Perusing News in the Animation World, I came across this snippet from the "Cartoons on the Bay" Festival, just concluded in that country shaped like a boot:
... Disney's "My Friends Tigger and Pooh" won a special mention for its screenplay ...
MFT and P is out of the Disney TVA stable (like you didn't know). And I point out this award here because Nicole Dubuc, one of the show's talented writers, is also a TAG board member.
So. I guess this is a shout-out.
