Cartoon Summary:

The adventures of a 1930s bush pilot who just happens to have the head of a pig. In 1930s Balkans, only one pilot rules the skies: Porco Rosso, a talented pilot who, due to a magic spell, has been transformed into a pig. Porco lives a happy life as a pilot for hire protecting airships from marauding pilots, resting on his private island and visiting his friend, beautiful hotel-owner Gina. But when a hot-headed American pilot arrives looking to make a name for himself by shooting down The Crimson Pig, Porco gets his battered plane back into shape with the help of a feisty teenage engineer called Fio.
