Babe and Emily was filmed in Robertson, New South Wales, Australia. The talking-animal visual effects were done at Rhythm & Hues. The setting and style of the film are distinctly British/Australasian pastoral in the 1910s, people from Australia including Magda Szubanski, Hugo Weaving, The Wiggles, Paul Livington, Wade Hayward, Zoe Burton and Brittany Byrnes, people from England including Paul Goddard, Miriam Margolyes, Tim Curry, Steve Coogan, Terry Jones, John Cleese and Eric Idle and people from America including James Cromwell, Ross Bagley, Kevin Jamal Woods, Courtland Meeds, Bug Hall, Miriam Flynn, Jim Carrey, Christine Cavanaugh, Tim Conway, Don Knotts, Don Rickles, Danny Mann, Russi Taylor, Kate Soucie, Dick Van Dyke, Judy Garland, Mickey Rooney, Gene Kelly, John Erwin, Gilbert Gottfried, Tim Allen, Tom Hanks, Bill Irwin, Paul Reubens, Jim Henson, Frank Oz, Richard Hunt, Jerry Nelson, Steve Whitmire, Eric Jacobson, Carol Spinney, Dave Goelz, Kevin Clash, D.B. Sweeney, John Tartaglia, Joey Mazzarino, Rick Lyon, David Rudman, Jerry Juhl, Stephanie D'Abruzzo, Marty Robinson, Sammy Davis Jr, Joe Ranft, John Lasseter, Fran Brill, Michael Jeter and Christopher Lloyd have accents of their own that fits the Characters very well since D.B. Sweeney took over the first draft of Babe and Emily, never wanting the producers to overdub all the human characters from Australian to American because he thought it might lack the quality of Australian Motion Pictures. Tony Geiss and Judy Freudberg also took over production, making the movie take place in 1917, while Jim Henson, Frank Oz, Jerry Juhl, Don Sahlin, Caroll Spinney and Jon Stone thought of the Muppets appearing in the film as main and minor characters. Newcomers Rebecca and Fred Astle thought of turning it into a Musical. Walt and Roy Disney, John Lasseter and Sweeney also wanted it to combine Live Action with Traditional Animation. Sweeney taught Brittany how to write a Screenplay, Byrnes wrote scenes with the Count announcing the Chapters and counting them while Geiss showed all the Sesame Street Segments, Cartoons and Songs throughout the breaks of the Film whenever they fade out. Gene Kelly and Sweeney also taught the Actors how to dance and sing to the songs with the Muppet crew teaching them how to perform with Muppets.
Before filming began, D.B. Sweeney, Chris Noonan, George Miller, Tony Geiss, Judy Freudberg and Jim Henson researched and studied the original draft of Babe and Emily, originally titled "Babe". All six writers including Sweeney felt that the first draft of the script lacks the childlike quality, innocence of the child and respectfulness among children, it had Violence, no Musical Numbers, crossovers between Muppet productions, or Traditional Cel Animation, it originally had People talking with all American Accents, Cars, Buses and Trucks that are left hand driven, Emily Hoggett as the nameless granddaughter, Maa the Sheep dying after the Wolf attacks, Kids being rude to adults even at Christmas, Profanity, Modern Humor, the scene where the Sheep rustlers are kidnapping Sheep and it took place in the present day. The Granddaughter was not named Emily and there's no Mr. Grumpy in the original version. And worse of all, it's not completely faithful to the Book. He never liked the Script, he was very irritating when he read most of the parts. Henson, Geiss and Freudberg never liked it either, they also knew it lacks the sweetness and love of Childhoods. Both Noonan and Miller regretted the script after they talked about the original version. Geiss and Freudberg called other writers to revise the script. Geiss rewrote the Sheep rustlers as clumsy Henchmen of Mr. Grumpy while he and Freudberg wanted it to take place in 1917. D.B. Sweeney created Mr. Grumpy as a Comically Spoiled, Childish, Selfish and Bratty Villain of the Film. Rebecca and Fred Astle told them that the Movie should be turned into a Children's Musical Comedy, they loved the idea. All 30 writers removed most of the dark, edgy, violent, scary, bad and unsettling parts and Scenes and made the final version more Innocent, more nicer, more cleaner, more sweater, more kid friendlier, more lighter, more softer, more brighter and more cuter than the original script. He told them that they don't need to gain more American Film Market Acceptance on the silver Screen. They can gain acceptance from American, Australian and British Film Markets and they can both be Audiences of the Movie.
The Train Station where Emily's Uncles, Aunts, Brothers, Sisters and Cousins arrive from America is the Glenbrook Vintage Railway in New Zealand. The Trains appear in the movie too, including KB 968 pulling up with the Express, JA 1250 departing Glenbrook, WW 480 loading the Freight Cars and KA 949 speeding past the Railway. Geiss rewrote the scene from the City family arriving in a modern day van to the American family arriving in a 1910s style Steam Train.
The film is a critical and box office success and was nominated for eleven Academy Awards including Best Picture, but lost to Braveheart. Fortunately it won five Academy Awards including Best Visual Effects, Best Film Editing, Best Animation, Best Sound Effects and Best Children's Musical. It even won four Golden Globes Award including Best Motion Picture Musical or Comedy, Best Musical Score, Best Animated Feature and Best Adaptation. The success of the film launched a sequel three years later. So in 1998, the sequel film Babe and Emily: Pig and Girl in the City was released. And it's 1998 sequel got countless positive reviews from critics.

(The credits to the Movie appear in gold writing. The Title "Babe and Emily" writes itself.)
The Count: AH! Babe and Emily! It's going to be great! Now for the first Chapter "The Beginning". That's One, One Chapter. Enjoy the Movie everybody!
(If i Had Words sung by the entire Cast.)
(Opening credits began to appear on a Stop Motion Animated Background. When the credits end, we come into a Frame of a Piglet. The Picture turns into Color and becomes real. The Piglets are sleeping and drinking Milk from their Mother in harmony.)
Narrator: This a Tale about two unprejudiced, thankful, grateful and unselfish Hearts, and how they changed our World forever. There was a time long ago, when Pigs and Children were afforded no respect, except by others who would care to love another very much. They lived their whole lives in a cruel and sunless World. The year was 1917, during World War 1.
(Entering the Factory was a 1912 Ford Truck was backing up. The Pigs began to worry and shiver with Fear.)
(Song: It is so cruel when People are mean Music and Lyrics by Robert Lopez.)
Narrator: In those days, Children were sometimes treated like Vermin or even Monsters. Adults sometimes lack respect among Children including Materialism, even on Christmas and Birthdays when they don't get what they want and Pigs believed that the sooner they grew large and fat, the sooner they'd be taken to Pig Paradise. A Place so wonderful that no Pig ever thought to come back.
Fat Blue Dealer: Hey Curly, what are we going to do with this Pig?
Pumpkin Dealer: Well Shemp, we will turn it into Roast Pork.
Fat Blue Dealer: Hmm, i think it can be perfect. Bring her out.
(The Pumpkin Dealer pulled the Gate open. The Fat Blue Dealer was trying to pull and push the Sow from her Babies, but she's too heavy.)
Pumpkin Dealer: She's too heavy Curly.
Fat Blue Dealer: I know that Shemp. But i think i have a perfect Idea, we can use a Cart.
(The Fat Blue and Pumpkin Dealers pull the Pig on the Cart. It worked perfectly.)
Pumpkin Dealer: Well it worked perfectly Curly.
Fat Blue Dealer: It sure does Shemp. And i know how to handle these Baby Pigs, with my Milking Machine. Like so.
(The Fat Blue Dealer pulled the lever.)
Pumpkin Dealer: Well where is it?
Fat Blue Dealer: Oh, Boy. Here he comes.
(A Milk Container comes down from the Ceiling and the Piglets started drink it from it, except one Piglet who watches his Mother go.)
Babe: Goodbye Mom.
Pumpkin Dealer: That is a neat invention Curly. What is it?
Fat Blue Dealer: I called it the "BubblyPlupper" It's the bestest invention ever created.
(Song: BubblyPlupper Music and Lyrics by Richard and Robert Sherman.)
Narrator: So when the day came for their Parents to go to that other World of endless pleasures, it was not a time for Young Pigs to be sad. Just another step towards the day when they, too would make the Journey.
Truck Driver: These flipping Pigs are ready to go Boys.
(The crew got the Pigs into the Truck. The Truck drives off.)
Gate Guard: Going up!
(He pulls the Gates up as the Truck passes by. Inside the Factory, Babe was crying.)
Babe: I will miss you Mommy. I really will.
Narrator: Perhaps it was because he was alone. Perhaps his Sadness made him easier to catch. Whether the Reason, of the Thousands of Animals in the Piggery that day, only One, Two, Three or Four were chosen.
(Harry and Jordan, two British Con Artists enter the Factory. They have a Cage being pulled in a Cart.)
Harry: This place is filthy Jordan.
Jordan: Harry this is where you can get a Pig for a living right here in Yorkshire. You know that do you?
(Jordan picks up a Pig and puts it in a Cage. Harry does the same with the other Pigs.)
Piglet 1: What's going on?
Piglet 2: I don't know.
Piglet 3: Me neither.
(Jordan picks up Babe from his Cage.)
Jordan: How's this Harry?
Harry: Just right for the purpose. How much do i owe you Jordan?
Jordan: Are you kidding? It's a Runt Harry. It's a just a worthless little Runt.
(Jordan puts Babe in the Cage.)
Babe: What's going on here?
Piglet 2: We're going to the Fair to be weighed.
Piglet 3: That's when we come to a Farm when our weight is correct.
Piglet 1: But don't worry Babe. We will be alive still.
Babe: I never thought of that.
Jordan: Come on. Let's get the heck out of this flippin Factory.
Harry: You think this Pig can be of good us?
Jordan: Why of course.
Babe: Hey Spud. Where are we going?
(Fades to Black)
The Count: Ah, The Hoggett Family. That's two, two Chapters.
(The Scene opens at a Children's Hospital in Yorkshire. A Nurse is picking a Baby Girl up from a Crib.)
Narrator: Everyone is born, but not everyone is born the same. Some will grow to be Butchers, Bakers, Candlestick makers, Cookers and Farmers to name a few. Some will only be really good at making Jelly Molds and Birthday Cakes at Parties. One way or another though, every Human is unique, either for better or for worse.
Arthur Hoggett: A Baby Girl from Heaven.
Esme Hoggett: Just like Jesus Christ the day he was born on Christmas Day.
Arthur Hoggett: We will call you, Emily Hoggett.
(Arthur carries the Baby outside the Hospital, where a giant Family of siblings wait patiently on a Cart while other Families are all carrying newborn Children.)
Narrator: Most Families like the Hoggetts believe Children are the most beautiful Creatures ever to grace the Planet, others like the Bernardis take a less emotional approach.
(The Bernardis are carrying 12 newborns and walked out of the Hospital. They never looked happy at all.)
Timothy Bernardi: Boy, what a waste of time.
Tracy Bernardi: And painful too.
Harvey Bernardi: And expensive. Nine Pounds for a Bar of Soap?
Christopher Bernardi: Well i had to take a Shower, Harvey.
Gene Bernardi: Five Thousand Pounds?! We're not paying it! What are we gonna do, repossese the Kids for Pete's Sake?
Fozzie Bear: Just ignore them Arthur. They're nothing but complete Half-wits. Giddup.
(The Hoggetts ride in a crowded Horse and Cart with Fozzie Bear as the Driver.)
Fozzie Bear: Ah the Countryside, a beautiful Place for a Horse and Carraige or Cart Ride.
Gonzo the Great: Way better than those loud and noisy Cities.
(Song: I love to ride my Horse and Cart Music by Alan Menken and Lyrics by Howard Ashman)
Narrator: Arthur, Esme, Ludwig, Madeline, Danny, Michael, Josie, Joshua and Robby Hoggett, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, Cookie Monster and Ernie live in a very nice Farm and a very nice House at the very nice Countryside. Oh, did i mention that they are also very nice People?
Fozzie Bear: Home sweet Home.
Narrator: They have two next door Neighbors named Rod and Nicky. They were very particular with all the Hoggetts.
Ludwig Hoggett: Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, Hoggett's Chocolate Factory is now OPEN!!
Lew Zealand: Hey there Arthur Hoggett!
Rowlf the Dog: Hey, how's it going there Arthur?
Pepe the King Sprawn: How are those Sheep of yours, Arthur?
Lew Zealand: And i believe you have your granddaughter here.
Rowlf the Dog: Come on, try your luck.
Pepe the King Sprawn: How about taking a guess, Arthur?
Lew Zealand: All for a good cause.
(Emily sees Babe in a small Box, looking very scared and shivering with fear.)
Arthur Hoggett: Don't keep Pigs.
Rowlf the Dog: Hey, hey, hey! Remember, Mr. Hoggett. On Christmas Day, it'll be perfect as Roast Pork.
Lew Zealand: Yeah, yeah. Just think of it. What a Feast you'll have!
Emily Hoggett: That'll do Pig.
(She starts patting the Pig's head gently. Then she picks him up. After being picked, they stare at each other.)
Narrator: The Pig and the Child regarded each other. And for a fleeting moment, something passed between them. Something, unlike anything they've ever knew. A faint sense of some common destiny.
Rowlf the Dog: Hah! Strange. For the first time, this little thing hasen't been screaming its head off.
Pepe the King Sprawn: Ah yes yes, it's very strange yeah. And now you'll have to have a guess, okay? Uh, no charges for the accounts. We'll take it for a refill.
(Arthur weighs the Pig and moves him up and down.)
Arthur Hoggett: Sixteen Pounds, Five....
(Babe starts to urine on the floor, leaving Arthur and Emily stepping backwards.)
Rowlf the Dog: Uhhh.
Lew Zealand: Yuck.
(The Writers look at Emily, Arthur and Babe, suspeciously. Babe grunts.)
Arthur Hoggett: Two Ounces.
Writer 3: Two Ounces.. Perfect.
Pepe the King Sprawn: Oh and one more thing Mr. Hoggett. If it ever happens again, just make sure you bring a Bowl, okay?
Rowlf the Dog: Otherwise, you might have a small pile of Mud.
Lew Zealand: You wouldn't have that, would you?
Ludwig Hoggett: Odds Bobs Hammer and Tongs! I'm burning Smee!
Esme Hoggett: That Oscar the Grouch has done it again.
Oscar the Grouch: GERONIMOOOOOO!!!!!!
(Chickens run out of the Grass, Oscar gets up unharmed.)
Oscar the Grouch: Doodle loo de do.
Ferdinand: LOOK OUT EVERYBODY!!!
Tony: Who would do such thing to bump a Dalmatian's stinking Head?
Babe, Tony and Ferdinand: GROVER?!!
(Grover is chopping the Wood off the fallen down Tree.)
Ferdinand: That Monster is everywhere.
Grover: Now let me see here.... Sixteen Pounds Five and Two Ounces. Ah, i did not know that.
Sam the Eagle: Well it's not distemper. Can't be Rabies. So it must be the Hormones.
Esme Hoggett: What about Hoggett's Notion Sam? The Dog jealous of the wee Pig?
