He enjoys rolling around in his own filth, but Arnold, the pet pig from Green Acres, is undoubtedly the most talented animal on this list. Arthur could knock on doors, paint, watch TV, predict the weather, and attend school. Most of this was obviously done through camera trickery, but that didn’t stop him from appearing more intelligent and creative than the entire cast of Jersey Shore is now.

Fred and Doris Ziffel treated Arnold like the son they never had, and because of that, he had a cushier life than any of us could imagine. Meanwhile, Arnold was probably just happy to not end up on the family’s breakfast menu.
