John Fiedler Quotes:

Narrator: Now, Piglet lived in the middle of the forest in a very grand house in the middle of a beech tree. And Piglet loved it very much.
Piglet: Whew, yes. Whoops. You see, it's been in the family a long time. It belonged to my grandfather.
Piglet: [pointing to sign] Oh, that's his name up there. "Trespassers Will." That's short for "Trespassers William."
Narrator: Trespassers William?
Piglet: Yes. And Grandma, oh, she called him T.W. That's even shorter.


Sidney: Don't you understand what I'm trying to tell you, Henry? You're in trouble. If I keep telling them you're at the dentist's, they're going to want to count your teeth.


Piglet: [as he sails like a kite on his scarf string; repeated line] Oh, dear. Oh, d-d-d-d-dear, dear.
