Babe

Farmer Hoggett wins a runt piglet at a local fair and young Babe, as the piglet decides to call himself, befriends and learns about all the other creatures on the farm. He becomes special friends with one of the sheepdogs, Fly. With Fly's help, and Farmer Hoggett's intuition, Babe embarks on a career in sheepherding with some surprising and spectacular results.

Continuity mistake: When Babe is walking through the house, you will notice that several times his feet switch from muddy to clean as the camera angle changes.

Trivia: In the scene where Babe and the duck try to steal the alarm clock and accidentally wake up the cat, the camera switches to a view outside the home. You can see two ducks doing what appears to be mating in the pond outside the house.

More trivia for Babe

Question: After Babe first tries to herd sheep on the farm, Rex talks to Fly and mentions that the two of them are ancestors of someone. Could this mean that he and Fly are related and have been inbred? When the puppies are for sale earlier in the movie, the sign for them says that Rex is a champion; it seems like a farmer would be careful not to inbreed a champion dog.

Answer: Rex means that they are both part of the sheepdog family, not that they are closely related. He thinks that when Fly told Babe about sheep-herding, she disgraced her whole species.
