“That’ll do, Pig, that’ll do.” Babe, the classic family film about a pig who wants to be a sheep-herding “dog,” celebrates its 20th anniversary! Farmer Hoggett wins a runt piglet at the local fair and brings him home to live with the other animals on the farm. With the help of a Border Collie named Fly, Babe learns how to be the best sheep-pig anyone’s ever seen. This charming film became a surprising international success, with superior animatronics and touching performances from both humans and animals alike.
