The original hand written lyrics to the song dated 4/24/89 and written on 2 yellow legal pad pages with the title "The 3 LTL' PIGS...", showing changes and corrections were sold by Bill Manspeaker in 2012.
The song's claymation music video received regular rotation on MTV, and in 1993 it was certified gold by the RIAA. "Three Little Pigs" was notable for being the first known music single to debut only in video form; when the music video was first shown on MTV, fans could buy the song on videotape, but not on CD. In 1993, however, the single was finally released in CD form.
Two versions of the song exist; the only change being the lyrics as to what the second Little Pig was doing. In the censored/modified version, the lyric was "He was kind of stokin'/spent most of his days in the sun just soakin'". The original lyric was "He was kind of stokin'/spent most of his day just a ganja smokin'". Clearly the attempt to remove the marijuana reference was there, although the video does not edit "pot culture" references in this part of the song.
