No, the domain name is not for sale, please don’t ask; and we are especially not interested in joining your porn collective; we don’t work blue.

Because it’s basically a love story. Here’s  how it all began!

The Backwards Story of Little Pig Productions.


Chapter One

In middle school, Dave drew a pig because there were already cartoon cats, dogs, and most other farm animals, thanks to Sandra Boynton.

Dave got famous for drawing this pig. “Hey Dave, draw me a pig,” his friends and acquaintances would say.

Dave was popular and everyone wanted to be like him because he could draw a pig.

Dave drew a pig for Kristen.

Chapter Two

Dave asked Kristen to marry him.

Kristen got a computer.

Kristen sent a letter to the Hometown Newspaper to tell them the news.

KRISTEN: “Our lives are so boring. You work in a warehouse and I’m a temp. All these other people in the wedding pages graduated from MIT and found a cure for cancer.”

DAVE: “Tell them we’ve just finished our third opera.”

KRISTEN: “I should put in on some sort of letterhead to make it look official.”

DAVE: “I can draw a pig.”

KRISTEN: “What shall we call ourselves? Big Pig or Little Pig?”

DAVE: “Little. At this point, very little.”

Chapter Three

The rest is history.
