The Tigger Movie (2000) Script

Now, this might be the room of any small boy, but it happens to belong to a boy named Christopher Robin.

And, like most small boys, Christopher Robin had toy animals to play with.

And, together, they had many remarkable adventures in an enchanted place called the Hundred Acre Wood.

But of all his animal friends, Christopher Robin's very best friend was a bear called Winnie the Pooh.

Winnie the Pooh? Wait half a darn minute.

It seems to me that most of these stories are about that silly old bear.

Well, then, Tigger, who should this story be about?

Well, I happen to know someone who's extremely fascinatin'.

Not to mention handsome and debonair-y.

But the title already says "Winnie the Pooh."

That's easy to fix.

There. Now that's a wonderful title.

And speakin' of wonderful things...

j& The wonderful thing about Tiggers is Tiggers are wonderful things j& j& Their tops are made out of rubber Their bottoms are made out of springs j& j& They're bouncy, trouncy flouncy, pouncy j& j& Fun, fun, fun, fun, fun j& j& But the most wonderful thing about Tiggers is j& j& I'm the only one j& j& Tiggers are cuddly fellas Tiggers are awfully sweet j& j& Everyone el-es is jealous That's why I repeat and repeat j& j& The wonderful thing about Tiggers is Tiggers are marvellous chaps j& j& They're loaded with vim and with vigour, they love to leap in your laps j& j& They're jumpy, bumpy, clumpy, pumpy j& j& Fun, fun, fun, fun, fun j& j& But the most wonderful thing about Tiggers is j& j& I'm the only one I'm the only... j&

Hello. I'm Tigger. That's T-I-double-geh-er.

And that's me.

I know. You've bounced me lots and lots of times.

Yeah. Fun, ain't it?

Say, you wanna go bouncin' with me?

On account of bouncin's what Tiggers do the best.

I'd go bouncing with you, Tigger, except that I must count all these honey pots to be sure that I have enough for winter.

Let me get that, please!

Bother.

What do these Pooh Bears like about this icky, sticky stuff anyway?

Well, no time for goofin' off! I got dawdlin' to do!

T-T-F-N. Ta-ta for now.

Oh, dear, dear...

Hiya, Piglet, ol' pal!

What say you and I do a little bouncin' together?

Bouncing?

Oh, my. I haven't enough firewood to last the winter, -and... -Why, sure you do.

Why, there's lots of firewood. It's lyin' all over the place.

-Whoa! -There! See?

Now we could go bouncin'.

But I would really rather prefer that my firewood not have quite so much chair in it.

Well, then... T-T-F-N! Gotta be bouncin' along.

Well, hello there, and good mornin', Mrs. Kanga, ma'am!

Well, good morning, Tigger, dear.

She called me "dear."

Pardon me for askin', but you wouldn't happen to be interested in doin' a bit of bouncin' with me, would ya?

Well, I'm afraid I have just too much to do this morning, dear.

Well, if you have to.

See ya later. Bye.

Tigger, Tigger! Tigger.

I wonder why nobody wants to bounce with me.

Oh, well, what am I talkin' about?

There's plenty of others I haven't even asked yet.

And so, the others all came round to see what they might do to help.

But the end of Eeyore's house was merely the beginning of a very unfortunate day.

Wow. Look at the size of it.

Your attention, please.

I have officially completed the plans.

What plans?

The plans. For removing this boulder, and restoring to Eeyore his happy home.

No need to bother on my account.

All we need is a little team effort.

Rabbit's Rock Remover.

Now, then.

Pooh Bear! Release the counterweight!

Kanga and Roo, start pressurising the granite extractor.

Piglet!

Piglet, start pulling your own weight over there.

But I don't weigh anything.

Now, now, a little more over there.

Yes, that's good. No, no, no.

No. More pulling over here.

This way. That's right. All right now. Oh, good.

-I think... -Bother.

Oh, my.

Well, now, why didn't it work? Let's see here now.

The counterweight...

Perhaps we could use another helping hand.

Yes, all we really need is...

Tigger!

Hello, you blokes! Anyone up for a little bouncin'?

No! No! No bouncing!

Look! Just look at all this work we have to do!

What? Movin' that old thing?

Not a problem. All you need is a little bouncin'.

How will bouncing move the rock, Tigger?

Tut, tut, tut. Not now, Piglet.

If maybe we had a little...

Right there!

"Bouncing will move this boulder."

It's almost amusing.

Help!

Wow.

Now that that's outta the way, who's up for a little bouncing?

What is it with you and bouncing?

Just look at my rock remover!

Everything's ruined.

And all you can think about is bouncing!

But that's what Tiggers do best.

Exactly.

Unlike us.

I'm afraid he's right, dear.

What we're trying to say is that we really can't bounce like Tiggers, anyway, because...

We're not Tiggers.


Who needs them other fellas anyhow?

j& Mostly I'm happy and I'm bouncy j& j& Because I am the onliest one j& j& But now all at once I feel so lonely j& j& For someone like me j& j& Someone like me j& j& Right now I'm sorta feeling downcy j& j& I'm just about the loneliest one j& j& And deep in my heart I'm sorta wishin' j& j& For someone like me j& j& Someone like me j& j& Somebody with springs and things j& j& Who laughs and sings j& j& And jumps every day j& j& Somebody who's fun, fun, fun j& j& Who loves to trounce and pounce j& j& And bounce their gloomies away j&

j& How I dream there is another A double j& j& Or a triple of me j& j& To keep him company j& j& But since I'm awake I feel so lonely j& j& Because I know it can't be j& j& It never can be j& j& Bein' that I'm the one and onliest j& j& Someone like me j&

Tigger?

Don't be sad, Tigger.

Why don't you go bouncing? That'll cheer you up.

No one to bounce with, Roo Boy.

Well, what about another Tigger?

Another Tigger?

No, it's... It's impossibibble.

It's crazy. I'm the onliest one.

But aren't there other Tiggers?

I've got a mama. Don't you have a family somewhere, too?

Why, that's...

I mean...

A family full of Tiggers, you say.

Can you imaginate such a thing?

There'd be more Tiggers than you could stick a shake at!

And we'd all be bouncin'!

Bouncin' mornin', noon and nighty-night!

But I could still bounce with you, right, Tigger?

My very own Tigger family!

You wish to find your family.

A most noble quest indeed.

Here we are.

Help yourself to the cream and sugar.

The search for Familius Genus Tiggeris.

That is Latin, I believe. Or is it Greek?

Speaking of family, why, my very own family portraits hang right over there, a collection I've gathered throughout the years.

Notice the interesting twists and turns of its many branches stretching out across the ages.

It all comes from having strong roots, you know, and plenty of time to grow.

In fact, I do believe that the very seed of my family began to germinate as far back as the 14th century when a great-great-great-grand Uncle Torbett of mine went out on a limb and proclaimed his blossoming love to a blooming young maid. As their love blossomed, they eventually were blessed with nine fine, young saplings.

Never a bough did break in that...

Oh, my dear boy, are you quite all right?

Have some more tea.

Anyway, if I may go out on a limb here, I would first and foremost suggest for Tigger that to find one's family, one must first look up one's family tree.

It does bring to mind a distant nephew of mine.

A handsome fellow who became a sailor and fell in with a member of the feline...

My family tree.

My family tree!

Why didn't I think of thinkin' of that?

So long, Beak Lips! Thanks for the tip!

I say, was it something I said?

And so began Tigger's grand search for his family tree.

He searched high.

He searched low.

He searched near.

And he searched far.

Yoo-hoo!

Family!

Halloo!

Tigger, how are you gonna know which tree is your family tree?

Why, that's obvious, Roo Boy.

My Tigger family tree has got to be the biggest, hugest and most gigantical tree in the entire Hundred Acre Woodses on account of all the enormous, numerical, numerous numbers of Tigger family members that'll be on it.

And besides, and furthermore, it'll be all stripedy, just like yours truly.

The only question is, where could my family tree be?

There.

Good as new, or maybe even better, if I do say so myself.

Could be a bit drafty.

Might leak some.

Sorta lopsided.

Kinda cramped.

Otherwise, a dream house.

Hiya, Donkey Boy!

-Tigger! -Tigger!

Tigger!

Back to his bouncy old self.

Is this perhaps a Tigger family tree up there?

Were you asking us to bounce with you?

Because, you see, we would be glad to...

Halloo! Tigger family!

Halloo!

No, not this one.

-Halloo! Other Tiggers! -Halloo! Other Tiggers!

Come out, come out, wherever you are and aren't!

-Come out, come out... -Et cetera! Halloo!

-Halloo! -Tigger's family!

Pooh Bear? I didn't know Tigger had a family.

Yes. Only it appears that he has lost them.

Seemed to be lookin' for 'em.

Was that something we were supposed to be doing, too?

Why, I believe it must be, Piglet.

I quite often remember to forget these sorts of things.

Aren't you coming, Rabbit?

To look for more Tiggers?

As if one wasn't bad enough!

No, no! No! I have too many winter preparations to make!

And if you three had any sense, you'd be doing the same.

Come on.

-Hallooo! Hallooo! -Hallooo!

-Tiggers! -Tiggers!

Come out, come out, wherever you aren't.

-Hallooo! Tiggers! -Where aren't those Tiggers anyway?

We looked every which and where.

Not to mention right over there.

And not a single stripedy tree in sight.

Maybe I been goin' about this all the wrong way upside-down.

Maybe what I need to do is find some sort of clue as to where are their whereabouts.

What kind of clue?

Maybe in here. Some thingamabob or an heiry-loom or something.

Maybe this belonged to my uncle!

Whatever. And just think, if there are other Tiggers, we could all bounce the Whoop-de-Dooper, Loop-de-Looper, Ali-Ooper Bounce! 'Cause it's the bounce that Tiggers do best.

The Whoop-de-what-do... What kind of bounce?

You know, that bounce I bounced when I bounced that big rock.

The most hardest bounce of them all, that only the very bestest bouncers can bounce.

Only the very bestest bouncers can bounce it.

Could my auntie have made this for me?

I could bounce it.

It looks like she made a pair.

If you could teach me the Whoopy-Super-Duper Bounce, -then I could... -Teach ya the W-D-double-L-A-O-B?

Why... What? That's ridickerous!

It's a very powerful bounce!

And it's only for professional bouncers.

-But I'm a real good bouncer. -Yeah.

No offence there, Roo Boy, but I think you're a little on the smallish side of tiny, and kinda lackin' in perpendicaler.

I could do the Whooper Dooper...

The Looper Dooper...

If you teach me!

You can't bounce the bounce if you can't even pronounce the bounce!

Repeat after Tigger. j& The Whoop-de-Dooper Loop-de-Looper, Ali-Ooper Bounce! j& j& The Whoop-de-Dooper Loop-de-Looper, Ali-Ooper Bounce! j& j& It's got the zip that makes you flip And that's what really counts! j& j& In the Whoop-de-Dooper Loop-de-Looper, Ali-Ooper Bounce! j&

Now, half this bounce is 90% mental.

If you calculate the specific Tiggerjectory of your stripecelleration diviferous by the square boot of your rebounce, your vertical situituation indicator and your stripersonic springnertia should rikatikachet your hydranific ful-silly-age into an accelerometric de-orbit!

Any questions?

When do I get to learn the Whooping-Looper-Whooper...

I mean, the Ooper-Dooper-Whooper... j& The Whoop-de-Dooper Loop-de-Looper, Ali-Ooper Bounce j& j& The more you try, the more you fly And that's what really counts j& j& In the Whoop-de-Dooper Loop-de-Looper, Ali-Ooper Bounce j&

Now, ya swing your legs up high. And you twist your tail in tight.

Wind up all yer springs and, with your eyes fixated straight ahead, you let it all loose!

Is this right? j& It's best when done by Tiggers 'Cause our Tiggerific figgers j& j& Are filled with vims and viggers And that's the thing that triggers j& j& The Whoop-de-Dooper Loop-de-Looper, Ali-Ooper Bounce j& j& The Whoop-de-Dooper Loop-de-Looper Ali-Ooper Bounce j& j& The more you try the more you fly And that's what really counts j& j& lt activates, it elevates Accelerates and more j& j& You're bouncin' off the ceiling Like you never did before! j& j& -The Whoop-de-Dooper -Whoop-de-Dooper j& j& -Loop-de-Looper -Loop-de-Looper j& j& Ali-Ooper j& j& Bounce j&

Wow!

Now me! Now me!

Wait a minute.

We haven't gone over the safety rules and regularations.

Rule number one. Always bounce in a well-lit area.

Rule number the-next-one. Never bounce near an open flame.

Rule three. Never bounce right after eatin', -or you'll get tail cramps. -First you...

Rule number four. Do not forget rule number three.

-Let it all loose... -Never bounce when exhausticated.

Rule number seven...

I think you let it a little too loose.

Maybe another lesson?

I could...

What is this doohickey?

No. Why, that's no doohickey.

It's a thingamabob.

Been in the family for generations.

And I never even knew I had it.

This is the exact thingamabob I was lookin' for.

And it must have a picture of my Tigger family inside it.

Oh, boy!

I can't wait! I'll bet I got my mother's eyes.

And my father's tail. And one of my sisters' chins, of course.

My grandpappy's stripes.

It's kinda... Sorta...

Empty. Completely Tiggerless.

How am I supposed to find my family now?

Maybe there's another way to reach 'em.

Another way?

A letter!

Why don't you write 'em a letter?

-Halloo! -Hello?

-Halloo out there! -Hello? Tigger's family?

-Tigger's family tree! -Hello!

How will we know a Tigger family member when we see one?

I suspect that he, or she, would be rather more bouncy than usual, Piglet.

I found 'em. Tigger's family.

-Really? -Well, Eeyore.

Here they are. Bouncin' like anything.

Stripes and all.

No need to thank me.

Do these particular Tiggers seem rather strange to you, Piglet?

Yes, and rather fierce.

Still, I suppose you never can tell with Tiggers.

Pardon me, Mr. or Mrs. Tigger.

But could you, perhaps, accompany me back to Tigger's house?

He misses you very much, you see.

And he... Oh, bother.

Hello, Tigger family member.

I was wondering, that is, if you're not too busy to...

Whoa! Dear.

Sinkin'? Figures.

If I could just have a moment.

Please, come back!

We really need your help.

It would just take a minute! Oh, bother.

Nice Tigger.

I don't remember Tiggers being quite this slippery!

-Do you, Pooh? -Well, now that I think of it, I don't remember a Tigger making quite that sort of sound, either.

-Piglet? -Yes, Pooh Bear?

I don't think these are the right sort of Tiggers after all.

Not that anyone'll miss me.

Let me see, now.

"Dear T-I-double-geh-ers... Tiggers.

"Greetin's and salivatin's.

"Please drop by any ol' time

"on account of my house is your house, "and vicey-versey. Love, Tigger!"

There. That oughta do it.

Now there's nothing to do but wait.

-Hello, Tigger's family. -Hello?

-Tigger's family? -Hallo? Are you up there?

Anybody out there?

Why, if my tummy is not mistaken, this particular family tree is a bee sort of family tree.

And where there are bees, there's honey.

I think there may be something moving in this tree.

Do you think it could be Tigger's family up there, Pooh Bear?

I suppose there's only one way to find out, Piglet.

Just as my tummy suspected.

Bother.

If only these bees were a bit less busy.

Perhaps if I hummed a soothing sort of song, j& like such. j& j& Go to sleep... Quiet j& j& If you're a bee j& j& Lullaby j&

j& Lullabee, lullabee j& j& Honey bees in the tree j& j& Rest your wings j& j& Till the morning light j& j& Lullabee, lullabee j& j& Honey bees in the tree j& j& Your honey j& j& Is safe tonight j& j& Just dream to the tune I am singing j& j& Time to stop All that buzzing j& j& And stinging j& j& Lullabee, lullabee j& j& Honey bees in the tree j& j& All I want is a smackrel j& j& Or two j& j& Or three j& j& Don't sleep lightly j& j& Sleep very tightly j& j& Happy slumbers j& j& To you j&

Pooh Bear's been up in that tree an awful long time, don't you think?

Most likely he's stuck. Been known to happen.

Oh, dear.

Then, I better climb up and see if he's all right.

Pooh Bear, are you stuck?

Oh, bother.

Pooh Bear?

-Piglet? -Yes, Pooh?

I have come to the conclusion that these bees are definitely not the right sorts of Tiggers.

It doesn't look good.

Bees! Run!


At last, the day had come to an end, as days often will.

And what had begun as a very exciting idea had changed to a rather discouraging one.

Tigger?

I gotta go home now. Mama will be worried about me.

Tigger?

What, am I kiddin' myself?

They're not comin'.

'Cause I might as well face it.

There aren't any other Tiggers.

And, I guess that means this silly old thing's just gonna stay empty for all of forever.

But isn't that the wonderful thing about Tiggers?

-Bein' the only one? -You betcha, Roo Boy.

Oh, the most wonderful thing about Tiggers is I'm...

The very only, last, lonely, single, solitary one.

First, I...

And, just so...

And then I...

Like this.

And then a little twist, like such.

And then I let it all loose, with a...

Whatever are you doing, Roo dear?

I'm practising the Whoop-de-Doop-tee Bounce.

Maybe, if I do it really good for Tigger, he wouldn't miss not having a family so much.

But I can't bounce it yet.

Well, I'm sure you'll be able to do it in time, dear.

But Tigger seems awful lonely, don't you think, Mama?

I suppose he might be, every now and again.

-Mama? -Yes, dear?

I wish I had a big brother like Tigger.

Now, why wish that when you have a Tigger like Tigger?

'Cause then I'd be his little brother.

And he'd be just like one of our family.

-Wouldn't that be great? -But, Roo, dear, Tigger is one of our family.

And, as long as we care for him, he always will be.

Sweet dreams, Roo, dear.

I still wish I could do something to make him feel better.

I say, young Roo, if you suggest that a letter'll bring cheer to our friend Tigger, then we shall, by all means, write one.

Now, what sort of letter is this to be?

It's by us, from them, to him.

By which from what to whom?

From Tigger's family to Tigger.

Yes.

"Dear Tigger. Just a note to say..."

"Just a note to say..."

What shall it say?

Well...

I suppose it might say, "Dress warmly?"

I see. Excellent advice.

Owl?

Perhaps, "Eat well?"

Good point, Pooh Bear.

"Stay safe and sound?"

A very good idea, Piglet.

"Keep smilin'."

"We're always there for you."

"Wishing you all the best, signed, your family."

-There. -Won't Tigger be pleased?

-How wonderful for Tigger! -What a splendid idea, Roo.

-Nice sentiment. -Marvellous work, everyone.

And so, the next morning...

Hello, everybody!

Pooh Boy!

Piglet!

Kanga! Kanga! Roo! Roo! Roo!

Eeyore! Eeyore, old buddy!

Look at what I got! A letter! A letter for me, that's who!

T-I-double-geh-er spells Tigger!

I wonder who it might be from?

From my very own family. I knew I had one!

A great, big family! Full of uncles and aunties and grand-Tiggers! And second cousin Tiggers!

And they're all just like me!

Just imaginate it. Hundreds of thousands of Tiggers!

All bouncin' around up there, in our huge, gigantical family tree! j& There's momsey Tiggers j& j& And popsey Tiggers j& j& And Tiggers I never knew j& j& Like sister Tiggers And brother Tiggers j& j& And cousin Tiggers, too j& j& There's grandma Tiggers And grandpa Tiggers j& j& As you can plainly see j& j& When we're all together It's a jumpin' jamboree j& j& Round, round my family tree j& j& I look like them and they look like me j& j& Round, round my family tree We're a happy family j& j& There's huge slews of nephew Tiggers j& j& Uncle Tiggers by the ton j& j& Whippersnappin' great-great-grandpappy Tiggers j& j& And grandma Tiggers are fun j& j& Skinny, tiny, thin little Tiggers j& j& And roly-poly Tiggers, too j& j& But we're all relations And we're quite a mighty crew j& j& Round, round my family tree j& j& I look like them and they look like me j& j& The amazing Flying Tiggers! j& j& Round, round my family tree We're a happy family j& j& The firstest-most roots Of my family tree j& j& Reach way back in history j& j& To the braverest fiercerest j& j& Noblerest Tiggers You'd ever care to see j& j& The heroicest figgers Of my ancestor Tiggers j& j& Have always been hailed and cheered j& j& And the sculpturous grace Of our Tiggerous faces j& j& Is why we're all revered j& j& There were warrior Tiggers j& j& Explorier Tiggers j& j& And Tiggers of worldly acclaim j& j& There were glorious Phantasmagorious Tiggers j& j& With prizes and fortunes and fame j&

j& There's the glamorous branch And the amorous branch j& j& Of our fabulous family tree j& j& And when we sing together j& j& -We're in... -Perfect harmony j& j& Round and round my family tree j& j& I look like them and they look like me j& j& Round and round my family tree j& j& We're a happy family j&

j& There's momsey Tiggers j& j& And popsey Tiggers j& j& And Tiggers I never knew j& j& Like uncle Tiggers j& j& And nephew Tiggers j& j& And grandma Tiggers, too j& j& And when we Tiggers all get together j& j& We really have a ball! j& j& The bounciest j& j& Trounciest, flounciest Pounciest j& j& Most Tiggerificest j& j& Family reunion of all! j&

Everybody bounce. You know how to do it!

And I'm especially excited about this part.

They miss me somethin' awful, and they're comin' to see me!

Tomorrow!

Tomorrow?

Tigger, I can't wait to meet them.

Now, where did it say that, exactly?

Exackatackly nowhere, per se, 'cause with us Tiggers, you gotta read betwixt the lines.

I'm gonna see my whole family, 'cause my whole family is all comin' to see little ol' you-know-who!

But the most wonderful thing about Tiggers is I'm not the only one!

Now, Tigger was so enormously excited that his friends couldn't help but feel, well, a bit concerned.

Tigger?

-Hiya, Roo! -What are you doin', Tigger?

Why, I'm buildin' a family room onto my house, so my family will have plenty of room.

They gotta live somewheres after the big family reunitin' party.

-Party? -Why, sure!

Boy, it's gonna be great.

It's all right in my letter.

Speakin' of which, you wanna hear me read it once or thrice again?

-Tigger... -"Dear..."

They call me "dear." It's embarrassing, ain't it?

The way us Tiggers go oozin' oodles and doodles of affection.

-Yeah, but... -"Dear Tigger." Ya see that?

Us Tiggers always call us Tiggers by their firstest names.

"Dress warmly." They're worried sick about me.

"Eat well. Keep smilin'. Stay safe and sound."

And here is the best part of all.

"We're always there for ya."

Isn't this the all-time greatest?

Yeah, the greatest.

I was gonna tell him, but I couldn't.

Pooh, do you think you could?

Why, certainly, Roo.

Could what?

Tell him about the letter?

Why, certainly.

Could that be them already?

Tiggers are usually fashionabubbly late.

Welcome, dear brothers, to the house of Tigger.

Hiya, buddy bear.

Just in time to help me finish up with the finishin' up.

Hold these while I put those there.

Tigger, there was a very important matter, which I must discuss.

You're right, Pooh Boy!

I could use another balloon or two dozen!

Tigger.

Somethin' isn't right here.

Much better.

Now, what'd you wanna talk about, Pooh Boy? Pooh?

Perhaps I'll need a bit of help.

Tigger was so very excited, and had so very many things to do, he heard very little of what anyone else was saying.

But as it so happened, none of his friends had the heart to tell Tigger very much of anything, anyway.

Not like he won't find out for himself sooner or later.

The poor dear. He'll be so disappointed.

Dear.

Indeed. What have we done?

Or, perhaps his family will come, and everything will be fine.

That's it!

There! A veritable work of art.

And just how will this cheer up Tigger?

Well, the stripes look okay.

But what we have to do is act real Tiggery.

We gotta do a lot of bouncin' and say a lot of Tigger stuff.

Such as, "Hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo."

"Absoposilutely?"

That's kinda, sorta like Tigger, but... j& How to be a Tigger j& j& How to be a Tigger is up to you j& j& You've got to look like a Tigger j& j& And sound like a Tigger j& j& And act like a Tigger, too j& j& If we paint black stripes On our underwear j& j& And glue on whiskers, too j& j& We're bound to appear Far more as Tiggers do j&

Unquestionably. j& Maybe we could all say, "T-T-F-N" j& j& And shout, "Hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo" j& j& We all might sound A lot more Tiggerish, too j&

Do you think? j& And that is how to be a Tigger j& j& How to be a Tigger j& j& How to be a Tigger is up to you j& j& You've got to look like a Tigger Sound like a Tigger j& j& And act like a Tigger, too j& j& If we break things up And knock things down j& j& And leave the place a mess j& j& That's the thing that Tigger does the best j& j& I oughta know. j& j& And if I don't eat honey j& j& From the honey pot j& j& Ol' Tigger will plainly see j& j& I must be another Tigger j& j& Because I couldn't possibly be me j& j& And that is how to be a Tigger j& j& How to be a Tigger How to be a Tigger is up to you j& j& You've got to look like a Tigger And sound like a Tigger j& j& And act like a Tigger... j&

Also.

Thank goodness I found you all here.

There's a terrible storm headed for...

What on earth are you doing? Stripes? Springs?

Have you lost your minds? You should be covering windows, counting your supplies, gathering firewood!

Winter is here and you aren't even ready.

What are you doing wasting your time with...

What am I doing wasting my time?

I've got serious work to do!

At least I haven't lost sight of what's really important.

Well, I really didn't have enough time to gather any firewood.

I am down to this last, lonely honey pot.

Well, come to think of it, we don't really look or act very much like Tiggers.

Thought I was pretty convincing.

Wait! Wait! We gotta do it! We have to do it!

Think how sad Tigger's gonna feel.

Well, we don't really know how to be a Tigger.

Yeah, we do. j& If we could all be happy j& j& Full of friendliness and cheer j& j& He'll surely see we are his family j& j& We're filled with joy and laughter j& j& And the happiness he starts j& j& And feel it from the bottom of our hearts j&

j& And that is how to be a Tigger j& j& How to be a Tigger j& j& How to be a Tigger is up to you j& j& You've got to be like a Tigger j& j& Full of glee like a Tigger j& j& With a happy... j& j& -How to be a Tigger -How to be a Tigger j& j& How to be a Tigger is up to you j& j& You've got to be like a Tigger j& j& Full of glee like a Tigger j& j& With a happy hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo j&

I wonder where they could be.

What if they got the wrong directions?

What if they strayed off the beaten path?

What if they're out there, hopelessly lost?

Clutched in the cruel grapst of winter?

Hold on, Tiggers, I'm coming to get ya!

Surprise!

Is it? Is it?

Is it really you?

My very own, one and only family?

Come in. Come in. Come in.

Lots of catchin' uppin' we gotta do!

We haven't seen each other in...

We haven't seen each other!

Gee, it's nice to have all us Tiggers gettin' together like this. Huh?

-Oh, yes, yes. -It certainly is.

What am I... Where the heck are my mannerisms?

Refreshin' refreshyments for all, comin' right up!

Help yourself. Don't be shy.

Here you go! Take two, you're small.

I mean, they're small. Have another.

-Lot of vitamins and minerals... -Bother.

My, what a nice home you have.

Yes, and what lovely decorations.

So bouncety and stripedy.

Nice weather.

Party flavour?

Now this party's really startin' to pick up.

So what you been up to, cousin?

I've been...

Bouncin'. Bouncin', bouncin'!

Mornin' and noon, and noon to night.

Why, that's what I been doin', too!

It must run in the family. Hey!

Who's up for some family-type fun and games?

You look like a fun-lovin' type of fella.

I got a great party-type, family-type game we can play!

How about "Pin the tail on the..."

It looks like you already been playin' it.

Phew!

I know. Let's all do what Tiggers do best!

That would be bouncin', of course.

-Of course! Bouncing! -Absoposilutely.

-Yeah! -Let the bouncin' begin!

Yeah!

Bounce, bounce.

I do enjoy bouncing!

Don't bounce too high, now, Roo... Tigger.

Tigger, dear.

You certainly have a wonderful family, Tigger.

Wait a second!

We gotta bounce the Whoop-de-Dooper, Loop-de-Looper, Ali-Ooper Bounce!

What a Tiggerific idea!

Guests first.

Ya gotta swing your legs up high.

And ya twist yer tail in tight.

Ya wind up all yer springs.

And, with your eyes fixed straight ahead, ya let it all loose with a...


Roo, what are you doin' impersonisin' a Tigger?

Piglet?

Kanga.

Owl. Eeyore!

We only wanted to help, Tigger.

Now I understand. It was all a big joke.

Well, that's all right.

'Cause somewhere out there, there's a Tigger family tree full of my real Tigger family. I got a letter to prove it!

And I'm gonna find 'em.

So, T-T-F-E.

Ta-ta forever!


Poor Tigger. All alone in the cold.

He must be very sad, and perhaps lost.

And maybe even a bit...

...hungry.

Bother.

Pooh, you gotta help me find Tigger.

It's all my fault.

He never would've left if it wasn't 'cause of me.

I didn't mean to make him feel bad.

I just... I just wanted him to be my big brother.

We gotta go find him! We just gotta.

And so we will.

What we need is...

Think, think, think.

-An expotition. -An expotition?

Yes! To the place where Tigger is. Or was.

Or will be.

-I believe Rabbit should lead us. -Rabbit?

Oh, yes. He's the only one who ever says he knows what he's doing.

Absolutely not.

I mean, well, after all, he...

It was not my... He wanted to leave. Didn't he?

But, Rabbit...

He could always give that extra little push when you needed it.

Thank you, Roo.

It was nice to have him near when things were frightful.

Sorta lit up the room when he came in.

Well, you... What do you need me for?

Why don't you go find him yourselves?

But we're just not clever enough, Rabbit.

Rabbit? I miss him.

Well, I...

Very well.

Tigger!

-Tigger! -Tigger!

Now, now, careful, everyone.

It's a bit windy!

Are you all right, Eeyore? Eeyore?

Oh, dear.

-Help! -We must take care to stick together.

Perhaps not this stuck, Piglet.

Pardon me, Pooh.

-Tigger! -Tigger!

-Tigger! Tigger! -Tigger?

Tiggers!

Where are ya, Tiggerseses?

I hope they're all okay.

Tiggers!

Whoa! Whoa!


The biggest, hugest, and most gigantical stripedy tree in all the entire Hundred Acre Woodses!

Is it? Is it?

My family tree!

I found it! I found it! I can't believe it!

Halloo! Halloo up there!

Where are ya, Tiggers? It's me, Tigger!

Halloo!

Halloo, family! I got your letter, and I came to see ya.

Halloo!

Hallo?

Maybe they forgot I was comin'.

But I thought...

I thought you were always there for me.

Tigger!

-Where are you, Tigger? -Tigger!

-Thank... -Oh, you're welcome.

Tigger?

"Dear Tigger."

Tigger, is that you?

Tigger!

Tigger! It's me, Roo!

-Down here! -Oh, Tigger! Thank goodness!

-Tigger! -Tigger!

What? Hello? Did...

Could it be?

Look down here! We were worried!

It looks like the whole family is finally here!

I'm coming, Tiggers!

Tiggers! Tiggers!

-Hey, you're not Tiggers. -It's so wonderful to see you.

What are you guyses doing here?

Doing? What are we doing here?

We came all this way to look for you!

Now, forget about all this other Tiggers nonsense and come home.

Nonsense?

No!

No! No! No! No...

Are you... Are you crazy? It's not safe out here.

Exactakly! That's why you should all go home.

Where it is safe.

But I've gotta wait here, in my family tree, for my real family!

Family! Family! Family! Family! Family!

Is that a rumbly in your tumbly, Pooh?

I don't think so, Piglet.

Come on. Hurry it up! No time for dawdlin'.

Not a second to waste.

Watch yourself there, Roo Boy.

Take care, Pooh Bear.

Don't be scared, Piglet.

Up ya go, Donkey Boy!

Oh, help!

Tigger!

Oh, no!

The Whoop-de-Dooper Loop-de-Looper, Ali-Ooper Bounce!

The more you try, the more you fly. And that's what really counts!

Tigger! Tigger!

Wake up, Tigger! Wake up!


Tigger?

-Oh, we're saved! -Hooray!

-You saved him. You saved him. -That was just wonderful, Roo.

-Roo, that was very brave. -What a Whoop-de-Doopin', Loop-de-Loopin', Ali-Oopin' Bounce that was!

It was, wasn't it?

I mean, I really did it, didn't I?

Did ya?

Come here, you!

Why that bounce was just as good as any old Tigger...

Tigger family member.

Tigger?

Please don't go.

There they are!

We found them! We found them!

-There's Tigger! -Roo!

-Mama! Mama! -Oh, Roo, we've been searching all over for you.

Oh, Roo, dear, I was so worried.

I'm sorry, Mama. I'm all right.

-Oh, my little Roo. -Pooh Bear!

-Pooh Bear! -Christopher Robin.

Pooh Bear! Pooh!

There you are!

-Silly old bear. -Oh, my!

-Christopher Robin! -Nice to see you.

Where have you all been?

We were looking for Tigger looking for Tigger's family.

Tigger's family?

You didn't have to go looking for them.

But I got a letter and it said that...

That... It was right...

I musta lost it in the avalanchee.

I can't even remember the words.

"Dear Tigger. Just a note to say..."

-"Dress warmly." -"Eat well."

"Stay safe and sound."

-"Keep smilin'." -"We're always there for you."

"Signed..."

"Your family."

You mean, you fellas are my family?

I'm afraid we have nothing better to offer.

Well, of course not, Pooh Boy.

'Cause there's nothin' better than the best!

I shoulda seen it all along.

Spotted you a mile away!

Oh, it was very frightening.

And then the whole mountain came down on top of us, but Tigger saved us.

I wasn't worried at all.

Except for the part where I was worried, of course.

Ahem, ahoom and et cetera.

In honour of this most occasional occasion, my firstest ever family reunitin', I'd like to present each of ya with a present.

Firstest, for Eeyore,

a new family room for your lovely home.

Seems kinda big.

Bit on the comfy side. Not very drafty.

But I suppose I'll get used to it.

-I love parties. -How wonderful!

Lovely party, isn't it?

And for Pooh Boy, enough honey to last all winter!

Or till next Thursday, anyways.

Why, thank you, Tigger. It looks good enough to eat.

And for Piglet, ol' pal, a winter's worth of firewood. Keep warm.

-Oh, thank you, Tigger! -You're very welcome.

I picked out each piece myself.

And, for you, Long Ears, I promise, from now on, I'll always watch where I'm bouncin'.

Oh, thank you, Tigger.

Bravo, Tigger! Bravo, I say.

-Very well done indeed. -I'm very impressed.

-Thank you so much! -Thank you so much, Tigger.

Look at this!

Whoa!

You didn't think I was gonna disremember you, did ya?

Go on, go on. Open 'er up! It's all yours.

Is it really for me, Tigger?

Only the best for my bestest little brother.

Wait half a minute.

We still need a family portrait to put in it.

Look this way, everybody. Closer.

Smile.
