Tokyo Pig, also known as Fair, then Partly Piggy is an anime series, based on a picture book written by Shiro Yadama. The series is about a boy named Spencer Weinberg-Takahama who starts writing his journal entries a day in advance, after discovering that whatever he writes down actually happens the day after.

The anime series was created by Group TAC, which was aired on TV Tokyo from July 3, 1997 to September 29, 1998. When it was dubbed into English, it was renamed Tokyo Pig. The dub was first broadcast on September 14, 2002 in America on ABC Family.

ABC Family had aired the first two episodes in order, but started airing a limited amount of the original Japanese episodes out of order. Out of the total 61 episodes, only 28 episodes were dubbed and aired in America, while the series it self would be pre-empted by repeats of older episodes and shows like Spiderman, Power Rangers, and the Incredible Hulk. After the series' abrupt cancellation on March 30, 2003, Miramax released "The Best Of Tokyo Pig", which only contained 8 of the 28 dubbed episodes. Nowadays, 12 of the once-lost dubbed episodes can be found on the internet, along with the released 8, but there are 5 episodes that are still missing.
