|An all-pig extravaganza!!! Okay, so it didn’t exactly set the world on fire, but at least Piggsburg Pigs! had a cute premise.
Located behind the world’s largest pig farm, the city of Piggsburg was a swine-only habitat. Here, the Bacon Brothers-Bo, Portley, and Pighead-fought the evil plans of Rembrandt Proupork. Other pig buddies included Prissy, Dotty, Piggy, Pokey, and Proud Pork. When not fighting off Proupork’s plots, the boys unwound at nearby Newpork Beach. Needless to say, Piggsburg Pigs! was a comedy, and porcine puns were often the humor of choice.
No amount of pork jokes, however, could stave off the mighty power of the pigs’ Saturday morning competitors, CBS’ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The 13 Piggsburg Pigs! episodes went in and out of Fox’s lineup, shuffling out to make room for the animated Swamp Thing mini-series before returning to finish off the show’s first and only season.
