Super Pig is the English-language version of the Japanese anime Tonde Burin (とんでぶーりん Tonde Būrin), originally created by Nippon Animation with 51 episodes, and based on the manga by Taeko Ikeda. It was broadcast in Japan by TBS from September 9, 1994 to August 26, 1995.

The English adaptation was produced by Saban Entertainment in 1997 and aired in New Zealand on TV2. Despite being dubbed by an American company, the English dub is only known to have managed to air overseas in New Zealand and the United Kingdom. Another English dub aired in the Philippines under the title Super Boink; which kept all the original music, but also changed character names.

Synopsis

A teenage girl named Kassie Carlen, comes across a starving pig named Iggy, and feeds it an apple. Iggy is in fact an alien being and a prince, and in gratitude he gifts Kassie the ability turn into a pig with special strength and the ability to fly. Kassie is pleased at getting superpowers but is upset that she has to use them as a pig, but Iggy explains if she can use her powers for good, she will collect a number of pearls, and with enough pearls she will earn the right to user her powers in her human form. Thus begins Kassie's superhero life as Super Pig.
