List of Winnie-the-Pooh characters

This is a list of characters appearing in the "Winnie-the-Pooh" books and other adaptations, including Disney's adaptations of the series.

These stuffed animals are the ones that belonged to Christopher Robin Milne (with the exception of Roo, who was lost in the early 1930s), upon which the stories were based. They are on display in the Donnell Library Center in New York City.
Characters from the original book from Chapter X.

Characters from the original books edit

Winnie-the-Pooh edit

Winnie-the-Pooh, or Pooh for short, is an anthropomorphic, soft-voiced teddy bear. Despite being naïve and slow-witted, he is a friendly, thoughtful and sometimes insightful character who is always willing to help his friends and try his best. A prime motivation is his love for honey, which quite often leads to trouble.

In the books, Pooh is a talented poet, and the stories are frequently punctuated by his poems and "hums".

He is humble about his slow-wittedness, but comfortable with his creative gifts.


Cottleston, Cottleston, Cottleston Pie, A fish can’t whistle and neither can I. Ask me a riddle and I reply: “Cottleston, Cottleston, Cottleston Pie.”

A. A. Milne, Chapter VI, In Which Eeyore Has a Birthday and Gets Two Presents

In the Disney adaptations, in which the character's name lacks hyphens, Pooh has a soft voice, wears a red shirt and his catchphrases are "Oh, bother!" and "Think, think, think".[1] He has been voiced by Sterling Holloway (1965–1977), Hal Smith (1981–1986), and Jim Cummings (1988–present).[2] Cummings reprised his role for the Christopher Robin film.[3]

Craig David Dowsett plays an antagonistic murderous version of Pooh in the horror film Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey (2023) while Ryan Oliva plays the character in the sequel Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey 2 (2024), replacing Dowsett.

Christopher Robin edit

The primary human character in the books, he has a "cheerful" and compassionate personality and is someone whom Pooh and the others look up to. Despite being a child, he is much wiser and more mature than many of the other characters. Pooh considers both Christopher Robin and Piglet to be his best friends.

Christopher Robin matures considerably over the course of the books. Some chapters in The House at Pooh Corner cover Christopher Robin beginning to go to school and his increasing book-learning. In the final chapter, Christopher Robin leaves his stuffed animals behind and asks Pooh to understand and to always remember him.

In the Disney adaptations, he is 10 years old and only goes to day school. As in the books, he is best friends with both Piglet and Pooh, and he and Pooh always do nothing together. Christopher Robin has had many voice actors over the years including Bruce Reitherman (1965–1966), Robie Lester (A Happy Birthday Party with Winnie the Pooh),[4] Jon Walmsley (1967–1968),[4] Ginny Tyler (Disneyland Records),[5] Timothy Turner (1974), Kim Christianson (1983), Tim Hoskins (1988–1991), Edan Gross (1991), Brady Bluhm (1997–1999), Tom Attenborough (2000), Tom Wheatley (2003), William Green (2002), Paul Tiesler (2001–2003), Struan Erlenborn (2007–2010), Jack Boulter (2011), and Oliver Bell (2017). Christopher Robin starred in his own film, portrayed by Ewan McGregor as an adult and Orton O'Brien a child (2018).[3]

Nikolai Leon plays an adult Christopher Robin and Frederick Dallaway plays a child Christopher Robin in the horror film Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey (2023). Scott Chambers plays Christopher Robin in the sequel Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey 2 (2024), replacing Leon.

Tigger edit

Tigger is Pooh's happy, less-than-responsible and a sometimes troublemaking tiger friend. He bounces around, and will often bounce on others. He is full of energy, outgoing, and likes to have fun. Tigger moves in with Kanga and Roo in the books, but lives on his own in Disney adaptations.

In the Disney films Tigger has a tendency to commonly mispronounces words, like "ridickerus" (ridiculous) and usually he causes chaos rather than good. However, Tigger is also shown to be tough, fearless, optimistic and resourceful; he is shown to be protective of Roo when Kanga's not around. Tigger prides himself on being the only one and bouncing as exhibited in the song "The Wonderful Thing about Tiggers". He has been voiced by Paul Winchell (1968–1999), Sam Edwards (Disneyland Records),[5] Will Ryan (1983–1986), and Jim Cummings (1989–present). Cummings reprised his role for the Christopher Robin film.[3]

Lewis Santer plays an antagonistic murderous version of Tigger in the horror film Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey 2 (2024).

Piglet edit

Piglet is a pig and Pooh's best friend besides Christopher Robin. In the books, he often takes his lead from Pooh unless overcome by fear which occurs more often than not. But increasingly through the stories he shows himself to be very brave when faced with a crisis and given sufficient encouragement (usually by Pooh). He is fond of "haycorns". Piglet moves in with Pooh after giving his house to Owl.

In the Disney series he is kind, gentle and ordinarily quite shy, but with Pooh by his side, he often overcomes his fears. He has been voiced by John Fiedler (1968–2005),[6] Robie Lester (Disneyland Records),[4] Phil Baron (1983–1986), Travis Oates (2005–present),[6] and in the Christopher Robin film, he was voiced by Nick Mohammed.[3]

Chris Cordell plays an antagonistic murderous version of Piglet in the horror film Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey (2023) while Eddy McKenzie plays as Piglet in the sequel Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey 2 (2024), replacing Cordell.

Eeyore edit

Eeyore is Pooh's ever-glum, pessimistic and sarcastic donkey friend who is a supporting character. Eeyore has trouble keeping his tail attached to his bottom since the nail keeps falling out. Eeyore has a house made of sticks in the gloomy part of the forest. Eeyore enjoys eating thistles.

In the Disney cartoons, Eeyore is slow-talking and more cautious than some of the other animals, and is often reluctant to go along with their actions, but usually does not bother trying to oppose anyone. Generally, Eeyore is more positive and happy in the Disney versions compared to the books. His catchphrase is "Thanks for noticing" as indicated to himself. Eeyore's house often falls apart or gets knocked down in the Disney works. He has been voiced by Ralph Wright (1966–1983), Thurl Ravenscroft (Disneyland Records),[4] Ron Feinberg (1981), Ron Gans (1983–1986), Peter Cullen (1988–present), Bud Luckey (2011 film), and in the Christopher Robin film, he was voiced by Brad Garrett.

In the horror film Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey (2023), Eeyore was killed and eaten by Pooh, Piglet, Rabbit, and Owl to survive a very harsh winter with no food, and that the trauma of doing this was a key event that led to them becoming serial killers.

Rabbit edit

Rabbit is one of the characters not based on a toy once owned by Christopher Robin Milne. He was said to be based on a real rabbit where they lived. He is friendly, and a character yet capable of being impatient and irritable. He considers himself the smartest animal in the Forest. He insists on doing things his way and is obsessed with rules, planning and order. He often bosses others around, but deep down, he cares a lot about his friends.[7] Rabbit is able to read, unlike the other animals.

In the Disney films, he takes pride in his garden and dislikes it when the other characters disrupt it.

Voiced in the Disney films by Junius Matthews (1965–1977), Robie Lester (A Happy Birthday Party with Winnie the Pooh),[4] Dallas McKennon (Disneyland Records),[5] Ray Erlenborn (1983), Will Ryan (1983–1986), Ken Sansom (1988–2010), Tom Kenny (2011–present), and in the Christopher Robin film, he was voiced by Peter Capaldi.[3]

In the horror film Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey (2023), Rabbit appears through drawings in the opening scene. The character is referenced by Owl, along with Kanga and Roo, at the ending of the sequel, Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey 2 (2024).

Kanga edit

Kanga is a female kangaroo and the mother of Roo. The two live in a house near the Sandy Pit in the northwestern part of the forest. Kanga is the only female character to appear in the books and in most Winnie-the-Pooh media. She was based on a stuffed toy that belonged to Christopher Robin Milne.

Kanga is kindhearted, calm, patient and docile. She likes to keep things clean and organized, and offers motherly advice and food to anyone who asks her. She is protective over Roo, almost obsessively, and treats him with kind words and gentle discipline. She also has a sense of humor, as revealed in chapter seven of Winnie-the-Pooh when Rabbit connives to kidnap Roo, leaving Piglet in his place; Kanga pretends not to notice that Piglet is not Roo and proceeds to give him Roo's usual bath, much to Piglet's dismay.[8] These events were adapted into animated form in a scene from Piglet's Big Movie (2003).

In the Disney adaptations, Kanga's personality is unchanged (though she is much more sensible and down to earth, and gives Roo some level of independence), but she plays a slightly lesser role and does not appear nearly as often as Roo does. Additionally, Tigger lives in his own house instead of with Kanga (although he is seen frequently visiting her house). She has been voiced by Barbara Luddy (1966–1977), Robie Lester (Disneyland Records),[4] Julie McWhirter (1983), Patricia Parris (1988–1992),[9] Tress MacNeille (1994–2000, 2005–2006, 2015),[9] Kath Soucie (2000–present), Kristen Anderson-Lopez (2011 film), and in the film Christopher Robin (2018), she was voiced by Sophie Okonedo.

Kanga is referenced by Owl, along with Rabbit and Roo, at the ending of the horror film sequel, Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey 2 (2024).

Roo edit

Roo is Kanga's cheerful, playful, energetic son, who moved to the Forest with her. In the books, Roo is depicted a tiny animal full of energy and is the youngest character of the main group.

When Kanga and Roo first come to the forest in chapter seven of Winnie-the-Pooh, everyone thinks Kanga is a fierce animal, but discover this to be untrue and become friends with her. In the books, when Tigger comes to the forest, she welcomes him into her home, attempts to find him food he likes and allows him to live with her and Roo. After this, Kanga treats him much the way she does her own son.

In the Disney works, Roo is depicted as a young child who often wants to be independent. He has a close bond with Tigger, and he later becomes close with Lumpy, a young Heffalump.

Voiced in the Disney films by Clint Howard (1966–1977), Robie Lester (Disneyland Records),[5] Dori Whitaker (1974), Dick Billingsley (1983), Kim Christianson (1983–1986), Nicholas Melody (1988–1990), Nikita Hopkins (1998–2005), Jimmy Bennett (2004–2005), Max Burkholder (2007–2010), Wyatt Hall (2011), Aidan McGraw (2019) and in the Christopher Robin film, he was voiced by Sara Sheen.

Roo is referenced by Owl, along with Kanga and Rabbit, at the ending of the horror film sequel, Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey 2 (2024).

Owl edit

Owl is the stuffy and talkative eldest main character who presents himself as a mentor and teacher to the others. He was not based on a stuffed toy, so in the illustrations he looks more like a live animal.

In the books, Owl has a superior but kindly manner towards the others. He can be cross and easily annoyed, especially when his friends ignore or interrupt his long-winded speeches. He sometimes wears reading glasses, and uses his talons for hands, as opposed to his wings in the Disney version. He lives in a tree known as The Chestnuts, described as an "old world residence of great charm". The house is blown down by a storm in the eighth chapter of The House at Pooh Corner. Eeyore eventually discovers a new house for Owl, but it turns out to actually be Piglet's house. Nonetheless, Piglet offers the house to Owl, who calls his new home "The Wolery". Owl likes to present himself as very knowledgeable, and is perceived by the other animals as such, but like most of the other characters, he does not spell very well; he even spells his own name "Wol". When Rabbit (who is quite literate) comes to Owl to discuss a notice that Christopher Robin has left, Owl cannot read the notice. But rather than admit this, Owl anxiously bluffs his way through the conversation until he finally tricks Rabbit into reading the notice out loud, at which point Owl resumes his wise demeanor as if he had known all along what it had said.

In the Disney adaptations, Owl is much more jovial and friendly. He enjoys telling stories about his relatives whenever something reminds him of one, but many of his stories are pointless or absurd. In Welcome to Pooh Corner, Owl always wears glasses (and often a cap and goggles when flying) and loves to cook. He is absent in My Friends Tigger & Pooh completely. He has been voiced by Hal Smith (1966–1994), Junius Matthews (A Happy Birthday Party with Winnie the Pooh),[4] Sam Edwards (Disneyland Records),[5] Andre Stojka (1997–present), Craig Ferguson (2011 film), and in the Christopher Robin film, he was voiced by Toby Jones.

In the horror film Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey (2023), Owl appears through drawings in the opening scene. Marcus Massey plays an antagonistic murderous version of Owl in the horror film Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey 2 (2024).

Minor characters in the books edit

Bees edit

A swarm of honeybees makes their debut in the very first chapter. They live in the hive where Pooh tries to get his honey.

They frequently appear in virtually every version of the Disney adaptations, including the debut short, Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree. Whenever Pooh and his friends encounter the bees, trouble usually occurs with the bees going after them.

Rabbit's friends and relations edit

Eeyore with Rabbit's friends and relations from Chapter VIII of Winnie-the-Pooh

Many small mammals and insects in the books are collectively known as Rabbit's Friends and Relations. They do not generally do much or have much character development, and only a few of them are named.

    Christopher Robin with Alexander Beetle from Now We Are Six
    Alexander Beetle is briefly mentioned on page 119 of Winnie-the-Pooh, and he appears to have become upset and hidden himself in a crack for two days, then went to live with his aunt. He is also the subject of a poem in Now We Are Six.[10]
  • Small (short for Very Small Beetle) is the subject of a search that Rabbit organizes to find him. Making his animated debut in My Friends Tigger & Pooh, he is the first new Milne character to appear in the Disney adaptations since the debut of Tigger in Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day.
  • Henry Rush is a beetle. He had a brief mention in The House at Pooh Corner, and has been expanded in Return to the Hundred Acre Wood. He attended the Spelling Bee, kept score at the cricket game, and danced at the Harvest Festival.
  • Late and Early are two friends mentioned briefly at the end of The House at Pooh Corner and expanded in Return to the Hundred Acre Wood. They attended Christopher Robin's coming home party and received sugar mice. They also attended the Spelling Bee. Although it is never mentioned what species they are, illustrations point to them being mice.
  • Smallest-of-All, or S. of A. for short, is mentioned near the end of The House at Pooh Corner and near the beginning of Return to the Hundred Acre Wood. He has a tendency to be unsure of what he sees. His species is never revealed.
  • Rabbit's family appears alongside Rabbit in the books. Many relatives appear in The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh episode "Party Poohper" and he occasionally mentions them at other times in the Disney adaptations. Rabbit's friends and relations were also planned to be side characters in Winnie the Pooh, but they were scrapped from the final film.

Heffalumps edit

Piglet dreams of a Heffalump in Chapter III of Winnie-the-Pooh

Heffalumps are elephant-like creatures first mentioned in the fifth chapter of the first book and in the third chapter of the second. In the books, Piglet twice has a run-in with a Heffalump that is only a figment of his imagination. The Disney version establishes them as real creatures. Like Pooh imagined in the books, Heffalumps are fond of honey and like to take it for themselves. There have been several real Heffalump characters in the Disney version. Some Heffalumps are villainous creatures and some are genuinely good. Lumpy the heffalump is Roo's good friend, appearing in Pooh's Heffalump Movie and My Friends Tigger & Pooh. Most Heffalumps appeared in the video game series.

Woozles edit

A Woozle is a weasel-like[citation needed] creature imagined by the characters in the third and ninth chapters of Winnie-the-Pooh. No Woozles actually appear in A. A. Milne's original stories, but the book depicts them as living in cold, snowy places. They are first mentioned when Pooh and Piglet attempt to capture one, which they assume made the tracks in the snow going around a larch spinney. The more the two friends follow the spoor, the more sets of tracks they find, but Christopher Robin shows them that the tracks around the spinney are their own.

Woozles appear in the song "Heffalumps and Woozles" in Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day, which establishes their fondness for stealing honey and their association with Heffalumps. In The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Woozles are real creatures. A Woozle named Stan and his sidekick Heff the Heffalump are recurring villains. They once recruited a giant Woozle named Wooster (also voiced by Jim Cummings) who turned against them when Pooh and his friends taught him the value of friendship. Woozles do not appear in the Disney adaptations nearly as often as Heffalumps do and, unlike Heffalumps, always attempt to act as villains, with Wooster being the only one to change his mind on this. Like Heffalumps, most Woozles appeared in the video game series.

Woozle Hill on Galindez Island was named for the creatures.[11]

Jagulars edit

Jagulars are imagined jaguar-like fierce creatures that are only mentioned in the fourth chapter of The House at Pooh Corner, in which Pooh and Piglet mistake Tigger for one. According to Pooh, they always yell "Help" (or "Halloo" in Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too!), hang in trees, and drop on you when you look up. Jagulars have yet to actually appear in any Disney adaptations. Their most prominent role to date is in The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh where they are mentioned more often and are the main antagonists in some episodes. They also have some minor appearances in the video game series.

Backson edit

Backson is a creature imagined by the main antagonist after misunderstanding Christopher Robin's note, which meant he would be "back soon" from school. He is mentioned but not seen in The House at Pooh Corner as "the Spotted or Herbaceous Backson".

He has a significant role in the 2011 animated film Winnie the Pooh, where the animals think he has captured Christopher Robin. Owl describes him as a large, ugly, creepy, mean and scary purple and blue creature who ruins or destroys many everyday items, such as books, socks and crayons. Pooh and his friends build a trap to try to capture him (a pit with a trail of books, socks, dishes, toys and other items leading to it), but Christopher Robin reveals that he was never captured, just away at school. In a post-credits scene of the film, the Backson turns out to be real, but he is a kind and helpful creature who wants to return people's things to them. However, the trap does capture him, as he picks up all the items, intending to return them to their owners, and then falls into the pit, where he remarks "I sure do hope that fella will be back soon". Backson is voiced by Huell Howser.

Uncle Robert edit

Uncle Robert was Owl's uncle, whose portrait hangs on Owl's wall. He is mentioned in the eighth chapter of The House at Pooh Corner, but never actually appears. His portrait appears in Winnie the Pooh and a Day for Eeyore when Owl says Uncle Robert celebrated his 103rd birthday, despite claiming to be 97. Return to the Hundred Acre Wood reveals that Uncle Robert is dead, but Owl keeps his ashes in a vase and attempts to write his biography.

Characters in authorized sequels edit

Characters in Return to the Hundred Acre Wood edit

  • Lottie is an otter and the only new major character in Return to the Hundred Acre Wood. Lottie is a "feisty" character who is also good at cricket and insists on proper etiquette.[12] She wears a pearl necklace and can play the mouth organ, but is a little snide and snobby in her remarks. She makes her home in a wooden trunk filled with water that she calls Fortitude Hall. According to Benedictus, "Lottie the Otter truly embodies Winnie-the-Pooh's values of friendship and adventure seen throughout Milne's work, thus making her a perfect companion for everyone's favourite bear."
  • Grandad Buck is Rabbit's grandfather. He wears glasses and is described as "Very Ancient and the Head of the Rabbit Family". He does not entirely approve of Rabbit, but gives him advice anyway. He knew Owl's late Uncle Robert, who sent him letters.
  • A Thesaurus is what Piglet imagines to be a large reptilian creature in a similar way to how the characters imagined Heffalumps and other creatures in the original books. Even after Piglet learns what the word "thesaurus" means, he still imagines it to be an animal.

Characters in Winnie-the-Pooh: The Best Bear in All the World edit

Characters in the Disney franchise edit

Major characters edit

Mr. Narrator edit

The storyteller who speaks off-screen. Sometimes the characters, who are aware that they are in a book, speak with him while facing him. They sometimes affectionately call him "Mr. Narrator". He sometimes uses his position to help the characters, since he can manipulate the book and pages. Some stories, such as Pooh's Grand Adventure: The Search for Christopher Robin have him narrating, but omit the "book" feature, so the characters are unaware of him. Welcome to Pooh Corner is the only time when viewers actually see his face. He does not appear at all in The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Piglet's Big Movie and Pooh's Heffalump Movie (in Pooh's Heffalump Movie, Pooh is the narrator). He is the only Disney-only character who returns for Winnie the Pooh. Typically, he speaks with a Southern-English accent.

Voiced by Sebastian Cabot, Laurie Main, David Warner, John Rhys-Davies, John Hurt, Roger L. Jackson, David Ogden Stiers, Michael York and John Cleese

Gopher edit

Gopher is a fictional gray anthropomorphic bucktoothed gopher character with a habit of whistling out his sibilant consonants that does not appear in any of the books. He often accidentally falls into one of the many holes he makes in the forest ground by forgetting to watch where he is going. Gopher first appears in Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree where he says the joke "I'm not in the book", and in Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day with a smaller role, warning Pooh about the "Windsday". Gopher later appears as a prominent character in the TV series The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, and in the specials A Winnie the Pooh Thanksgiving, Winnie the Pooh: A Valentine for You and Boo to You Too! Winnie the Pooh. The latter was included as part of Pooh's Heffalump Halloween Movie, being his last appearance in animation to date. Gopher was notably absent from the 2011 film[13] and the live-action film. After 13 years of absence, Gopher appears in Kingdom Hearts III in the 100 Acre Wood world (also previously having appeared in Kingdom Hearts II).[14]

Voiced by Howard Morris (1965–1977), Dallas McKennon (Disneyland Records),[5] and Michael Gough (1988–present)

Kessie edit

Kessie is an orphaned bluebird with a white belly. She debuted in The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh episode "Find Her, Keep Her". Kessie is cheerful, brave and eager to prove herself. As a nestling, Rabbit adopted her after he saved her from a snowstorm and she came to live with him and nicknamed him "Rabbie". Rabbit was very protective of her and initially did not want her to fly. After she finally learned to fly, she migrated south for the winter, despite a reluctant Rabbit, but returned in "A Bird in the Hand", where she has since matured into a young adult bird. In later appearances, she has reverted to being a juvenile bird. After appearing in Seasons of Giving, Kessie was relaunched as a main character in The Book of Pooh, her first regular role, though after the series, Kessie is never seen or mentioned again.

Voiced by Laura Mooney, Amber Hood, and Stephanie D'Abruzzo.

Lumpy edit

Heffridge Trumpler Brompet "Lumpy" Heffalump IV is a young lavender Heffalump with a tuft of purple hair on his head, a furry bobble-tail and a British accent and is Roo's closest best friend. He lives in a part of the forest called Heffalump Hollow with his mother. He has a stuffed alligator named Alvin and enjoys a snack called rumpledoodles. Lumpy debuts in Pooh's Heffalump Movie. The characters were initially afraid of Heffalumps and set out to capture one. Likewise, Lumpy's mother told him not to leave Heffalump Hollow because of scary creatures outside of it. After Roo "captured" Lumpy, they became best friends and were not afraid of each other any more. Lumpy also features in Pooh's Heffalump Halloween Movie and My Friends Tigger & Pooh, and appears in Kingdom Hearts III.

He is voiced by Kyle Stanger in the films, and by Oliver Dillon in My Friends Tigger & Pooh.

Scary Trees edit

They are evil sentient trees who frighten or attack anybody they see. They debut in Boo to You Too! Winnie the Pooh where Piglet has a terrifying encounter with two of them while fleeing into the woods. After that, they do not appear for the remainder of the franchise. They do however appear in the video game series, usually serving as obstacles.

Mama Heffalump edit

Mama Heffalump is Lumpy's mother and the biggest resident of the Hundred Acre Wood. She first appears in Pooh's Heffalump Movie saving Roo from being trapped in a pile of logs, and later appears in episodes of My Friends Tigger & Pooh.

Voiced by Brenda Blethyn/Patricia Parris.

Darby edit

Darby is a 6-year-old feisty, imaginative and tomboyish redheaded girl who is the hostess of My Friends Tigger & Pooh and is believed to be Christopher Robin's younger sister. She is the leader of the problem-solving Super Sleuths along with Tigger, Pooh and her pet puppy Buster. They are the only four characters to appear in every episode. Darby is brave, inquisitive, clever and imaginative. Her catchphrases are "Time to slap my cap" and "Good sleuthin', everyone!" For the most part, she replaced Christopher Robin, who only appeared in two episodes of My Friends Tigger & Pooh, but the episode "Christopher Froggin" reveals that she is Christopher Robin's young best friend.

Voiced by Chloë Grace Moretz (US Version), Kimberlea Berg (UK Version)

Buster edit

Buster is Darby's beloved and curious pet puppy and sidekick in My Friends Tigger & Pooh. He is white and wears a red collar with a gold tag. He appears in every episode and is a member of the Super Sleuths. Though he often seems to be only tagging along with the group, he is often a valuable asset in their work. Buster likes to yap loudly when he is excited or on the scent of something.

Voiced by Dee Bradley Baker

Evelyn Robin edit

Evelyn Robin is a major character in Disney's 2018 feature film Christopher Robin. She is the wife of Christopher Robin and the mother of Madeline Robin. She is often worried about her husband's workaholic tendencies because it means that he spends less time with his family and other wishes her husband would be more silly and fun-loving and spend more time with her and Madeline. She discovers that Winnie the Pooh and the other stuffed animals of the Hundred Acre Woods are alive.

Evelyn Robin was portrayed by Hayley Atwell.

Madeline Robin edit

Madeline Robin is a major character in Disney's 2018 feature film Christopher Robin. She is the daughter of Christopher and Evelyn Robin. Much like Christopher was at her age, Madeline is kind, friendly, and brave. Madeline is worried about her father's workaholic tendencies since it means he spends less time with Madeline. She is one of the few people besides Christopher that knows Winnie the Pooh and the rest of the Hundred Acre Wood residents are alive.

Madeline Robin was portrayed by Bronte Carmichael.

Recurring characters in The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh edit

Bugs edit

A swarm of green insects who invade Rabbit's garden in several episodes of The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and try to eat his vegetables. They resemble caterpillars, but are much shorter and have only six limbs. The leader wears an old-fashioned bicorne and acts like an army general. They are the main antagonists in Winnie the Pooh and Christmas Too. In "The Bug Stops Here", Roo, Dexter, and Pooh Bear befriend an enormous, yet friendly bug after it was kicked out of its group due to his big appetite for food. He was soon presented as a replacement bug for Christopher Robin's science project after his first one ran away by accident. After he was released, he was welcomed back into the clan by his fellow bugs after Rabbit begrudgingly gave up everything from his garden to satisfy his hunger.

Christopher Robin's mother edit

Appearing only in The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and in The Book of Pooh: Stories from the Heart, Christopher Robin's mother's face is never shown. She is normally seen from behind, and when we see the front of her, she is usually seen from the chest down. She enforces the rules on her son, but is usually calm and patient with him and loves him very much. His father is never seen or mentioned. Just like her son, she has light brown hair, and she's a grandmother of Madeline Robin.

Voiced by Patricia Parris and most recently Vicki Kenderes-Eibner. The character also appears near the beginning of the live-action film Christopher Robin, portrayed by Katy Carmichael

Crows edit

A flock of crows appears in several episodes of The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh trying to steal Rabbit's vegetables. There are commonly three or four of them. A bigger and more fiendish version of the crows appear only in "A Very Very Large Animal" stealing food from a picnic and eating corn in Rabbit's garden. A redesigned version of the crows appears briefly in Tigger's Honey Hunt, Springtime with Roo and Pooh's Heffalump Movie.

Dexter edit

Owl's young cousin who wears glasses. He appeared in "Owl in the Family" and "The Bug Stops Here". In the former, his parents Torbet and Ophelia appear, and in the latter, he becomes friends with Roo, who is the same age as him, while Pooh babysits them. He talks in a similar manner to Owl.

Voiced by Hal Smith.

Grandfather Gopher edit

Gopher's grandfather who prefers to "dream" rather than "do". Gopher calls him "Grandpappy". He appears in "To Dream the Impossible Scheme" during the "Pewter Pickaxe" contest that Gopher is desperate to see him win by building an above-ground underground city. He also appears briefly in "Easy Come, Easy Gopher" and is mentioned in "Grown But Not Forgotten".

Voiced by Jim Cummings.

Papa, Mama, and Junior Heffalump edit

A family of Heffalumps who appeared in "There's No Camp Like Home" and "Trap as Trap Can". Piglet was afraid of Heffalumps before they met and became friends. They live in a house made of logs. Junior wants to make his father, who has many implausible allergies, proud of him.

The Pack Rats edit

Three rodents (all voiced by Jim Cummings) who appear as recurring antagonists. They steal anything they can and leave a walnut in exchange, thinking it as payment. The orange Pack Rat is fat and dimwitted, the brown one is grumpy and complaining, and the gray one is their leader. They debut in "Nothing But the Tooth" where they are more like real villains, but in "The Rats Who Came to Dinner", they turn out to be misunderstood and actually help the characters. However, they always return to their urge to steal. Their third and final appearance is in "Oh, Bottle!"

Skippy edit

A very large sheepdog belonging to a neighbor of Christopher Robin's. He appears in "Sorry, Wrong Slusher" and "A Pooh Day Afternoon". He is a nice dog, but sometimes makes trouble for the characters. Piglet is afraid of him (as shown in "Sorry, Wrong Slusher", where he thinks Skippy is the "slusher" that Christopher Robin and the animals are afraid of). Unlike other animal characters, Skippy is not anthropomorphized.

They are a Woozle and a Heffalump respectively and try to steal as much honey as they can.

Characters based on the books edit

Christopher Robin edit

Christopher Robin is the former best friend of Winnie the Pooh and his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood, who brought them food and spent quality time with them, but when he left to go to university to become a doctor, the visits stopped. Five years later, Christopher visits with his fiancée, Mary, whom he met during his studies, but discovers that Pooh and Piglet have regressed into feral killers during his absence and is taken prisoner after watching Piglet kill Mary; he is also shown Eeyore's remains (Eeyore was cannibalised by the other animals in order to ensure their survival). Pooh tortures Christopher both physically (by whipping him with Eeyore's tail) and psychologically (by showing him Mary's incinerated skeletal remains and showering him in her blood). Christopher is later freed by Maria, Alice and Jessica, and saves Maria from Pooh by crushing him in between two cars, but fails to kill him. Christopher begs Pooh to spare Maria, promising that he will stay in the woods with him forever, but Pooh, telling Christopher "You left", kills Maria, although he allows Christopher to flee. Seeing that Pooh is no longer the friend he once knew, he flees from the woods.

Played by Nikolai Leon and Frederick Dallaway (young) in the first film, and by Scott Chambers and Peter DeSouza-Feighoney (young) in the second film.

Winnie-the-Pooh edit

An anthropomorphic bear and Christopher Robin's childhood best friend. After Christopher leaves for university to continue his studies, Pooh and his friends are slowly driven to starvation and are traumatised when they are forced to kill and eat Eeyore to survive, which leads them to abandon their humanity and return to their feral instincts. Over the years, Pooh and his friends ambush and murder numerous visitors in the Hundred Acre Wood, and take Christopher prisoner when he comes to visit. Though Pooh and Piglet go on a rampage and kill a group of university girls, Christopher manages to escape captivity and ram a car into Pooh, almost killing him, but Pooh barely survives. Despite his hatred for Christopher, Pooh reluctantly allows him to flee from the woods.

The second film reveals that Pooh was created during a scientific experiment, in which bear DNA was combined with human DNA from Christopher's brother, Billy.

Played by Craig-David Dowsett in the first film, and by Ryan Oliva in the second film.

Piglet edit

Pooh's best friend and an anthropomorphic pig. Like Pooh, he returns to his feral roots after Christopher Robin leaves the woods for university. When Christopher returns to the woods with Mary, his fiancée, he witnesses Piglet strangling her to death right in front of him. Piglet is later ambushed and bludgeoned by Alice, but survives. He is later killed in the sequel.

Played by Chris Cordell in the first film, and by Eddy McKenzie in the second film.

Owl edit

Pooh's friend and an anthropomorphic owl who has also returned to his feral roots. He appeared in an animation sequence in the first film and is one of the main antagonists of the sequel, alongside Pooh.

Played by Marcus Massey, who portrayed Colt in the first film.

Tigger edit

Pooh's friend and an anthropomorphic tiger who has also returned to his feral roots.

Tigger was absent from the first film due to Tigger not entering public domain until 2024. He makes his first appearance in the sequel.

Played by Lewis Santer.

Lexy edit

Christopher’s childhood friend, who initially disbelieves that Winnie-the-Pooh is real; she survives the attack from Pooh’s rampage.

Played by Tallulah Evans.

Mary edit

Mary is Christopher Robin's fiancée, whom he met during his studies. Some time after they graduate, Christopher takes Mary to the Hundred Acre Wood to meet Pooh and the others, but find it in a desolate state and that Pooh and Piglet have become embittered, feral killers. Mary is subsequently garrotted by Piglet with a steel chain, until he breaks her neck. Pooh and Piglet then burn her corpse, and her incinerated, skeletal remains are later shown to Christopher by Pooh in order to torture him psychologically.

Played by Paula Coiz.

Maria edit

A university student who rents a cabin near the Hundred Acre Wood along with some friends to recover from a traumatic stalking experience. She and her friends are ambushed by a now-feral Pooh and Piglet and killed one by one. Maria is the last one to die, with Pooh slashing her throat despite Christopher Robin's pleas for him to spare her; before slashing her throat, Pooh speaks for the first time in years to remind Christopher "You left".

Played by Natasha Tosini.

Tina edit

Played by May Kelly.

Charlene and Darrel edit

A travelling couple who briefly meet Maria while buying supplies in a garage. The two are later taken prisoner by Pooh and Piglet in the Hundred Acre Wood where Darrel is killed and Charlene is routinely mauled by Piglet. Charlene is found and freed by Maria, Jessica and Alice after Christopher Robin directs them to her, but she sees her face in a mirror and becomes determined to kill Piglet in revenge.
