Who is not familiar with Pippi and his elder brother Melchiad? Through their witty and unusual ideas these two little pigs won the hearts not only of the youngest generation of TV spectators but they drew the attention also of the adult audience.
This time they are presented as puppets with new original stories about the pig life, as they were created by the young Slovene writer Matjaž Briški and actor Jurij Souček.
Zou will get to know the stereotypes of pig habits as well as the troubles and the beauties pigs have to face every day.

Their perspective of pig life will be presented in rougish way through the eye of a pig teaching us about secrets in the pig world.
