Awesome / The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

Go To

  • In the episode "Gone with the Wind", Piglet flies by himself on pinwheel power to save Pooh from falling to his imminent doom. Say what you will, but that's pretty awesome to behold.
  • In the episode "The Piglet Who Would Be King", during a volcano eruption, Piglet of all people gives an inspiring pep talk to a village of Piglies, proving that he had the chops to be their king.
    Piglet: "I may be little, but the Piglies look up to me."
  • Rabbit instantly dropping attention from his garden to save a baby Kessie trapped in the gust at the start of "Find Her, Keep Her". Despite the blizzard sending the gang hurtling into the air themselves, Rabbit still manages to scoop Kessie up with Pooh's honeypot.
    • Kessie later returning the favour by mastering her flying to save a falling Rabbit. Unfortunately the turn of events still leads to quite a Tear Jerker.
    • Earlier in the episode, Kessie, still unable to fly, seeming falls to her death down a cliff. Owl flies by and seems to be Comically Missing the Point, though seconds later it is revealed to Tigger and Rabbit that he did indeed fly Kessie to safety.
  • In "A Bird in the Hand", Kessie, having grown up and returned after the events of "Find Her, Keep Her", outsmarts Stan and Heff after she and her friends are kidnapped by them (long story). Also a Funny Moment.
  • Christopher Robin managed to get one in "Cleanliness is Next to Impossible." He uses a vacuum cleaner to suck up Crud and Smudge. Now bear in mind that this vacuum was going to be used by Crud to expel grime all over the world, Christopher Robin just simply reversed it to suck him in.

  • In "Me and My Shadow," when Piglet realizes that his shadow is missing, he ventures out in the middle of the night, by himself, and saves it from two monstrous tree shadows.
  • Pooh gets one in "The Great Honey Pot Robbery." When Stan and Heff bring Wooster to help steal honey, instead of cowering like the others, Pooh instead offers to share the honey and be Wooster's friend. It works.
    • Hell the whole episode, Pooh seems to holding the Smart Ball tighter than anyone else. He manages to create an impressive Rube Goldberg Device to trap Stan and Heff (though Tigger botches it) and he later matter of fact pinpoints all the flaws in Gopher's security procedures. He was aware from very early on that the others' tactics against the two likely wouldn't work and when finally given the chance, he owns them. Utterly. Just by being Pooh.
  • A villainous example. Nasty Jack gets a major one by being by far the most competent and intelligent villain in the Winnie the Pooh franchise. His intelligence is shown in many of his actions, including (1) effortlessly stopping the gang's attempted rescue of Rabbit by being Crazy-Prepared, (2) being the only one to see through Pooh and Eeyore's admittedly Paper-Thin Disguise when no one else could, (3) using this information to easily capture them so they can't save Piglet, and (4) subverting Pooh and Eeyore's Big Damn Heroes at the end by simply stepping out of the way of their minecart. This last one is especially awesome because he is actively defying the Show Within a Show nature of the episode, as that part was not in the script. The only reason the heroes triumph in the end is because he undergoes a Heel–Face Turn.

  • In "How Much Is That Rabbit In The Window?", Rabbit creates an impressive scarecrow mech hybrid out of Bamboo Technology to chase the crows out of his garden. Just the nonchalent way he builds it while moaning about the others comes off as understatedly clever for a Pooh character.
    Rabbit: Oh right you flea bitten excuses for birds......RAAGGHHH!!!! *chases crows, panic ensues*


How well does it match the trope?
