Plot[edit]

Pooh, Piglet and Tigger literally pop out of the Book of Pooh into Christopher Robin's room, but can't find Christopher there. Tigger decides to search for Christopher's journal, in hopes of finding out where he's gone, but ends up making a real mess. While they're trying to clean up the room, Piglet notices that Christopher Robin had marked some chapters of the Book of Pooh with special bookmarks featuring each of his friends. As the story continues, Rabbit, Kessie and Eeyore each show up too and at one point, they're forced to hide when Christopher Robin's mother comes upstairs after hearing their voices and mistakes them for her son. One by one, the characters ask Mr. Narrator to read the book's stories for them, leading to the following episodes:

  • Over the Hill (Pooh's Story)
  • Tigger's Replacement (Piglet's Story)
  • Kessie Wises Up (Kessie's Story)
  • Greenhorn with a Green Thumb (Rabbit's Story)
  • Night of the Waking Tigger (Tigger's Story)
  • Eeyore's Tailiversary (Eeyore's Story)

At the end, Pooh and his friends clean up the mess they've made and go into hiding when Christopher Robin returns with his mother and after she leaves, they come out of hiding and Christopher Robin reveals that he had his journal with him all along. He proceeds to read them the stories he marked, but finds out that they had already read them. Tigger suggests that Christopher Robin should read his journal to them instead, in which he agrees.
