Stan Woozle and Heff Heffalump are a pair of animal villains occasionally featured in The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. They are also possibly one of the many cartoon parodies of George and Lennie from John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men.
Role in the series
In "The Great Honey Pot Robbery," Stan appears to be calm, devious and somewhat intelligent, while Heff appears to be loud, easily scared and idiotic. When the two are foiled by Roo (whom Heff thinks is a giant mouse) the first time, Stan decides to go to a friend of his named Wooster, a gigantic woozle who Stan and Heff lead to Pooh's house where "brunchfast" is about to start. Leading Wooster to Pooh is what Stan hopes will get he and Heff what they want, but when Pooh befriends Wooster and foils them a second time (just like the first time when Roo stopped them), Stan flees with Heff and vows that they will return and take their honey, one way or another.
In "A Bird in the Hand," Stan and Heff come up with a plan to capture Kessie and hold her for ransom (that being honey). After capturing Kessie and Rabbit and taking them to their hideout, Stan is the one who sends Pooh, Tigger, and Piglet a ransom note.
When they too are captured, Kessie convinces Stan and Heff to start taking care of them. Kessie's constant demands result in a flood of honey in the thieves' hideout and Stan's begging to take Kessie far away from them. This was his and Heff's last appearance.
- Heff mistakenly thinking Roo is a giant mouse is a reference to the Looney Tunes shorts starring Sylvester and Hippety Hopper.
