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.

Synopsis

On Halloween, 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, believing that if he's not afraid of something as scary as the dummy, he won't be afraid of anything. 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.

Sympathetic to Piglet's fears, Pooh, Eeyore and Tigger decide to avoid the frightening aspects of Halloween and throw Piglet a "Hallo-wasn't" party instead. When the three costumed friends show up at Piglet's house, he mistakes them for a monster and flees. Pooh, Eeyore and Tigger discover Piglet 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 his rear. Startled, Piglet runs off into the Hundred Acre Wood.

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 his friend, Piglet summons his courage and uses his scary dummy to "rescue" Pooh.

Back home, the friends all celebrate Piglet's bravery, and Piglet goes trick-or-treating with them.
