Bruce Reitherman was the voice for Christopher Robin in Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree. Tigger is one of the most loved characters in the Walt Disney pantheon!It is practically impossible to find anyone who does not love him. In the case of the Pooh stories, there were no real Villains; the closest thing would be Rabbit, who was the main antagonist. However, Tigger was simply fun loving and without question had some the best lines such as The name's Tigger! " Tigger also has one of the best songs, "The Wonderful Thing about Tiggers. Tigger was animated by one of the greatest Disney animators ever, Milt Kahl and voiced by Paul Winchell.
Winchell was a ventriloquist, actor, and comedian who would later provide the voice of Gargamel and Dick Dastardly. Winchell appeared in acting roles on numerous TV shows from the 1950's on through the 1970's. What many people do not know is that Paul Winchell, who had some medical training and was also an inventor; became the first person to build and patent a mechanical artificial heart which was implantable in the chest cavity.He was also honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for all of his work in television. "Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day, " 1968 is a film that combined live-action and hand painted cel animation.
