| forget it.
forget it.

babe remains as cute, as are the 3 singing mice. 1-2 real sweet puppies and kittens, and that's it.

during the movie, you can actually feel the loss of direction, the frantic search for a funny slapstick, by the script writer(s). of cos it was never found.

Did You Know?


This is the fourth Live Action non animated film to feature character voice actor Jim Cummings who voices The Pelican. His two previous ones was The Garbage Pail Kids Movie (1987) 31 years prior Cabin Boy (1994) 5 years prior and Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988) 32 years prior. His next two Live Action films after this would be Small Soldiers (1998) and then 20 years later his sixth one is Christopher Robin (2018).


Ferdinand: He's my lucky pig, my good luck pig. W-w-without him, I'm dead. Deceased! Lifeless! Extinct! A demised duck!


When Esme's suit is fully inflated, you can see that the front part of the pants are still there. In the next shot directly after that, when Babe and Ferdy come running, you can clearly see that the front part is not there, even though she is in the exact same position.

Crazy Credits

One of the singing mice thanks the audience for staying through the credits.

Alternate Versions

Several scenes are in the previews but do not appear in the film, Including a shot of Babe falling out of the hotel window and a scene during the Ballroom Climax where two cooks stretch the rubber feet of Esme Hoggett while spinning her across the room followed by Babe charging into them, Causing them both to fall to the floor.
