After a pig’s mother is taken away to be slaughtered by humans (or, as pigs think, to a “Pig Paradise”), his siblings drink from the mechanical milk machine, while he alone bids his mother goodbye. His isolation leads to him being picked out by two men to be in a “guess the weight” booth at a county fair. Farmer Hoggett, who forms a special bond with the pig as soon as he looks at it (according to the narrator, as Babe and Hoggett looked at each other, a faint sense of some common destiny passed between them), guesses the correct weight of 16 lbs, 2 oz. and wins the pig. His wife, Esme, wins nine out of ten first prizes in jams and jellies. Babe is brought to the farm and is allowed to stay with the female sheepdog dog, Fly, and her pups. After being told he isn’t allowed the same privileges as the dogs, such as entering the house and going out to the sheep field, he encounters a duck named Ferdinand. Ferdinand wakes the farm each morning by stealing the cock’s job and crowing. He tricks Babe into helping him destroy the alarm clock- or “mechanical rooster” as he calls it- the Hoggetts have bought because it threatens his job. The two succeed (although the alarm clock was not destroyed because Mrs. Hoggett said they still had it), but end up waking the cat and covering the living room with paint. Babe gets in trouble with the male sheepdog, Rex, the leader of the farm, and is told to stay away from Ferdinand and the house as punishment. Babe then meets Maa, a resident sheep. She tells him what a nice pig he is and how he should watch out for some dogs called “wolves”. Fly’s puppies are then sold and Fly becomes upset. To make her happy, Babe asks Fly if he can call her mom, and Fly happily accepts. Before this, after Babe is told to stay away from Ferdinand, Mr. and Mrs. Hoggett are seen talking about Christmas dinner and whether they would have roast pork or Duck a l’orange (and whether they would kill Babe or Ferdinand). Mrs. Hogget seems to have her mind set on pork.

After getting five perfect 10.0s and the adoration of the crowd, Babe sits next to Hoggett, who delivers the famous line “That’ll do, Pig. That’ll do.”
