Reclaiming the Swine -- 10 Pigs We Will Always Love
Pigs of all forms have entertained us for years, whether by taking on human characteristics (they look great in a tie) or as the plaything for Homer Simpson. Take a look at the 10 pigs we love, and remember a simpler time ... before they decided to kill us all with their unstoppable flu.

10. Vance from "Big Top Pee-Wee"
Before Babe there was Vance, the talking pig who assisted Pee-Wee in his bizarre hot-dog-tree-growing experiments and put up with his tiresome romantic entanglements. Why Pee-Wee went from chasing his beloved bicycle to hanging out with a talking swine in the course of one movie was never quite explained. Regardless, Vance was much cooler, and snarkier, than that annoying Piglet from "Winnie the Pooh."


9. Napoleon from "Animal Farm"
We approve of any boar who is a rotund stand-in for Stalinism. Spreading fear and propaganda like a pink, tasty version of Fox News, Napoleon runs fellow pig Snowball off the farm and employs dogs as his secret police force. And by the end of the book, he's walking upright just like a human. Wait a minute -- we're the bad guys? The whole thing's just one big metaphor for man's inhumanity to man!


8. "Spider-Pig/Harry Plopper" from "The Simpsons Movie"
The breakout star of "The Simpsons Movie," Spider-Pig (later renamed Harry Plopper) can walk on ceilings (when being held by Homer) and even has his own theme song (performed by Homer). We're not sure what exactly a spider-pig does, but it's definitely hilarious. Runner-up: Marvel Comics' own resident spider-pig, Peter Porker, the Spectacular Spider-Ham.
