Spoiled by their upbringing with no idea what wild life is really like, four animals from New York Central Zoo escape, unwittingly assisted by four absconding penguins, and find themselves in Madagascar, among a bunch of merry lemurs
Paul Winchell, the original voice of Tigger, was replaced by Jim Cummings, who had voiced Tigger in a number of later stories of The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (1988). (Although Winchell did provide Tigger's voice for a number of stories from that series.) The reason given was the 76-year-old's voice was just too scratchy now to properly portray the character. Walt Disney Imagineers heard about this and insisted on hiring Winchell to provide Tigger's voice for the new "Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" attraction at Walt Disney World. He was and it's Winchell's voice that is used in the ride. See more »
Between 10 to 15 minutes into the movie, Tigger and Roo visit Owl. At a certain moment, Tigger empties the sugar pot in his cup of tea to make it tastier. A little bit later, when Tigger shakes hands with Owl to thank him, all the sugar has gone back from the cup to the sugar pot. See more »
What is this doo-hickey?
Why, that's no doo-hickey. It's a thing-a-ma-bob.

I've Been Waiting For Tigger to Have His Own Film, and "A Tigger Movie" Accomplished Its Goal...
In this film, Tigger (voiced by Jim Cummings -- one of the least known yet well deserved voice actors) basically thinks he has a family, and is elated when he hears they're coming to the Hundred Acre Woods.
One knows everything that is going to happen in this film, but who didn't know Pooh would get out of Rabbit's hole in the classic "Pooh" film? I for one found that though predictable, "The Tigger Movie" is a film with a message, and it can be enjoyed by all ages. It isn't "rated PG for brief language." It doesn't have small print. It's harmless family fun, and I praise the film on that account. Tigger swearing or aiming a gun at Roo's head just wouldn't do for me (though it would be funny to see on "The Late Show," or something that can twiddle with the animation :)
I give "The Tigger Movie" 3/5 stars -- it has the Disney magic in it.
