No Rabbit’s a Fortress is the first segment of the sixth episode of the second season of The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. It originally aired on ABC on October 14, 1989.


When it’s the last straw for Rabbit because Pooh, Piglet and Tigger keep messing up his garden, he builds a fortress around it, complete with booby traps. When he realizes he has trapped himself in, he needs his friends to get him out. Can they get Rabbit out of his fortress?


Rabbit is tired of Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, and Gopher always ruining his garden, so he builds a fortress around it. Pooh, Piglet and Tigger begins to walk towards the fortress and they also fall for all the booby traps that Rabbit has installed in their way. When they reach the fortress, Rabbit explains to them that the fortress is used to keep Pooh and his friends away from his garden. Pooh and his friends feel sad and walk away.

Rabbit is excited and starts to garden, but he realizes that he had forgotten to build a door and that he has trapped himself. He tries to call Pooh and his friends back, but they don’t believe him and begin to walk farther away. Rabbit was able to lure them back by luring them with honey for Pooh and bouncing for Tigger. Pooh and his friends tried everything to get Rabbit out of the fortress but they failed on every plan. They all decide to blast Rabbit out when they hear Gopher says that his tunnel needs to be blasted. Gopher blasts open the fortress but Rabbit is nowhere to be seen. Pooh and his friends try to look for Rabbit but they cannot find him anywhere and concludes that he is gone for good. But soon they spot Rabbit high up in a tree (the dynamite must have caused Rabbit to fly up). Gopher tries to get Rabbit down, but he can’t use an ax or dynamite on the tree. Pooh was able to get Rabbit by saying hello to him which also causing Rabbit to let go of the branch he is hanging. Rabbit falls from the sky and also falls on Pooh. The next day, Pooh and his friends surprise Rabbit with his garden that they fix up and Rabbit apologizes to his friends for being such a selfish jerk from before. Pooh finds a Pogo stick in the woods and gives it to Rabbit as a gift. Rabbit jumps on it and also lets out a big kaboom (the Pogo stick is really a dynamite), which blows up Rabbit's garden yet again.
