Justice League Unlimited - This Little Piggy television review

Our Throwback Tuesday post takes us back to the animated adventures of Justice League. “This Little Piggy” is a hell of a goofy episode that features Wonder Woman (Susan Eisenberg) being turned into a pig by the sorceress Circe (Rachel York). Needing all the help he can get, Batman (Kevin Conroy) turns to his old friend Zatanna (Jennifer Hale) to try and break the spell. When that fails, he calls on a few C-list Justice Leaguers to hunt down both the Wonder Pig (who goes missing) and Circe. All of the bizarre antics later, including Wonder Pig wandering into a slaughter house, conclude with Batman paying Circe’s price for Diana’s freedom in a way that brings both Circe and Zatanna to tears.

The episode has several fun moments, such as Wonder Woman and Batman’s discussion about dating to open the episode, Zatanna’s remarks about both her previous relationship to Bruce and his obvious feelings for Diana, and of course the price Batman pays to save Wonder Woman (and every single woman’s reaction to it, punctuated by Diana’s smirk and humming to close out the episode). It may not have the highest stakes, but damn if “This Little Piggy” isn’t a fun episode.
