Yes, even a series as child-oriented as Winnie the Pooh has them.
- The most notable occurs at the end of The Tigger Movie, where Tigger and Roo scale an avalanche using the Whoopty-Dooper Loopty-Looper Alley-Ooper Bounce, complete with an epic score and a memorable moment of the two of them flying directly through a hollowed log before it's crushed by a large boulder.
- Also prior to this, Tigger had essentially performed a Heroic Sacrifice by bouncing his friends to safety from the avalanche one by one on a tree branch (this has special meaning considering said tree was that which Tigger had connected as his "family tree"), getting caught by the falling snow while throwing Rabbit to safety. At which point a mortified Roo finally perfects the Whoopty-Dooper Loopty-Looper Alley-Ooper Bounce he'd continuously practiced and failed at throughout the film to find and revive Tigger.
- Pooh himself gets two Moments of Awesome in the penultimate chapter of the original novel, when the forest is flooded; first when he makes a boat out of an empty honey pot and uses it to paddle all the way from his own house to Christopher Robin's, the second one when he gets a moment's flash of brilliance and suggests that they can make Christopher Robin's umbrella a boat so that both of them can row over to Piglet's house and rescue him.
- And in the sequel, The House At Pooh Corner, it's Piglet who gets two Moments of Awesome. The first, and by far the most dramatic one, is when Owl's house is knocked over in a storm, trapping Pooh, Piglet and Owl inside -- and Piglet is the only one small enough to squeeze out through the letterbox and go get help. The second one, which also happens in Many Adventures, is also the Heartwarming Moments when he gives up his own house so that Owl will have a place to live.
