"Try a Little Something New" is a song from the Welcome to Pooh Corner Cable TV series which premiered in 1983 on the Disney Channel (which was also that channel's inaugural season). The song was written by the Academy Award-winning songwriting duo of Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman.
New episodes played from 1983-1986 in the first run. Reruns continued to air until 1997. The Sherman Brothers wrote five songs, one for each of the major characters to sing, repeatedly each week. A storyline would "belong" to one character and at the end of an episode, the appropriate character would sing his "lesson song".
About the song
"Try a Little Something New" is sung by Rabbit. It is about how Rabbit deals with his "naughty habits" of mundanity and stagnation.
The song was re-written for the later 1999 VHS production Sing a Song with Pooh Bear, in which Tigger and Owl perform it as a duet.
