Parvana est une petite fille vivant à Kaboul en Afghanistan de nos jours pendant la période des talibans, juste avant la guerre. Son père est professeur et lui a enseigné la lecture et l'écriture malgré l'interdiction faite aux femmes d'avoir une éducation et une vie juste. A cause de cela, il est arrêté par les talibans et emprisonné. Parvana décide de se couper les cheveux et de mettre les anciens vêtements de son frère, mort mystérieusement, pour se faire passer pour un garçon, travailler et nourrir sa famille : sa mère, sa grande sœur et son petit frère. De péripéties en péripéties elle n'abandonnera pas le projet d'aller libérer son père et de redevenir libre dans son pays qu'elle aime.

Much to the frustration of his young daughter, Shane (Elena Franklin), he eats compulsively unhealthy and has minimal concern for germs or disease. While trying to eat a hard-boiled egg with mayonnaise and salt, it is stolen from him by a chimpanzee. He gets it back, but not before it falls into the filth of the chimp's habitat. When Shane is disgusted by him about to eat it he uses the "ten second rule" as a justification for the unsanitary act.

When farmer John Arable decides to "do away with" the runt of a litter of pig, his daughter Fern intervenes, telling him that it is absurd to kill it just because it is smaller than the others. John decides to spares the piglet and let Fern raise it as a pet. Fern nurtures it lovingly, naming it Wilbur. Six weeks later, Wilbur, due to being a spring pig, has matured, and John tells Fern that Wilbur has to be sold (his siblings were already sold). Fern sadly says good-bye as Wilbur is sold down the street to her uncle, Homer Zuckerman. At the farm, a goose coaxes a sullen Wilbur to speak his first words. Although delighted at this new ability, Wilbur still yearns for companionship. He attempts to get the goose to play with him, but she declines on the condition that she has to hatch her goslings. Wilbur also tries asking a rat named Templeton to play with him, but Templeton's only interests are spying, hiding, and eating. Wilbur then wants to play with a lamb, but the lamb's father says sheep do not play with pigs because it is only a matter of time before they are turned into smoked bacon and ham. Horrified at this depressing discovery, Wilbur reduces himself to tears until a mysterious voice tells him to "chin up", and wait until morning to reveal herself to him. The following morning, the voice reveals herself to be an araneus cavaticus named Charlotte living on a web overlooking Wilbur's enclosure. Charlotte tells Wilbur that she will come with a plan guaranteed to spare his life.

Ce dessin animé est une parodie de l'histoire bien connue des Trois Petits Cochons, produit dans le ton de la propagande anti-nazis de la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Dans ce dessin animé, les cochons partent en guerre contre Adolf le Loup (sous les traits d’Adolf Hitler), qui menace d'envahir Cochonland (Pigmania dans la version américaine). Les deux cochons qui construisent leurs maisons en paille et en bois déclarent qu'ils n'ont pas besoin de prendre des précautions contre le loup puisqu'ils ont signé un Pacte de non-agression avec lui. Le cochon qui construit sa maison en pierre, le Sergent Pur Porc (Sergeant Pork dans la version américaine) prend ses précautions et renforce sa maison avec un puissant dispositif de défense composé de barbelés, de bunkers, d'obusiers et de tranchées.
