Break out your pink T-shirts and curly tails, fellow swine enthusiasts: March 1 is National Pig Day. According to the Los Angeles Times, the holiday was started in 1972 by sisters Ellen Stanley and Mary Lynne Rave to celebrate "one of man's most intellectual and domesticated animals." To celebrate this special holiday, we rounded up some of the most famous hogs of all time.
In the quirky world of Hooterville on the 1960s sitcom Green Acres, Fred and Doris Ziffel didn't adopt a pig to be their pet. No, Arnold was their pig son.
To great comic effect, the talented porker attended school, knew how to paint and loved to watch TV - just like a real boy.
While we haven't seen much of Arnold since the 1990 television movie, Return to Green Acres, there is a chance he might make an appearance on the Great White Way. According to , a Broadway musical of the show could be in the works.
