Winnie the Pooh and A Day for Eeyore  Season #3 Episode #7

Synopsis: While collecting pine cones, Pooh accidentally stumbles, and several go into a little river, over which spans a wooden bridge. As Pooh notes that the pine cones seem to almost race each other, the game is then dubbed 'Pooh Sticks.' Though in future races, twigs are substituted for pine cones. During one game, Rabbit, Pooh, Piglet and Roo are surprised when Eeyore floats through the middle of their 'Pooh Sticks' game. When asked how he ended up in the river, Eeyore claims he was 'bounced.' Given that word, there seems to be only one creature that could have done it: Tigger. The group go to Tigger to discuss this, but Tigger denies he 'bounced' Eeyore. It is then that the story's narrator interjects, and shows the characters that Tigger is lying. Tigger claims it was just a joke, and bounces off. Eeyore trudges off sadly, leading some to wonder if something is troubling him. Pooh finds him in his 'gloomy spot,' where Eeyore proclaims that today is his Birthday. Wanting to make him fe

The beautiful stream flows through the 100 Aker Wood, where it becomes larger and thus a river, which an old familiar wooden bridge crosses this river. Pooh would often wonder there, doing and thinking nothing in particular, but this occasion, something took his mind of nothing. A lovely fur cone and he makes a rhyme. He trips and tumbled to the old wooden bridge and drops the cone. He wants to find another one, but is taken by the peaceful river as he looks over the bridge and sees the cone float by. He wonders if the same thing will happen with the other cones and it did. Pooh watches with interest and which ones came out the other side first - and this was the beginning of a game called Poohsticks. Pooh invites his friends to play and they drop their sticks! They see a greyish one coming out - a large grey one. But it's not a stick, it's Eeyore, floating with his legs up in the river. He's not fishing, or sailing - but he is wanting someone to help him out. Maybe dropping stones will push Eeyore over to the other side... Pooh gets a stone and asks Eeyore to stop turning, but Eeyore he likes it. Rabbit counts down. Now! Pooh drops the stone, right onto Eeyore. Eeyore slowly crawls out of the river. They ask him how he got into the river and he says he was bounces, and the gang suspect Tigger. Tigger says he coughed, but Eeyore argues bounces. The narrator goes back to the top of page 245, where it is indeed discovered that Tigger leapt from the tree and bounced Eeyore. Tigger says it was a joke and bounced off. Rabbit is cross, but Eeyore is gloomy wondering why anyone would think of him and walks off sadly as the others wonder what's upsetting him. Eeyore sat by his gloomy spot in the rain, which became even gloomier than usual. He looks at his reflection thinking no one cares, as his personal rain cloud follows him. He tells Pooh it's his birthday, with no presents, no cake, no candles... Pooh hurries home and finds Piglet at his home and he tells Piglet about Eeyore. Pooh wants to get Eeyore a present and thinks of Hunny. He asks Piglet what he wants to give Eeyore and Piglet says he has a balloon at home. However, Pooh eats the hunny on the way. Oh bother. He goes to Owl. While Owl is bragging about his family, Pooh asks Owl what he's giving Eeyore. Pooh tells Owl that he's giving Eeyore a useful Pot and wants Owl to write happy birthday on it. HIPY PAPY BTHUTHDTH THU HDA BTHUTDY. A very Happy Birthday with love from Pooh. He thanks Owl and leaves as Owl flies to Christopher Robin to tell him of the news. Many happy returns of Eeyore's Birthday. On the way to Eeyore's birthday with a big red balloon, but he trips and the balloon bursts. Sadly, he goes to Eeyore, sitting gloomily by the stream. Good afternoon, if it is a good afternoon which Eeyore doubts. Piglet says he brought a present and Eeyore thinks he heard wrong. Eeyore falls to the ground when Piglet says he brought him a balloon. Red's Eeyore's favorite color. Pooh arrives with his useful pot. Eeyore puts Piglet's balloon into the pot and all are happy. Eeyore sits with Christopher Robin, Pooh, Kanga, Roo, Piglet Rabbit, and Owl, blowing out the candles of his iced chocolate cake. Tigger bounces Rabbit and is excited about the party. Rabbit is cross about Tigger bouncing Eeyore. However Christopher Robin says they all should play Poohsticks and they played for many contented hours, and Eeyore, who had never played before, wining more times than anyone else, but a cross Tigger didn't win any. The gang starts getting tired and congratulate Eeyore on a wonderful Birthday. As Tigger and Eeyore walk off, Eeyore tells Tigger his winning secret. Let your stick drop in a twitchy sort of way and Tigger bounces Eeyore again! Happy Birthday Eeyore.
