April Pooh is the second segment of the sixth episode of the third season of The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. It first aired on ABC on October 13, 1990.

Synopsis

It’s April Fools Day and the supposed April Fool gives Pooh glue for honey, Piglet fishbowls against his windows, Tigger spotted pajamas and Rabbit a giant carrot balloon. Now to search for this April Fool.

Plot

Winnie the Pooh is in bed and dreaming of Honey! However when he wakes up, his honey pot is empty - his dream must have had a midnight snack without him. However he has no honey in his cupboard. There’s a pot of honey on his table, but the ’honey’ is gray and very, very sticky. There’s lots of pots of honey outside his house.

“April Fool” calls Christopher Robin. Pooh wonders if this April Fool is someone to be afraid of or not. Piglet calls for help. Piglet has goggles and a floater on and towels. He’s terrified that his place is underwater, but his floor is not wet. However at Piglet’s windows, goldfishes are seen swimming. Maybe the flood is hiding somewhere. Pooh finds out that it’s a trick. Pooh tells him that this April Fool likes to play tricks and this is his day.

They look for the April Fool at Tigger’s House. However Tigger has got spots. His beautiful stripe-dies, nowhere to be seen, but Pooh notices it’s a PJ suit. Rabbit goes into his garden and sees and enormous carrot and is pleased with himself, but it’s a large balloon, and Rabbit floats up into the sky, when the carrot bursts and he demands to know what’s going on and wonder why no one’s seen the April Fool.

They’re disguised as trees to find the “invisible” April Fool. and they scare Eeyore on the process. He thinks they’ve been turned into stumps, but they tell him they’re pretending. They try to trap the Fool by setting Tigger traps around Eeyore's house with a pretend Eeyore. Someone’s coming. He comes behind them, but it's only Christopher Robin. They’ve trapped themselves and accidentally trap him. They tell Christopher Robin that they’re scared of the April Fool. Christopher Robin tells them that he was the one doing the April Fooling, though the tricks weren’t meant to frighten. Honey for Pooh, gentle pets for Piglet, cuddly pajamas for Tigger and a balloon for Rabbit. But they played the best trick on Christopher Robin, so they’re the April Fools.
