Journal Entries

Timid, retiring Eeyore lives in a little house in the roots of a tree. His tail is held on by a tack, but it keeps falling off and getting lost. Now he's wandering the woods, looking for a new home.

He reluctantly appeared in "Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree" (1966).

Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories

A gloomy donkey whose tail keeps falling off and getting lost.

Eeyore is timid and always a little down, and likes to take things slow.

Kingdom Hearts II

Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree (1966)

Eeyore always seems to be a bit gloomy. His usual residence is a house built of sticks. His tail is held on by a tack, but it keeps falling off and getting lost.

Eeyore spends quite a lot of time wandering the Hundred Acre Wood looking for a new home, because his stick is always falling down.

Story

Kingdom Hearts

Eeyore was not present until Sora collects the missing pages of Pooh's storybook. When Sora, Pooh, Piglet, Owl, Tigger, and Rabbit visit a river, they find Eeyore floating down the river. Sora rescues him and then helps him find his lost detachable tail.

Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories

Like all of the other Winnie the Pooh characters, he is part of the mini-game "world" of 100 Acre Wood, where he is found while leading Pooh from one end of the map to the other.

Kingdom Hearts II

When the Heartless tore out the pages of the book again, most characters in 100 Acre Wood disappeared, leaving only Pooh within the world with no memories of any of his friends. To solve this problem, Sora went on another journey to find the scattered pages of the book and assisted Pooh's friends in helping Pooh regain his memories of them. When Eeyore finally reappears, Pooh doesn't remember him until after Sora and Rabbit give Pooh honey in an attempt to use food to trigger his memory.

Personality

Eeyore's character is very pessimistic, having never been exposed to the harsher realities of life outside of his world in the 100 Acre Wood. Because of this, he often thinks things on the bad side, but is always willing to help his friends.

Physical appearance

Eeyore is a rotund, grey donkey with a light grey underside and mouth. He has long, floppy ears and a long face. His eyes are black and always half-shut, and his eyebrows are black. He also has a thick, black "crest" of hair lining the top of his head to roughly halfway down his back. The middle of Eeyore's face sports a seam, and he has a grey tail that is attached to his rear by a tack (possibly a reference to pin the tail on the donkey), which he often loses. His tail sports a black tuft of fur on the tip and a pink bow tied on it just below this.

Origin

Eeyore is based on his respective character in Disney's 1966 short film Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree, which is, in turn, based on the Winnie-the-Pooh book series by A. A. Milne.

Eeyore's character is based on a real life stuffed animal owned by A. A. Milne's son, Christopher Robin Milne.

Trivia

  • Unlike most voice actors reprising an old role, Eeyore's current voice actor Peter Cullen (best known as the voice of the original Optimus Prime) did not reprise the role of Eeyore. This makes Kingdom Hearts the only version of Eeyore without Cullen.
