Music Monday: The Wonderful Thing about Tiggers

In 1968, Walt Disney Productions released Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day as an animated short based on the stories of Winnie the Pooh from author A.A. Milne.  This particular production is significant because it was the last animated short that was produced by Walt Disney. Walt would never see the final piece as he died in 1966. This short would go on to win an Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film (1968).

This short film is where we meet the energetic character, Tigger. He introduces himself to Pooh with his signature song, "The Wonderful Thing about Tiggers." Written by Disney Legends Richard Sherman and Robert Sherman, this song wonderfully describes who Tigger is. Even the sheet music has a note to play "With a bounce."

One of my favorite lines that also says all there is to know about Tigger is: "But the most wonderful thing about tiggers is I'm the only one!"

Happy Music Monday!
