Notes: Dates are approximate. Exact dates of release have been difficult to determine. Most of these titles are the "New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" TV series released to video. Most of the titles released after 1991 are simply titles of videos which contain two or three related stories released earlier. The Book of Pooh series is based upon the non-animated costumed TV shows. (We think there may be additional releases not listed here). You can rent or purchase most of these videos at your local library, neighborhood video store, favorite internet video site, or from Disney Home Video. Kudos to Stuart Shankland for help with this list.

Question #49: How Come There's No Information on Kessie or Bruno?
Who is Cassey?

Pooh Answer #49:
Kessie (Cassie/Cassy/Kassie/Kassy), of course, is the young blue female bird which flew into Rabbit's life in an episode of The New Adventures of Winnie-the-Pooh called "Find Her, Keep Her". (It's on the "Newfound Friends" video). Rabbit saved Kessie during the Winter and got very attached to the bird. In time, Kessie learns to fly and eventually flies South. Kessie did return to visit Rabbit the following Spring.

She is included on our Winnie-the-Pooh Character Guide - Modern Images page, and Icon Images page. We did not include the lovable Kessie on our Classic Images page because she does not appear in either of the original books or the first movie. Our guide is based mainly upon the original work of A.A. Milne.

That's also the reason we do not include any information on the gorilla named Bruno, "the best present any kid could get".

Question #50: Where can I find Gopher, Heffalumps and Woozles merchandise?
Where can I find stuffed animals of Gopher, Heffalumps and Woozles?

Gopher Answer #50:
According to the owners at "The Hunny Pot" online store, "On the lesser characters, like Gopher - its very difficult to find plush on them. We have not seen any of recent years with the exception of the Disney Store who has their own licensed characters made. We believe Gund made some Gophers and Heffalumps/Woozles in the early 60's. Very rare finds nowadays, but if you get people who are real collectors - we would suggest that they visit Ebay often. We have seen several over the past few years go up for auction there."

Question #51: Isn't Piglet Really a Baby Armadillo? Or a Baby Hedgehog?
I have a very important question about piglet. I need some kind of factual info giving piglet's background if that exists. I can remember a trivia game that I was once playing that I lost because I said that piglet was a baby pig. The game said that piglet was a baby armadillo. I called a friend of mine whom I thought was also playing whatever trivia game it was, and he remembered the answer also. Any assistance would be most appreciated. Chad G.

I have been told that Piglet was a baby hedgehog (which is also called a piglet). Was Piglet originally a baby hedgehog? Noel K.

Piglet Answer #51:
Lets look at the evidence...

1. Remember that the Winnie-the-Pooh books were written in the early 1920's in England. The characters were based upon either stuffed animals that were given to Christopher Robin Milne (Pooh, Eeyore, Piglet, Kanga, Roo, Tigger), or animals seen in the nearby woods (Owl and Rabbit).

2. The character's names were based upon the animal itself or variations on the animal. Most are self-apparent. "Eeyore" is the sound a donkey makes, and "Winnie" was the name of a bear seen in the London Zoo.

3. Christopher Robin Milne did not own a stuffed armadillo or hedgehog.

4. Armadillos are not indigenous to England. (You won't find them wondering around in the woods). I believe their range is from Argentina as far north as Texas and Louisiana. True, hedgehogs --- while indigenous to Africa and Eurasia --- can also be found in England and were indeed seen in the Woods.

5. Armadillos have hard shells (you might call it armor) which cover their body. Hedgehogs have spines which cover their back and sides. Piglet has neither.

Sorry, the trivia game was wrong. Chad was right all along...

Piglet is a young Pig.

Question #52: Which of Christopher Robin's Friends Never Gets Lost?
Which of Christopher Robin's friends never gets lost?
Jessica E.

Tigger Answer #52:
There is no definitive answer to this question since five of his friends have never been lost: Tigger, Owl, Kanga, Roo and Eeyore.

The best at not being able to get lost is probably Tigger. This is one of his few boasts that actually turns out to be true. "It's a funny thing about Tiggers... how Tiggers never get lost... They just don't... That's how it is."

When Rabbit, Pooh and Piglet try to get lose him in the forest, Tigger had no problem finding his way out, although Rabbit got lost big time. Pooh and Piglet were lost until Pooh followed his hungry tummy home to hunny.

Owl hasn't gotten lost, but he often loses himself in his own stories, and loses his visitors when he gets long-winded.

Eeyore doesn't get lost, but he does lose his tail. Kanga never gets lost, but then she usually stays pretty close to home. Roo almost got lost when he fell in the stream, but he was rescued.

Question #53: Are There Any Clubs Associated With The Winnie-the-Pooh Characters?
Where can I find clubs that I can join that have to do with Pooh, Eeyore, Piglet, and Tigger?

PoohPiglet Answer #53: TiggerEeyore

A great place to start is at Yahoo! Clubs. You'll find a number of clubs related to Winnie-the-Pooh, Eeyore, Piglet, Tigger, and the 100 Aker Woods in general. The "Yahoo! Clubs" service was started in late summer 1998. The clubs are easy to join. You can also start your own club if you can't find one in the Yahoo! Club's search engine that you like.

Question #54: What are the Words to the "rain rain rain came down down down" Song?
I have been wondering for a long time where I can find the words to a song from "Winnie The Pooh and the Blustery Day". After seeing that you were able to help with other similar queries, I thought I'd write in with this one.

What is the song sung in "Winnie The Pooh and the Blustery Day" where it kind of goes like this..."and the rain rain rain came down down down...". If you can help me in anyway, then I would NEVER stop singing it! :) Thank you for at least taking the time to read this letter, and I hope that you keep up the excellent work on your web site for everyone else to enjoy as much as I have.

Pooh Answer #54: Piglet
The Rain Rain Rain Came Down Down Down
From: "Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day"
Written by: Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman

The rain rain rain came down down down,
in rushing rising rivlets.
Till the river crept out of its bed,
and crept right into Piglet's.
For Piglet he was frightened, with quite a rightful fright.

And so in desperation, a message he did write:

([PIGLET] Help! P-P-Piglet Me!)

He placed it in a bottle, and it floated out of sight.

And the rain rain rain came down down down,
so Piglet started bailing.

He was unaware atop his chair,
while bailing he was sailing.

And the rain rain rain came down down down,
and the flood rose up-up-upper.

Pooh too was caught and so he thought:

I must rescue my supper.

Ten honey pots he rescued, enough to see him through.
But as he sopped up his supper,
The river sopped up Pooh.

And the water twirled and tossed him,
In a honey pot canoe.

...rain rain rain came down down down
when the rain rain rain came down down down... (fade)

It's a fun song to add a few of your own verses to the end.

Question #55a: How Did Eeyore Lose His Tail?
How exactly did eyeore loose his tail? More over was this based on the actual stuffed friend Christopher Robin owned, or was this fabricated simply for the books?
Thank You,

Michael S.

Question #55b: Where Was Eeyore's Tail Found?
Where did they find Eeyore's tail?
A. Hofer Villiers

Eeyore Answer #55a:
Eeyore was of the opinion someone had taken his tail. In reality, it had gotten stuck on a bush. There is no evidence that Christopher Robin Milne's stuffed Eeyore ever lost its tail, but we also can't rule it out as an inspiration for this story. [Editor's Note: This is one of the most humorous Chapters in the book]. You can help Solve The Mystery of Eeyore's Missing Tail

Eeyore Answer #55b:
Winnie-the-Pooh found Eeyore's tail outside of Owl's front door. The tail was being used by Owl as a door bell pull string. Technically, Owl found it first, but did not know it was a tail. Therefore Pooh is credited with having found the tail.

Excerpts from the book "Winnie-the-Pooh" Chapter IV by A. A. Milne
"Handsome bell-rope, isn't it?" said Owl.
Pooh nodded. "It reminds me of something," he said, "but I can't think what. Where did you get it?"
"I just came across it in the Forest. It was hanging over a bush, and I thought at first somebody lived there, so I rang it, and nothing happened, and then I rang it again very loudly, and it came off in my hand, and as nobody seemed to want it, I took it home, and"
"Owl," said Pooh solemnly, "you made a mistake. Somebody did want it."
"Eeyore. My dear friend Eeyore. He was--he was fond of it."
"Fond of it?"
"Attached to it," said Winnie-the-Pooh sadly.
