SummaryBabe: Babe is a little pig who doesn't quite know his place in the world. He has a bunch of odd friends. Babe realizes that he has the makings to become the greatest sheep pig of all time, and Farmer Hogget knows it. With the help of the sheep dogs, Babe learns that a pig can be anything that he wants to be.
Beethoven: Barely escaping from nefarious dognappers, an adorable puppy named Beethoven adopts the unsuspecting Newton family. He promptly grows into 185 pounds of romping, drooling, disaster-prone St. Bernard. Proving his canine credentials to mom and the kids, the heroic hound gets nowhere with uptight dad, George. A veterinarian makes Beethoven the target of an unspeakable animal experiment, and George becomes the only hope for saving him.
Cat in the hat: Conrad and Sally Walden are home alone with their pet fish. Outside it is raining and inside there is nothing to do. The Cat in the Hat walks in the front door. He introduces them to their imagination. At first it's all fun and games, but things get out of hand. The Cat must go, before their parents get back.
