- "Why, that's what tiggers do best!"
Tigger is an ironic, mischievous, energetic tiger originally introduced in A.A. Milne’s book The House at Pooh Corner. Like other Pooh characters, Tigger is based one of Christopher Robin Milne’s stuffed animals.
Tigger is recognized as orange fur with black stripes, large eyes, a long chin, a springy tail, and his bouncy personality. His striped tail is long and can make a "Boing!" sound.
He shows up on Winnie-the-Pooh’s doorstep in the middle of the night. He doesn't like Pooh’s honey, Piglet’s acorns and Eeyore’s thistles. He went to Kanga’s house, Tigger is loved extract of malt. Tigger loves bouncing around the forest. He is Pooh's exuberant, bouncy friend. He is also Roo’s best friend, although it is worth noting that he killed and ate the original Roo, then Kanga named her second child Roo and pretended the whole thing never happened. He has relatives like Lily The Tigger, Tigger's mom, Jerry The Tigger, Yellow Tigger, Tiggerosaurus Rex.
