*And the forest purified(Friends vs the High Council)him or it happens after [[WesternAnimation/MonstersInc. the movie.]]


Owl's ultimate goal is to find someone to read his memoir to in order to fulfill his self-indulgent needs. He figures that Pooh is the most easily manipulated, so he sees to it that Pooh has no access to honey by way of taking all of Pooh's personal honey in the middle of the night (thus giving Pooh a reason to leave his house at all), stealing Eeyore's tail and making sure that the best tail choices in the contest go to other characters so that THEY would get the pot of honey instead of Pooh, and making up the story about the Backson so that everyone would be out looking for it all day and Pooh would be as hungry as possible by the end of the day. Owl makes the only honey accessible to Pooh the honey at his own house, and offers Pooh honey on the condition that he sit and listen to him read from his autobiography. This all makes Owl a MagnificentBastard.

[[WMG: Tiggers are animals in the vein of Heffalumps and Woozles.]]
They are purportedly "fierce" and are also a misspelling/ mispronunciation of an animal's name.

Added DiffLines:

** Christopher Robin's mother appears quite a few times in The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, so this is not true.



to:

* Gopher = CR's subconscious aggression, if Gopher's tendency to think explosions are the answer to everything is any indication.

** Naaaah. That would go totally against the original books, where Tigger is Kanga's ''adopted son'' and ends up living with Kanga and Roo as Roo's "brother." While he lives on his own in the Disney version, the original book relation is sort-of alluded to in ''The Tigger Movie'', when Roo wishes for Tigger to be his big brother, and Tigger at the end of the movie calls Roo "my bestest little brother." The Disney adaptations do take a lot of liberties with the original novels, but they generally stay fairly true to the ''spirit'' of them, and such a major change would completely alter that spirit.

[[WMG: Christopher Robin told [[PassingTheTorch Darby to take over from him]]]]
Think about this for a moment. Christopher Robin knew his time was coming when he couldn't play with Pooh Bear and the others anymore. There was not many friends he could trust, but Darby however, was one of the lucky few he could trust... trust especially with his secret. Eventually, Darby was the new leader of the gang.


''ThePrincessAndTheFrog'' was an experiment to see if hand-drawn animated films, done the traditional way, are still profitable. Sadly, it never gave a clear answer since even though it was very profitable. It had to compete against 3 other blockbuster heavy-weights in theaters, Disney was expecting ''record-breaking'' ticket sales akin to ''Disney/TheLionKing'', and it was not released in 3D. ''Winnie The Pooh'' was released 2 years later, and even though it was planned before anyone knew ''Princess'' wouldn't live up to Disney's expectations, ''Winnie'' is only under an hour long, and was done for a fraction of the budget ''Princess'' was. The whole setup felt like a big "screw it let's end in a putter" situation. As of 2012, there are no plans for another hand-drawn animated film from Disney. '''''...think about it.'''''

[[WMG: The meaning of Ther]]
Christopher Robin's father, upon hearing Winnie The Pooh's name, says that he can't be called Winnie, if he is a boy. To which Christopher replies, that's why he added the 'ther'. It's pretty well understood that neither Christopher, nor any of the 100 acre woods' inhabitants are particularly good at spelling. Perhaps the 'ther' then is to Christopher, the same as the "-pher" in his own name, without it what is left is what sounds like Christie. So to Christopher, it is this suffix, '-ther/-pher' that makes an otherwise feminine name masculine.

[[WMG: Eeyore wasn't always a donkey]]
Originally Eeyore was a real boy but then after a trip to [[Disney/{{Pinocchio}} Pleasure Island]], he was turned into a donkey. Being a donkey that could still talk, Eeyore wasn't sold off to slave labor right away. Being smart enough to figure out how to escape, Eeyore left the Island, only without a tail. Also, the magic that turned Eeyore into a donkey is also what has kept him alive for a long time, making his life long and agonizing.

** Jossed by the first film ''and'' by the book. They both say that Eeyore was always a plush donkey "stuffed with sawdust".


** Uh... or ''eeew,'' considering that Tigger is Kanga's ''adopted son'' in the original books.
*** They never really took that "adopted son" thing into the movies. In ''The Tigger Movie'' they showed him living in a treehouse by himself...but, based on the books, I'd always imagined that he was kind of like a teenager with his first apartment.
