Pig City is a French/Canadian cartoon created by Andy Knight (also known for creating Ned's Newt, Get Ed, and Bolts & Blip). It was co-produced by CinéGroupe, AnimaKids, Fox Kids Europe, and Red Rover Studios.

Mikey Hoggins is a country pig whose parents thought he'd benefit more from a city education. So, they decided to send him to live with his rich cousins in the city, the DeBoars. Now Mikey spends his days with his cousins, Martha and Reggie, going to school, helping them deal with their problems, and fawning over the local richest girl in school.

The series aired on Teletoon in Canada, ProSieben in Germany, and Fox Kids internationally. It ran from April 16th, 2002, to January 10th, 2004 with 39 episodes over 3 seasons.


Pig City contains examples of:

  • Alliterative Name: Link Linken.
  • Blinding Bangs: Reggie has them.
  • Bookends: This show forms one half of a pair for the Fox Kids block. One of the first shows on the block was Piggsburg Pigs!, another show about a city of anthropomorphic pigs, while Pig City would wind up being one of the last to air on the block before it went defunct in 2002.
  • Bratty Teenage Daughter: Martha. She care only for things that benefit her, and takes joy in her brother and cousins' misfortunes.
  • Christmas Episode: Christmas Ham. Mikey actually brings Martha and Reggie to visit his parents for Christmas.
  • Country Cousin: Mikey to Reggie and Martha.
  • Country Mouse: Mikey Hoggins.
  • Dumbass Teenage Son: Reggie. He's not too bright.

  • Inexplicably Tailless: The pigs don't have their curly tails popping out of their attire, unless they're shown naked.
  • The Unseen: Mr. and Mrs. DeBoar are never shown onscreen. They usually communicate with their kids via a voice box.
  • World of Funny Animals: The entire population of the city is pig people. Though one of the stories in the Halloween Episode ended with the protagonist landing on a planet populated by sheep people.
