"Trap as Trap Can" is the second segment of the thirteenth episode of the first season of The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh that originally aired on April 10, 1988.

Summary

Pooh and his friends help Junior Heffalump to complete the mission sent by his father; to trap woodland animals.

Plot

Somewhere deep in the woods, Papa Heffalump teaches his son, Junior Heffalump about trapping woodland creatures, which he claims to be an inherent skill among Heffalumps. To do so, Junior has to learn the three "T and T's", : tracking, trapping and trashing. On his first try on "trapping" , Junior fails and ends up trapping his father. While fixing the trap, Papa Heffalump then suggests that Junior practice his "tracking" first, which sends him to despair.

In another part of the woods, Pooh and Piglet are seen playing with a butterfly. Not too long after, they hear the sound of Junior Heffalump crying. He then tells Pooh and Piglet about his problem in learning his "T's". Pooh misunderstands it as "tea", which reminds him of tea parties. Piglet then suggests that they go to Rabbit's place, where tea parties are held. As the three arrive at Rabbit's house, where it is revealed that he is indeed having a tea party, Rabbit is surprised to find out that Pooh and Piglet have made friends with a Heffalump. Pooh and Piglet then tell Rabbit about Junior's problem with the "T's". Rabbit reluctantly agrees as they mess up his tea party.

In the meantime, Papa Heffalump continues his search for his son, whom he believes to have gone missing. He then spots a grazing Eeyore, whom he suspects to have taken his son. As Papa Heffalump is preparing to capture Eeyore, the latter reminds him that he is standing on a thistle bush, which is one of his many allergy triggers. Papa Heffalumps ends up releasing a big sneeze, which blows himself away to Rabbit's house, where he ends up crashing his tea party. Papa Heffalump ends up covering himself in flour, and then takes his son away. Piglet mistakes Papa Heffalump for a ghost, and they all believe that Junior has been kidnapped by it. Papa Heffalump and Junior return to the trap, but Papa Heffalump ends up sneezing again, which blows Junior back to Pooh and his friends.

Pooh, Piglet and Rabbit, along with Junior, hide in Gopher's tunnel, where they land on top of him. Pooh and Junior try to explain the situation to Gopher, but the only thing that caught Gopher's attention is the "T and T's", which Gopher mistakes for dynamite. After that, Papa Heffalump is seen trying to fit himself into Gopher's hole, but remembers that he is allergic to holes as well. Papa Heffalump's sneeze coincides with the dynamite explosion, which blasts him away. After the blast, a crying Junior finally explains the entire situation to them. Pooh suddenly then thinks of an idea.

Junior Heffalump finally reunites with his father. Junior later reveals that he has successfully "tracked" some woodland creatures (which are revealed to be Pooh and Piglet bound by a rope). Papa Heffalump, who is proud of his son, then orders a reluctant Junior to "trap" Pooh and Piglet. The trap, however, fails again and captures Papa Heffalump, just like before. Junior thinks his father is disappointed, but his father tells him that he is more proud than ever, and excitedly tells Junior to bring them home and show it to his mother. As the heffalumps bid farewell to Pooh and Piglet, Papa Heffalump ends up sneezing once again
