My Friends Tigger & Pooh is an American computer-animated children's television series inspired by A. A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh. The series was developed by Walt Disney Television Animation, and was executive produced by Brian Hohlfeld.


The series features Pooh and other characters from the book and prior television adaptations and introduces two new characters: a feisty and imaginative 6-year-old red-headed girl named Darby and her dog Buster.

Production and broadcast[edit]

Developed by Walt Disney Television Animation with animation from Japanese company Polygon Pictures, My Friends Tigger & Pooh was executive produced and story edited by Brian Hohlfeld.[1][2] It premiered on Disney Channel's Playhouse Disney block on May 12, 2007.[3] The series was renewed for a second season in June 2007.[2] Beginning with this show Travis Oates assumed the role of Piglet, taking over for John Fiedler, who died on June 25, 2005, two years prior to the debut of the series. It was renewed for a 35-episode third season in March 2008.[4]

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.
