Heffalumps were first mentioned in the original Winnie-the-Pooh books. They appeared in a nightmare sequence (along with their fellow scary creatures, the woozles) in 1968's "Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day." Even though heffalumps and woozles have appeared in other Disney Pooh media (such as the "New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" TV show), this was the first theatrical film to feature a "real" heffalump. Lumpy's design is similar to the heffalumps seen in the 1968 featurette and the song "The Horribly Hazardous Heffalumps!" is in the same style as "Heffalumps and Woozles" from "Blustery Day." More than 900 children (most of them actors) auditioned in the U.S. for the voice of Lumpy. Soon thereafter, auditions were held in the U.K and on that day, the team found their Lumpy in five-year-old Kyle Stanger, who had never acted before. Songwriter and recording artist Carly Simon helped come up with Lumpy's full name: Heffridge Trumpler Brompet Heffalump, IV. Simon also sings on the soundtrack and wrote some new songs for the film. According to the team, she became very passionate about the story during production. A Heffalump's favorite food: Cookies called rumple-doodles. Heffalump is the first in the Pooh series in which Winnie the Pooh narrates. For the first time, Roo plays the big lead. This was the final theatrically released film to feature voice actor John Fiedler as Piglet. Fiedler died in 2005.
