Tigger starts the day doing what he does best which is bouncing! Rabbit is planting cabbages and doesn't want Tigger to bounce him. He gives Tigger the challenge of bouncing Castle Ridge, an extremely high ridge. Tigger is upset that he can't even make it with his bestest bounce, (actually, it's "best bounce of all."). He begs Rabbit to help him. Rabbit says he's related to the best bouncer in the world, The Awesome Bunny of Upsy Dasia, (actually, it's "Ups a Daisy."), and agrees to 'help' Tigger. He gives Tigger the 'shoes' of the 'awesome bunny.' He gets Gopher to help him, however he quits when Rabbit puts metal and screws in them. Tigger tries to use the shoes to bounce Castle Ridge. Rabbit says he just 'has to get used to them.' Rabbit is upset when no one thinks his joke is funny. Piglet misunderstands Tigger and thinks it's the 'awful bunny.' Tigger is sleep bouncing in his house and Rabbit tries to get the shoes back before it's too late. Piglet is scared when he thinks the awful bunny is in the woods and thinks he wants the shoes back, but Tigger doesn't want to give them back until he bounces to the top of the ridge. Piglet, Pooh and Rabbit camp at Tigger's house. Pooh has his pop gun to scare the awful bunny away. That night Rabbit gets the shoes off Tigger's feet, but when he tried to get rid of them, Tigger sleep bounces him and bounces off into the night. Pooh and Piglet think the awful bunny took him. Rabbit throws the shoes down Gopher's hole. Gopher comes up with them and lets the cat out of the bag. They discover that Rabbit was lying to Tigger the whole time. Tigger is happy because he thinks that Rabbit helped him build up his muscles. Tigger says he had heard about a cow who jumped over the moon. Rabbit faints.
