"Go play your banjo, goober!"
A 1995 movie in which a piglet goes on a search for his family and along the way, he meets a country-singing girl with no mother and a rich boy with no father (Hey, it's a Disney-distributed movie!). Eventually, Gordy becomes famous.
The film was a failed attempt at providing an acting vehicle for Country Music singer Doug Stone, who also sang many of the songs in its soundtrack (including "More Love", which was a hit single for him).
This film contains examples of:
- Artistic License - Film Production: Nobody during the filming of a commercial looks through the camera to see if they liked the footage so that they can't notice the lens has been replaced with a wide-angle lens.
- The Cameo: Louis Rukeyser.
- Caligula's Horse: Gordy is the head of a major company after the owner gives it to him.
- Guess Who I'm Marrying
- Heel Face Revolving Door: Jessica.
- Hero of Another Story: The crazy cross-dressing robber with the pantyhose on his head.
- Light Is Not Good: In a really awkward transition scene the main villain looks as if he's being surrounded by a heavenly glow, as a result of the effects guys doing a poor job of matting out the wall behind him.
- Never Trust a Trailer: Rarely does Gordy actually speak, but the trailer makes it seem like he speaks throughout the movie.
- One-Book Author: Still the only thing Doug Stone ever acted in. Strangely, his singing career also died not long afterward, but the film had nothing to do with that — health problems rendered him temporarily unable to record, and by the time he fully recovered, his style was out of mode.
- Notable Original Music: "Pig Power in the House", a rap song which was made for the movie and even has a Music Video for it.
- Pet Heir
- Random Events Plot: The movie begins with Gordy being separated from his family and somehow ends up making him head of a major corporation.
- Speaks Fluent Animal: According to this film, anyone can understand animals if they take the time to listen. Which apparently amounts to about ten seconds of silent observation.
- Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: For some reason, the villains never consider just killing Gordy.
