''Iggy Arbuckle'' is a Canadian animated series that premiered in Canada on Teletoon in June 2007. Based on a comic strip from National Geographic Kids, the show is created by Guy Vasilovich, and focuses about a pig (Iggy Arbuckle) who happens to be a forest ranger, known in the series as a "Pig Ranger". The plot involves Iggy's attempts to protect the environmental structure of the fictional Kookamunga National Park. It is produced by Blueprint Entertainment.

The series is also aired in Australia on ABC Kids and in the UK on Jetix UK from August 25, 2007, Pop from June 27, 2011. Oasis International, the Canadian distributor, also licensed the series to channels such as Cartoon Network (in Korea, Southeast Asia, India, and the Philippines) and Canal + SA and TPS in France. It was also broadcast on Saturday mornings on Toonattik Creator/{{ITV}}1 and the CITV Channel, and weekday mornings on Action Stations! on ITV4 and the CITV Channel.

The show takes place in a fictional national park known as the "Kookamunga" (The "Kook" for short). The park is looked after by a white pig named Iggy Arbuckle, who is the creator of the "Pig Rangers", a fictional type of forest ranger. He is accompanied by a beaver named Jiggers, who is the only other canonical Pig Ranger in the show.

Iggy's [[ArchEnemy arch nemesis]] is a catfish named Stu, who is always trying to use the Kookamunga to obtain wealth. Most of the stories revolve around Iggy and Jiggers' efforts to save the park's ecosystem from Catfish Stu.

!!Tropes used:

* AmbiguouslyGay: Iggy Arbuckle himself. He often displays very feminine and flamboyant mannerisms but yet he's very fit and energetic and doesn't mind getting his hands dirty. He is also shown to have a very LimitedWardrobe and lack of interest in art and/or culture. With all that said, he hasn't been shown to have interest in either gender.
* BadLiar: Iggy played straight. His [[PinocchioNose nose twitches]] when he [[BlatantLies fibs]].
** It's so noticeable that even other members of the cast will comment on it. [[spoiler: Or take advantage of it.]]
* BambooTechnology: Jiggers is a master of this trope... except... with wood, not bamboo.
* BerserkButton: Do not - I repeat - Do NOT mess with any part of the Kookamunga with Iggy around. Seriously. Just don't.
** Do not litter when Spiff is on duty... or even when he's off duty. You will end up on his bad side... and you really, really do not want to be on the bad side of a trash collecting skunk.
** Do not insult money with Catfish Stu in earshot.
** Jiggers was super ticked off when he never got his bottle cap collection back from Spelvin.
* BiTheWay: Jiggers imagining Iggy as a cheerleader is at least bit suspicious. Although unlike Iggy, he appears to actually have interest in girls and has looked at Kira in an arguably dreamy way.
* BornWinner: Iggy in spades. He is descended from a long line of successful explorers after all. It's in his blood.
-->'''Iggy''': ''(After being advised to lose a competition.)'' I don't know ''how'' to lose.
* TheCatfish: Catfish Stu who is definitely vicious
* CompanionCube: Spiff's garbage. He once named an apple core 'Carl' and spoke to it like it was his best friend.
** It's not uncommon for him to name his garbage at any point really. He talks to all the discarded wrappers he finds as though they were his long lost children.
* {{Crossdresser}}: Jiggers has cross-dressed for various reasons.
* DeadpanSnarker: Jiggers occasionally becomes this.
-->'''Iggy''': ''(Referring to perfume.)'' I hope this smells ok. Maybe we should ask Spiff for help.
--> '''Jiggers''': Oh. Good idea. Let's ask a garbage-collecting skunk to test perfume.
** Jiggers is this pretty much all the time. Spiff has some shades of snarkiness as well.
* DoingItForTheArt: InUniverse example. Spiff is a [[InsistentTerminology sanitation worker]]. He collects garbage like no other garbage collector has before... and he does it for the art.
** Quite literally. He keeps a collection of cans with which he can make little figurines.
* DraggedByTheCollar: Subverted. Iggy likes to drag Jiggers places by his overalls.
* FiveManBand: It's a bit of a stretch but.....
** TheLeader: Iggy
** TheLancer: Kira (Jiggers could also qualify, though)
** TheSmartGuy: Jiggers (Appears to be TheLancer at first but he's pretty much the inventor of the gang)
** TheBigGuy: Spiff (Does martial arts and a lot of physical labor picking up trash)
** TheChick: Zoop
* FishOutOfWater: Kira sometimes comes across as this.
* FurryConfusion: ''Iggy Arbuckle'' appears to remedy [[CarnivoreConfusion this problem]] by making all of the characters vegetarian.
** Quite often, FurryDenial is averted.
-->'''Jiggers''': ''(Objecting to Iggy wanting to take him flying.)'' I'm more of a land and water-based mammal.
** And in another example...
-->'''Jiggers''': Iggy, trust me. As a pig, you'll never know the heartbreak of unruly fur!
** Also, in ''Way of the Skunk'', Jiggers tries to get out of helping Spiff by using the excuse that he's a beaver and not a skunk. Zoop is then forced to explain that this sort of help is for everyone and not just for skunks.
** Played straight in the episode ''Fish and Chip off the Old Block'' when [[spoiler: Iggy temporarily loses his memory.]] During this time, he appears completely blind to the difference between Jiggers and a regular beaver. On the FurryDenil aversion, nor does he know the difference between a pig and a catfish.
** Iggy's caterpillar Furry ''seems'' to be this.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Go back and watch the episode: ''How Much Wood Could A Woodpecker Peck?''
* GiggleSnort: Being a pig, Iggy is known for doing this quite often.
%%* GranolaGirl: Zoop
* HollywoodTourettes: The parrot in ''Bird in the Hoof'' wanders the 'Kook' and the others assume that he's just a traumatized parrot trying to imprint on others. (Quite possibly arriving through an owner who abandoned him there.)
** [[spoiler: It is later discovered that he actually knows what he's saying and was simply spewing profanity to start fights.]]
** [[spoiler: Later, Spiff arrives on scene to see everyone [[BerserkButton making a mess]] of Mooseknuckle because of their fights. The bird ends up vocalizing his thoughts (quite accurately) for him. Zoop then comments that birds of a feather flock together and that it actually makes sense that the two most socially misguided characters in town would end up being friends.]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Spiff occasionally comes across as this.
* {{Keet}}: Iggy. With small, [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter cute]], colourful and [[NoIndoorVoice perpetually loud]]... but he is definitely hyperactive... so much so that in the episode ''One Fine Day'', everyone became ticked off and tried to avoid him.
** And in ''If Pigs Could Fly'', he found it very difficult to just sit around for extended periods of time without becoming anxious/tense.
* NervousWreck: Jiggers twitches his tail whenever he's nervous.
* NewAgeRetroHippie: [[GranolaGirl Zoop]].
* NoSocialSkills: Spiff prefers the company of trash to pretty much anyone.
* PatchworkMap: Kookamunga National Park contains a swamp, a forest, a desert, a tropical beach, a volcano, a frozen tundra, glaciers, geysers, and a lake; all jammed up against one another. PlayedForLaughs, obviously.
* PapaWolf: Iggy and Jiggers in the episode ''If Pigs Could Fly''. Iggy moreso than Jiggers.
** Iggy also displays traits of this in other episodes like ''Honey, I Ate The Bug''.
* {{Perfectionist}}: Jiggers.
** Iggy although, arguably to a lesser extent.
* PigMan: Iggy and much more appropiately, his hero Manly Boarman.
* RhymesOnADime: The Great Bamzeani
* RiddleMeThis: While not used in the traditional sense, The Great Bamzeani always talks in rhyming riddles. Only Iggy can decipher their meanings and normally, these riddles serve a plot point.
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: Ironically, Iggy and Jiggers seem to alternate between the two.
* SuperOCD: Iggy is often portrayed as being obsessive over... just about everything. While this doesn't appear to affect his relationships all that much, it is occasionally a source of annoyance for those unable to keep up with his abundant energy.
* ThemeNaming: Particularly within Iggy's family. Great Uncle Squiggy, Great-Great-Great-Grandfather Ziggy, Great-Great-Grandfather Figgy, Great-Grandfather Twiggy. I'm noticing a pattern here...
** Also (albeit to a far lesser extent), Iggy and Jiggers who are in the habit of calling each other 'Igg' and 'Jigg' respectively.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Jiggers loves himself some yak cheese.
** Iggy will take just about anything as long as its smothered in hot sauce.
* TunnelKing: Zoop. She is a chipmunk after all.
* WickedWeasel / WeaselMascot: Robert and Robear seem to alternate between the two.
** They work for the main antagonist and tend to give the main protagonists a hard time by making a mess of things. They're even [[KleptomaniacHero kleptomaniacs]].
** They tend to be cute and playful with each other. (Even though they do cause physical harm to each other whenever one of them cheats.) They also don't turn down free food.
