Synopsis: A pig, Babe, is raise by sheepdogs and eventually uses those skills to help Farmer Hoggett.

Fact: 48 pigs were used in the role of Babe because of their rapid growth.

Trivia: James Cromwell had limited vocal ques, he sung 61 words and spoke only 171 words.

Movie Mistake: Farmer Hoggetts sheep have full coats shortly after they've been sheared.

My Take: Great family film. Original, fun and entertaining. Parents, Babe is one of those movies that you can plop your 3-5 year old in front of and they'll stay put.
