Tigger and Piglet Dead; Pooh Sought For Questioning

In side by side obituaries in today's NYT, I learned that both the "Voice of Pooh's Tigger," and the "Voice of Pooh's Piglet," had died over the weekend. A sad day in Hundred Acre Wood, indeed. Sadder still, though, is that the actor, John Fiedler, was actually referred to as "Pooh's Piglet" in his obituary's headline. Could have been worse, he could have been "Love Boat's Gopher," but still...

But as a namesake of Pooh's pal, Christopher Robin, must admit I'd always felt an affinity for the stories of that hapless bear who'd consistently get his head caught in a jug of honey. (Although I related more to Pooh himself than to C. Robin.) Though try as I might to recall some of the adventures he'd had, I realized I couldn't remember a damn thing save for the head up the honey jar. Fortuntately, though, it was Google to the rescue! And for anyone else who's interested in reconnecting with a little Poohvia, this website will undoubtedly answer your questions.

So rest in peace, Tigger and Piglet. I hope to see you again in that great honey jug in the sky.

Oh no, just because the voice is gone so are Tigger & P'let? You're *so* silly sometimes!

Yep, that's the way it goes, kid...

Replacement voices (and I say this at the risk of angering the mighty voice actors union) are NEVER as good. Why as a child I was practically scarred, scarred I tell you, when they hired some scab to fill the shoes of George Jetson. The show became a Blade Runneresque future-dystopia that I could not abide.
