In Indonesia, few stories featuring pig-faces have been "altered" (just like
you described, David). It happened several years ago but eventually after a
few of those, they dont do that now. One can say that they were trying
things out, the results like you said, David wasnt too pretty as the
pig-faced characters has been made loking like a pig but not truely so it
became an unspecified creature.
