While the field mice reappear at the end of the credits in theatrical version, they do not do so in the Pay TV version. In fact, the mice do not appear in the credits at all, either for voices, animation, or animatronics. The vocal portions of the musical credits were peculiarly absent, as these were provided by the mice. See more »
This is one of the sweetest movies I have ever seen. Not preachy, but yet extends a message of love and harmony.
Just loved the pig, and James Cromwell was terrific as the somewhat befuddled but good-hearted farmer. The climax is a wonderfully quiet and touching scene. It's a movie about friendship and trust, you should see it, no matter how old you are.
