Three pigs names

What name went with what pig in 'The Three Little Pigs'?

There is a 19th century version from Scotland; "The Three Wee Pigs." The protagonists were called Dennis, Biddy, and Rex, and they were kicked out of the old sow's house because Dennis had accidentally stepped on one of the new piglets. They got caught in a horrible snow and rain storm; when Biddy saw a cart of straw he quickly built a house. Soon they bumped into a pig named Jimmie McLaughlin, "who was at school with Dennis. " Jimmie felt sorry for them and gave them some wooden slats. ("Son, school is where you'll make the important connections.") Finally, a man came by with bricks and Rex built a house out of them. After the requisite huffing and puffing, the wolf knocks down the first two houses but gets stuck in the chimney of the brick house. "So they hooked him down the chimney, and cut him up into collops, and roasted him for their supper. " The story concludes. "But there are no houses up in the wood now, for the pigs were all taken to the old people's houses, and there they died.",+Biddy,+and+Rex&source=bl&ots=_Fai3nZL80&sig=44NPLWB9Rox_TuGvKf0irwRYL44&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiQ_q2_jtPOAhWJ4SYKHU-8AYsQ6AEIFDAA#v=onepage&q=Dennis%2C%20Biddy%2C%20and%20Rex&f=false

There is another 19th century version from England; "Three Little Pigs." (According to an authoritative collection called 'A Dictionary of British Folk Tales,' edited by Katherine O. Briggs.) The protagonists were called Browny, Whitey, and Blacky In this version, also told at least as far back as 19th century England, the language was explicitly moralistic. In this case, the three pigs were Browny, who "spent most of his time rolling and wallowing about in the mud," Whitey, who was gluttonous and greedy, and "the youngest and best looking, Blacky," who is "a good, nice little pig, neither dirty nor greedy. He had nice dainty ways (for a pig), and his skin was always as smooth and shining as black satin." One day the old sow tells her kids that before she dies she wants them to build houses and quizzes them on how they would do it. Browny says "a house of mud," to mom's disappointment. She asks Whitey. "A house of cabbage," answers Whitey, with a mouth full, and scarcely raising her snout out of the trough in which she was grubbing for some potato-parings." "Foolish, foolish child!" said the mother pig. Finally she asked Blacky, who says, "A house of brick, please mother, as it will be warm in winter and cool in summer, and safe all the year round." The predator in this version is a fox, not a wolf. The fox quickly burrows his way through the mudwalls--no huffing or puffing--and carries poor Browny" off with him to his den." The fox then eats through the cabbage walls and carries poor "trembling, shivering" Whitey away to join her brother. When the fox fails to scratch through the brick wall, he goes down the chimney and gets captured, boiled, and eaten. Then, Blacky goes to rescue his siblings." As he approached the den he heard piteous grunts and squeals from his poor little brother and sister who lived in constant terror of the fox killing and eating them." He busts them out, they joyfully thank him, and they live happily ever after in Blacky's brick house. In case the moral is not yet clear, the story ends, "And Browny quite gave up rolling in the mud and Whitey ceased to be greedy, for they never forgot how nearly these faults had brought them to an untimely end."

Disney, it seems, combined the basic plot devices of the first 19th century version --huffing, puffing, wolves, straw, sticks -- with the clear moral dictates of the second. The Disney version of the "Three Little Pigs" was produced in 1933. Pig number one, "Fifer Pig," sings, "I build my house of straw, I build my house of hay, I toot my flute, I don't give a hoot, I play around all day. " The "Fiddler Pig" sings, "I build my house of sticks, I build my house of twigs. With a hey diddle diddle, I play my fiddle, and dance all kinds of jigs." The dour third pig, named "the Practical Pig," sings, "I build my house of stone, I build my house of bricks. I have no chance to sing and dance, because work and play don't mix." Piper and Fiddler are openly contemptuous of their brother but he reacts with mature self-confidence, shaking his trowel at them and singing, "You can play and laugh and fiddle. Don't think you can make me sore. I'll be safe and you'll be sorry when the wolf comes to your door." They mock him and then break into the famous rendition of the song, "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf."

The Three Little Pigs

Once upon a time, there were three little pigs, named Peter, Patty and Penny, who left their mommy and daddy to see the world.

All summer long, they roamed through the woods and fields, playing games and having fun.  None were happier than the three little pigs, and they easily made friends with everyone they met.

Wherever they went, they were given a warm welcome and never had to worry about where they would sleep.  But as summer drew to a close, they realized that people were starting to prepare their homes for winter.  The three little pigs decided that they too needed a home of their own to keep them safe and warm through the winter.

Peter, the first little pig, was the oldest of the three.  He decided to build a straw hut.  "It'll only take a day!   Then I'll go have fun and play,"  he sang enthusiastically.

The others disagreed.

"It's too fragile," they said disapprovingly, but Peter refused to listen (after all, he WAS the oldest by 3 whole minutes).

Patty Pig was the second little pig (born 3 minutes after Peter and 4 seconds before Penny).   She decided that a house of straw would be too cold during the winter (and that bugs might get in!)  So she went off in search of twigs and wood to build her house.

"Clunk!  Clunk!  Clunk!"   It took her two days to nail her house of wood together.  Patty finished, looked at her house and thought, "well..., it's a little wobbly and maybe it isn't my VERY best job...  But it's supposed to be warm this winter so it should do."

Penny quietly voiced her opinion that the house didn't look sturdy enough to stand up to wind, rain, snow (or bugs).  Peter teased that Patty had wasted a whole day searching for wood when she could have been having fun playing with him.  Patty turned and sang out, "It only took an extra day.   Now I can go have fun and play."

Penny Pig was the youngest of the three and being the youngest loved to play at least as much as Peter and Patty did.  But she remembered what her mommy and daddy had taught her growing up.

Her daddy always told her, "we don't expect you to be perfect Penny."

And her mommy always added, "we'll always be proud of you as long as you've done your very best job."

So Penny Pig sighed and thought,  "it will take time, patience and hard work to build a safe, warm, comfortable house.   I've never done it before and I'm a little nervous, but I'm going to do my very best job!"

Penny went to the library and took out some books about building houses.  She spent two whole days reading the books before she decided that a house of bricks would be the best choice.

Penny spent another whole day collecting supplies.   A day to lay the foundation.  Another to pour the cement.  Yet another to stack the bricks and four more to put on the roof and paint.  Just to make sure that she'd tried her best, she decided to take a few more days to build some cozy wooden furniture to put in her house of bricks.   By the time she was done her house, two weeks had passed and the leaves outside had taken on their autumn colours.

Penny looked at her little house with pride.   Sure, the chimney was a little crooked and the paint had dripped a bit here and there, but Penny knew that she'd done her very best job and was quite proud of what she'd accomplished.

Peter, Patty and Penny spent the next day playing.   The two older pigs teased Penny that she'd wasted the whole fall building her house (and Peter couldn't resist pointing out that even after all that work, Penny hadn't even managed to get the chimney on straight!)  But Penny was happy with the choices she'd made as she sat in front of her cozy fireplace that night.

Peter wasn't nearly as comfortable in his house of straw.  The cold night air crept in quickly.  Peter hadn't taken the time to build a bed so huddled in the corner on a mound of leftover straw.  As the sun rose the next morning, Peter was starting to wish that he'd spent a bit more time on his house.   As he pondered what he was going to use to cook breakfast with, Peter heard a knock on the door.

"Who's there?"  Peter asked...  It was awfully early for visitors.

Peter hadn't been the only one wondering about breakfast.  A big, bad, hungry wolf had wandered through the forest.  He hadn't eaten for awhile and a nice young piggy was just the kind of breakfast he was craving!

"Come out!" ordered the wolf, his mouth watering.  "I want to speak to you!"

Peter may have been a bit lazy, but he certainly wasn't dumb.  "I'd rather stay where I am,"  he replied.

"Come out now!" yelled the wolf fiercely.

"Not by the hair on my chin-y chin chin," teased Peter (after all, what could the wolf do about it).

"Then I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll bloooooow your house in!" threatened the wolf  who blew with all his might, right onto the house.  All the straw that Peter had heaped against some thin poles fell down in the great blast.

Peter dashed as fast as he could to his sister Patty's house.  Patty had heard the commotion.  She ran to the door, accidentally squishing a beetle that was sitting by her bed.  She bravely brushed the two spiders that had built webs inside the doorframe out of her way and pulled the door open for her brother.

The wolf ran after Peter and shouted "Come out and play with me!" just as the door slammed in his face.

"Not by the hair on our chin-y chin chins," replied Patty (almost as upset about all the bugs she had begun to notice scurrying around her floor as she was about the wolf).

"Then I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll bloooooow your house in!" yelled the wolf who blew with all his might, right onto the house.  The wooden house creaked and squeaked and then collapsed like a pack of cards.

Peter and Patty dashed out and were halfway to Penny's house before the last twig had hit the ground.   Penny urged them in, took one last look at the crooked chimney, crossed her fingers and slammed the door.

"Come out here, now!  I want my breakfast," growled the wolf, not bothering to pretend anymore.

"Not by the hair on our chin-y chin chins," replied Peter, Patty and Penny (her fingers still crossed tightly).

"Then I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll bloooooow your house in!" yelled the wolf who blew with all his might, right onto the house.

Nothing happened.

The wolf drew an even deeper breath and blew again.  And again!  But Penny Pig's house of bricks with the crooked chimney and drippy paint was her very best job and it would NOT fall down no matter how hard the wolf blew.

After all his huffing and puffing the wolf was even hungrier than he'd been to begin with and he was not about to give up.  He climbed carefully up a nearby ladder and scrambled onto the roof.  Before Peter, Patty and Penny knew what was happening, the wolf started to slide down the chimney!

"Yikes!" cried Peter.

"We're toast!" sobbed Patty.

"Bacon, actually!"  wailed Penny.

But slowly the three little pigs realized that the wolf had somehow gotten stuck before he had made it all the way down.  Understanding what had happened, Penny started to giggle nervously.  "I think he got caught in the crooked part of my chimney!"

Peter nodded with disbelief, jumped up and threw some wood onto the fireplace.  Patty grabbed the matches and started a fire which was soon roaring.  It didn't take long for the three little pigs to hear the anguished howl of the wolf as he scrambled back up the chimney.  The flames licked his hairy coat and his tail became a flaming torch.

"Never again!  Never again will I go down a chimney!"  he squealed, as he tried to put out the flames in his tail.   Then he ran away as fast as he could.

That very same day, Peter and Patty took out library books on how to build a brick house.   Penny did her best to give them some instruction and Peter showed his sisters how to put on paint without it getting drippy (after all, he WAS the oldest by 3 whole minutes).

The wolf did return once to roam in the neighbourhood, but when he caught sight of THREE crooked chimneys, he remembered the terrible pain of a burnt tail and he left for good.

Now safe and happy, Penny sang out to her brother and sister,  "No more working for today...  Come on let's go out to play!"

The fairy tale "Three Little Pigs" in Church Slavonic: philologist - LiveJournal

The Tale of the Three Pigs

At the time of it, the existence of Nif - nif, which is similar to pigs, and his two brothers are living with him, their own names are Naf- Naf and nuf-nuf, as if they were brothers of their pigs. Nif-Nif and Naf-Naf were holy fools, Nuf-Nuf was a pig, filled with wisdom. Living in a kinder country, even though the former grass and honey bees ate, not needing anything, conferring, saying: like we, good pigs, living in a good country, we don’t need imam, but we have nowhere to settle our neighbors, and all our estates. The imam is of age to give birth to wives and give birth to sons and daughters, but she has no shelter, nor an overnight stay at our houses. Let us make for ourselves three good tents, where we will dwell with our wives and children and with all our possessions. And there was strife among the brethren, as if every one said to make his own house according to his will. And not deciding how it is appropriate to create their own houses, each one went out to create as if thinking in himself. Having created Nif-Nif a bush from the tares, Naf-Naf from the goodness, and Nuf-Nuf from the stone, having created a house. nine0005

And it came to pass that these pigs always rested on their beds under the shelters of their houses, when the wolf came to that land, looking to plunder the estate, but they did not collect it and drink it from the cattle, but they did not shepherd it and did not recompense it. And take away these pigs, deciding in yourself to explain and. When the Wolf came to the barn of the day to the house of the weeds, Nif-Nif rested in it, not thinking about the fear of the mortal coming to him, dhnu very strongly on the weeds of the house of Nif-Nifov, and shook the walls of that house and collapsed, as if it didn’t interfere with the foundation on the stone , all the same from the chaff. Suddenly, the walls of the house are crushed, rising Nif-Nif from sleep and saying: “Oh, woe to me, as if I didn’t obey the exhortations of my brethren, who told me, it’s not appropriate to create a house from chaff! But because of my foolishness, do this, and what do I see and where do I run now? Having already opened its mouth to the wolf on the pig, the swine escaped to the limit of his brother Naf-Naf and the wolf drove him behind. And having risen Naf-Naf from his bed, as if he had heard the pushing of his brother, he opened it. Having entered the upper room, exclaim Nif-Nif with a voice, we order “Alas for me! Like a crafty wolf coming, ruin my weedy estate and now it is coming after me, looking to devour me! And Nif-Nif said to him: “Have you come to destroy me and me with you? But do not be horrified, as if my house was not made of chaff, and the wolf will not be able to live here.” Even the verbal ima, the wolf came, following the trail of Nif-Nif, having found a house, it was complicated out of courage. And the mind, like two pigs hiding in it, more embittered and valkah, dhnu very strongly on the house out of courage and shaking (the house). And dhnu paki, and shaking the walls and collapsed the house, like the house of Nif-Nifov. And the fear of that great swine was embraced, and it spewed out of the bush of the house, running from the wolf to the limit of Nuf-Nufov, very screaming, and grunting, like a swine byache. nine0005

Hearing the Nuf-Nuf noise, his brethren, running, made it, went to meet the ima. Having seen the flight of my brethren, I was terribly horrified and said the name at the meeting, “Why does he do something incomparable? If you eat buoys, but run away from the wolf, most of all, you should sit in your houses when the wolf comes ?!”

She rests him, as if you did not protect their houses from the wolf and how destroyed (the houses), how the flight made and the forces no longer have to hide from him. And the speech of Nuf-Nuf: “Will you enter under the roof of my house, or will I not brother you?” Suddenly, enter the pigs into the house and shut the doors of the house of Nuf-Nufov, who are made of stone, having come to the house of the wolf, having greedily and full of rage, devour these pigs; not reflecting in yourself, as if this house is made of stone, I breathe on it and there was nothing for the walls of the house, dhnu paki and paki.
