The birds may see these guys as Bad Piggies, but the truth is they aren’t so bad after all! Blindly loyal to the King…yes. Largely clueless…double yes! But actually they don’t like fighting or causing trouble – instead preferring to roll around in muddy puddles and generally goofing around with each other. They do exactly what they’re told and this is what gives them such a bad name!
The Minion Pigs are on the front line in the battle against the birds, which works out for King Pig who doesn’t like to get his trotters dirty! The King’s happy to sit comfortably in his castle and send the pigs off to face their fierce and feathery opponents. And as the minions are so agreeable, they just nod and accept their orders without question. Come on pigs, rise up and say no!
The minions are clueless about most things – almost everything, in fact! But together these odd little creatures can build some surprisingly creative things. Yep, give a pig some old bits of wood and a toolbox and he’ll create a crazy contraption out of nothing. It may look a bit wobbly but it’ll (probably) get you from A to B. Just don’t expect first-class travel or for it to stay in one piece!
The Minion Pigs never ever give up! It’s part of their piggy DNA to just keep going and going – no matter how stupid this may be! When their rickety old junkyard vehicles crash and fall apart, they pick up the pieces and try again. And when King Pig orders them to steal the eggs, they keep going back to face certain defeat. Some say they’re optimistic, others would say foolish!
Mud baths, building things and being silly.
Fighting, being told off and Corporal Pig bullying them.
