The Tigger Movie is a 2000 American animated musical comedy-drama film co-written and directed by Jun Falkenstein. Part of the Winnie-the-Pooh series, this film features Pooh's friend Tigger in his search for his family tree and other Tiggers like himself. As such, the story line may be viewed as an allegory about an adoptee's search to understand the meaning of family.

- The wonderful thing about tiggers / Is Tiggers are wonderful things / Their tops are made of rubber / Their bottoms are made of springs / They're bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy fun, fun, fun, fun, fun / But the most wonderful thing about tiggers is I'm the only one / That's why I repeat and repeat / The wonderful thing about tiggers / Is tiggers are marvellous chaps / They're loaded with vim and with vigor / They love to leap in your laps / They're jumpy, bumpy, clumpy, pumpy fun, fun, fun, fun, fun / But the most wonderful thing about tiggers is I'm the only one / I'm the only...

- Maybe this belonged to my uncle! [pulls out an apple core]
- Roo: What is this doo-hickey?

- Kanga: ...dress warmly...

- Piglet: ...stay safe and sound...
- Eeyore: ...keep smiling...

- The Narrator:
Now, this might be the room of any small boy,
but it happens to belong to a boy named Christopher Robin.
And, like most small boys,
Christopher Robin had toy animals to play with.
And together they had many remarkable adventures...
in an enchanted place...
called the Hundred Acre Wood.
But of all his animal friends,
Christopher Robin 's Very best friend...
was a bear called Winnie the Pooh.
- The Narrator:Well, then, Tigger, who should this story be about?
- The Narrator:But the title already says Winnie the Pooh.
- The Narrator:And so began Tigger's grand search for his family tree. He searched high. He searched low. He searched near, and he searched far.
- The Narrator: At last, the day had come to an end, as days often will. And what had begun as a very exciting idea had changed to a rather discouraging one.
- The Narrator: And so, the next morning...
- The Narrator: Now, Tigger was so enormously excited that his friends couldn't help but feel, well, a bit concerned.
- The Narrator: Tigger was so very excited and had so very many things to do. He heard very little of what anyone else was saying. But as it so happened, none of his friends had the heart to tell Tigger very much of anything anyway.
