The Doctor stood at the controls of the TARDIS, listening to the gentle hum. Until the screen showed him that the ship landed.
"Sarah Jane! I believe that it is safe for us to leave the confines of this ship now!" he called to his ever-faithful companion.
"We're not going to get into some kind of trouble again are we Doctor?" asked Sarah Jane as she walked from the adjacent room wearing her blue blouse and slacks.
"Oh, come now Sarah Jane, what kind of adventure would one have if there wasn't at least a little bit of danger?" The Doctor replied with a smile as he put his hat upon his head. Then they left the TARDIS. Outside was a peaceful looking forest. The sun was shining brightly, the trees themselves looked as though they might give someone a hug, it felt so friendly in the air.
"Well, this doesn't look bad at all," observed Sarah Jane.
"If there's one thing I've learned in my travels is not to be fooled by appearances," the Doctor told her. Then out of the corner of his eye's he thought he saw something move. He looked in the direction of the movement but saw nothing there.
"What is it Doctor?" asked Sarah Jane.
"I could have sworn I saw something moving through the trees," he replied. Then they both heard some kind of bouncing noise. They looked around rapidly, trying to get a glimpse of whatever creature could possibly be trying to spring up on them. If that was the creature's intent, and if it were, it was doing remarkably well in stealth mode.
"If you have the ability to speak, do it now! I give you my word we will not harm you!" the Doctor demanded.
"BOO!" said a voice from behind them. The Doctor and Sarah Jane jumped a few feet in the air and looked immediately behind them. There standing behind them was a creature that looked like a miniature tiger, standing upright on its hind legs without any difficulty!
"Well, you're a feisty little one, what's your name?" asked Sarah Jane, laughing.
"Name's Tigger! T-I-double-guh-er! That spells Tigger!" the creature replied.
"Well Tigger, this is my companion Sarah Jane, and I'm the Doctor," the Doctor introduced himself and his companion.
"It's a pleasure to meet the both of you! Would you care to come with me?" Tigger replied gleefully. The Doctor and Sarah Jane nodded and followed him. It wasn't exactly easy, considering the fact that Tigger was constantly bouncing an and off the trees. Eventually, they came to a clearing where they saw one single tree that had a door at the base that read: "Mr. Sanders." Tigger stopped at the door and knocked.
The door opened and right in the doorway the two travelers saw a yellow bear wearing a red T-shirt. Tigger jumped right on him saying: "Hey there Buddy Bear! I just met some new friends in the forest!"
"Oh, well, that's very nice Tigger. But do you think you could give me a chance to stand up. I believe it is customary that one stands up when meeting somebody new," replied the bear. Tigger got off the bear, helped him up and then practically dragged him over to the two companions.
"Well hello there, I'm the Doctor and this is my companion Sarah Jane Smith."
"Oh, hello there. I'm Winnie the Pooh. It is a pleasure to meet you Sarah Jane Smith. And you too, uh, Doctor Who?" asked the bear.
"Just the Doctor thank you." All of a sudden, Sarah Jane made a rather 'oomph'-type sound, everyone turned around to see a donkey had just walked right into her.
"Sorry, didn't see you there. Then again, nobody really see's me very much. Guess you now know how I feel half the time," he said in a gloomy voice.
"Hello Eeyore, these are our new friends, the Doctor and Sarah Jane," said Pooh. Sarah Jane bent down and gently stroked Eeyore's mane.
"You seem a tad down in the dumps, maybe there's something we can do to cheer you up?" she asked the depressed creature.
"I honestly don't know," Eeyore replied. The Doctor reached into a pocket on his jacket and pulled out a small bag.
"Here old chum, why don't you have a jelly baby, I think you could use one," he said. He gently placed a few into Eeyore's mouth before handing some to Tigger and Pooh. Pooh appeared a little hesitant to try them but he popped them in. Tigger and Eeyore appeared to love them.
