* TheWoobie: Hoggett during the Christmas scene when his [[SpoiledBrat granddaughter]] rejects the dollhouse he spent months building because "I WANT THE HOUSE I SAW ON THE TELEVISION!" It's okay, Arthur. You can be ''my'' grandfather. I'll play with the dollhouse and you can teach me how to shear sheep. Come on, it'll be lots of fun!

** Just about anyone who eats pork-products is going to look pretty bad.

** Just about anyone who eats pork-products pork products is going to look pretty bad.bad in a film whose protagonist very well could have ''been'' those pork products.



* AdaptationDisplacement: The movie is ''far'' more widely known than the original book, ''The Sheep-Pig'' by Creator/DickKingSmith.
** Less of an AdaptationDisplacement in Britain, where Dick King-Smith is a well-known children's author.
* AwesomeMusic: "If I Had Words", which ranges from sweet, heartwarming, and even a bit of a TearJerker, to just plain awesome when the orchestra cuts in. (As well it should be, considering its tune comes from Saint-Saens's Third Symphony in C Minor, the "Organ Symphony"!) Also the end credits version: those mice really can show off their pipes!

** Farmer Hogget's grandaughter. The [[UngratefulBitch Ungrateful Little Bitch.]] Your grandfather spends days working on a dollhouse for you, possibly spending months creating the tables and chairs, and you're crying over the fact that it wasn't the ONE YOU SAW ON THE TELEVISION!

Added DiffLines:

* FridgeLogic: Rex is nearly deaf, yet he and Fly have at least one very quiet conversation together. One might justify this as him being a dog and so he's only "almost deaf" compared to other dogs, but Fly specifies that he couldn't hear his master's commands while herding - commands which almost certainly would have been shouted or at least called out loudly.

!!''Babe''




!!''Babe: Pig in the City''

* ContestedSequel
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: ''Je ne regrette rien'' features prominently in the movie, well before Film/{{Inception}} used it as its central theme! The end credits, featuring the gentle "That'll do" by Peter Gabriel, also qualifies.
** The version of "If I Had Words" playing when Babe jumps into the water to save the bull terrier from drowning.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RbTCenhTLQ0 "Protected by Angels"]] playing when the humans break into the motel to remove all the animals, is simply gorgeous.
* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: Some people, like Creator/RogerEbert, believe that the second film is superior to the first.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: One of the main points of contention is, like the more recent ''Film/WhereTheWildThingsAre'', where it sits on the handy-dandy "It IS for kids" / "It very definitely is NOT for kids" divide. Don't you dare suggest that it depends on the individual kid. This, combined with ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife'' opening a few days prior, effectively doomed the movie at the box-office.

* AccidentalInnuendo: Mrs. Hoggett polishes a first prize trophy for the Kingsmith Dick Show, which is a ShoutOut to the author of the original novel, but sounds like something much less innocent.
