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 »
[Reciting the letter]
Dear Tigger, just a note to say:...
Winnie The Pooh:
...stay safe and sound...
We're always there for you.

If you liked Tigger and crew as a child, then go back and see them again.
The kids will enjoy it, and the adults will, too. One can't help but become involved with the characters, and eyes will become misty no matter how hard you fight it.
The songs are original and funny, and even have subtle references that older viewers will catch (they are NOT inappropriate in any way) and younger ones will miss, which allows many age levels to enjoy it.
You have to be quick, though, because Tigger sings faster than he bounces.
