Babe isn't any old pig. He's a pig with an identity crisis who speaks to farm animals and befriends a duck. What's not to love? While Wilbur from Charlotte's Web is a childhood favorite, Babe touches the hearts of adults and children alike. His quest to become a sheep herder like his surrogate sheepdog mother, Fly, gives you something to stand up and cheer about. This pig also has manners. He wins over the sheep with his "pleases" and "thank yous," a great lesson for little ones.
