A poor dub was made by a company called "Studio E", and distributed by Miramax Television, airing on what is now ABCFamily. Additionally, only eight episodes were released on DVD. It's woefully ignored by fansubbers, so the only way to view it is by scouring Nico Nico Video. This is why the show isn't well known outside of Japan (the only other place where it's famous is Philippines where it's known as 'Sunny Pig'). It's very much worth the effort though, and the jokes are generally quite easy to follow even without knowing Japanese, and if you're familiar with Nabeshin's [[Anime/ExcelSaga other]] [[Anime/PuniPuniPoemi works]], you'll know more or less what to expect. Thankfully, someone had uploaded all 61 episodes, with subs, on Youtube.

Tokyo Pig, probably better known in Japan as HareTokidokiButa (はれときどきぶた) or "Cloudy with a Chance of Pigs" than in the rest of the world, is a comedy anime directed by Creator/ShinichiWatanabe. The show revolves around the main character, a young boy by the name of Noriyasu (or Spencer in the English translation), and his pet pig, which he created by drawing him in a magic diary. Other cast members include [[UnnamedParent "mama" and "papa"]], his sister Tama-chan, and a weather lady called Yamada-ana.
