Happy pig is here as a counterbalance to the Capitalist Pig. He's clockwork (you can just see the key under his tummy) and when you wind him up and let go of his heavy wire tail it begins to rotate. It's a little off balance; he's made of very light plastic; and as a result, he starts dancing. You need to be more than usually down in the dumps not to smile or even to laugh out loud. I bought him in a Glasgow toy-shop more than 40 years ago.
