He is wearing a dark blue jacket, white shirt, yellow bow tie, red and white striped pants, blue socks, and brown shoes. A white glove covers his proper left hand. His other glove, glasses, top hat, and a red book are in the air, and a red umbrella lies on the ground under the pig. An orange dog is behind the pig on the road.
