Babe is a heroic pig with an unprejudiced heart. He spends his days watching Farmer Hoggett and Rex and Fly (world-class sheepdogs) teching their pups to be sheepdogs. Babe decides he wants to grow up to be a sheep-pig. This is the charming tale of what can happen when the underdog is an under-pig with an oversized heart.
