Personality

Cantankerous and greedy, the pigs are always trying to antagonize The Flock and get no greater pleasure than disrupting Shaun’s schemes. They are, however, scared of Bitzer, who puts them in line, and even more deeply terrified of the Farmer's wrath. While they are bullies, the pigs are highly intelligent and physically capable. They are capable of operating vehicles, such as a car (The Big Chase) and an airplane (Pig Swill Fly), and are capable of plotting elaborate schemes. On the rare occasion, such as in The Phoney Farmer or Duck! Whistleblower, they'll actually cooperate with the Flock, if begrudgingly.

In addition to their bad manners, the pigs are also quite a cheat, which is especially seen in Hot To Trotter, where they several times to sabotage the dance competition, which also shows that they are generally bad losers. However, while the pigs enjoy playing pranks on others, they don't like being held responsible for things they didn't do, as seen in CSI Mossy.

Although the pigs are mean bullies, they also have a gentler side, which is seldom seen, but especially evident in Turf Wars. They take great care of Timmy, and when he finally gets into danger, the pigs sincerely help the Flock to keep him safe.
