!!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. All of the animal characters are based on actual stuffed animals he owned.

!!Tropes Related to the Disney Canon:
* CreatorCameo: In the 2011 film, songwriters Kristen-Anderson and Robert Lopez voices (and sings as) Kanga.
** Robert Lopez, the other songwriter, does the sounds (and [[ItMakesSenseInContext singing voice]]) of [[GrowlingGut Pooh's tummy]].
* CreatorsFavorite: Alongside [[TheTransformers Optimus Prime]] of course, Eeyore became {{Peter Cullen}}'s favourite voice role.
* 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.
** Disney went so far as to spoof the phenomenon in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMeTL1seIWo this trailer]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6GMxyYdcpU this one]].
* GenreKiller: While a modest success, breaking even on a $30 million budget, it was nowhere the runaway success that their recent CGI features had been and, along with ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'', saw Disney's attempts to alternate between 2D and 3D with each feature flounder. Glen Keane, one of the studio's star animators, left shortly thereafter, closing off the studio's pipeline for good. John Lasseter, once a fierce advocate for keeping 2D alive in the age of CGI, has since announced that the "every other movie is 2D" plan has been dropped and that, as of this writing, there are no more 2D features planned.

* HeyItsThatVoice
** Tigger is voiced by [[WackyRaces Dick Dastardly]] and [[TheSmurfs Gargamel]] early on.
** Later [[Creator/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.
** [[Creator/PeterCullen Eeyore]] is voiced by [[TheTransformers Optimus Prime]].
** In Japan, it's [[Creator/TesshoGenda Tigger]] who's Optimus Prime there.
*** In the 2011 film, he's voiced by [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory3 Chuckles the Clown]], [[WesternAnimation/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 [[WesternAnimation/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: Creator/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.
* PlayingAgainstType: An odd subversion happens in the Japanese dub: Tigger is voiced by Creator/TesshoGenda, a voice actor normally associated with voicing HotBlooded heroes like [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} Optimus Prime]], [[TheBigGuy big guys]] or outright vicious beings like [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Kurama]] or [[VideoGame/GodOfWar Kratos in Japanese]]. Keep in mind he's one of the few voice actors from that version that voiced Tigger from day one in Japan, whe he was much younger and possibly he wasn't yet typecasted into a specific kind of role.
* 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 90s.
* 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 ''Disney/TheTiggerMovie'', however Disney decided his voice had become to worn from age so opted for his replacement Creator/JimCummings instead.

!!!''My Friends Tigger & Pooh'':
* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Darby is [[Film/KickAss Hit Girl.]] In hindsight, that's pretty disturbing.
** Creator/MarkHamill is 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.
