Winnie The Pooh and his pals have had many adventures over the years, and even though Pooh gets top billing most of the time, Web Watch knows that Tigger is the real star of the show.
Others seem to appreciate the timeless Pooh and Tigger stories as well, and every occasionally we will run across some Tigger and Pooh fan fiction – you know, those fan-created stories featuring their favorite characters. Heck, in 2000, the Canadian Medical Association published their own fan fiction featuring the characters in the 100-Acre Wood entitled PATHOLOGY IN THE HUNDRED ACRE WOOD: A NEURODEVELOPENTAL PERSPECTIVE ON A.A. MILNE that the Pooh characters suffered from various mental and psychological illnesses:
- Winnie the Pooh has ADHD and OCD, has very little brain, and suffers from obesity and binge eating
- Piglet has a generalized anxiety disorder
- Eeyore has dysthymic disorder, housing problems, and suffers from a traumatic tail amputation
- Rabbit, it should come as no surprise, is narcissistic
- Tigger also suffers from ADHD and hyperactive-impulsive tendencies
- Kanga and Roo have to deal with Kanga being a single, unemployed parent while Roo hangs out with a bunch of undesirables – like Tigger
But if we’re going to talk about quality fan fiction in the Pooh universe, we can’t ignore works that go to the trouble of including artwork inspired by the original drawings.
Which brings us to ALIEN vs POOH, a mashup story that asks the question, “what would the Pooh stories be like if the Alien also hung out in the Hundred Acre Wood?”.
All Web Watch can say is that any story that has Tigger wearing an hydraulic exoskeleton is a story worth reading. Now, if only Disney had made this into a film instead of bringing us Lumpy the Heffalump – that would have been some Disney merchandise worth getting!
