* While regrouping from their first failed attempt (see above) to capture a heffalump, they hear one trumpeting ([[spoiler It's actually Lumpy's mother.]]). They panic and rush into the log they were resting on. Then,
Rabbit then uses [[GotVolunteered Piglet]] as a telescope by sticking his head out in the log's hole, and when he spots nearby bushes moving, he yells "IT'S COMING!". Cue Rabbit and Tigger sticking their feet out and running like crazy while arguing which way to go... ''while Piglet is still trapped in the hole''.

** Oh, and the aforementioned heffalump? It's ''Eeyore'', who has just caught up to them... only to find his friends in the aformentioned situation, crashing into things and screaming. His reaction?
-->'''Eeyore''': [[DeadpanSnarker I'm afraid to ask.]]
*** At one point, Piglet ''stops screaming to greet Eeyore'', managing a "Bye, Eeyore!" right before being pulled back.


** Another moment from the original heffalump story is Pooh trying to come up with justifications for eating the honey that's supposed to be bait. He remembers his uncle mentioning seeing honey-coloured cheese and uses this as an excuse to "check" if it's cheese. Then, he finds a justification for eating 90% of it by rationalising that someone may have replaced the honey at the bottom with cheese for a joke.




to:

* Owl tries to spell "Happy birthday", but can't spell either of those words, ending up with three misspellings of "birthday" ("Bthuthdth", "thuthda" and "bthuthdy"). He tries to cover up his tracks by saying that he's actually writing, "A very happy birthday with love from Pooh".
* In the chapter where Pooh, Piglet, and Rabbit try to "unbounce" Tigger, Roo wants to tag along with them. They [[BatmanGambit dissuade Kanga from allowing this]] by claiming that Roo was coughing that morning, knowing full well that Kanga will [[JumpingToConclusionsDiagnosis assume he is sick]]. As it turns out, Roo ''had'' been coughing that morning, but only because a biscuit got stuck in his throat. When Kanga asks him why he didn't tell her, he responds, "It was a biscuit cough, not one you tell about". Then, he asks if he can come on the next available outing, to which Kanga responds, "I'll see".
-->'''Roo''': "You're always 'seeing' and nothing ever happens!"
* The conversation from the beginning, about Pooh's name.
-->'''Narrator''': "But I thought he was a boy?"
-->'''Christopher Robin''': "So did I."
-->'''Narrator''': "Then, you can't call him 'Winnie'."
-->'''Christopher Robin''': "I don't."
-->'''Narrator''': "But you said--"
-->'''Christopher Robin''': "He's Winnie-''ther''-Pooh! Don't you know what 'ther' means?!"


-->'''Tigger:''' Why wouldn't ya say it? ''*singing*'' Onomatopoeia! Onomatopoeia! Onomatopoeia, is it onomatopoeia?

to:

-->'''Tigger:''' Why wouldn't ya say it? ''*singing*'' Onomatopoeia! Onomatopoeia! Onomatopoeia, All I wanna be-ah is it onomatopoeia?an onomatopoeiaaaaa~!


** Later, Tigger goes tries to convince Rabbit to un-cancel Easter, but Rabbit doesn't even want to hear the word, but Tigger doesn't quite know what he's not supposed to say, leading to this exchange:
-->'''Tigger:''' Is it...carrotses?
-->'''Rabbit:''' No.
-->'''Tigger:''' Rutabegas?
-->'''Rabbit:''' No!
-->'''Tigger:''' Thingamawachimahiggetyjinks?
-->'''Rabbit:''' That's not even a word.
-->'''Tigger:''' Onomatopoeia? ''*whips out a dictionary while giving an AsideGlance*'' And that is a word.
-->'''Rabbit:''' Why would you ever say that?
-->'''Tigger:''' Why wouldn't ya say it? ''*singing*'' Onomatopoeia! Onomatopoeia! Onomatopoeia, is it onomatopoeia?
-->'''Rabbit:''' Easter! The word is Easter!
-->'''Tigger:''' That was gonna be my next guess.






to:

** Lumpy explains to Roo his conceptions of Tigger and Piglet, which Roo tells him are all wrong. Then, he comes to Rabbit...
-->'''Lumpy''': And then there's loud thing and it's got long ears. And he yells at everybody.
-->'''Roo''': Yeah, you're kind of right about Rabbit. But he's okay... once you get to know him.



to:

** Roo doesn't think that Lumpy can be a heffalump because he doesn't have the fearsome features that Rabbit and the others described, like horns and a spiky tail.
-->'''Lumpy''': Wow, a spiky tail. I wish I had one.



to:

** As Rabbit outlines "[[GladIThoughtOfIt his]]" idea to capture a heffalump, Tigger stands behind him, making goofy faces and doing exaggerated and mocking versions of his hand movements.


* Owl's house is originally called "THE WOLERY", but then Eeyore sits on the sign and it becomes "THE SMUDGE".

to:

* Owl's house is originally called "THE WOLERY", but then Eeyore sits on the sign and it becomes "THE SMUDGE". Owl coughs at Eeyore in irritation when he sees this. Then Eeyore marches off to show the other animals the new house he found for Owl, with the greater part of "THE WOLERY" on his behind.

Added DiffLines:

** He thinks the tablecloth tried to bite him, and when Pooh says that it didn't, Tigger says, "It ''tried''."
** When he eats a thistle, he thinks that it's painful because it's too hot. Later, he says, "What were those hot things called?"


!!''My Friends Tigger & Pooh''
* In the song "Just a Few Simple Rules" from the special ''Tigger & Pooh and a Musical Too'', Rabbit outlines his new rules as mayor of the Hundred Acre Wood. One of his rules is that everyone has to do chores at the same time, so he brings Piglet a scrub brush to wash dishes.
-->'''Piglet''': Uh, thank you, Rabbit, heh, but all of my dishes are already washed.
-->'''Rabbit''': Uh, that doesn't matter. All chores are to be done at the same time, all over the Wood. It's simply more organized. ... ... ''But I can cite no greater crime / Than to sweep at sleeping time / Or to use a schedule different from my own!''
-->'''Piglet''': Uh, what time is it now, Rabbit?
-->'''Rabbit''': Time to sing the chorus, of course.
* In "Buster's Bath," the characters are trying to get Buster, who HatesBaths, to see that BathsAreFun. They ask their friends to bring their best bath toys, only for Rabbit to show up with a shower cap, which they note isn't exactly a toy. Rabbit replies that he would never take a bath without one, and besides, baths aren't for having fun, they're for getting clean.
-->'''Tigger''': Not exactly the message we're lookin' to send. Next!
* In "Darby's Super Sleuth Surprise," the Super Sleuths discover Rabbit making pies for a SurpriseParty for them, which he excuses as making pies for the winter. They ask if he wants help, but he says that he doesn't. They walk away, discussing how it's odd that he didn't want their help...
-->'''Tigger''': Well, you know ol' cotton-bottom. He's the self-deficient type. Ya' know, a real do-it-without-ya kinda guy.
* In one installment, Rabbit can actually be heard singing "''Doing the dishes is one of my wishes.''"


!!''The Book of Pooh''
* In the "Chez Piglet" song from "At Chez Piglet," Rabbit sings about a number of dishes that will supposedly be served at Chez Piglet, including "peanut butter and [[ItIsPronouncedTropay jell-ay]]" and "ice cubes flambé." So, in other words, water.
** Rabbit getting increasingly too into the role, later badgering Piglet to serve a reviewer for the restaurant. The reviewer turns out to be ''him'', and he lambasts the quality. The end result is one of few times you see Piglet get genuinely pissed off.
-->'''Rabbit:''' There wasn't even a maitre d here to greet me when I arrived.
-->'''Piglet:''' B-but Rabbit, ''you're'' the maitre d!
-->'''Rabbit:''' Oh I am? ''*beat*'' Well then where am I? I really should be here when I come to review, don't you think?
* The episode "Mr Narrator" is ADayInTheLimelight for ''the Narrator''. After the animals of the wood are all getting on too peacefully, the Narrator attempts to improvise a story with them, his first attempt is incredibly muddied and gets all their roles mixed up.
** Pooh was bouncing (and getting cramps).
** Tigger was eating honey (which he hates).
** Kessie was doing garden work (and struggling to even lift the trowel).
** Owl was confused due to being an owl of very little brain (a description that leaves Owl indignant).
** Eeyore was flying across the wood (cue Eeyore trying to fly by flapping his ears).
** Piglet cuts off the narrator before his role, terrified of what he might end up doing.
* In the episode "Happy Harvest Rabbit", Owl discusses with Piglet how Rabbit might have worked himself silly. Later on he checks on Rabbit, who has decided to celebrate tending to his garden by dancing to some samba records. This alone is hilarious, but then when seen out of context, Piglet is convinced Rabbit has [[LiteralMinded literally worked himself silly]]. Rabbit later introduces more of the animals to his samba records, leading Piglet to take measures against what he thinks is an epidemic:
-->'''Piglet:''' ''*flying on balloon, wearing a surgeon mask and headphones, and speaking through a megaphone*'' Ahem, attention my poor silly friends, this is Piglet! Hear me! You must resist the silliness! Think of serious things! Laundry, er, black hats, erm....pages and pages of numbers...
-->'''Rabbit:''' What on earth is he talking about?
* "Enter Braying" has Rabbit deciding to recreate Eeyore's new play on stage, and promptly becoming a PrimaDonnaDirector. The first rehearsal is repeatedly cut off before Pooh can finish the first sentence of the script, with Rabbit making increasingly grandiose alterations to the dialogue. By the end of it, the cast has fallen asleep.
* In "The Case of the Disappeared Donkey" where Tigger takes on a detective role, and confuses everyone by monologuing his work to the screen. Rather ironic for a show with NoFourthWall.
-->'''Pooh:''' Erm, Tigger....Who are you talking to?
-->'''Tigger:''' NOBODY! ''*AsideGlance*'' I told him I wasn't talking to nobody, or anybody. You get the idea.
-->'''Pooh:''' I'm rather confused.
* Some of the wacky musical numbers are pretty humorous, especially when the whole group, [[NotSoAboveItAll even Eeyore and Kanga]] join in on the goofy dancing. "Enter Braying's" broadway dance and "The Case of the Disappeared Donkey's" jazz band gig are key examples.

Later on he checks on Rabbit, who has decided to celebrate tending to his garden by dancing to some samba records.

[[caption-width-right:350:[[Series/ILoveLucy Owl, you got some 'splainin' to do!]]]]
!![[Disney/WinnieThePooh The 2011 film]]
* When Christopher Robin tries telling everyone about Eeyore's missing tail:
-->'''Christopher Robin:''' Something tragic has befallen a member of our community! I present to you, Exhibit A! [''camera pans to Eeyore'']\\
'''Kanga:''' Oh! That ''is'' tragic.
* Eeyore's various replacement tails, which include a weathervane, a chalkboard (with "TAEL" written on it, no less), an ''anchor'', and a '''paragraph'''.
* When all the group but Piglet gets trapped in a hole, Rabbit asks him if he could knot the ropes together.
-->'''Piglet:''' Sorry, I cannot.\\
'''Rabbit:''' So you can knot?\\
'''Piglet:''' No, I cannot knot.\\
'''Rabbit:''' Not knot?\\
'''Pooh:''' [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Who’s there?]]\\
'''Rabbit:''' Pooh...\\
'''Pooh:''' [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Pooh who?]]
* B'loon's appearances just keep getting funnier and funnier because everyone's treating it like an actual character when all it does is float around.
** Rabbit and Piglet's panicked "Wait! B'loon! Don't leave!" and "You're the only one who can get us out of here!" is particularly funny -- they honestly sound on the verge of despair because they think the balloon is deserting them in their time of need.
** Right after the balloon "deserts" them, Eeyore just says in the most depressed, drawn out and monotone way he can muster, "We're all gonna die", while everyone else just goes silent and looks at him in horror. Rabbit especially is visibly frozen for a few seconds. It becomes even funnier when you realize he just said this in front of a small child (Roo) and when you consider that this is Winnie the Pooh for goodness sake!
** [[spoiler:And then B'loon, ''despite being a normal, non-sentient balloon'' manages to end up taking all the credit for finding Christopher Robin and getting the animals out of the pit. And then floats away with the prize honey. What a {{Jerkass}} CompanionCube!]]
*** Icing on the cake: [[spoiler:As B'loon floats away with the honeypot tied to its string,]] Pooh just stares at the scene with a look of ''total dumbstruck defeat.'' Then when Eeyore walks up to him, Pooh makes this comment:
---->'''Pooh:''' Ever have one of those days where you just can't win, Eeyore?
* When the entire gang (save for Piglet) falls into the Backson pit and Piglet is scared to go into the woods and search for help, Owl [[spoiler: ''[[RememberedICouldFly flies out of the Backson pit]]'', gives Piglet a speech to send him on his way, and then ''flies back'' into the pit. Guess what the gang first mentions to Owl? '''[[TooDumbToLive How good his speech was.]]''']]
* Rabbit's horrified expression when Piglet [[spoiler:off-handedly produces a rope to rescue the six of them from the pit... [[LiteralMinded and then cuts it into six pieces, one for each of them]]]].
-->'''Rabbit:''' Why didn't we think to bring a rope?\\
'''Piglet:''' Well, there is this rope!\\
[''cue an Epic Face from Rabbit'']
* Eeyore got a lot of funny moments in the movie, but many of them were simply giving flat or wide-eyed looks to the audience.
-->'''Eeyore:''' [[ThisIsGonnaSuck Something tells me I was better off with Tigger.]] ''*The others throw his anchor "tail" into the pit*'' Yep.
** Let's not forget this:
--->'''Eeyore:''' [''singing''] Found this anchor over there, now it's on my derriere. Not that anybody'd care.
* TheStinger. All of it. [[spoiler: The Backson was real all along, looks exactly as described... and is picking up the objects left in the forest to return them to their rightful owner before falling into the pit.]]
** [[spoiler:Not to mention his voice, which is that of gentle and enthusiastic Huell Howser.]]
--> [[spoiler:'''The Backson''': Oh my gosh! Is this a pit? I think I'm in a pit!]]
* Tigger bouncing B'loon because B'loon was "sneaking up on" Pooh. And the tide turns soon afterward when B'loon "sneaks up" behind Tigger, attaches to him with static electricity, and so on. When Pooh suggests that it seems B'loon wants to stick with Tigger, suddenly Tigger gets excited about the idea of having a sidekick! "But no-- [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies what if something happened to the poor guy]]?"
* Tigger dragging Eeyore along as his "Tigger 2". The ''entire sequence''. And Eeyore cleverly escapes it by diving underwater and breathing through a reed. Later, while they're in the pit together, Eeyore makes a comment that emphasizes how much he didn't enjoy it (and could even double as an insult, but he didn't really say it in a mean-spirited way):
-->'''Eeyore:''' The most wonderful thing about Tiggers is... you're the only one.
* Pooh's hunger-induced auditory, and then visual, hallucinations. What a heck of a DisneyAcidSequence.
* Owl, Rabbit, Kanga, and Piglet trying to corner what they believe to be the Backson:
-->'''Kanga''': Ohh, no, no, nonononoo... [''lifts up Roo, grinning ear to ear''] I'm with child!\\
'''Roo:''' [''completely [[DeadpanSnarker deadpan]], glaring down at Piglet''] Send the ''pig''!
** And after Piglet faints, Rabbit suggests they all go, but when they hear Pooh, the scared face Rabbit makes is so priceless.
* During the Backson song, one of Kanga's ideas for a horrible thing the monster does is stealing a person's youth, including an [[ImagineSpot Imagine Spot]] of the Backson holding a mirror up to her face, where her reflection becomes old and wrinkly. Her resulting scream, and the idea that ''[[TeamMom Kanga]]'' may be terrified of old age, is hilarious.
* The whole "issue" gag between Pooh, Eeyore, and Owl.
-->'''Owl''': Yes, well, the thing to do is as follows: First, issue a reward--
-->'''Pooh''': Gesundheit.
-->'''Owl''': I beg your pardon?
-->'''Pooh''': Well, you sneezed just as you were going to tell me what the first thing to do was.
-->'''Owl''': I didn't sneeze.
-->(''Pooh and Eeyore look at each other'')
-->'''Eeyore''': Oh, you did, Owl.
-->'''Owl''': No, I didn't! You can't sneeze without knowing it!
-->'''Pooh''': [[InsaneTrollLogic Well, you can't know it without something haven't been sneezed.]]
-->''[{{Beat}}]''
-->'''Owl''': As I was saying, first: issue a reward--
-->'''Pooh''': He's doing it again. You must be catching a cold.
-->'''Eeyore''': [[DeadpanSnarker I'll probably catch it too.]]
-->'''Owl''': [''frustrated''] No, no, no! I'm not catching a cold! The word is ISSUE, not AH-CHOO! And 'ah-choo' isn't even a word! It's just some sort of sneezy sound, like 'Ah-choo!'
-->'''Pooh''': Perhaps you should lie down, Owl.
-->'''Owl''' : (''FacePalm and falls over backwards'') Oh!
* During the "setting-the-trap" montage, Rabbit surfaces from the water and makes a variety of odd gestures to communicate a plan to Pooh and Piglet. The gestures are funny enough. What really nails it, though, is when Pooh and Piglet (possibly like the audience) don't understand one bit of what Rabbit is trying to tell them. So they just look confusedly at each other and then wave at Rabbit cheerfully. Cue an epic FacePalm from Rabbit.
* When Christopher Robin returns and reveals that Owl was wrong about the Backson, the others all slowly look at Owl and [[DeathGlare glare]] at him. Owl laughs nervously as he realizes his mistake... and ''[[ScrewThisImOuttaHere runs like hell!]]''

Added DiffLines:

* In "The Case of the Disappeared Donkey" where Tigger takes on a super sleuth role, and confuses everyone by monologuing his detective work to the screen. Rather ironic for a show with NoFourthWall.
-->'''Pooh:''' Erm, Tigger....Who are you talking to?
-->'''Tigger:''' NOBODY! ''*AsideGlance*'' I told him I wasn't talking to nobody, or anybody. You get the idea.
-->'''Pooh:''' I'm rather confused.
