"And a piglet's not brave, it's true, but if he has friends like you, he might ride upon a wish on a star. And so you see I'm proud to be what piglets are."
—Piglet in "What Piglets Are"

Piglet is Winnie the Pooh's best friend. He's been often called a "very small animal" who loves acorns and helping his friends. He's timid and has many fears, but he can be brave sometimes. In 2003, Piglet starred his own film, Piglet's Big Movie. Piglet was voiced by John Fiedler up until this actor's passing in 2005. Beginning with the series My Friends Tigger & Pooh, the role was filled by Travis Oates, who also provided the character's voice in the Kingdom Hearts series of games. Piglet lived in a beech tree, though in The House at Pooh Corner, Piglet ended up giving his house to Owl at Eeyore's suggestion, when Owl's house blew down. He then moved in with Pooh. In the Disney canon, this story was depicted in The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, though future releases have shown Piglet living in his own house.
