Piglet The sweet, diminutive pig is the best friend of A.A. Milnes beloved honey-crazed bear Winnie. A Very Small Animal who is often timid, Piglet strives to conquer his fears. Disney brought the gang to life in 1966 in Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree. Piglet , though, was replaced in the film by a character named Gopher. After a wave of protests, Piglet arrived with pink skin wearing a pink jumper in the 1968 classic, Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day, voiced to perfection by the high-pitched raspy actor John Fiedler. Piglet has proved to be so popular, he even headlined his own feature, 2003s Piglets Big Movie. Fiedler was the voice of Piglet until his death in 2005, when Travis Oates took over.
