Tokyo Pig tells the story of Spencer Weinberg-Takahama, a normal third grader. One day, his life is perfectly normal. He goes to school, does his homework, gets straight As, and lives with his unusual family. The next day, thanks to a magic diary, he receives his loyal and amazing pet, Sunny Pig. So, you're probably wondering if TP is a good show. Read on.

Tokyo Pig can be summed up in one word: underrated. The show itself is excellent, and the animation (which is colorful and weird enough for kids but stylish enough for parents to bear) feels straight out of Japan, the mystic land of anime and video games. The voice acting is good, and there are some familiar voices, such as Spencer himself. The voice actor is the same one who voiced Tai Kamiya in the first two seasons of "Digimon." Also familiar is Wally Wingert (Spencer's dad), who, unless I am mistaken, voiced a Tallest in "Invader Zim" and was a cast regular on the popular sketch show, "Kids in the Hall."

The show has excellent writing and characters (such as mad scientist Wigstaff and Southern beauty queen Tiffany) and, and the plots are well thought out. Character design is good and funny, and the show itself deserves five stars. Why did I give it four, then?

The DVD is bare bones. Commentary? No. Animatics? No. Documentary? No. The only so-called "special features" are English captions for the hearing impaired. Tokyo Pig is a great show, and deserves these extras. Something more like the "Invader Zim" DVDs (which are jam-packed with extras) would be nice.

So, overall, buy or rent? Definitely a buy. The show is great, but please Miramax Kids, add more extras to your DVDs! I hope that Miramax Kids will release more volumes of Tokyo Pig in the future.

Tokyo Pig was a cartoon on ABC Family a few years ago. This DVD features 8 episodes of the series (When Pigs Fly, Dad is the Worst Cook in the World, Luck of the Draw, Trouble in Lightning-land, A Bitter Fruit, Incredible Shrinking School, Samurai Lunch Lady, and pigs on Ice). The show is very weird. For example, Sunny Pig does a dance each episode for no particular reason. If you like the show or other bizarre shows, you will probably want to get this DVD.

I first saw this show on cable tv back in the late 90's. I would try to explain what I saw to my friends. Then why I like and watch something like this. Now here is another proof that "Anime" can be child friendly and funny to adults. When the situations created in each show gets out of control, it is always amazing how things are set right.

The "Tokyo Pig hits DVD" review I wrote had a severe error in it. Wally Wingert did voice a Tallest in IZ, but was not on KitH. The other Tallest's voice actor was on KitH. Just correcting some information.
