About this product
- DescriptionSome may find it wonky to take a pig to the movies. But t Mr and Mrs Watson, who think the title of the film When Pigs Fly is inspirational. And t their beloved Mercy, who is inspired by the fact that the drive-in proudly serves real butter on its Bottomless Bucket of popcorn. So when they pull up in their convertible, Mercy lifts her sut and becomes a pig on a mission - for what is more heavenly than being hot on the trail of a true butter smell? Masterful slapstick director Kate DiCamillo sends Mercy on a delirious chase, followed by a trail of hapless rescuers that fans will recognize from prior episodes. And Chris Van Dusen's comic retro illustrations perfectly capture a stalgic pastime - along with the newest antics of a charmingly single-minded pig.
