This 1907 dance routine between a lady and a guy in a pig costume was probably based on a Vaudeville performance. They dance together for a while and then the pig is embarrassed when his clothes come off. They bow to the audience and go backstage behind the curtain.
But the kicker is at the end (Skip directly to 2:00) when a closeup of the pig's face shows him grimacing, waggling his ears, and sticking out his tongue, which is delightfully creepy (Link to YouTube). Thanks, Mel!
