A heffalump is a fictional creature similar to an elephant mentioned in the Winnie the Pooh stories, in Winnie-the-Pooh (1926) and The House at Pooh Corner (1928).

Origins of creature

In the books, Pooh and Piglet attempt bravely to capture a heffalump in a trap. But no heffalumps are ever caught in their trap, and indeed no heffalump is ever met with in the course of the books. The sole actual "appearance" of heffalumps in the books come as Pooh tries to put himself to sleep. "He tried counting Heffalumps but every Heffalump that he counted was making straight for a pot of Pooh's honey... when the five hundred and eighty-seventh Heffalump was licking its jaws, and saying to itself, 'Very good honey this, I don't know when I've tasted better,' Pooh could bear it no longer." We learn nothing more about the nature of the beasts — rather sensibly for an animal that does not even exist in the fictional world of Pooh et al. — in the writings. Although never explicitly stated it is generally thought that heffalumps are elephants from a child's viewpoint (with the word "heffalump" being a child's attempt at pronouncing "elephant"). Even though it was never stated, E. H. Shepard's illustrations in A. A. Milne's original books depict heffalumps (as seen in Pooh's dreams) as looking very much like elephants. Piglet can refer to: Look up Piglet in Wiktionary, the free dictionary A juvenile pig. ... Ernest Howard Shepard (December 10, 1879-1976) was a British artist and book illustrator. ... A.A.

Heffalumps in the Films and TV series

The heffalumps in the television series The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and the animated films also look like elephants, albeit slightly cuddlier and less fierce elephants than those Pooh imagines in the books (In other words, the Heffalumps in the animated version look more a bit like cuddly toys because they had patches on them). In Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day, the Heffalumps are depicted as honey loving but unpleasant creatures in Pooh's dream sequence which includes the popular song Heffalumps and Woozles.

In the animated television series, most heffalumps are enemies of Pooh and his friends. They are known to steal honey, and are often associated with woozles. One particular heffalump named Heff was the dim-witted sidekick for Stan the Woozle, and he was afraid of Roo, because he thought Roo was a giant mouse (perhaps a reference to the Looney Tunes running gag of Sylvester mistaking Hippety Hopper for a giant mouse). Being voiced by Chuck McCann, Heff sounded just like Bouncer Beagle from DuckTales.

Pooh's Heffalump Movie (2005) - Ninth Symphony Films Review (772 words)
Pooh's Heffalump Movie is unequivocally made for the youngest of audiences and it is only the adult viewer's childhood love of the characters that will make the experience something impressively fuzzy.
If one were to compare Heffalump and other recent Pooh escapades such as The Tigger Movie and Piglet's Big Movie, a subtle difference would be apparent between these films and the short films of the past (such as "Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day" from 1968).
As an addition to the world of Pooh, this Heffalump is a worthy addition to the gang and does gentle justice to the time honored characters he joins.
