"No Rabbit's A Fortress" is the first segment of the sixth episode of the second season of The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.


When Rabbit is finally fed up with Pooh, Piglet and Tigger messing up his garden, he builds a fortress around it, complete with booby traps. When he realizes he has trapped himself in, he needs his friends to get him out. Can they get Rabbit out of his fortress?


Rabbit is tired of Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, and Gopher always ruining his garden, so he builds a fortress around it. Pooh, Piglet and Tigger begin to walk toward the fortress, and they also fall for all the booby traps that Rabbit has installed in their way. When they reach the fortress, Rabbit explains to them that the fortress is used to keep Pooh and his friends away from his garden. Pooh and his friends feel sad and walk away.

Rabbit is excited and starts to garden, but he realizes that he had forgotten to build a door and that he has trapped himself. He tries to call Pooh and his friends back, but they do not believe him at first. Rabbit is able to call them back by luring them with honey for Pooh and bouncing for Tigger.

Pooh and his friends try everything to get Rabbit out of the fortress (trying to use a battering ram to break it down, trying to catapult Piglet, trying to vaccum Rabbit out of the fortress), but they fail on every plan. Just when they are about to give up, Pooh, Piglet and Tigger get the idea to blast Rabbit out when they hear Gopher says that his tunnel needs to be blasted. Gopher blasts open the fortress.

However, Rabbit is nowhere to be seen. Pooh and his friends try to look for Rabbit, but they cannot find him anywhere, and conclude that he is gone for good. However, they soon spot Rabbit high up in a tree (the dynamite must have caused Rabbit to fly up). Gopher tries to get Rabbit down, but he cannot use an ax or dynamite on the tree. Pooh is able to get Rabbit down by saying hello to him, which also causes Rabbit to let go of the branch he is holding onto. Rabbit falls from the sky and right on top of Pooh. Pooh and his friends surprise Rabbit with his garden that they fix up and Rabbit apologizes to his friends for being such a selfish jerk from before. Pooh finds a pogo stick in the woods, and gives it to Rabbit as a gift. Rabbit jumps on it, which also lets out a big kaboom (the pogo stick is really a dynamite), and blows up Rabbit's garden once again.
