BABE the Sheep-Pig is a heart-warming farmyard story in which the animals have the ability to talk to each other. Farmer Hogget wins a clever little pig in a raffle. The pig’s name is Babe. The farmer’s wife intends to prepare Babe for the family’s Christmas dinner, but Fly, a kindly sheepdog, adopts Babe and begins teaching him how to be a sheepdog or, in this case, a sheep-pig. Babe proves himself to be a hero, protecting Farmer Hogget’s sheep from a band of thieves, and eventually he even manages to win the heart of Mrs Hogget, who gives up her plans to make him into a holiday meal.
