Has Tig gone NUTS?

By jdclyde ·
I think back to the times that I have DARED to tease Tig about one thing or another, and it gives me a cold chill to read the headlines! Wow, have I been playing with fire!

Tig, I humbly take back EVERYTHING I have ever said that was anything short of singing your praise!

From everything I am hearing

by Tig2 In reply to Has Tig gone NUTS?

This may be another case of "wardrobe malfunction".

The case in 2004 where it was alleged that the character had inappropriately touched a 13 or 14 year old girl was proven to be an error. The gloves to the costume are overstuffed and frankly, I can tell you from experience that you literally can feel nothing while wearing them. One of the first things you learn is to tightly control your movements. From what I have heard, the character simply was not controlling the costume.

The way I dealt with that situation was to let people touch me, not the other way around. Little kids are annoyingly short and difficult to see in the mask. If I waited, they would interact with me and let me know where the safe field was.

A note of caution here, JD- before the smart aleck comments begin- when I am wearing an 80 pound furry costume, you may get away with touching. But never forget, I have a handler of my own!

The thing that is so hurtful is that the character should be separate from the action. "Tigger" did not do anything. The actor did.

However, JD, it is my considered opinion that you should continue to be VERY afraid...

I can see how

80 lbs of furry costume (in 90+ Degree F heat) would be unwieldy to say the least. I say we have the kids' parents try on the costume and then try to give their kiddo a big ole hug. Make em walk a mile in Tigger's big furry shoes...

Jessie, you are reading my mind!

by Tig2 In reply to I can see how

The only flaw in that plan is that you have to be a certain height and stature to wear the darned thing. Most folk don't qualify. Heck, I wouldn't qualify any more- I don't have the agility or stamina that I had many years ago.

But I agree- let the average Joe try doing that. They find out very quickly that you can't see much, you can't feel much, and you have no fine motor skills.

Actually it looks more like a money grubbing exercise

The kid only complained to it's parents once they got out of the park and they where filming the entire incident and thought nothing of it at the time.

Lets sue Disney or sell your story to Jerry Springer and make money.

Better still if you manage to do both you'll just be that much richer and no one suffers in the minds of the money grubbing slime balls who start the complaints.

UM JD have you looked up yet?

Tiggers like to bounce and the higher that they get the harder they can hit the ground and anyone silly enough to be in the way and then bounce higher.

I knew that my nephews would be good for something they love to watch Winne the Pooh in the afternoon and I get to watch it with them on a few occasions.
