Episode Summary

When Pigs Fly
The first episode of this hyper-kinetic, ultra-hip original anime comedy series introduces the fantastic adventures of nine-year-old Spencer and his magical pet pig, Sunny. Spencer's world changes after he draws a sky full of pigs in his journal and Sunny appears out of the clear blue sky. With Sunny by his side, Spencer discovers he has the ability to make whatever he imagines come to life. Now -- with powers kids can only dream about – the duo embark on a new adventure each week as Spencer tries to keep his stray thoughts and careless scribbles in his journal from running wild and turning his life upside-down.moreless

  • A great first episode.

    This episode was the one that started it all to a great show for all pig-lovers and for just plain anyone in need of a good laugh. It was a great and original idea to use Spencer's diary as a way for pigs to come to life. Also, it really puts you in the shoes of Spencer, because you can relate to his reactions and expressions when his mom's neck grows so long and no one notices. This episode stays in my mind the greatest for many years to come. It would be great if they brought back Tokyo Pig.moreless
