Plot – Once all the adventures are over, Babe goes back to the Hoggett’s farm. He is so enthusiastic to spend the time with his owner that he causes an incident, forcing the farmer to wear a plaster. The activity on the fields stops and the collectors immediately arrive, asking for the mortgage on the farm. Mrs. Hoggett plans to save the farm by exhibiting the pig in a fair, in exchange of money. Even if Babe doesn’t approve, he pleases the owner and they arrive in town, but here things worsen, because the exhibition is canceled. Mrs. Hoggett and Babe stay at a weird hotel, called “Flealick”, where the only human is Fugly Floom. Babe meets other animals: two Border Collies, a monkey, a Neapolitan mastiff, a bulldog, a Persian cat, an Indian Runner goose, two Leicester sheep, an orangutan and some mice. After a series of complexities, Mrs. Hoggett is arrested and the hotel shuts down. The animals are starving, so they defend themselves and they are successful. Mrs. Hoggett is freed, the hotel gets modernized, the orangutan stays at the farm, while the animals find another place. Hoggett manages to make the work start again thanks to Babe, who helped the situation one more time.
