Synopsis: Unlike the other barnyard pigs, Peddles sees life differently. He thinks about eating pizza, soaking in a bath tub, sitting on a toilet and going into space.

When he finds a pair of red boots in a bag of shoes, he tries them on, stands up, falls over on his back and can’t get up. His friends step in and give him a nudge.
