Rabbit is tired of Tigger always bouncing him, so he get's Pooh and Piglet together to come up with an idea to get the bounce out of Tigger. Rabbit suggests they take him into the middle of nowhere and leave him overnight. The idea backfires and Rabbit, Piglet and Pooh find themselves lost, but Pooh's tummy guides them home. Then, Tigger and Roo go out for a bounce and get caught in a tree, which Tigger is too afraid to get out of, and Rabbit makes Tigger promise that if they help get Tigger down, that Tigger can never bounce again. So Tigger is rescued and feels sad that he can no longer bounce, but everyone, including Rabbit, agrees they liked the old bouncy Tigger better. Written by

After Piglet, Pooh, and Rabbit lose Tigger in the mist, the surroundings of the sand pit on page 123 are the fallen tree and little trees. Then when Piglet, Pooh, and Rabbit return to the sand pit, there are more bigger trees and bushes within the pit's surroundings and there's a bigger tree where the fallen tree was. See more »
Well, Tigger, your bouncing really got you into trouble this time.
Say, who're you?
I'm the narrator.
Oh well, please, for goodness sakes, narrate me down from here!
Very well. Hold on tight.
[turns the book sideways as Tigger whimpers in fright]
You can let go now, Tigger.
[stammers in panic, then covers his eyes]
But Tigger, look for yourself. You're perfectly safe.

This is the third short of Winnie the Pooh and his friends. In my opinion, it's the funniest of all and just as good as the earlier 2 shorts. This one isn't simply the funniest, it is also the bounciest. This is full of classic humor and great fun! Yes, our friend Tigger bounces a lot here. He's full of surprises and he bounces to his friends when they less expect. He bounces to Winnie the Pooh, Piglet and Rabbit. He surprises Pooh, scares Piglet, angers Rabbit and amuses little Roo and Kanga. However, he does a special "small bouncing" for Piglet because he is so tiny and he doesn't really bounce to Roo or Kanga, perhaps in respect for Kanga.
And oh, it's so delightful to hear Tigger amusingly saying «Hi hi! She called me dear!» - there's also some vanity in the way he says it. It's equally delightful to hear Tigger calling Pooh «the one who's stuffed with fluff» and «very comfy, too», as well as to hear him call "Long ears" to Rabbit.
Rabbit, of course, likes Tigger as much as the others, but he doesn't accept very well Tigger's bounces. In fact, he decides to have a meeting of protest with Pooh and Piglet because he has a plan to "unbounce" Tigger. The plan consists in taking Tigger to the forest and leave him alone in a far place, so that he gets lost and stops bouncing.
But the plan doesn't work the way they expect. Ironically, Rabbit, Pooh and Piglet are the ones who get lost and Tigger ends up finding them and bounces them, one by one. However, Rabbit is the one who feels humiliated after Tigger assures that «Tiggers never get lost» and keeps wondering «Why oh why oh why?». Tigger is just too smart to get lost.
Later, Tigger decides to take Roo with him to teach him all about bouncing. Tigger gets overexcited, bounces until the top of a tree and that's when something hilarious happens: Tigger is too afraid of heights, so much that he doesn't have courage to even try to get out of that sticky situation. He even promises not to bounce anymore (without really meaning it, of course). It's so hilarious to see our friend Tigger scared of heights.
These Winnie the Pooh's old shorts are real classics. Timeless and very charming. They also give us that "nostalgia" feeling about childhood and classic Disney. In Tigger's words, instead of a goodbye, I'll just say «Halloo!» :)
