Eeyore is a fictitious character from A. A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh stories. He is a pessimistic, gloomy, unhappy, anhedonic, elderly grey stuffed donkey who is a buddy of Winnie-the-Pooh, the titular character.

Eeyore appears in Winnie-the-Pooh chapters 4, 6, 7, and 10, and is mentioned in a few more. Except for chapter 7, he appears in every chapter of The House at Pooh Corner. The spelling with a “r” is explained by the fact that Milne and the majority of his intended audience spoke a non-rhotic variation of English in which the “r” in “Eeyore” is not pronounced as /r/.

Eeyore is defined as a “old grey donkey” in terms of appearance. He looks to be chin-high to Pooh and hip-high to Christopher Robin in Ernest H. Shepard’s pictures. He has a long, detachable tail with a pink ribbon on the end, which he adores but is also prone to misplacing (Owl once mistakes it for a bell-pull). With the use of a drawing pin, Christopher Robin is able to reconnect the tail.

Eeyore’s reading level is unknown in The House at Pooh Corner. When Christopher Robin presents him the letter “A,” Eeyore has no idea what it signifies; all he knows is that “it means learning,” which is something he dearly wants to be known for, but he violently burns the letter after realizing that Rabbit (who is extremely literate) already knows about it.

Nonetheless, while signing the “rissolution” that the animals offer to Christopher Robin as a farewell present in the last chapter, he spells his own name “eoR.” Eeyore also composed “POEM,” a badly rhymed poem that appeared on the “rissolution,” making him the only character in the Winnie-the-Pooh books that attempts to create poetry other than Pooh himself (a fact that Eeyore himself notes). When Pooh meekly claims that Eeyore’s poetry is superior to his own, “really believing it to be true,” Eeyore vainly responds, “it was meant to be.”


Most of the other creatures in the Forest, according to Eeyore, have “no brain at all, some of them,” “just grey fluff that’s blown into their skulls by accident,” and “no brain at all, some of them” (from chapter 1 of The House at Pooh Corner). Thistles are Eeyore’s favorite meal. On the map in the Winnie-the-Pooh book, he dwells in the southeast corner of the Hundred Acre Wood, in a region labeled “Eeyore’s Gloomy Place: Rather Boggy and Sad.”

There’s a stick house named The House at Pooh Corner where he lives. After mistakenly mistaking Eeyore’s initial house for a pile of sticks, Pooh and Piglet constructed it for him. Pooh gives Eeyore an empty honey jar to store things in, a popped red balloon from Piglet to keep in the pot, and a message from Owl for his birthday.

When the game Poohsticks is played in the sixth chapter, Eeyore is unexpectedly skilled at it, winning more times than anyone else.

Eeyore is a character in The Walt Disney Company’s Winnie the Pooh animations. In the Disney adaptation, he is less acerbic and sardonic than in Milne’s original stories. Winnie the Pooh and a Day for Eeyore focuses on Eeyore, who is usually a supporting character. He is one of the strongest animals and is frequently handled as a pack animal when the story requires it.

His house is constantly being demolished, but he always rebuilds it. He typically anticipates bad things to happen to him, accepts them when they occur, and seldom attempts to avoid them. “Thanks for notifying me” and “Ohhh-kayyy” are two of his catchphrases.

His pessimism was also evident in an encounter with Piglet, who greeted him enthusiastically with “Good morning!” “Well, I suppose that is…for some,” Eeyore said.
