Boo to You Too! Winnie the Pooh is a Halloween television special based on the Disney television series The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, originally broadcast on October 25, 1996. Boo to You Too! was also incorporated into Pooh's Heffalump Halloween Movie, as a Halloween story told by Roo.
It's Halloween and Pooh and his friends are eager to go trick-or-treating. Piglet has never gone trick-or-treating, because he's always been too afraid. He builds a scary dummy, reasoning that if he's not afraid of something as scary as the dummy, he's not afraid of anything and begins to sing. The song starts with Piglet hiding from ghost shadows and approaching his dummy in which its arms move in the song. He then imagines his friends here and two curtains come to life forming ghosts and scaring his friends. Piglet would then force the ghosts to leave and his friends will hug him. The rest of the song results with Piglet climbing up and then down his dummy. Piglet convinces himself that he's brave enough to go this year, but when an overzealous Tigger describes all the "spookables" they can can expect to meet, like "Heffalumps, bug-eyed Woozles, and saw-toothed jagulars [sic]", Piglet gets scared and runs home to hide, encountering two living trees along the way.
Feeling badly for Piglet, Pooh, Eeyore and Tigger decide to throw a fright-free "Hallo-wasn't" party for Piglet. Tigger begins making is own Hallo-wasn't with a puppet piglet and begins celebrating in a song. The song begins with Tigger a vampire and then a witch costume which also makes a mirror crack and making a shadow over the piglet puppet. He then lights three jack-o-lanterns in which their faces enlarge showing Tigger with some colorful jumping punpkin who turn into heffalumps. Tigger puts himself and the puppet in his drawer which rises to dizzying heights and he rides the drawer in a vortex full of monsters. He then encounters a headless horsemen whose head eats him. Tigger is next seen walking with green ghosts when a scary jack-in-the-box Tigger-like monster appears behind them with Tigger on its tongue. Tigger throws a jack-o-lantern at the camera and is seen riding a broom over a haunted house in which the gate opens and ghosts suddeny appear. Next Tigger is seen running down a hallway full of paintings of heffalumps and woozles in which some of the paintings' heads follow him. The next scene shows Tigger working in a lab and wearing a heffalump costume. An outer range of the haunted house is shown to be a globe held by Tigger. The last scene shows Tigger leading an herd of ghosts, heffalumps, and woozles and says "boo" at the end of the song. Pooh and Eeyore in their halloween costumes arrive, but at first tigger thought they were spookables. After Pooh tells him that their going to piglet's house, he goes with them. Piglet flees from his home when he mistakes the costumed three for a monster. Upon arriving at Piglet's house, Pooh, Eeyore and Tigger discover he is missing, and go off in search of him. Simultaneously, Piglet goes looking for Pooh and the others, but when he can't find any of his friends, Piglet believes they've all been taken by monsters. While he reflects upon this point, one of Rabbit's vegetable carts gets loose and rolls into Piglet, tapping him on the rear. Startled, Piglet runs off into the Hundred Acre Wood.
After hearing Piglet scream, Pooh asks if it was Eeyore screaming in which he didn't. A branch taps Eeyore making him jump leading Tigger to think their scared. After admiting that they are scared lighting suddenly flashes as they come face to face with a scary tree. Pooh gets the idea to use their costumes to pretend to be spookables to save Piglet, but are scared off by Rabbit's loud snoring. Still wearing their costumes, Pooh, Eeyore and Tigger make their way to the Hundred Acre Wood. Pooh's costume gets stuck in a tree branch, and the other two struggle to pull him out. Hearing Pooh's cries for help, Piglet happens upon the scene and believes two monsters are attacking his friend. Determined to help Pooh, Piglet summons his courage and uses his scary dummy to "rescue" Pooh. However this fails when he trips and rolls over Pooh, Eeyore, Gopher, and Rabbit and crashes in Rabbit's garden. The dummy begins to move around on its own (holding Piglet). It throws Piglet just before falling down which also ends the stormy night, revealing the moon and stars.
Back home, the friends all celebrate Piglet's bravery, and Piglet goes trick-or-treating with them.
