The last cartoon to star the Three Little Pigs. Although usually listed as a Silly Symphony, the main titles identify it as a Three Little Pigs cartoon, suggesting that a separate series was in the works. See more »
Didn't I tell you not to go swimming?
Oh, we didn't go swimming, did we?

The Practical Pig is an amusing and very lively Silly Symphony, following Three Little Pigs, The Big Bad Wolf and Three Little Wolves, all of which are just as entertaining as this. The three little pigs are great Toon characters, and the Big Bad Wolf is as rapacious as ever. His sons also return here, and are very much like their father. The Practical Pig was one of my favourites as a kid, and after revisiting it last night, I can see why I loved it so much. The Technicolour animation is great, the music is excellent, and there are so many funny moments, my favourite being when Practical Pig traps The Big Bad Wolf, and puts him in a sort of lie detector machine. Overall, a childhood favourite and I am still very fond of it. 10/10 Bethany Cox
