Canadian Bacon is the 17th episode in the Nightmare Ned TV series.



After having brought a piglet home, Ned tries to convince his parents if he can have a pet. While they discuss which animal Ned should have, his parents tell him a pig is not meant for a pet but for a meal. So Ned has a nightmare (which begins as a nice dream) that he and his pet run away from home to live on a farm, where it's shown the pig has a family. But while Ned enjoys living with a family of pigs, he later discovers that they are fattening him up to eat him for Christmas.


  • This is the first time a nightmare had a sequence for almost a year
    • Granted that while the nightmare lasted for a year, it was only a few hours by the time Ned work up.
  • As of this episode, the Needlemeyer's have a pet pig.
