Winnie-the-Pooh | Characters

Character Description
Winnie-the-Pooh The stout, stuffed bear Winnie-the-Pooh, also referred to as Pooh, relishes little more than a pot of honey, for he has a big appetite and is always ready for another snack. He hums along from adventure to adventure, kindhearted, a little daft, and very lovable. Read More
Christopher Robin Levelheaded and kind, Christopher Robin is the little boy in the stories and whose toy animals are the other characters. Read More
Piglet Anxious, small, prone to second-guessing himself, yet determined to be brave, Piglet is often at Winnie-the-Pooh's side. He is Winnie-the-Pooh's right-hand pig. Read More
Eeyore Inclined to be melancholy, Eeyore is a gray donkey, older but not wiser, than the other inhabitants of the Hundred Acre Wood. Read More
Rabbit Rabbit is brisk and bossy, rather a bit of a know-it-all. He does not admit to being wrong, nor does he suffer fools silently. Read More
Heffalump A large, supposedly fierce, creature resembling an elephant, the Heffalump does not appear in the stories; the creature is the target of an imaginary hunt and the subject of Piglet's nightmare.
Kanga Defined mostly as a protective mother, Kanga, a stuffed toy kangaroo, is not above playing a joke on Piglet, Pooh, and Rabbit. She is even-tempered and coolheaded, aiding Winnie-the-Pooh in saving her beloved Roo when he falls into the water.
Narrator The author and Christopher Robin's father in reality, the narrator explains Winnie-the-Pooh's origins and tells Pooh stories to Christopher Robin, occasionally interjecting as himself.
Owl Fond of big words, Owl is the most learned of the animals in the Hundred Acre Wood, although readers see he cannot spell his name correctly. Pompous yet lovable, he believes himself a writer, judge, and wise bird, but he can be boring despite being a font of knowledge, some of it invented, and acts as a scribe and reader.
Roo The charming, curious, and fearless baby kangaroo, Roo, like very young children, gets himself into situations that scare his mother but faze him little. He is the youngest inhabitant of the Hundred Acre Wood.
