Disney Channel orders more ‘Pooh’

'Tigger' is tots' top-rated TV show

Sweet news for honey-loving Winnie the Pooh: Disney Channel has picked up a second season of its new preschool entry “My Friends Tigger & Pooh.”

The first-ever computer-generated Winnie the Pooh series (coming on the heels of Disney Channel’s hit CG entry “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse”), “My Friends Tigger & Pooh” launched last month to strong results among the potty-training set.

The half-hour airs during Disney Channel’s Preschool Disney block. Since its bow, “My Friends Tigger & Pooh” has ranked No. 1 among all TV shows in kids 2-5 (with a 5.2 rating). Show also ranks tops among kid series with women 18-49 (0.7 rating), according to the network.

“From day one, ‘My Friends Tigger & Pooh’ resonated with our audience, and we were able to introduce a new generation of preschoolers to these lovable characters,” said Nancy Kanter, senior VP of original programming at Disney Channel. “We hope to continue to create fun-filled storylines that help encourage young minds to think, share and learn the importance of teamwork, community and friendship.”

The show focuses on the classic A.A. Milne characters of Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, Eeyore and others, but adds a young girl to the mix — the curious 6-year-old Darby — replacing traditional character Christopher Robin. Tigger, Pooh and Darby make up the “Super Sleuths,” who stress thinking skills to solve problems.

“My Friends Tigger & Pooh” has also started to launch internationally. The series is now airing in France and started running this week in Canada.

Brian Hohlfeld exec produces “My Friends Tigger & Pooh,” which comes from Walt Disney Television Animation. Show airs weekends at 10 a.m.
