June 9, 2023

Are you on the hunt for the best Tigger quotes that’ll have you bouncing up and down like our favorite Winnie the Pooh star? Join me as I run through Tigger’s most iconic sayings over the years (including the most recent Christopher Robin movie!).

Tigger is one of Disney’s most famous faces, but he started his life as an illustration in A.A Milne’s iconic Winnie the Pooh series!

Not only is he up there with the most loveable members of the Hundred Acre Wood, but he says some QUITE amusing things.

It doesn’t matter whether he’s boasting about bouncing, joking around with Pooh, or trying to cheer up Eeyore. This wonderful tiger toy always has a few tricks up his sleeve.

If you can’t get enough of Tigger, then you’re in luck.

I’ve rounded up a list of the absolute BEST Tigger quotes that’ll make you say “hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo!”. From amusing lines to moving speeches, this list has it all.

Now let’s bounce (literally!).

Who is Tigger?

If you’re not 100% sure who Tigger actually IS, then let me quickly fill you in.

Tigger isn’t a real tiger, but he’s an anthropomorphic stuffed tiger owned by the child Christopher Robin.

It’s said that he was based on one of author A.A Milne’s stuffed animals, which gives him a slightly worn-in, loved feel.

In terms of his appearance, Tigger is super distinctive with his black and orange stripes, long chin, and long tail.

Which he uses for bouncing, of course!

If you’re looking for his official description, it’s right here:

“What a strange looking creature! Mmm… look at those beady little eyes. And that preposterous chin. And those Ricky-Tickin Striped pajamas.” ―Tigger on his reflection.

Although he first burst onto the scene in a 1928 book, Tigger’s first TV appearance was in Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day in 1968.

Since then, he’s been one of the best-loved characters in the Winnie the Pooh universe!

Tigger has been voiced by an impressive range of voice actors, and these include:

  • Paul Winchell
  • Sam Edwards
  • Hal Smith
  • Will Ryan
  • Jim Cummings
  • Ed Gilbert
  • Marc Silk

Now that’s a LOT of Tiggers.

What is Tigger’s Personality?

There’s no denying that Tigger is the most energetic and eccentric character in Winnie the Pooh.

And when you compare him to the rather docile Rabbit, Pooh, and Eeyore, his vibramt personality is even more obvious!

Although Tigger is 100% lovable and friendly, he can be a complete troublemaker and causes major chaos for his friends.

For example, he even takes important papers from Christopher Robin’s briefcase and replaces them with toys and trinkets.

It’s all to remind him of the folks back in Hundred Acre Wood, but it’s hardly practical and is super problematic!

But for all his faults, Tigger’s giant ego remains uber-loveable.

If you want to catch Tigger in motion, you can catch him in the following movies and TV shows:

  • The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
  • Winnie the Pooh and a Day for Eeyore

What does Tigger say when he leaves?

When Tigger leaves his pals from One Hundred Acre Woods in The Tigger Movie, he says TTFN – Ta Ta Forever!

It’s one of the saddest moments in the entire Winnie the Pooh franchise, and it always brings a tear to my eye.

Yup – I’m a sucker for sad scenes.

What is Tigger’s catchphrase?

It sounds weird, but I’d say that Tigger’s catchphrase is less of an actual phrase and more of a series of noises!

He says “hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo!” when he’s ready to bounce (or is overly excited), and it’s definitely his catchphrase.

Other than that, I’d say Tigger is known for saying TTFN (Ta Ta for Now!).

What is Tigger famous for?

Tigger is a hilarious Tiger that’s best known for being full of energy and bouncing on his enormous tail.

I’m not sure quite how physically possible that would actually be, but it certainly gives this character a USP!

If we’re talking about appearances here, Tigger is known for his distinctive stripes (black and orange!), enormous eyes, and elongated chin.

It’s all part of what makes Tigger, Tigger!

What is Tigger short for?

Tigger isn’t short for anything! His full name is just that – Tigger.

What kind of ADHD does Tigger have?

There’s always been a bunch of speculation about Tigger having ADHD, and he even confirms it through quotes!

As Tigger is incredibly energetic and bouncy, he’d 100% have the hyperactive type of ADHD.

Not only is this defined by its boundless energy, but it’s also an impulsive condition that brings quite a bit of stress to those with ADHD.

I’ll also say that Tigger’s lack of fear, his constant interrupting, and his restlessness are ADHD markers!

Is Tigger always happy?

Tigger is almost always optimistic and mischievous, but he does get upset from time to time.

He’s particularly sad during The Tigger Movie when he walks out on his friends after thinking they’ve played a cruel joke on him.

They haven’t, but he takes the action extremely personally.

How old is Tigger?

Tigger is said to be around 20 years old (which is probably a bit older than you’d expect!).

But if we’re going based on the character’s actual birth date, we can say that Tigger is coming up on 100 years old!

And that’s because he was born in October 1928 when The House on Pooh Corner was published (AKA: his first appearance!).

What is Tigger afraid of?

It might surprise you, but Tigger is actually afraid of heights!

Although he confidently bounces up a tree, he needs Rabbit, Pooh, Piglet, Kanga, and Christopher Robin to get him down.

Ah, Tigger.

How did Tigger lose his stripes?

If you’re not that well-versed in Winnie the Pooh lore, you might not know that Tigger’s stripes vanish during Stripes/Monkey See, Monkey Do Better which aired in 1991!

During this episode, Tigger takes a bath and loses his stripes!

Don’t worry, he gets them back.

Does Tigger ever find his family?

Although Tigger sets out to find his family in The Tigger Movie, he never finds any other Tiggers on hi search.

But eventually, he realizes that his actual family are the wonderful animals from the Hundred Acre Wood!

So, it’s a happy ending after all.
