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 »

The Tigger Movie is just a delightful heartwarming film, and has a great message about family. Although it is primarily a kids movie, this is one of the few animated films of recent times, when an adult feels comfortable watching it. The animation is very colourful and crisp on the most part, and the songs aren't at all bad, in fact they are fun and on the most part memorable. And I also want to say, at 17 I still love Winnie the Pooh, and maybe I am being biased for really liking this movie, but Tigger is such a lovable and fun character, he truly deserved his own movie. Speaking of Tigger, as much as I love Paul Winchell, who IS the voice of Tigger as far as I'm concerned, Jim Cummings voices him marvellously, and his singing is beautiful. (Cummings is also a very underrated voice artist, he is just incredible, born to voice Darkwing Duck and Rasoul from the Aladdin movies is a great character mainly because of Cummings' vocal input) The story is a very heartwarming one, and there are some truly touching scenes like the ending, which made me cry when I first saw it. Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore and Roo especially are great supporting characters. My only complaints for the Tigger Movie, are that it is too short at just over 75 minutes, and while the story is heartwarming, not very much happens in terms of action. However, despite these minor flaws, it is a hugely enjoyable animated film, that is really pleasant not only for kids but for adults too. A solid 8/10 Bethany Cox
