Owl and Gopher

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 forest, Tigger turns to Pooh and, disappointed, says "I miss Gopher."
