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 »

Now this might be the room of any small boy. But it just so happens to belong to a boy named Christopher Robin. Like most small boys, Christopher Robin had toy animals to play with; and together, they had many remarkable adventures in an enchanted place called the Hundred Acre Wood.

The Tigger Movie is a first in the Winnie the Pooh franchise for being named after one character. Later we would get Piglet's Big Movie, but for now, Tigger takes the stage. What we get is an on-par children's film, but not enough fun, excitement, or laughs to be compared to the two previous Pooh films.
Tigger has been curious about his family recently, and is now looking for his family tree (a real tree, he mistakes). He prances around with his buddy Roo in search of his family before he decides to write them a letter. Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Rabbit, Owl, and Kanga worry about Tigger being letdown by his family's no-show when they see he has thrown a party for them. So they all dress up like Tiggers to make Tigger feel loved.
The bouncy, stripped character sure has enough energy to carry a mere seventy-five minute film, but when compared to the gentleness of the previous two films, Tigger's antics grow tiresome after a little while and then the rest of the cast joins him giving a likable performance.
The animation, events, and the cheery nature brought from the three short stories in The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, lacks here greatly because Tigger is such a rambunctious and silly character that a lot of the joy and easy-flow that occupied the stories is kind of neglected here. But I'm in no way trying to put down the beast, he is quite an uppity character, that has some high points in this film.
Children will enjoy this because their is always something on screen that is either fast-paced or musical. Parents might enjoy bits and pieces, while at other points may be annoyed by Tigger's antics. The Tigger Movie packs a wallop, and the wonderful thing is that it's a semi-wonderful thing.
Voiced by: Jim Cummings, Nikita Hopkins, John Fiedler, Ken Sansom, Peter Cullen, Andre Stojka, Kath Soucie, and Tom Attenborough. Directed by: Jun Falkenstein.
