Winnie the Pooh

Voice Compare » Winnie the Pooh » Tigger

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Tigger with sound clips and images.
Tigger is an anthropomorphic tiger who loves bouncing, claiming it is "what Tiggers do best". He is overconfident and egotistical and claims to be the only one of his kind. He claims to like everything, only to find that he does not like honey or anything in Kanga's medicine cabinet.

I've been Curious as to how Jim Cummings was hired to voice Tigger alongside Pooh Bear (he can copy more voices than Holloway has). But Paul Winchell did return for some occasions, like being the only one with the Featurettes in Winnie the Pooh's Grand Adventure.

@CuriousUserX90 Well, Wiley207 sort of had an answer to that below.

Wow, Carl Harms was actually worse than Will Ryan as this character!

I think Jim Cummings played Tigger best. followed by Paul Winchell.

Compared to Rabbit and Eeyore, Carl doesn't sound as bad.

I know most people hate Will I thought he was okay, better than Hal Smith as Pooh, Ron Gans Eeyore and the super squeaky Piglet on the same show

Jim started out very annoying but he got better but I'm keeping Paul as my vote

1 Paul
2 Jim
3 Will
4 Carl

@HienFan Apparently the guy who voiced super squeaky Piglet was Will's comedy/music parter. His name is Phil Baron just in case you were wondering.

You can't top Paul, though Jim was the perfect understudy and later replacement, and I applaud him for stepping up to take over for Paul, can't be easy shoes to fill.

Yeah Carl is straight up not the character. On his own merits his voice is generic, heck of the two poeple talking I had a hard time picking out who was Tigger. When compares to the others he clearly lacks the energy or charm

Oh and I vote for Jim, he seems to have more energy and just seems like he's having a blast
said at 3:38 PM on Sat Jun 21 2014
Since Carl predates Disney's there was nothing memorable, and he had nothing to really go with. It's ok, sounds a bit energetic but Disney did it better a few years later.

@pete 10 years, thought it was 1963 he debuted not 1968. My bad.

Carl is my least favourite now since he just sounds so boring.
said at 3:36 PM on Tue Apr 15 2014
I got to say I like Paul's a lot, but Jim comes at a second for me.

I don't need to talk about Will, though he did do a good tigger laugh

Jim just owns the role

Paul was the original and still holds up nicely ll give him credit,he does a decent job at goign Tiggers signature hootty

I will give credit to Jim that he sounds better than Paul, once Paul got really scratchy in the late 80s

Still prefer Paul's take on the earlier episodes of New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh though
said at 2:33 PM on Tue Nov 5 2013
Jim Cummings- AWESOME!!! He has the perfect natural voice for this, and has the most personality in the role than any other voice actor.

Paul Winchell- The original voice actor... though he's not as, well, kid-friendly, he still suits the role.

Will Ryan- I don't get it.

Paul Winchell owned the role and I don't think he can ever really be topped. Jim Cummings, however, does an excellent job filling in for him after his retirement and death. Will Ryan...sounds like Mr. Dink from "Doug", not Tigger.
said at 5:32 PM on Mon Jul 15 2013
Oh tough 1 really cause I like Jim & Paul really cause they are both amazing. Well how about we look at it in best performance really.

Paul was really good in Winnie the Pooh & Tigger too cause it was like all about Tigger as was Jim's best film as Tigger in The Tigger Movie which makes both actors just big stars really.

So in the end i'm going 2 go with Jim as I've heard him so many times as Tigger. Jim voiced Tigger in seasons 3 & 4 of TNAOWTP and then returned in 1996 for Boo to You Too and finally voiced Tigger full time since the late 1999. Paul however retired from voice acting in early 1999 and died the day before Piglet actor John Fiedler in 2005 which I thought was insane.

Will however just isn't Tigger unlike the other 2.

Wichell made the role memorable and without him we probably wouldn't have such a memorable performance and one of my favorite animated characters

Winchell is of course the best, but Cummings is a close second. Both of them bring the character to life in a great way. Ryan is pretty good, too, but still isn't as good as the first two. Once again, I like all of them!
said at 2:42 PM on Mon May 14 2012
wow Jim Cummings does Tigger too as well as Pooh? wow. I go with cummings. He voiced Tigger for about the last decade right? That is probably I prefer her most as I am so young. Paul Winchell is great though too!
said at 6:21 AM on Tue Jun 10 2014
@dreamer Jim Cummings first began voicing Tigger regularly around 1990, in the later episodes of "The New Adventures of Winnie-the-Pooh." It was cheaper for Disney to have him as Tigger at the time instead of Paul Winchell, who they usually reserved for special projects (like "Pooh's Grand Adventure" and some of the holiday specials).Paul Winchell was going to voice him in "The Tigger Movie," but he got too old to do the voice really well, so they went with Cummings.

I gotta go with my dad on this one: Winchell was obviously the best Tigger. The energy and the way he seemed to get ahead of himself was just PRICELESS.

Cummings doesn't do bad, but you CAN kinda tell that it's him if you've heard a lot of his roles.

Ryan I won't listen to for fear of getting something utterly dreadful...
said at 1:13 PM on Sat Jan 14 2012
@Sarge Ray You should listen to it! Its suprisingly good as tigger and on its own in my own personal opinion!
said at 2:49 PM on Mon Oct 7 2013
@Sarge Ray If you've seen "Doug" and know Mr. Dink, then that's pretty much how Will Ryan's Tigger sounds like.

Cummings gives Tigger his energy.

@aaronalvin Really? I've always thought Winchell was better.
said at 7:18 AM on Fri Oct 14 2011
@Zummi Winchell was good up until the 90's when his voice became very scratchy then he had to retire
said at 9:59 AM on Fri Feb 3 2012
@MatthewC17 I see,well no matter what winchell will always be the best tigger! But I agree that he retired coz he was too old,but what I can't stand is that Winchell didn't voice tigger between 1991-97 So,I always feel that he has some unfinished business.
said at 12:16 PM on Sat Feb 18 2012
@Zummi I will admit Paul was the perfect Zummi Gummi voice
From what I heard Jim's Zummi voice is a copy of Tigger's voice
said at 9:49 PM on Sat Mar 10 2012
@MatthewC17 Agreed,I think that's also because Jim's voice sounds to young for Zummi.
said at 9:54 AM on Wed Jul 13 2011
Jim Cummings seems to make Tigger sound more hyper-active
but, never the less he is the worthy successor for Paul Winchell
