Pooh, about to awaken Kermit the Clock in Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue

Winnie the Pooh was first created by A. A. Milne in 1926 but rose to international recognition with the release of the Disney animated featurettes of the 1960s. When performing "Cottleston Pie" on The Muppet Show, Rowlf the Dog referred to it as a tune that Winnie the Pooh sang "when his brain felt fluffy." He also mentioned that he used to read Winnie the Pooh stories when he was a puppy.

The animated Disney versions of Pooh Bear and Tigger appeared with the Muppet Babies in the 1990 animated television special Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue. Jim Cummings provided the voices of both characters. In the Muppet Babies episode "Gonzee's Playhouse Channel", Baby Piggy appeared in a parody called "Piggy the Pooh", while Baby Bean Bunny portrayed roles similar to Tigger and Eeyore.

In 2001, Bear in the Big Blue House creator Mitchell Kriegman helmed a new Winnie the Pooh series involving Bunraku-style puppetry combined with digital backgrounds. The new series, titled The Book of Pooh and produced outside of Jim Henson Productions, used most of the same voices as the animated version but with many Muppet alumni puppeteering the characters, and other crew hold-overs. Both Bear in the Big Blue House and Book of Pooh were shown in the Playhouse Disney block of programming on The Disney Channel. Characters from both shows also share the stage in Playhouse Disney: Live on Stage at Disney's Hollywood Studios.
