The wonderful thing about trivia, is trivia's a wonderful thing! Haven't I done this one before? Whatever. My creativity is always bouncing back and forth. Here is our thirteen things about The Tigger Movie that you probably didn't know. I bet you didn't know that I was gonna say that.

13. Originally planned as a direct-to-video release, until Disney Chairman Michael Eisner heard the Sherman Brothers score. Michael Eisner decided to release it theatrically in theaters worldwide.

12. Paul Winchell, the original voice of Tigger, was replaced by Jim Cummings, who had voiced Tigger in several later stories of The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. The reason given was the seventy-six-year-old's voice was just too scratchy now to properly portray the character. Walt Disney Imagineers heard about this, and insisted on hiring Winchell to provide Tigger's voice for the new "Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" attraction at Walt Disney World. He was, and it's Winchell's voice that is used in the ride.

11. This was the first Disney movie since Bedknobs and Broomsticks in 1971, to have songs by former Disney mainstays Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman.

10. Art Direction, character designs, and story boarding were all done in the United States, while the rest of the animation was done in Japan.

9. Stayed on American screens for twenty-three weeks, yet only earned forty-five and a half million dollars domestically.

8. When Tigger is searching through his barrel, looking for some evidence of his family, a ship's life preserver is thrown out. The name "R.M.S. MILNE" is clearly visible on it, referring to original Pooh author A.A. Milne.

7. The working title was "Winnie the Pooh and the Family Tree".

6. The film received 3 nominations on the Annie Awards including the Annie Award for Directing in a Feature Production, the Annie Award for Voice Acting in a Feature Production and the Annie Award for Music in a Feature Production.

5. The credits play over pictures from different scenes in the movie, done in the style of Ernest H. Shepard's original illustrations.

4. Is referenced by director Kevin Smith in An Evening with Kevin Smith 2: Evening Harder.

3. The song "Your Heart Will Lead You Home", a collaboration between Richard M. Sherman, Robert B. Sherman and Kenny Loggins, marks the first time that the Sherman brothers worked with another songwriter.

2. A scene that only appeared in the movie trailer where Piglet is covered up with a blanket and sitting next to a table with a candle stick was not shown in the actual movie.

1. The original trailer for the movie, as well as some of the television spots, had the song "Semi-Charmed Life" by Third Eye Blind. This had to be changed, because the song is about being addicted to crystal meth.
