Helmut was born in Oppennau, a charming village situated in the Bavarian mountains. Contrary to what one might think, Helmut is elegant… and very clean. Every day he maintains himself and his domain for hours on end. Despite his stubborn air, Helmut is extremely clever. He can also be quite deceitful. For example, he loves to push big stones discreetly down the hill, which tumble down hitting hard the shins of hikers trekking by. As no adult would ever contemplate in suspecting a pig of such treachery, he never gets caught. Therefore, playing tricks on adults has become his favourite activity. And of course, this greatly amuses all the children in the village!
