"You seldom find them so cute and so animated... a real charmer."
Garth Johnson of Extreme Craft has extensive coverage about this wheeled and squeaking toy pig being appraised on Antiques Roadshow.
I agree with Jesse Thorn that this segment is quite possibly the greatest segment in the history of Antiques Roadshow. A rather smug gentleman shows off his rare "animated" pull pig toy. The fellow doesn't get his comeuppance, though. His confidence in the awesomeness of his pig toy is rewarded by a $2000-$2500 appraisal for his $200 investment.Animated Pig Pull Toy
