- In The House at Pooh Corner Piglet and Pooh fall into a deep hole which they eventually decide must be a trap dug by a Heffalump. Pooh suggests that when the Heffalump comes along, they should try to confuse it by claiming that they dug the trap for him. Piglet lapses into a dream sequence about all the brave and witty things he's going to say to the Heffalump... and then when Christopher Robin finds the hole, a panicking Piglet mistakes him for the Heffalump, and all the brave, witty things he was planning on saying end up in a confused muddle:
"This is a trap for Poohs, and I'm waiting to fall into it, ho-ho, what's all this, and then I say ho-ho again."
"What?" said Christopher Robin.
"A trap for ho-ho's," said Piglet huskily. "I've just made it, and I'm waiting for the ho-ho to come-come."
- The original "heffalump trap" chapter from the first book is no less funny, with Piglet seeing Pooh in the trap with his head in a honey-pot, mistaking him for a heffalump, and sounding the alarm:
- Just about all of Tigger's antics in the second chapter of The House At Pooh Corner ("In Which Tigger Comes To The Forest And Has Breakfast").
- David Benedictus's Return To The Hundred Acre Woods is a bit uneven as a whole, but has some really hilarious parts, one standout being when Owl tries to solve a crossword puzzle and gets stumped by "Big bird (3 letters)." He ends up writing "EGL," which he suspects is wrong -- but try as he might, he can't squeeze "OSTRIDGE" or even "HORK" into three letters.
- Eeyore's sole attempt at writing a poem in the last chapter of The House At Pooh Corner. He's genuinely trying to write a "goodbye" poem to Christopher Robin, but the poem ends up being mostly about Eeyore not being able to find any good rhymes:
Christopher Robin is going.
At least I think he is.
But he is going-
I mean he goes
(To rhyme with "knows")
Do we care?
( To rhyme with "where")
(I haven't got a rhyme for that "is" in the second line yet. Bother.)
(Now I haven't got a rhyme for bother. Bother.)
Those two bothers will have
to rhyme with each other
The fact is this is more difficult than I thought
(Very good indeed)
To begin again,
But it is easier
Christopher Robin, good-bye
And all your friends
I mean all your friend
(Very awkward this, it keeps going wrong)
Well, anyhow, we send
- The chapter where Kanga and Roo come in, initiating a Zany Scheme by Rabbit to get rid of them, involving Rabbit kidnapping Roo while Piglet takes his place inside her pouch. When Kanga discovers Piglet, she decides to just go with it and pretends to think that he's Roo, so that he grows increasingly frustrated as she gives him Roo's medicine and bathes him, all while insulting him:
...you know what I told you yesterday about making faces. If you keep making faces like Piglet, you will grow up to look like Piglet--and then think how sorry you will be.
- In Piglet's Big Movie, Pooh is distracting Kanga with small talk about whether the animal sitting in a nearby tree is a bird or a fish. The situation is taken from the original novel, but in the movie, Tigger (who was not present for the scene in the book) intervenes with "It looks kinda wiggly! It could be a jellyfish! ...I think it's more of a peanut-butter-and-jellyfish, isn't it?" All of which is amusing, but the real Funny Moments comes in the next scene, where the camera zooms in on Kanga's house... right past a tree where a really happy-looking fish is sitting on a branch.
- Springtime For Roo has Pooh and the others spring cleaning for Rabbit, after coming in contact with too much dust, Pooh begins the most dramatic, overblown sneeze "that has ever been sneezed in the Hundred Acre Wood", even adding a whimsical little musical number inbetween it all.
Pooh: Sniffity sniff, whistley wheeze,
Here it comes, a great big sneeze...
- "Three Little Piglets" is simply the funniest episode of the series, or any Winnie the Pooh series, for that matter. Pooh tries to read the story of the Three Little Pigs, but he and Tigger goof around with it in every way imaginable: Pooh continually attempts to insert honey into the story, the wolf becomes an annoyed Rabbit wearing a Big Bad Wolf costume, he mistakenly mixes in elements from other fairy tales ("the Big Bad Bunny was going to see his grandmother..."), the house of sticks becomes a house of cards, Tigger tries to save the pigs as the Masked Offender, and finally, Rabbit ends up getting drenched by a honey eruption.
- The whole show had a good number of crowning moments of funny really; one that stands out is when Christopher Robin sees a "slusher movie" and Tigger reads the title, which is basically a summary of every slasher film/series plot...
Tigger: "The Slusher Who Slushed Everyone - And Then Came Back To Slush 'Em Again!"
- Heck, the entirety of the Slusher episode was a huge Funny Moment. Especially when Tigger gets on Christopher Robin's nerves.
- "Un-Valentine's Day" needs mentioning here, if not the entire episode then at least...
Piglet: I AM CUUUUUUUUUPPIIIIIIIDDDDDDD!!!
- The western episodes. For example, this exchange from The Good, The Bad and the Tigger:
Tigger: I am the Tigger with no name.
Pooh: I am the Pooh with a name! If only I could remember it. Oh bother.
- A reminder to those who don't get it: Pooh's name is Edward Bear, except odds are almost no one who watched this knew that...
- The scene in the Christmas Special when Pooh, dressed up as Santa Claus, is stuck in Tigger's chimney. Tigger thinks it's really Santa and starts bouncing gleefully around: "SANTY'S COMIN' DOWN THE CHIM-EN-Y!" It really has to be seen to be appreciated.
- The gang's feeble efforts to hide the fact they deflated the balloon Christopher Robin lent Pooh include Rabbit painting a boulder red (which evidently feels much heavier than the average balloon), Piglet dressing as a balloon (with his head and limbs still visible), and Tigger making a bubble gum bubble (which doesn't last very long).
- When Christopher Robin tries telling everyone about Eeyore's missing tail:
Christopher Robin: Something tragic has befallen a member of our community! I present to you, Exhibit A! *camera pans to Eeyore*
Kanga: Oh! That is tragic.
- Eeyore's various replacement tails, which include a weathervane, a chalkboard (with "TAEL" written on it, no less), an anchor, and a paragraph.
- When they think that they've caught the Backson ( It's really Pooh), everyone gives an excuse as to why they shouldn't be the one to go down and face the monster. Roo's solution?
"Send the pig."
- Made all the more funny by Roo's completely deadpan delivery.
- B'loon's appearances just keep getting funnier and funnier because everyone's treating it like an actual character when all it does is float around.
- Rabbit and Piglet's panicked "Wait! B'loon! Don't leave!" and "You're the only one who can get us out of here!" is particularly funny -- they honestly sound on the verge of despair because they think the balloon is deserting them in their time of need.
- And then B'loon, despite being a normal, non-sentient balloon manages to end up taking all the credit for finding Christopher Robin and getting the animals out of the pit. And then floats away with the prize honey. What a Jerkass Companion Cube!
- When the entire gang (save for Piglet) falls into the Backson pit and Piglet is scared to go into the woods and search for help, Owl flies out of the Backson pit, gives Piglet a speech to send him on his way, and then flies back into the pit. Guess what the gang first mentions to Owl? How good his speech was.
- This adult troper laughed her head off at Rabbit's horrified expression when Piglet off-handedly produces a rope to rescue the six of them from the pit...and then cuts it into six pieces, one for each of them. HEH.
- This really made me LOL
Rabbit: "Why didn't we think to bring a rope?"
Piglet: "Well, there is this rope!"
- Cue an Epic Face from Rabbit.
- Eeyore got a lot of funny moments in the movie, but many of them were simply giving flat or wide-eyed looks to the audience.
- Let's not forget this:
Eeyore: ("singing") I found this anchor over there, now it's on my derriere, and nobody seems to care.
- The Stinger. All of it. The Backson was real all along, looks exactly as described... and is picking up the objects left in the forest to return them to their rightful owner before falling into the pit.
- Not to mention his voice, which sounds almost akin to Dom DeLuise.
- Tigger bouncing B'loon because B'loon was "sneaking up on" Pooh. And the tide turns soon afterward when B'loon "sneaks up" behind Tigger, attaches to him with static electricity, and so on. When Pooh suggests that it seems B'loon wants to stick with Tigger, suddenly Tigger gets excited about the idea of having a sidekick! "But no-- what if something happened to the poor guy?"
- Tigger dragging Eeyore along as his "Tigger 2". The entire sequence. And Eeyore cleverly escapes it by diving underwater and breathing through a reed. Later, while they're in the pit together, Eeyore makes a comment that emphasizes how much he didn't enjoy it (and could even double as an insult, but he didn't really say it in a mean-spirited way):
Eeyore: The most wonderful thing about Tiggers is... you're the only one.
- Pooh's hunger-induced auditory, and then visual, hallucinations. What a heck of a Disney Acid Sequence.
- The "issue/achoo" sequence with Owl, Pooh and Eeyore.
