    From what I've come to understand, this guy was let off the hook with all charges dropped. I think that he was accused of fondling a preteen girl in 2004 but those charges were dropped also. Talk about a tough career!

    but like i said.. he went to let the lil boy put his arm around him then he moved like he was trying to keep the boy from doing something!! i figured he might have been going to knock him in the head

    I think you two may be talking about two different incidents involving the Tigger character.

    their is another youtube video i found that showed what happened before the shoot.. and the dad was messing with tigger! and they discuss that if the father and son are messing with tigger!

    they say something like they might be trying to open the back of the costume... which i thought when i first watched it.. it looks liek he is trying to do soething to his back thats why he does the lil guys arm that way

    I'm fairly certain those were different character actors in those two incidents. The accused fondler was the first incident, which he was cleared from in court, but he was then accused of harassing or messing around with a couple of photopass photographers backstage or something some time later. It didn't sound like a huge deal (well, going by what I read of it anyway - I'm not trying to play down the severity of the incident), but the photographers complained anyway and I guess was the last straw for that CM and he was fired.

    The Tigger who gave that boy a little swat after having his costume messed with was a different CM, but I haven't heard the followup on that story either.

    thanks Don!!

    from the the unedited video it is very clear the father and son was messing with tigger and i think that is AWFUL outof them in the first place but to them holler and say we want him to say he is sorry or been on tv complaining about it is just plan rude crazy and someone should smack the dad too!

    Why are people stupid? I mean that father had other children with him, he did not need to model such behavior. It only encourages those kids to act defiantly. I saw the video and it is apparent that that boy was doing something behind Tigger's back to provoke the character to leave the picture pose and react with instant reflex.

    I Wikipedia'd it and it says that the Tigger guy who had that video on Youtube is the same guy that was accused of fondling a little girl, and Wikipedia never lies!
