Tigger Movie, The (film)

Tigger Movie, The (film) As the gang is busy preparing a suitable winter home for Eeyore, Tigger interrupts their efforts with his boisterous bouncing. Rabbit suggests Tigger find some other tiggers to bounce with. Tigger thinks the suggestion absurd, since he is the only one, but then he decides that being the one and only can be kind of lonely. So he begins thinking that there must be other tiggers out there. This leads him on an amazing journey through the Hundred Acre Wood in search of the “biggest and bestest” family tree around. When his search proves fruitless, Tigger’s pals try to cheer him up by masquerading as his family and dressing up in tigger costumes. This only serves to deepen Tigger’s longing and he stubbornly bounces off into a cold winter storm to find his reclusive relatives. Pooh, Piglet, Rabbit, Roo, and Eeyore become concerned and form a search party to find him. In the end, Tigger’s heart leads him home and he comes to realize that his family has always been with him–those friends who love and care for him. Directed by Jun Falkenstein.
