My Friends Tigger & Pooh is an American computer-animated children's television series inspired by A. A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh. The series features Pooh and other characters from the book and prior television adaptations and introduces two new characters: Christopher Robin's 6-year-old sister Darby and her dog Buster. Darby is the main human protagonist and the series' hostess and the leader of the Super Sleuths. Christopher Robin makes two appearances over the course of the series.

Developed by Walt Disney Television Animation with animation from Japanese company Polygon Pictures, the show premiered on Disney Channel's Playhouse Disney block on May 12, 2007. The show's theme song is a pop song that is played at the beginning of each episode. It was written by Jellyfish lead singer Andy Sturmer and is performed by former Letters to Cleo singer Kay Hanley. Starting with Season 2, Chloë Grace Moretz as Darby (replacing Kay Hanley) performed the theme. Also, beginning with this series Travis Oates assumed the role of Piglet, taking over for John Fiedler, who died in 2005, two years prior to the debut of the series.

Episodes[edit]

Owl and Gopher[edit]

Owl and Gopher never appeared in the series, although Beaver loosely resembles Gopher and Owl did appear in some books based on the series. Beaver is a cameo character from Disney's 1955 classic, Lady and the Tramp.

Also, in the direct-to-DVD film Tigger & Pooh and a Musical Too, when Beaver guesses the right password to go to Tigger's side of the Wood, Tigger disappointedly says "I miss Gopher."
