Top 6 Famous Pigs – Can You Guess Them?

23 May

I’ve done a lot of reserch lately on my kind. I’ve come across what I believe are the top 6 most famous pigs. I wonder if you recognize any of them? Let’s go down memory lane to see if you know at least one šŸ™‚


Everyone remembers this wonderful story from child hood. Saved from the slaughter house – shivers – by Fern, Wilbur grows from the runt of the litter to a prize winning pig.

Sounds kind of familiar with myself since once upon a time, I was a little runt as well. I like to think I’ve done good for myself. This story also has a fabulous looking spider named Charlotte in the novel.

She almost makes you think spiders are cute and adorable, you know.



All Babe wanted to do was be a sheep dog so what did he do? He trained himself to herd sheep. That makes sense, doesn’t it? No one believed in him that he would succeed but he persevered.

He learned the secret language of sheep and his success and being a sheep pig was secured!

This movie is wonderful and very touching – makes you fall so deeply in love with this special oinker!



The piggy of my dreams – swoon! She is a blue eyed bombshell, all sweet and girlish on one side and on the other side ready to karate chop herself to the top.

What is there not to love about this gorgeous pig?!

When will she ever learn that the green Kermit is not for her and she should just come and live with me at the Hotel Thompson? We could make an awesome – wonderful team together!



I’ve been watching this pig for a while now on Green Acres – he is right up there with my friend Maxwell. I love that he lives in Hooterville and does all of the things I like to do – watching TV and changing the channels, taking his lunch box in his mouth to school and painting pictures.

He was a little human pig… just like me! šŸ™‚

Who would have ever thought I was a pig in training from Arnold?!




“Th-th-th-that’s all folks!” This is one of my favorite cartoons to watch on my television in my bedroom at the Hotel Thompson. He has stuttered his way into my heart and home.

I think I have several DVD’s of his cartoons that I like to watch at night when I’m falling off to sleep. He’s great! He can carry his own show and be a side character. I just love this cartoon!

And, are you ready for the number 1 pig as a famous pig?




Did you honestly think I would pick anyone else? Snort chuckles.

I like to think that I’m famous. Maybe not anywhere else but here with my friends that I simple love and adore!

Thanks for going down memory lane with me.

XOXO – Bacon

    Every time I see your blog it makes me want to adopt a little piggie of my own. I have actually found a place (sort of) near me that keeps them

      Mom says that’s about right in the prices. We are pretty easy to take care of but on the other hand we require a lot of attention. Just ask mom/dad šŸ™‚ I’m like a little child that never grows up really. Mom/dad said they wouldn’t change it for the world though so that’s good šŸ™‚ XOXO – Bacon

    I remember visiting my sister when my nephew was a wee little thing and he was watching Babe. He insisted I watch with him. I told him “if a movie has animals in it, I’ll cry”. Nonsense, he said, you’ll be fine, I’ll be here with you. Cute thing. He did laugh hysterically when I did, indeed, cry.

    We all have our own favourite pig but this was quite a good collection.I had a job remembering “Porky Pig” for some reason.All the others I have seen on TV. But ” Bacon” is always remembered.

    You are the # 1 for me – that’s for sure! I hope Mrs. Piggy will answer to your letter (but maybe the green thing from the swamp “piggulated” your letter?) You would be a wonderful couple!

      05/23/2013 at 9:29 am

      aaww thanks Easy. I think you’re right about that amphibian. I think he threw my letter away. I must send her another one to see if she gets it this time. Thanks!! XOXO – Bacon

        maybe you can send her a good recipe for frog legs too -She is a gourmet – I’ll bet she can’t resist – and your problem is solved.

        05/23/2013 at 9:32 am

        Hey – that’s the ticket!! You’re the bestest Easy. I think you have the solution to my single woo’s. I’m off to start looking for recipes and typing my love a letter. XOXO – Bacon

    You’re my #1 pig, Bacon, but my mommy got all misty eyed remembering Wilbur and Arnold . . . something about such fond memories of when she was young . . . I have no idea what she was talking about.

      aaww – thanks so much. My mom got misty eyed too. What’s up with these humans? XOXO – Bacon
