DescriptionThe New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh "Tigger is the Mother of Invention" Pan Master Background (Walt Disney, c. 1988). "The name's Tigger! T-I-double-guh-ER! That spells Tigger!" Tigger's treehouse is the star of this fantastic pan size background. It is sort of a clubhouse that is built on top of a tree, with a tire swing and a moat surrounding the fort. Tigger's house is frequently visited by Pooh and his friends. It is revealed in the episode "Tigger's Houseguest" that he harbors a tiny visitor in a small matchbox that turns out to be a termite, according to Rabbit, but Tigger merely calls it "a yellow-bellied housefly." This piece is seen multiple times throughout the episode which initially aired on 10/27/90. In the episode, Tigger vows to invent some stupendous thing! After inventing all winter, spring, summer and fall Tigger announces that his invention has been invented. Unfortunately, Tigger's invention seems to do more harm than good. This impressive background was painted on 32" x 11" background board with a cel overlay as usual on Winnie the Pooh backgrounds. Included is a Certificate of Authenticity issued by Disney. A "must-have" for fans of Pooh's "bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy" friend, Tigger. On Disney+, this episode's title card reads "Tigger is the Mother of All Invention". Background shows edge wear from production handling. Overall condition is Very Good.
