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 Tigger comes down from the tree, he scoops up snow, kissing it, and leaving a small pile and traces. After Rabbit says "you promised" and he lands on the ground, the snow mess he made is gone. See more »
Disney again does an excellent job of adapting Pooh
Disney has been criticized (often justifiably) for the sometimes very loose adaptations of other works to animation. But they generally have done quite well by the Winnie-the-Pooh adaptations. This short, nominated for an Academy Award in the excellent year of 1974, is a first-class adaptation of the denizens of the 100-Acre Wood. Personally, Tigger is my second favorite character (after Eeyore) so I particularly like this one. Disney used animation to actually create the feel of the A.A. Milne books and did very well by the stories. Highly Recommended.
