Trivia: Babe
  • Dueling Movies: Against Gordy, a slightly earlier film also about a young talking pig. It won so handily that most people now think Gordy is the knockoff, though the two don't have as many similarities as one would expect.
  • Fake American: Miriam Margolyes as Fly, Hugo Weaving as Rex, Magda Szubanzki as Mrs Hoggett and many Australian extras doing American accents.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Zefram Cochrane is Farmer Hoggett.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!:
  • The Other Darrin: In Babe: Pig in the City, E.G. Daily replaces Christine Cavanaugh as Babe. Coincidentally enough, both voice actresses starred on Rugrats (Cavanaugh as Chuckie, Daily as Tommy)
    • Or The Powerpuff Girls, where the second Babe was Buttercup, while the first Babe was Bunny, a short-lived Powerpuff Girl.
  • Shown Their Work: Hoggett uses actual sheepdog commands; the film's tagline is used to recall dogs.
  • Sleeper Hit: This was not expected to be a successful film at the box office but had a strong life in theaters and video thanks to critical acclaim, excellent word-of-mouth and its multiple Oscar nominations.
  • James Cromwell (Farmer Hoggett) was so moved by working on this film, that he became a vegan (though he already was a vegetarian).
