Eeyore is gloomy, like always, but more so now. His birthday is right around the corner and everybody has forgotten. It didn't cheer him up any when Tigger "accidentally" knocks Eeyore into the river. Pooh invents a new game, "Pooh Sticks", and everyone contributes to Eeyore's party, there's flat balloons, storage honey pots with Owl's hand writing on them, and a game of Pooh Sticks which Tigger claims he likes, but immediately hates it because he lost. It turns out to be a happy birthday celebration after all. Written by Dylan Self <robocoptng986127@aol.com>

Piglet: [after his balloon he plans to give to Eeyore pops] Oh, dear. Oh dearie-d-d-dear, dear. What shall I - who shall I...?
Piglet: Well, maybe Eeyore doesn't like balloons so very much.

Truly Classic
23 January 2016 | by zsofikamSee all my reviews

I have previously mentioned how much I love Winnie the Pooh. That rule holds up just as much with this movie. A Day For Eeyore was originally supposed to be included in The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh but was released on its own for some reason, but it's just as much of a classic and a childhood stable as The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. The story centers around Eeyore being in an exceptionally bad mood because everyone has forgotten his birthday. Pooh and the gang then decide to throw him a surprise party. I love everything about the film, but what I especially enjoy is the fact that Eeyore gets a chance to be in the limelight as he has some nice dry wit. The part that really sticks out, however, is the party itself. Although I immensely enjoy parties in general, I especially love surprise parties because it's a party when you don't expect it. The ever gloomy Eeyore most certainly didn't expect to have so much fun in store for him. Fun lovable movie that shows that even someone like Eeyore can be cheered up.
