Pig That Looked Round

Product ID: 1390

Searching for a low cost fun trick for your new children’s or adults’ shows? Then you won’t do better than Pig That Looked Round – based on our effect Rabbit Twist, which has stood the test of time since the 1960’s and Sid Lorraine’s ‘Pig That Turned Around’.

Offering to show the very first magic trick you performed as a four-year old child, you show a comical looking line drawing of a pig that may have been drawn by a child of such a young age, printed in white with a dark brown background on a card approx 7.5” x 5.5” and laminated with bound edges for long life.

After the laughter that this simple line drawing always provokes, you explain that you drew this at play school.

Your teacher pointed out that the straight lines made the pig look too square and suggested that you made it look round. So you decided to do so by magic and passing it behind your back, when the picture is next shown the head has turned around and is looking to its rear, as you explain that you have made the pig look round!

More magic, passing the picture behind your back and the head is looking forwards once again.

You can repeat this as many times as you wish but the children are not fooled even the little ones know that you are just turning the picture around behind your back and they tell you so in no uncertain terms!

But you insist that it is all done by magic – so the children demand to see the other side of the card. Now follows the usual “turn it around” business – which you of course misunderstand and simply rotate the picture in a circle without showing the opposite side. “Show us the back”, cry the children – so you show them YOUR back, still keeping the rear of the picture concealed!

Finally you do get the message that the children wish to see the opposite side of the card, so slowly and reluctantly you show the opposite side – which proves to be a cute and colourful looking round-faced pig that you claim to have drawn when you were a little older, bringing this hilarious and appealing routine to a suitable climax!

The effect is not just confined to your children’s shows; adults will find themselves caught up in this effective and novel routine, which is both amusing and amazing to all age groups.
