We've got to do

something about that duck.

Ooh! Ooh!


- What's that noise?

- It's only Ferdinand.

- What's Ferdinand?

- He's a duck.

- He wants to be a rooster.

- He hates being a duck.

- We'll catch him one day and eat him. Won't we, Mom?

- Yes, dear.

Yech! Who'd want to eat a duck?

Babe, you wait here.

- Aren't pigs allowed?

- Not live ones.

- Sorry, dear. Only dogs and cats inside the house.

- Why?

That's just the way things are.


- Ow! -


Ooh, what a spectacular

feast I've got for you.

Oh, yes! What a lucky

little pork chop you are.

Delicious! Oh, yes! Yum, yum, yum.

Who's gonna grow up

to be a big, fat pig?

You are! You are! Yum, yum, yum.

- Where are we going?

- To work with the sheep.

- What's sheep?

- Sheep is animals with thick, woolly coats.

And thick woolly heads. And men

can't look after them without us.

- Why do they need us?

'Cause we're sheepdogs! Yea!

- Not you, dear.

- Why not?

We have to do dogs' work. You're a pig.

Your job is to stay here and eat your food.

We'll be back at the end of the day.

They don't think I'll

remember. Well, I don't forget.

Seems like a sheep's

just born to suffer.

Hello? Excuse me.

Darn wolf!

- I'm not a wolf. I'm a pig. What are you?

- Ewe.

Pig. What are you?

I'm a ewe. A ewe!

- You're a sheep!

- I'll not be called a common sheep, thank you kindly.

I'm a Border Leicester

ewe. The name's Maa.


- What's wrong with you, Maa?

- Foot rot. And I got me a nasty cough.

And I'm not as young as I used to be.


- Seem like a nice young pig. What be your name?

- Babe.

Not like them wolves. Treat

you like dirt, they do!

- Bite you as soon as look at you, those savages!

- Bite you?

And worse. Some wolves be so bad,
