Tigger is an energetic and silly anthropomorphic tiger originally introduced in Disney's 1968 short film Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day, and originated in A.A. Milne's book The House at Pooh Corner.
Tigger is easily recognized by his orange fur with black stripes, large beady eyes, long chin, springy tail and his bouncy personality. As he says himself, "Bouncing is what Tiggers do best." He is very confident and has quite an ego, he often thinks of himself as being handsome and some of his other comments suggest that he has a high opinion of himself. Also, he often undertakes tasks with gusto and pride, only to later realize that they weren't as easy as he had originally imagined and he usually takes what he hears literally- such as thinking manners are literally magical words to thinking a family tree is an actual tree. While Tigger has a tendency to recklessly bounce people as a way of introduction and being a little inconsiderate, he doesn't seem to act this way with Kanga. Instead he is very respectful to her, referring to her as Mrs. Kanga.
When Pooh met Tigger in the book, he had trouble finding food that Tigger would eat - however the problem was soon solved when Tigger tasted extract of malt, which Kanga gave to Roo as medicine. Tigger is also known to hate honey unlike his friend Winnie-the-Pooh. An interesting quirk about Tigger is that, according to his theme song, the most wonderful thing about Tiggers is he's the only one. This song leads to his search for his family in The Tigger Movie. Tigger is also known for his tendency to mispronounce various words. [Source: wikia]
