Gordy is a very smart pig. In fact, he's figured out how to talk to humans. And his best friend is a young boy named Hanky Royce, heir to the Royce Industries fortune. When Gordy saves Hanky from drowning, he wins the love of the child's family -- they even make him temporary CEO of the company after Hanky's grandfather dies. But corporate climber Gilbert Sipes doesn't find the concept of a pig running Royce Industries particularly appealing -- especially since he'd very much like the position himself. So he cooks up a plot to get rid of Gordy. Now Hanky and Gordy had better stop Sipes... before he makes bacon out of the personable pig.
Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:
Bring home the lovable talking pig who waddled off the farm and into our hearts -- and the movie everyone's gone hog-wild over! It's Gordy! The world's cutest piglet whose kindness and bravery lead him and the children he loves on one big adventure after another! The fun begins the moment you enter Meadowbrook Farm, a magical world where real live animals can talk! When Gordy's family is trucked "up north," a mysterious place from which no pig has ever returned, Gordy runs off to find them. He soon befriends two equally adorable children -- the only humans who can hear him because they are "pure of heart." Together, they teach the adult world the true meaning of friendship and the value of family. Now you can own this heartwarming piggy tale full of charm, laughter, and toe-tapping music from the biggest names in country music -- and "overflowing with good will and genuine affection."
