Piglet is a fictional character from A. A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh books. Piglet is a baby pig who is the best friend of Winnie-the-Pooh. Despite the fact that he is a “Very Small Animal” with a generally timid disposition, he often conquers his fears and seems to want to be brave.

Like most of the Pooh characters, Piglet was based on one of Christopher Robin Milne’s stuffed animals. In the original color versions of Ernest H. Shepard’s illustrations in the Winnie-the-Pooh books, Piglet has pale pink skin and a green jumper. He is the second shortest of the animals, with only Roo being slightly smaller (although they are close enough in size that Kanga cannot tell the difference when Piglet jumps in her pouch instead of Roo). His voice is described as “squeaky”.

Although featured in every Disney interpretation of Winnie-the-Pooh, Piglet was originally omitted by Disney in the first Pooh film, Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree (1966). According to the film’s director, Wolfgang Reitherman, Piglet was replaced by Gopher, which was thought to have a more “folksy, all-American, grass-roots image”.[1]

Many familiar with the classic Milne books protested Disney’s decision to exclude Piglet, and Disney relented. Piglet appearein the next Pooh film, Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day (1968). John Fiedler provided the voice for Piglet from 1968 until his death on June 25, 2005 (his last appearance as Piglet’s voice was in Pooh’s Heffalump Halloween Movie).

Travis Oates has provided Piglet’s voice since Fielder’s death. He has voiced Piglet in Kingdom Hearts II, Pooh’s Heffalump Halloween Movie (only for the newest material since much of the dialogue is still voiced by Fielder[2]) and the My Friends Tigger & Pooh television series.

Disney’s interpretation of Piglet has pink skin and a magenta jumper.

Piglet can be found at the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts for meet and greets. He appears less frequently than Pooh, Tigger, and Eeyore, but he is more common than the rare Rabbit. He also made a brief cameo in the 1988 movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit, seen as the silhouette hanging onto the last car of a passing high-speed train that runs over the Dip truck in Toontown.

Piglet was featured as one of the guests in House of Mouse. It was one of John Fielder’s last works before his death.
