Wilbur the pig is scared of the end of the season, because he knows that come that time, he will end up on the dinner table. He hatches a plan with Charlotte, a spider that lives in his pen, to ensure that this will never happen.
Based on the beloved children's novel by E.B. White, this is the story of a little pig named Wilbur who was born a runt. Mr. Arable decides to kill him for dinner food but his daughter Fern begs him to let him live. On greater maturity, Wilbut is sold to Fern's uncle, Homer L. Zuckerman, in whose barnyard he's left yearning for friendship, but is snubbed by other barn animals. Wilbur is scared of the end of the season, because he knows that come that time, he will end up on the dinner table. He hatches a plan with Charlotte, a gentle and wise grey spider that lives in his pen, to ensure that this will never happen.Written by

A criticism of the film at the time was that the animation was too weak and not well looked over, as it was being made, being over one hour and a half, from beginning to end. See more »
When Fern gives Wilbur his first bath, the tub is full of bubbles. When she rinses him off, all the bubbles have disappeared from the tub. In the following shot, the tub is full of bubbles again. See more »
[we hear a rooster crow and a cow moo]
This old world is filled with wonders, but to me there is no place more wonderful than a farm in springtime, when the sun is just lifting from the sky line. The air is so sweet and everywhere you look, little miracles are happening. Buds swell into blossoms, eggs hatch, young are born.

Before the 2000s, international VHS releases outside of the USA show a deleted scene right after Avery and Lurvy spot Jeffery trying to get in Wilbur's crate. Here, it also shows Jeffery trying and failing to catch up with the truck before it heads to the fair. His mother then proceeds to lead her disappointed gosling to the pond for a swimming lesson. It is unknown if this scene was shown during the film's original theatrical release, but for some reason, this scene was removed from subsequent VHS and DVD releases. However, the scene was known to appear on occasional TV airings. See more »
Hanna/Barbera's adaptation of the enchanting E.B. White storybook
This delightful animated feature by is by far the best film from the prolific animation studio who gave us The Flintstones and other series; I am a H/B fan myself. As for the original E.B. White book, I think remember reading (and studying it) in Elementary School. But it kind of slip off my mind, until now that is.
You know, after listening to her, Pamelyn Ferdin, is simply darling as the voice of Fern Arable. Ferdin has the uncanny ability to sound both joyous and mournful in the same breath. And when she sang to Wilbur, it almost made me cry.So I love the dear little girl and little Jeffery-ffery the gosling who thinks he's a pig because he likes Wilbur. So as to which version is better this one or the new live action film made in 2006. Well, I love both versions because I'm not to take sides you know. Also I don't have a favorite scene, because I love the whole film; I know I say that many times.
