I'm guessing it might be from some sort of adaptation of Animal Farm. You know, that political satire with some pigs that form a corupt government in a farm setting.

It looks like it might be from the silent era.

That image/avatar is super creepy. But for some reason, I can't stop looking at it.

I was wondering how the mouth and such were moved while the "pig" moved around, but I see the person inside took their left arm out to control the face (pre-animatronics!)

Not a bad suit for 1907, despite the hole in the head where the hat goes.

Pretty impressive for being 102 years old. Having said that, the part at the end when he flicks his tongue out is downright nightmarish.

102 years have gone by and that pig still looks more realistic than the aliens in the Avatar trailer!

Ditto. It's been bothering me for days. At least now I know who the sonofabitch is that inspired Groucho.
