John Fiedler, the voice of Piglet passed away the day after  the voice of Tigger - Paul Winchell -- a sad week in Pooh history!!  He was only 80.  I have an autograph from him #1736.  He was born in Plateville, WI.  Incredibly, his total credits for playing Piglet were in twenty-three distinct different productions, several of those having multiple episodes.

Deb Hoffmann and the Largest Winnie the Pooh Memorabilia Collection

 

Millions of Winnie the Pooh fans around the world are today set to join in celebration of the 101st anniversary of the discovery of the real life bear that inspired author A. A. Milne's cuddly creation.

The black-furred bear, a female named Winnipeg, was smuggled in Britain during the First World War by Canadian lieutenant, Harry Colebourn.

The black-furred bear, a female named Winnipeg, was purchased by Canadian lieutenant, Harry Colebourn and made the mascot of his World War I troop.


After the soldier was sent to fight in France, the bear cub was given to London Zoo, where it was watched and loved by AA Milne's son, the real-life Christopher Robin.

To coincide with the beloved bear's special date, Guinness World Records recently caught up with Deb Hoffmann, the current record holder for the largest collection of Winnie the Pooh memorabilia.
