguably more sensible personality than many of the others leaves it ambiguous as to whether he is much younger than Pooh. {{T|heNicknamer}}igger referring him to both "kiddo" and "ol' pal" at times certainly doesn't help.

[[folder: Eeyore]]
[[caption-width-right:339:''"Some donkeys have it. Some donkeys don't."'']]

->''Thanks for noticin' me.''

Stuffed donkey with a deeply cynical and borderline mentally depressed view of life. Often around to share a negative view of things, though is also rather philosophical and can give great wisdom at times.

* AdaptationDyeJob: A lot of modern Disney merchandise and promotional artwork saturates Eeyore's fur color into a dull blue, likely to give him a more florescent and noticable design compared to his grey scheme (granted however [[IncrediblyLamePun "blue"]] suits his character in a sense).
* AdaptationalHeroism: His Disney incarnation is ''far'' more sympathetic than the snarky and narcissistic Eeyore of the original books.
* TheBigGuy
* TheChewToy: Though granted not nearly as much [[TheEeyore as he views himself]].
* DeadpanSnarker
* DemotedToExtra: During the 2000's, he was relegated to much smaller roles (especially as stories began to focus more on Tigger, Piglet or Roo). Especially evident during the Heffalump movies where he's only around for a handful of scenes each and in the first one, he's completely forgotten by the others. He bitterly lampshades it, for once, with some genuine poignancy.
-->'''Eeyore''': [[SarcasmMode Don't let me hold you up]].
* TheEeyore: TropeNamer
* FlatJoy: The Disney version occasionally shows this, especially from ''New Adventures'' and onward. It's always PlayedForLaughs.
** In the original books, he does this as well.
--> "Ha-ha," said Eeyore bitterly. "Merriment and what-not. Don't apologize. It's just what ''would'' happen."
* [[FourTemperamentEnsemble Five Temperament Ensemble]]: Melancholic
* GrumpyBear: Snarky and ''extremely'' cynical compared to the other more innocent residents of the Hundred Acre Wood. The Disney version represents this to an extent though is somewhat more recessive and "matter of fact" about it than in the original novels (an often implied character ethic is that he ''enjoys'' being depressed).
* {{Jerkass}}: Definitely in the original novels, though occasionally he goes over into JerkassWoobie territory. Both animated adaptions avert the trope, as Eeyore is far less nasty and sarcastic in either cartoons.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: In the Disney version.
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Animal]]: Often shows the most common sense over the others.
* Creator/PeterCullen: Voice actor from ''TheNewAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh'' onwards, until Bud Luckey in the 2011 film.
* PunnyName: His name is meant to resemble the onomatopoeic sound of a donkey's braying ([[AccentDepundent though it's a bit more obvious when pronounced with a British accent]], as Creator/AAMilne would have said it).
* TheStoic: Ironically enough. Despite his trademark depressive personality, Eeyore is usually the least likely to become highly fearful or upset in a dire situation, his usual emotional range usually never straying past being somewhat glum and negative. Whatever makes his life is so miserable, he is at least accustomed to it.
--> '''Pooh:''' Are you alright, Eeyore?
--> '''Eeyore:''' Been better. Been worse too.
* SurroundedByIdiots: Milne's suggested reason for his depressed attitude in the original novels. In the Disney adaptions, he's a much friendlier guy, just ''very'' negative in the most simplistic of terms, though he does have bouts of this trope at times, especially being TheChewToy.
* TerseTalker
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Thistles. This is mostly prominent in the original novels, but the Disney version has been known to chow down on a thistle or two as well.

[[folder: Rabbit]]

[[caption-width-right:281:''"Oh, Pooh, [[ThisIsGonnaSuck how about lunch]]?"'']]

->''[[GladIThoughtOfIt Splendid idea -- glad I thought of it.]]''

Grouchy [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin rabbit]] that is obsessed with getting order and peace in the Hundred Acre Wood. Often finds himself bothered by the antics of the other residents usually Pooh and Tigger, though granted he himself often takes wacky extremes to deal with problems.

* AdaptationDyeJob: Weirdly enough, he's a light ''green'' color in ''TheNewAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh'', as opposed to yellow in all the other Disney productions.
** And in the original novels, he's brown. At least according to E. H. Shepard's color illustrations.
* AmbiguouslyGay: Fitting to a T. Right down to the fact that it is played up for laughs (his pink robe and hair curlers, multiple frilly aprons, the aptitude for ballet dancing as seen in ''WesternAnimation/PoohsGrandAdventure'', etc), it is never addressed/confirmed, nor implied that he has any interest in the opposite sex. Or either sex, for that matter.
** Averted in the 2011 film, in which he fantasizes himself as being surrounded by female rabbits.
* ButtMonkey
* CampStraight
* TheChewToy
* TheComicallySerious
* ControlFreak
* [[FourTemperamentEnsemble Five Temperament Ensemble]]: Choleric
* TheFinickyOne
* GrumpyBear
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Often cynical and hostile but will take steps to take care of his friends in the end.
* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Perhaps best summed up by Pooh and Piglet in the original novel:
-->"Rabbit's clever," said Pooh thoughtfully.\\
"Yes," said Piglet, "Rabbit's clever."\\
"And he has Brain."\\
"Yes," said Piglet, "Rabbit has Brain."\\
There was a long silence.\\
"I suppose," said Pooh, "that that's why he never understands anything."
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Rabbit]]: Though admittedly he himself has rather [[IncrediblyLamePun hare brained]][[NotSoAboveItAll ideas at times.]]
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Tigger's red.
* {{Schemer}}
* ShesAManInJapan: The 1967-1975 German dubs of the original shorts (Honey Tree, Blustery Day, etc.) made the character a female.
* SmallNameBigEgo
* TheSmartGuy
* SuperOCD: Rabbit is obsessed with order and tidiness and can turn almost any minor fun activity into a highly regimented work routine (usually resulting in a nervous breakdown when the others screw it up).
-->'''Rabbit:''' Have you all gone mad?!? You can't possibly do things...''out of order!''
* TokenEvilTeammate: To an extent. He is much more antagonistic than the other residents, however by normal standards, he's just a bit of {{Jerkass}}, redeeming himself rather frequently and even plays the StraightMan on occasion.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Merely wants to maintain order in the Hundred Acre Wood, but resorts to somewhat extreme measures such as kidnapping or traumatizing residents in order to do so (granted however, it hardly ever works).
* ZanyScheme

[[folder: Kanga]]

->''Do be careful, dear!''

Docile mother kangaroo. Often acts a gentle mother figure to the others.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Usually rather docile and sweet in tone (to the point of being a borderline ExtremeDoormat), though let's say she's rather sporting to the odd scheme or prank (Piglet found this out the hard way).
* CloserToEarth: The Disney version at least. The book version is slightly more sensible too but shares the others' occasionally brainless demeanor.
* CreatorCameo: In the 2011 film, Kristen Anderson-Lopez (who co-wrote the 2011 film's songs with her husband Robert Lopez) voices Kanga. Ironic when Kanga stops the song and asks for silence when she wins the honey pot (temporarily).
* KathSoucie: Voice actress from ''The Tigger Movie'' onwards, with the exception of KingdomHearts and the 2011 film.
* MamaBear: Much more gentle than usual examples, but is obviously rather protective of her son.
** The trope is even pointed out by Piglet in the original novel:
--> "There's just one thing," said Piglet, fidgeting a bit. "I was talking to Christopher Robin, and he said that a Kanga was Generally Regarded as One of the Fiercer Animals. I am not frightened of Fierce Animals in the ordinary way, but it is well known that if One of the Fiercer Animals is Deprived of Its Young, it becomes as fierce as ''Two'' of the Fiercer Animals."
** This is toned down in the Disney adaptation of their meeting, where Kanga knows full well how harmless the other residents are and ultimately shows mercy on Piglet (with "a cookie and a kiss"), at which point he realises Kanga isn't scary at all.
* PositiveDiscrimination: The Disney version arguably. She does at least seem to be the one character lacking a personality-establishing flaw.
* SlapstickKnowsNoGender: Not seen a whole lot, but Tigger bounces everyone, including her.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple
* TeamMom

[[folder: Roo]]


->''Yes, Mama!''

Hyperactive joey of Kanga. Shares Tigger's fondness for bouncing and looks up to him like a big brother. Later befriends heffalump Lumpy.

* AscendedExtra: A side character in the original novels and Disney featurettes, almost as prominent as Pooh and Tigger in some of the newer features.
* BadassAdorable: Being a protégé of sorts to Tigger, he's naturally one in training (especially in ''The Tigger Movie'').
* BigBrotherWorship: Of the surrogate sorts. He views Tigger as a big brother (a sentiment that is returned in ''The Tigger Movie'') and idolizes him for his feats ([[FanOfTheUnderdog that most others find aggravating]]), even going as far as frequently imitating his every move and word (a running gag in the Disney features involved a character being bounced by Tigger, getting back up on their feet, only to be bounced by Roo in turn).
* BreakoutCharacter: In later features.
* CharacterDevelopment: Initially a [[{{Keet}} mindless infant]] similar to his novel counterpart, his upgraded role in the Disney adaptions has led to stories being played a lot more from his perspective, [[AscendedFanboy his idolization of Tigger being expanded upon and even gaining a surrogate "little brother" of his own]]. He has also became more emotional and aware of the surrounding issues, even acting as a CowardlyLion on occasion.
* CheerfulChild
* ExpressiveEars: ''Pooh's Heffalump Movie'' is a good film to see him demonstrating this quite a few times.
* HatesBaths: A whole episode of ''The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh'', "The Old Switcheroo", revolves around Roo trying to avoid bath time with Tigger. [[spoiler: At the end of the episode, he finally takes a bath, and realizes that it's [[BathsAreFun fun after all]]]].
* KidAppealCharacter - the reason for his ascended role in the Disney canon.
* {{Keet}}: In the original novels, he's the only character who can match Tigger for hyperactive overenthusiasm. In fact, he occasionally surpasses Tigger, largely because Tigger has ''just'' enough sense to realize when he's in a bad situation, while Roo is a FearlessFool through and through. The Disney version certainly has shades of this too, albeit more toned down and DependingOnTheWriter.
* MommasBoy: Most incarnations show him and Kanga being really close.
* MotorMouth: Again, in the original novels. The Disney adaptions use this for occasional gags.
* TagalongKid
* ToxicFriendInfluence: Tigger plays a light example. While he [[BigBrotherInstinct genuinely tries to look out for Roo]] (and has saved his life at least once) the other residents show awareness that he is [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} not the]] [[{{Keet}} most ideal]] [[SmallNameBigEgo role model]] for him at times.
-->'''Tigger:''' Taught him everything he knows.
-->'''Rabbit:''' That explains a lot.

[[folder: Owl]]


->''Good, that will just give me time to tell you about my Uncle Clyde...''

Scatterbrained elderly owl. Usually shares knowledge and wisdom to the other residents of the Hundred Acre Wood, oblivious to the fact he has as little idea of such aspects as they do. Also likes to share rather frequent (and long) amusing stories about his somewhat eccentric family.

* CoolOldGuy: The other animals view him as this. While much more brainless in reality, he does have some shades of this.
* GrumpyOldMan: Sometimes shows traces of this in the books; in one chapter it's revealed that his standard reply when someone knocks on his door is "Go away, I'm thinking -- oh, it's you?", and he can get pretty high-and-mighty and impatient with the others when he thinks they're talking about things that are beneath his dignity.
** Completely averted with the Disney version, who is an altogether more jovial and cheerful fellow.
*** Although in the 2011 movie adaptation, he became frustrated with the simple-minded residents, and [[IdiotPlot starts the main conflict in the film unknowingly]]
* DitzyGenius
* InTheBlood: His family is often implied to be as scatterbrained as he is.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: In the 2011 movie adaptation.
* KnowNothingKnowItAll / TheSmartGuy: Switches back and forth
* LiteralMinded: Certainly so in ''Piglet's Big Movie'', having taken the questions "Have you seen Piglet?" and "Have you seen him this morning?" literally.
* MotorMouth
* OldWindbag
* OminousOwl: Subverted somewhat. Though his [[KnowNothingKnowItAll clueless]] and sometimes [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} deranged]] demeanor causes problems at times, Owl is a thoroughly high spirited and kindly individual, the other residents even frequently referring to him as "their good friend".
* TheOwlKnowingOne: Parodied. Everyone (including Owl himself) views Owl as the wisest and most intelligent of the animals, but in reality he's pretty clueless.
* ShesAManInJapan: In the Soviet ''Vinni Pukh'' adaptions, Owl is female.
** The original Norwegian translations of the books also turned Owl female. The books were re-translated (and drastically shortened, several plot points and jokes left out) later on, still with a female Owl. It wasn't until the third translation, which was far more faithful to the original text that Owl became male. (He was always male in the Norwegian dub of the Disney cartoons, which just made the entire thing even more confusing.)
** Owl is also female in the Polish translation of the books.

[[folder: Gopher]]

->''I'm *whistle* not in the book, y'know.''

Full name Samuel J. Gopher, usually littering the Hundred Acre Wood with his endless burrows, often for someone (usually himself) to fall into. Exclusive to the Disney adaptions.

* CanonImmigrant: Or CanonForeigner, depending on how you look at it.
* {{Catchphrase}}: "I'm not in the book, you know!" in the first featurette; a DoubleEntendre that neatly {{Lampshade|Hanging}}s his CanonImmigrant status.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: He seems to have all but vanished from the franchise in later years (he appeared in the recent ''Pooh's Heffalump Holloween Movie'', albeit via recycled footage).
** He reappeared in WinnieThePoohsHomeRunDerby as an umpire. Be thankful he's not one of [[NintendoHard the pitchers]].
* {{Expy}}: His personality is based very largely on the beaver character in ''Disney/LadyAndTheTramp''. This was made even more evident when [[CrossOver Beaver actually reappeared as a semi-regular]] in ''My Friends Tigger And Pooh''.
* FunnyAnimal: The Saturday-morning TV series gave him a miner's helmet, making him alternate between this trope and a less anthropomorphic animal.
* MotorMouth: When engrossed in his work anyway.
* {{Prospector}}: His overall mannerisms and duties very much resemble a stereotypical rendition of the trope, however, being a gopher, [[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything his motives for burrowing around are never really explained]].
* SixthRanger
* SpeechImpediment: *whistle*
** In the episode "Sham Pooh," Piglet interprets it as SnakeTalk.

!Supporting And Minor Characters


-> ''Heffridge Trumpler Brompet Heffalump IV.''

Roo's new best friend, possibly the only character in the franchise who's younger than him, and one of the elusive Heffalumps -- though unlike previous depictions of these largely unseen monsters he's not the least bit menacing. Another Disney adaptation exclusive, though a much more recent addition than Gopher.

* CheerfulChild
* ChildrenAreInnocent
* LovableCoward: Roo even notes his similarities to Piglet on one occasion.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Because his real name is so long nobody but his mother can remember it.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Even by Pooh standards, he's ''adorable.''


->''Oh, la!''

A female otter, and the single new character to appear in David Benedictus's ''Return to the Hundred Acre Wood.'' Slightly snobbish and haughty, and so scatterbrained that she makes Tigger look sensible, but ultimately kind and helpful.

* CloserToEarth: Perhaps the one female character in all depictions to subvert this trope.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She's second only to Eeyore when it comes to think up insults, but when it comes down to it she's really quite friendly.
* MotorMouth: Not quite as extreme as Owl, but still able to talk rings around Rabbit.
* PlayfulOtter: A curious mix of this and wannabe GrandeDame; she'll berate the others for not acting dignified enough in one moment and run around, playing tag and shouting "can't catch me!" the next.
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: The illustrations by Mark Burgess shows her to be wearing a pearl necklace.
* WhatMeasureIsANonCute: She was originally going to be a garden snake, but since ReptilesAreAbhorrent, the publisher insisted that she be turned into another animal. Benedictus settled on an otter.



A baby bird rescued and for a while cared for by Rabbit, whom she calls "Rabbee." A Disney-only character, she appeared only in two episodes of ''TheNewAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh'', but was brought back as a major recurring character for ''The Book Of Pooh.''

* AscendedExtra: In ''The Book Of Pooh.''
* CanonForeigner
* NotAllowedToGrowUp: Averted in ''New Adventures,'' as the entire point of Kessie's character is that she's growing up. Played straight in ''The Book Of Pooh,'' though.


Co-lead character in ''My Friends Tigger And Pooh''.

* CheerfulChild
* GracefulLadiesLikePurple: Her jumper.
* {{Redheaded Hero}}ine
* {{Tomboy}}

!! '''Heff Heffalump and Stan Woozle'''

Heffalump and Woozle ''[[RealAfterAll in the flesh]]''. Bumbling gangster types who are constantly after the Hundred Acre Wood's honey supply. Appeared as recurring antagonists in ''New Adventures''.

* BigEater: They swipe the entire wood's supply of honey in one night.
* DumbMuscle: Heff
* HarmlessVillain: They sneak into your house at night and rob you dry...[[FelonyMisdemeanor of all your honey]]!!!
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: Heff is noticably dumber and less conniving than Stan.
* ObviouslyEvil: Stan.
* RealAfterAll: Heffalumps and Woozles were suggested to be mere imaginary threats thought up by Pooh and the others in the original books and Disney material preceding this.
* {{Schemer}}: Stan
* ThoseTwoBadGuys
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have to Be a Giant Mouse?]]
* WithCatlikeTread: Though are still successful a lot of times surprisingly enough.
* YellowEyesOfSneakiness: Stan has these.

!! '''Wooster'''

Hulking, thuggish Woozle who only appeared in the New Adventures episode "The Great Honey Pot Robbery".

* TheBrute: Before his HeelFaceTurn.
* GentleGiant: After his HeelFaceTurn.
* HeelFaceTurn: After Pooh offers to be his friend, Wooster decides to politely ask for honey rather than steal it.
* HulkSpeak
* KnightOfCerebus: He's pretty frightening by the show's standards, at least until his HeelFaceTurn.

!! '''The Pack Rats'''
A trio of rodents in ''New Adventures'' who compulsively steal anything that isn't nailed down. The gray one is the leader, the orange one is an overweight dimwit and the brown one has a slight attitude problem.

* CallingCard: They leave walnuts in place of whatever they take.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience
* GoldfishPoopGang
* {{Harmless Villain}}s
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: They can be quite helpful at times, but can't fight the urge to continue stealing.
* PunnyName
* RuleOfThree
* TerribleTrio
* VillainDecay: Mild example, but the Packrats are slightly more threatening in their first appearance, "Nothing but the Tooth", than in the other two episodes featuring them.
* YouDirtyRat

!! '''Crud'''

Horrifying One Shot villain from the TheNewAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh episode "Cleanliness is Next to Impossible".

* EldritchAbomination: By ''Winnie the Pooh'' standards, at least.
* EvilIsHammy
* LaughablyEvil: Even with his slightly horrific concept, he has a rather whimsical, hammy demeanor. His motives are solely to create trash, after all.
* KilledOffForReal: Both he and his minion Smudge get sucked into Christopher Robin's vacuum, making them the only characters in the entire ''Winnie the Pooh'' franchise to die permanently.
* KnightOfCerebus
* TrashOfTheTitans: Taken to villainous extremes.
* VileVillainSaccharineShow: Well, sort of. By normal media standards, he is merely a LaughablyEvil cartoon blob who [[PokeThePoodle wants to make the world messy]], but by the usual standards of [[TastesLikeDiabetes the Winnie The Pooh universe]] (that usually doesn't even have actual villains) he's actually kinda unsettling.

!! '''Nasty Jack'''

The leader of the Horse Thieves. One Shot villain from "Paw and Order"

* HeelFaceTurn: He ceases all hostilities against the gang when Piglet makes him the sheriff.
* LaughablyEvil: Given the show, he attacks the gang with things like ''ice cream''.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Lampshaded by Piglet.
* VisualPun: He's not a horse thief, he's a Horse Thief (the name of his gang).
* WorthyOpponent: Sees the Masked Bear as this, deciding to get serious when he poises a threat to his control over the town.

!! '''The Backson'''

A monster that Pooh and friends imagine when they mistake a letter Christopher Robin wrote to them as ending in "Backson" instead of "back soon", and, fearing the worst, they plan to capture it and rescue Christopher Robin. From the original books. Made its animated debut in the 2011 ''Winnie the Pooh'' film.

* BlindingBangs
* BreadEggsMilkSquick: Everything that Owl claims the Backson does is worthy only of PokeThePoodle, except for "Stealing your youth", which is pretty dangerous, and "Chipping your tooth", which obviously, would be pretty painful.
* DarkIsNotEvil: [[spoiler: He initially appears pretty fearsome, but it turns out he's a rather pleasant guy.]]
* DisneyAcidSequence: The Backson Song.
* FelonyMisdemeanor: [[spoiler: Everything the characters blame the Backson to be committing during its musical sequence are rather unfantastical and mundane, such as "scribbling in all your books", getting you to sleep in, spilling your tea, interrupting your train of thought, and never saying "pardon" when it bumps into you. It's also averted, as they also claim that it chips your tooth and steals your youth!]]
* RealAfterAll: [[spoiler: The Backson makes an appearance in the post-credits stinger of the movie, but he seems to be a rather cheerful fellow.]]
* TheStinger: [[spoiler:The Backson stomps along through the woods, looking menacing, and then comes across the objects trail that Pooh and friends left, and cheerfully proclaims about how you can find so many interesting things in the woods. He sees the picture of himself, thinks everything must belong to the guy in the picture, and proceeds to pick up the items, leading right into the pit and falling into it.]]
* TheVillainSucksSong: The Backson Song


A "character" who appears in the 2011 movie, B'loon is introduced as Christopher Robin's red toy balloon, which is treated by all the other characters as a living, sentient being. He mainly just floats around, drifting in and out of the story at various points and never really does anything a normal balloon wouldn't... then again, some fans have speculated that he ''is'' sentient, just unable to talk.

* BigDamnHeroes: ''Sort'' of, in that [[spoiler:B'loon is the one to "fetch" Christopher Robin at the end and is consequently treated as the hero of the day.]]
* CompanionCube: A rare example of one that, due do being a balloon, can and does actually move around, though despite what the other characters think, there's no real evidence that he's anything but a normal, inanimate balloon.
* JerkAss: If he ''is'' sentient, he's definitely this, judging by his actions in the movie.
