The latest addition to the welter of imported Japanese animated series (”Pokémon,” ”Yu-Gi-Oh!,” etc.) arrives courtesy of — go figure — executive producers Bob and Harvey Weinstein. It’s Tokyo Pig (ABC Family), a wild, incomprehensible, but not unenjoyable mishmash about a boy named Spencer and his magic pig, Sunny. ”Tokyo” features visuals that are at once frenetically busy and crudely drawn. Occasionally the action stops for musical numbers in which Sunny dances against a backdrop of disembodied pig snouts. (Yes, you read that right.) Typical bit of dubbed dialogue: ”What in the wiggly world have I created now?”
