As we continue our exploration of the toy box in the Toy Box here at the Treasure Tour, we come upon a wonderful thing. He's orange and black and, to the best of his knowledge, he's a one-of-a-kind sort of guy. His name is Tigger, and as we said, that's a wonderful thing.
The world was introduced to Tigger by A.A. Milne, the English storyteller who introduced Christopher Robin, Winnie-The-Pooh and his friends to the world. Milne's book, The House on Pooh Corner, was published in 1928, and so along came the bounciest bouncer to ever bounce into the hearts of children of all ages. The Tigger most people know today is the one voiced by Paul Winchell in the Disney movies (until Winchell's retirement in 1999), the affable, energetic, orange and black-striped whirlwind full of optimism and self-appreciation.
