Winnie the Pooh & Friends

Pooh: Layla

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?". "What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?"
"I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet. Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing," he said.”

Winnie the Pooh has little brains, does a lot of silly things, and his love for honey (hunny) [coffee] is endless. He is best friends with everyone in the 100 Acre Wood. The first thing he says when he gets up in the morning is “what’s for breakfast”[coffee].   Despite being naïve and slow-witted, Pooh is a friendly, thoughtful and sometimes insightful character who is always willing to help his friends and try his best. His good intentions sometimes make things worse and other times solve a problem.

Favorite Things to Do: Play Poohsticks. Adventures with Piglet or Christopher Robin. Exercise in the Morning. Humming. Thinking up poems and songs. Find Hunny to Fill the Rumblee in his Tumblee. Visiting Friends who have Hunny.

Owl: Nerdyy

Owl's character is obviously based on the stereotype of the "wise old owl", although in the books, the quality of Owl's "wisdom" is sometimes questionable.

Owl is considered by most to be the smartest resident of the Hundred Acre Woods. He is known for talking about his many relatives, and tends to tell long, drawn out stories , often involving his various relatives, which bore the others. Though Owl is indeed an intellectual, his intelligence is somewhat questionable, as well is his ability to read [type] as twice he misreads [mistypes] messages.

Owl: Yes, well, the thing to do is as follows: First, issue a reward...
Pooh: Gesundheit.
Owl: I beg your pardon?
Pooh: Well, you sneezed just as you were going to tell me what the first thing to do was.
Owl: I didn't sneeze.
Eeyore: Oh, you did, Owl.
Owl: No, I didn't! You can't sneeze without knowing it!
Pooh: Well, you can't know it without something haven't been sneezed.
Owl: As I was saying, first: issue a reward...
Pooh: [to Eeyore] He's doing it again. You must be catching a cold.
Eeyore: [gloomily] I'll probably catch it too.
Owl: [frustrated] No, no, no! I'm not catching a cold! The word is ISSUE, not AH-CHOO! And 'ah-choo' isn't even a word! It's just some sort of sneezy sound, like 'Ah-choo!'
Pooh: Perhaps you should lie down, Owl.
Owl: Oh!  [hits himself on the forehead and falls over backwards]

Rabbit: Invisible Smoke

Rabbit's own comment to Owl, "You and I have brains. The others have fluff." 

Rabbit can be a frustrated [gruffy] character. This is often due to the unintentional interventions of his friends. Rabbit is most concerned with his garden, which he works on constantly, and he becomes annoyed when it is tampered with. Most of the time, it was him who made decisions to use extremely vicious measures to punish others, mainly Tigger. He is also portrayed to be a control freak [OCD], and needs to have every last detail to fit his personal liking. However, he does have a softer side and will help his friends when he is needed. Rabbit shows a certain reluctance to welcome newcomers, as evidenced by his initial negative reaction to the arrival of Kanga and Roo in the first book, and to Tigger in the second book. Nonetheless, he warms up to all of them in time.

Rabbit: [hearing loud tapping sound] Did you hear that? Did you hear that?
Tigger: Super Sleuths hear it all and understand even less!
[quietly, to Pooh]
Tigger: What is he talkin' about? 
[tapping stops]Tigger: Now this mystery is really history. Hoo hoo hoo.
Rabbit: Oh, sweet silence. Oh, thank you, Super Sleuths.
[sighs and yawns, his alarm clock rings]
Rabbit: Oh no!

In the original featurettes, Rabbit outright dislikes Tigger. However, they have become very close friends, though very dysfunctional ones, who regularly work together. Tigger's antics continue to annoy Rabbit and make trouble for him, while Rabbit's dry attitude still comes off as unkind. Nevertheless, Tigger is usually the first one to help Rabbit when he needs it and noone cannot deny their closeness.

Pooh: Oh, I see. Yes, Piglet, go and bring some honey.
Rabbit: Yes, bring some honey... Doh! The jump rope, Piglet, the jump rope! 
Pooh: With a little honey on the side. 
Piglet: You mean all by myself? Through there? 
Owl: [Flies out of the pit to Piglet] Yes, Piglet. Through a dark wood fraught with peril, on a mission of life or death. It is a task of great complexity, but I have full confidence that you shall return victorious and rescue us from the abyss. Go forth, Piglet, and we shall await your return, for weeks if necessary.
[Flies back down, as everyone looks astonished] 

Rabbit: Owl! 
Owl: What? 
Rabbit: I can't believe... how wonderful that speech was! 
Pooh: I can't, either. 
Eeyore: Moved me to tears.

Tigger: IQ

"Bouncing is what Tiggers do best."

Tigger is cheerful, outgoing, competitive in a friendly way, and has complete confidence in himself. Tigger is very confident and has quite an ego, and often thinks of himself as being handsome, and some of Tigger's other comments suggest Tigger has a high opinion of himself. Tigger is always filled with great energy and optimism, and though always well-meaning, can also be mischievous, and Tigger's actions have sometimes led to chaos and trouble for himself and friends. Also, Tigger often undertakes tasks with gusto, only to later realize they were not as easy as he had originally imagined.

Rabbit: Tigger, why do you keep following me around?
Tigger: [miserably] Well, what else am I supposed to do?
Rabbit: Something! Anything! B-but you can't follow me around all day!
[Tigger follows him into the distance]
Rabbit: Tigger!
Tigger: What?

Tigger becomes great friends with Roo (to whom Tigger becomes a sort of older sibling figure). Tigger also interacts enthusiastically with all the other characters — sometimes too enthusiastically for the likes of Rabbit, who is sometimes exasperated by Tigger's constant bouncing, Eeyore, who is once bounced into the river by Tigger, and Piglet, who always seems a little nervous about the new, large, bouncy animal in the Forest. Nonetheless, the animals are all shown to be friends.

Eeyore: Bulb 

Eeyore has a poor opinion of most of the other animals in the Forest, describing them as having "No brain at all, some of them", "only grey fluff that's blown into their heads by mistake"

Despite his depressive nature, Eeyore is capable of great compassion. Eeyore has some level of literacy. He teaches Piglet the letter A, but spells his own name "eoR" when signing the "rissolution" that the animals give to Christopher Robin as a farewell present in the final chapter. Eeyore also wrote the awkwardly-rhymed poem called "POEM", which appeared on the "rissolution", making him the only character in the Winnie-the-Pooh books other than Pooh himself who attempts to write poetry. Eeyore is also surprisingly good at the game Poohsticks, winning more times than anyone else when it is played in the sixth chapter.  Eeyore has developed a close friendship with Tigger. Despite their opposite personalities, Eeyore's passive nature and Tigger's optimism and outgoingness help them to accept each other's flaws and understand each other better.

Eeyore: Tigger, I'd be happy to tell you my secret for winning at Poohsticks.
Tigger: [eagerly] Uh, you would?
Eeyore: It's very easy. You just have to let your stick drop in a twitchy sort of way.
Tigger: Oh yeah, I forgot to twitch. That was my problem.
[twitches, then bounces]
Tigger: Hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo!
[we hear a crash]
Eeyore: Bounced again.

Roo: Kiara

Roo is a cheerful, playful, curious, energetic and happy-go-lucky child who can be quite a handful at times. 

 Roo's best friend is Tigger, whom Roo looks up to like an older sibling. Roo is the youngest of the main characters. Roo loves to go bouncing with Tigger, playing Poohsticks and playing in the sandy pit by his house. Roo also loves to get himself into trouble but the good thing is that he always learns a lesson from the mistakes he commits. 

Roo is amazingly enthusiastic and cheerful, he loves to discover new things in life and his joy meets no end upon discovering small little wonders along the way. When he is happy he tends to use exclamations and shall repeat things over and over again in excitement, which is a common phenomenon amongst young children. Roo is capable of being able to expressing his thoughts & feelings; he takes a loving and sympathetic view of the world around him. Since he has a sympathetic view of the world it is considered that Roo is much wiser than what his age suggests.

Roo: I've gotta catch a heffalump.
Lumpy: Oh, really?
[pounces Roo]
Lumpy: You can catch me. I'm a heffalump.
Roo: A heffalump.
Lumpy: [hopping up and down, singsong] Heffalump. Heffalump. That's what I am all right. A heffalump.
Roo: Are you sure you're a heffalump?
Lumpy: My mummy says I am.
Roo: Well, if you are a heffalump, then in the name of the Hundred Acre Wood, I capture you!
Lumpy: Okay!

Lumpy: I think I'd better go home now.
Roo: Why?
Lumpy: 'Cause I'm not supposed to go in that part of the woods. Scary things live there.
Roo: Huh? That's where I live. There aren't any scary things there.
Lumpy: Are too. There's a stripy thing that bounces and it goes hoo hoo hoo hoo!
Roo: Whoa! No, no, that's Tigger. You're wrong about him. He's great.
Lumpy: And then there's that loud thing. He's got long ears. And he yells at everybody.
Roo: Yeah, you're kind of right about Rabbit. But he's okay, once you get to know him.

Roo: Lumpster?
Lumpy: Yeah?
Roo: You're not captured anymore.
Lumpy: Yay!

There's a song up today at the Butterfly Effect for you all!

    That's so cute and so sweet of you! ☺

    You make me feel SO cute!

    1. You ARE cute, Kia. And I find all these descriptions (all from various sources which I should have referenced (oopsy)) sooo apt!

    2. and yeah, Kiara, welcome.. I guess you're an Omega orphan now =]

    5. Nono Tigs is the older sibling to Roo :P

  4. First of all belated Birthday wishes! Hope you had a wonderful time. You knew that I wont remember so I assume I am forgiven.

    So you're saying the descriptions were not made up by you? Interesting.
    Even though I despise the fact that I am being called a donkey, the characters seem to be pretty good matches. Good find ::up

    Which means sab ke sab cartoon ke namoone hai....

    Makes me wonder, are we just characters in some aliens' book, playing out what they have written??

    Once again, wish you a great party and congrats on the cleanest layout for the blog till date.

    1. It's not belated here smartypants:D Thank youuuuuuuuuuu! And no I did NOT make this up, and that's why I found it incredibly more worth posting these profiles...They so match us, don't they? :D And it wasn't really a find, I'd been thinking and comparing us to the Poohbear characters for a long time. Layla's post with poohbear pic made me want to make this post to elucidate the "find".

      And yup, we're def out of some book :P It was a bestseller and so, by the power of groupthink, our characters were summoned to life. By this same power, the characters out of current stories are summoned to life by the collective minds of all those giving power to the idea... etc etc.

      And thank you for the compliment - from my worst critic, that's big :D

  5. This ain't ma place... stilll...

    1. Ether, what do you mean not your place? By the laws of freedom of speech et al, you're allowed :P...and thank you, but I am interested/curious...what did you find acha enough to bring you to comment? :D

    2. I know you, nerdyy , ..LayLaa.. and Kiara... but I aint part of the league so... intrusion... this was a targeted post right....


      The content and conversations are interesting I thought ... :) I have not seen too many of winnie the pooh series.. so was wondering whether you took conversations and fit nicely to context or made up these... either way the content is nice :)

    3. Haha...:D You know what Ether? As if it wanted to make your point clear, blogger marked your comment as spam :P (Hence the late reply and publishing of the comment).

      Yeah it's targeted, but by no means exclusive :D I wouldn't have gotten to meet/include Kiara in this if she hadn't started commenting and therefore vice versa :)

      I've been a Winnie the Pooh aficionado since I was very the books, and then the Disney adaptations..and even in psychology in yeah, they really do fit nicely with context :D (I didn't make these up) - Thanks again Ether :D

  6. Rabbit's own comment to Owl, "You and I have brains. The others have fluff." Very true ::closed eyes

    Rabbit: Tigger, why do you keep following me around?
    Tigger: [miserably] Well, what else am I supposed to do?
