OUR WORD TO PARENTS:The following is a brief look at the content found in this G-rated film aimed at kids. A few scenes (accompanied by related music), especially one in which a central character is briefly swept away in an impressive-looking avalanche, may be frightening, suspenseful and/or unsettling for some kids - especially younger ones - but that's all dependent, of course, on their age, level of maturity and tolerance for such material.Beyond that, a few brief bits of mostly unintentional breakage of items, and a smattering of bad attitudes, the rest of the film is void of any other major objectionable content. Should you still be concerned about the film's appropriateness, however, we suggest that you more closely examine our more detailed content listings.


QUICK TAKE:
Children's/Animated: Tigger the tiger sets out on a quest to find others like himself without realizing that his friends, including Winnie the Pooh, are his real family.
WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Younger kids probably will, but older ones and teens will probably avoid this film like the plague.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: G
For not containing material that would warrant a higher rating.
CAST AS ROLE MODELS:
While it's questionable whether kids look up to animated toys as role models, most parents would probably consider most of the characters here - save for Rabbit at times for his not wanting to help - as decent to okay role models.

ALCOHOL OR DRUG USE: None
  • None.
  • BLOOD/GORE: None
  • None.
  • DISRESPECTFUL/BAD ATTITUDE: Minor
  • Rabbit has some of both toward Tigger for his bouncing and not being observant while doing so.
  • Although their intentions are admirable, some may see Tigger's friends as having a little of both for writing a fake letter to him from his family (and latter disguising themselves as his family members) and then not having the courage to tell him the truth about that.
  • FRIGHTENING SCENES: *Moderate
  • The following (which is often accompanied by some degree of suspenseful music) may or may not be frightening/suspenseful/unsettling for kids, all dependent on their age, level of maturity and tolerance for such material.
  • After Tigger sets a boulder in motion, it rapidly rolls down a hill, dragging many of the characters behind it until stopping in a body of water.
  • A swarm of bees flies after Winnie the Pooh and Piglet (who fall down through a tree) after they've disturbed their nest (they also chase Eeyore after his two friends have made it back down to the ground).
  • Some kids may not like scenes where Tigger is out by himself, shivering in the cold dark.
  • Tigger crawls out onto a branch (over a deep ravine) trying to retrieve his pendant. Once at the end, the branch starts to crack and eventually breaks, sending Tigger falling down the ravine (but he turns out to be okay at the bottom).
  • An avalanche forms and Tigger races to bounce his friends to safety up in a tree. He succeeds, but is then swept away by the massive wave of snow that cascades down a mountainside. As such, we see Tigger on top of a boulder being carried by the snow over a cliff. Roo then jumps to his rescue, awakens the unconscious tiger and both jump off to safety.
  • GUNS/WEAPONS: Minor
  • Tigger and Roo use the tip of a sword/knife to open a pendant.
  • Although we don't see the actual guns, during a musical number that spans through time, we briefly see some cartoon scenes from the Old West that include gun smoke coming from opposing buildings, as well as bullet holes appearing in some wood siding.
  • IMITATIVE BEHAVIOR: Minor
  • Tigger bounces around everywhere he goes (which may have little kids doing the same).
  • Winnie the Pooh climbs a tree and then sticks his hand inside a hole to retrieve some honey (and encounters some bees none too happy about his plans).
  • JUMP SCENES: None
  • None.
  • MUSIC (SCARY/TENSE): Moderate
  • A moderate amount of suspenseful and dramatically adventurous music plays in several scenes.
  • MUSIC (INAPPROPRIATE): None
  • None.
  • PROFANITY: None
  • None.
  • SEX/NUDITY: None
  • None.
  • SMOKING: None
  • None.
  • TENSE FAMILY SCENES: Mild
  • Tigger longs for having and finding a family for much of the film.
  • TOPICS TO TALK ABOUT: Mild
  • The feeling of being an outsider or that you're all alone (that's how Tigger feels).
  • What family trees are - Tigger is told to look for his to find his family.
  • The efforts that Tigger's friends take in trying to make him happy (writing a fake letter, disguising themselves to look like other Tiggers).
  • That friends are often as much family members as are blood-related relatives.
  • VIOLENCE: Minor
  • Tigger accidentally knocks over Winnie the Pooh.
  • Tigger accidentally sets a huge boulder in motion that falls from a cliff and lands on Eeyore's stick house, destroying it.
  • Tigger accidentally destroys Eeyore's house again.
  • A bee stings Winnie the Pooh on the hand.
  • Although we don't see the actual guns, during a musical number that spans through time, we briefly see some cartoon scenes from the Old West that include gun smoke coming from opposing buildings, as well as bullet holes appearing in some wood siding.
  • During a musical number where Tigger's friends sing that they have to be like him, some of them purposefully break objects (since his bouncing ways occasionally lead to things being accidentally broken).
