| Spoiler warning: The following contains plot details about|
the entire movie.
It's now snowing and Roo wants to go play. Kanga can't be with him so she calls on Tigger to look after Roo which he gladly accepts. Bouncing around the woods with Roo on his back, Tigger accidentally jumps too high up a tree and is too scared to get down. He calls for help and Pooh Bear and Piglet come to the scene. Roo successfully jumps down but Tigger refuses to follow suit. Soon Christopher Robin, Rabbit and Kanga arrive and try to convince Tigger to jump. Eventually, Rabbit decides that the group would just have to leave Tigger in the tree forever, on which Tigger promises never to bounce again if he ever was released from his predicament. Christopher Plummer chimes in for help. Tigger begs Plummer to "narrate [him] down from [the tree]," and Plummer tilts the book, allowing Tigger to step onto the text of the page. Tigger starts to feel better that he made it this far and before he can do otherwise, Plummer tilts the book again causing Tigger to fall down into the snow. Happy, Tigger attempts to bounce but Rabbit stops him reminding Tigger of the promise he made. Devastated, Tigger slowly walks away and Rabbit feels better that there will be peace. But everyone else is sad to see Tigger like this and remind Rabbit of the joy Tigger brought when he was bouncing. Suddenly, Rabbit feels sorry for Tigger and takes back the promise he made and is given a friendly tackle by an overly-excited Tigger. Tigger invites everyone to bounce with him and even teaches Rabbit how to do it. For the first time, Rabbit is happy to be bouncing, as is everyone else and Tigger sings his trademark song for the final time.
The film's plot is based primarily on three A. A. Milne stories: "In which Tigger is unbounced" (Chapter VII from The House at Pooh Corner), "In which it is shown that Tiggers don't climb trees" (Chapter IV from The House at Pooh Corner), and "In which Pooh & Piglet Go Hunting and Nearly Catch a Woozle" (Chapter III of Winnie the Pooh).
