Storyline

Pooh is back and this time he's gonna blow you away. Almost literally. When Pooh's friend Gopher warns him that it's Windsday, Pooh goes off to wish Piglet a Happy Windsday, but Piglet is lifted into the air by the strong winds, Pooh grabs Piglet's scarf, which unravels into a single string, and looks to be flying Piglet like a kite. They arrive at Owl's house, the wind blows it down and Owl inquires as to whether Pooh did it. Eeyore agrees to find a new house for Owl, but one night, Pooh gets a visit from an unusual new friend - Tigger, a rambunctious tiger who likes honey but hates it just the same, and warns Pooh about Heffalumps and Woozles, who steal honey. But Heffalumps and Woozles are only half of Pooh's worries now, for a huge rain storm has set on the Hundred Acre Wood. Everybody is swimming in their homes. Pooh inadvertently saves Piglet from a waterfall so they have a hero party. Eeyore then barges in and announces he has found a new home for Owl; unfortunately the house ...

Hello! I'm Tigger! T-I-double Ger. That spells Tigger!
28 July 2007 | by (The world of artists) – See all my reviews

"Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day", the second of the Winnie the Pooh's shorts, introduces us the characters that were missing in the first one: Piglet (who becomes Pooh's best friend) and the very humorous and super-amusing Tigger.

It has all of the qualities already seen in the first one, including cheerful songs such as "The Wonderful Thing About Tiggers", "Hip Hip Pooh-ray!" and "The Rain Rain Rain Came Down Down Down".

This one has a funny plot as well. In the first part of the story, Winnie the Pooh wishes a «Happy winds-day» to his friends (because it's a very windy day), starting with Piglet. The second part of the story takes place later, while Pooh's in bed and hears strange noises and decides to open the door anyway (after all, he's not the smartest bear in the world). This visit is... Tigger! Tigger is so funny! I love his remarkable personality, his sense of humor, his singing and his bounces! It's impossible not to like Tigger! During the third part of our story, there's a rain storm and a Hero Party that becomes a Two Hero Party, celebrated by Cristopher Robin and his pals.

The Owl is a character that loves to talk. Once he starts, he doesn't stop and he dislikes to be interrupted, although he is always polite.

The Gopher appears in this one too, but he's not in the book, you know. My favorite Piglet's line is «Oh, dear! Oh, d-d-d-dear-dear!».

My least favorite part is Pooh's dream about "hefalumps and woozels" trying to steal his honey. Nevertheless, it's bizarre, original and creative. I can't help but think of the "Pink Elephants" sequence from "Dumbo", because they're both so odd.

Initially I had doubts about the sex of Rabbit and Piglet because their voices sound somewhat feminine.

Well, T-T-F-N! Ta-ta for now! :D
