** 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.

* 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.
