Babe is a 1995 comedy/drama directed by Chris Noonan. It is an adaptation of Dick King-Smith's 1983 novel The Sheep-Pig, which is known as Babe: The Gallant Pig in the United States. When kind Farmer Hoggett (James Cromwell) is at a county fair, he wins a young piglet named Babe (Christine Cavanaugh). Once Babe arrives at the farm, the sheepdog Fly (Miriam Margolyes) quickly adopts him as her own son. Babe wants to be a sheepdog like his new mother, so he practices herding the farm hens. When Farmer Hoggett sees that Babe has that unusual skill, he takes him to his sheep to see if he can herd them as well. Giving the sheep polite requests instead of violent commands, Babe manages to show his skill to Farmer Hoggett. But when Farmer Hoggett decides to take him to the national sheepdog trials, will Babe be able to prove to the rest of the world that a pig can be a sheep herder? Proving the timeless message that great things can come in even the smallest of packages, Babe is a heartwarming tale that is perfect for even the youngest of viewers.
