Piggsburg Pigs! is a Fox Kids animated comedy series from Ruby-Spears Productions, which aired in 1990.


Located behind the world's largest pig farm, the city of Piggsburg is a swine-only habitat. Here, the Bacon Brothers: Bo, Portley, and Pighead as well as their pet duck Quackers fight the evil plans of the hungry, carnivorous Wolf brothers Huff and Puff as well as the supernatural forces from the Forbidden Zone outside of Piggsburg. Other pig buddies of the Bacon Brothers include Dotty, Lorelei, the children Piggy, Pokey, and Prissy, and the snobby Rembrandt Proudpork. When not fighting off evil plots, the boys unwind at nearby Newpork Beach.

Needless to say, Piggsburg Pigs! is a comedy, and pig puns are often the humor of choice.
