Storyline

In a Medieval castle, a marauder tries to kidnap the twin infant sons of the lord. He makes off with only one, whom he drops about a mile away. A pig rescues this baby, so one brother grows up high on the hog, the other down with the swine; one is lazy, his lost brother is industrious. Years later, when a neighboring prince declares war, the brother in the castle is too soft to fight. Through happenstance, the twins are united just before the final battle. Will the upper-class brother let his humble sibling lead the troops to certain defeat and death? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

I still remember it from the animation festival
19 November 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I remember that I first saw "Wat's Pig" several years ago at the animation festival held in an independent theater in Portland. What an impressive piece of work. Watching it, one can see - and I mean see, as there's very little dialog - how the kidnapped brother lives a laborious life, while the other remains a worthless rich person. And who would have guessed that a pig could play this kind of role? I don't know whether this cartoon is currently available anywhere. If it is, then you should definitely find time to see it. It goes to show what one can accomplish through images. Very good.

So, to rework what another pig famously said: B-dip, b-dip...th-th-th-that'll never be all, folks!
