Winnie The Poohing also known as Going Winnie The Pooh Style or Donald Ducking is a slang term used to describe someone who is wearing a shirt but no pants or bottoms at all, like the cartoon characters Winnie the Pooh or Donald Duck. The idea has been the subject of jokes throughout the 2010s.
The exact origin of the term "Winnie the Poohing" and "Donald Ducking" is unknown. It is based on the fact that cartoon characters like Donald Duck and Winnie the Pooh, among many others, wear tops but no bottoms, an often frowned-upon fashion choice in real life. On February 9th, 2010, the term "Winnie The Pooh Style" was defined on Urban Dictionary to describe this.

A song about the various cartoon characters that don't wear pants called the "No Pants Dance" aired on Toon Disney sometime between 1998 and 2009 highlighting how humans should not follow their example (shown below).
