My Friends Tigger & Pooh is an American computer animated interactive children's television series inspired by Winnie-the-Pooh by A. A. Milne. The television series features Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends, including two new characters: a brave 6-year-old red-headed girl named Darby and her pet dog and sidekick Buster. Although Darby appears to be the main human friend of Pooh and the gang and the leader of the Super Sleuths, Christopher Robin makes several cameos in the series.

Developed by Walt Disney Television Animation, 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. In 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.

On July 4, 2010, My Friends Tigger & Pooh was omitted from the Playhouse Disney lineup, while it returned October 3, 2010 with new episodes. However, since February 14, 2011, when Playhouse Disney rebranded into Disney Junior, the show went off the air for 5 years and returned to the air on September 12, 2016.

Owl and Gopher[edit]

Owl and Gopher make no appearances in the series at all, although Beaver loosely resembles Gopher. Beaver is a cameo character from Walt Disney's classic, Lady and the Tramp. However, Owl did appear in some books based on the series.

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."
