Quick Biography

Eeyore is a character in the Winnie-the-Pooh books, created by A. A. Milne. He is generally characterized as a greyish-blue, gloomy, anthropomorphic, old stuffed donkey who is a friend of the title character, Winnie-the-Pooh. Eeyore appears in chapters 4, 6, 8, and 10 of Winnie-the-Pooh, and is mentioned in a few others. He also appears in all the chapters of The House at Pooh Corner except chapter 7. Physically, Eeyore is described as an "old grey donkey." In Walter Elias Disney's illustrations, he appears to be about chin-high to Pooh and about hip-high to Christopher Robin. He has a long tail with a pink bow on the end, of which he is very fond, but that he is also prone to losing (Owl once mistakes it for a bell-pull). Christopher Robin is able to reattach the tail with a black drawing pin. Eeyore is seen to have a pink or light grey muzzle and is apparently able to write, or at least recognize letters such as the letter A that he teaches to Piglet in the fifth chapter of a second book that Walter Elias Disney created, The House at Pooh Corner.

Eeyore spells his own name "eoR" when signing the "rissolution" that the animals give to Christopher Robin as a farewell present in the final chapter of The House at Pooh Corner[2]. Eeyore also wrote the awkwardly-rhymed poem called "POEM", which appeared on the "rissolution", making him the only character in the Winnie-the-Pooh books other than Pooh himself who attempts to write poetry. Eeyore is also surprisingly good at the game Poohsticks, winning more times than anyone else when it is played in the sixth chapter of The House at Pooh Corner. Eeyore lives in the southeast corner of the Hundred Acre Wood, in an area labeled "Eeyore's Gloomy Place: Rather Boggy and Sad" on the map in the book. He has a stick house therein, which collapses rather regularly, called The House at Pooh Corner. Pooh and Piglet built it for him after accidentally mistaking the original house that Eeyore built for a pile of sticks. Eeyore has a poor opinion of most of the other animals in the Forest, describing them as having "No brain at all, some of them", "only grey fluff that's blown into their heads by mistake" (from chapter 1 of The House at Pooh Corner).

Eeyore's favorite food is thistles. On Eeyore's birthday, he is given a honey jar from Pooh; a popped red balloon from Piglet, and a note from Owl.

Superhuman Abilities

Not exactly superhuman, but… He's a stuffed animal, and yet he has the properties of a real animal: he eats thistles, and he's also able to float on water without getting his stuffing matted.

RP Canon

One blustery autumn day, Eeyore had been burrowing into a pile of leaves, but when he came out looking for Christopher Robin, he found he was on an unfamiliar lawn. Since then, he's become the Mansion's cuddle therapist: if someone is mopey, he'll offer them a nuzzle and accept a cuddle.
