!!The Original Books:
* CreatorBacklash: A.A. Milne grew to loathe his Winnie-the-Pooh books as it typecasted him forever as a "writer of children's books", and he could never go back to writing adult fiction. He even tried to kill off Pooh at the end of the second book. (Of course, it didn't work.) E.H. Shepard, Pooh's illustrator, also suffered from this as it overshadowed his work in political cartoons. Similarly, Milne's son, Christopher Robin, grew to hate the works as well for he was bullied constantly for being immortalized in them.
* {{Defictionalization}}: The game of Poohsticks now has its own world championships.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** At one point Gopher of the Disney adaptations ''would'' have been "in the book", according to Disney, who claimed that the real Christopher Robin saw a gopher in the garden and asked for it to be included in his father's stories. Fantasy author and animation historian John Grant, however, points out that gophers do not exist in Britain, and so this story is almost certainly false. Christopher Robin Milne's autobiography, ''The Enchanted Places'', reveals that A. A. Milne had planned to include an American Gopher in his Pooh books, but his publisher nixed it (''Enchanted Places'' reprints a short poem from the lost Milne version of Gopher). In other words, Gopher at one point ''would'' have been in the book.
** In the introduction (or, according to Owl, the "Contradiction") to ''The House at Pooh Corner'', Milne himself mentions other adventures, "more grand than any I have told you about," which he can't tell because they came to him in dreams and he's forgotten them. He only remembers one small part of one of them, with Pooh meeting 107 cows sitting on a gate, and claims that this was probably the best story of them all.
* WriteWhoYouKnow: Christopher Robin is the author's son of the same name.

!!Tropes Related to the Disney Canon:
* CreatorCameo: In the 2011 film, co-songwriter Kristen-Anderson Lopez voices (and sings as) Kanga.
* CrossDressingVoices: Roo was voiced by Dori Whitaker in ''Winnie-the-Pooh and Tigger Too'' and by Kim Christianson in ''Welcome to Pooh Corner''.
** In some languages (such as Hungarian), Piglet is voiced by a woman.
* DuelingMovies: The 2011 movie came the same weekend as ''Film/HarryPotter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2''. The decision to set a film like this against the GrandFinale of one of the most beloved fantasy movie series of all time has Disney fans everywhere banging their heads. This decision is truly a head-scratcher, but there's a good chance fans of both would watch one and then follow it up with the other, assuming they're not planning to see ''Potter'' at midnight. (Preferred order most likely ''Deathly Hallows'', then ''Winnie the Pooh''.) It may also be a smart decision for Disney regarding families that have older and younger kids. Have one parent take the older kid to see ''Potter'' and then the other parent goes with the preschooler to see ''Pooh''. Of course, that begs the question of what to do with the younger kid once ''Pooh'' is over, since there's no such thing as a two and a half hour ''Pooh'' film.
* GenreKiller: Fans are worried that if ''Winnie-the-Pooh'' doesn't do well at the box office, it will spell the end of hand-drawn animation at Disney... again. Other fans know that it would need to take something bigger to do that. This film was modestly-budgeted ($30 million) and broke even at the box office thanks to overseas sales. DVD sales would only help.
** Played straight, as the next Disney film, ''Disney/WreckItRalph'' is in CG, and the one after that, ''The Snow Queen'', not only had its title shortened to ''Frozen'', but has gone from Hand-drawn to CGI. And with Glen Keane's resignation in light of Disney not having any hand-drawn movies down the line, this trope may very well be in effect However there is plans for a 2-D animated Mickey Mouse movie that is in development so only time will tell if it truly played it straight!
* HeyItsThatVoice
** Tigger is voiced by [[WackyRaces Dick Dastardly]] and [[TheSmurfs Gargamel]] early on.
** Later [[JimCummings he and Pooh]] are voiced by [[Disney/TheJungleBook Kaa]], [[WesternAnimation/TaleSpin Don Karnage]] and [[WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM Dr Robotnik]]. Enjoy.
*** In Denmark, it's Piglet who's Don Karnage.
** [[PeterCullen Eeyore]] is voiced by [[TheTransformers Optimus Prime]].
*** In the 2011 film, he's voiced by [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory3 Chuckles the Clown]], [[TheIncredibles Rick Dicker]], and [[PixarShorts the Jackalope.]]
** {{Ka|thSoucie}}nga is voiced by [[WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM Princess Sally Acorn]] and [[WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}} Phil and Lil]].
*** And the one from Many Adventures is voiced by [[Disney/{{Sleeping Beauty}} Merryweather]] and [[Disney/{{Lady and the Tramp}} Lady]].
** The 2011 film has Rabbit [[TomKenny voiced by]] WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants and Owl voiced by [[Film/HowToTrainYourDragon Gobber]].
*** However, in Germany, Santiago Ziesmer (Spongebob's actor) has been ''Piglet'' since '88.
** In those old shorts... Hey, wasn't Creator/RonHoward's brother the original voice of Roo?
** In Brazil, Kanga has been [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Marge Simpson]] ever since the first "Pooh" shorts premiered there in the 1970s.
* TheOtherDarrin: JimCummings and others were Other Darrins to the original voices way before 2011, but the 2011 film brings in Creator/CraigFerguson as Owl, TomKenny as Rabbit, [[Creator/PixarRegulars Bud Luckey]] as Eeyore and Creator/JohnCleese as the Narrator.
* TalkingToHimself:
** Jim Cummings is currently Tigger and Pooh.
** However, in France, Roger Carel was Pooh and Rabbit until he retired in the 2000s. He was also Piglet until the late 80s.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Piglet was intended to be AdaptedOut, with Gopher serving as a replacement. Since the change was not accepted well, ''Blustery Day'' onwards introduced Piglet as a main character.
** Paul Winchell was intended to reprise his role as Tigger in ''TheTiggerMovie'', however Disney decided his voice had become to worn from age so opted for his replacement JimCummings instead.

!!!''My Friends Tigger & Pooh'':
* HeyItsThatVoice: Darby is [[Film/KickAss Hit Girl.]] In hindsight, that's pretty disturbing.
** MarkHamill: The voice of Turtle, a new character.
* TheOtherDarrin: Darby [[TakeUpMySword takes over]] from Christopher Robin as the main human character in the series. Christopher Robin is now an extra with little screen time.
