My Friends Tigger & Pooh

PLAYHOUSE DISNEY – Monday 6 April – Friday 10 April, from 3pm

Enjoy a bumper week of your favourite characters from My Friends Tigger & Pooh with five brand new episodes in April. Join in the fun as the ‘Super Sleuths’ work together to solve the many mysteries of the Hundred Acre Wood! Here’s a brief look at what’s to come!

In “Pooh’s Bees Buzz Off”, Pooh has a honey of a problem when he can’t find any bees left in the Hundred Acre Wood! The Sleuths try to lure the bees back, but soon discover ALL the bugs are missing. Could it have something to do with Rabbit’s new machine? Hopefully their bug friend Small can provide some insect insight!  Then, in “Piglet’s Mystery Pet”, Piglet finds a lonely fish in a puddle and takes him home as his new pet.

But when the fish starts to grow legs, Piglet’s not sure what kind of pet he really has. After some observation, the Sleuths and Piglet learn that his pet has transformed from a fish to a frog: it was a tadpole Piglet found! In the end, Piglet has to let his beloved pet go so he can be where he truly belongs – with his froggy family.
