Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Originally telecast in Japan under the title Hare Tokidoki Buta, this animated series revolved around a nine-year-old boy and his magical pet pig. Whenever the youngster imagined an adventure, the plucky pig would enable him to "act it out," generally in a slapsticky fashion. The boy, known as Kazuko in Japan, was re-christened Spencer when the series was brought to North America under the title Tokyo Pig. First broadcast on TV Tokyo from July 3, 1997, to September 29, 1998, the series debuted in the U.S. over the ABC Family cable channel on September 14, 2002.
