The episode begins in a late afternoon, Pooh, Piglet, Rabbit, Tigger and Owl are all playing on the swing. The only ones not there are Eeyore, who is just watching, and Gopher, who pops out in his pajamas complaining about the noise and saying that it is too late and they should all be sleeping. Upon hearing this, Tigger stops the swing abruptly, causing everyone else to fall, Especially Gopher, and enthusiastically states that they must go to bed early in order to wake up early in the next morning and play more. The others follow him, and when Piglet withdraws a little, Tigger tells him that he wouldn’t want to stay awake in the night anyway, as there are monsters in the forest. This promptly convinces Piglet to run to his house and go to bed.
Deep in the windy night, the forest seems to be full of strange howls and shadows appearing on the windows. Piglet is scared and hides inside a pillow case, alleviated by the fact that now he won’t be able to see the ghosts. Tigger realizes the problem is not keeping Eeyore on the swing, so he decides to build an improvised parachute for Eeyore. This actually works. The Episode ends with Pooh and the gang on a Parachute.
