Peppa Pig

Peppa Pig

"Peppa Pig" is a UK animated television seriesproduced by Contender Entertainemnt.Peppa Pig is a children's show that consists of many different episodes that keep your children entertained and educated.

Peppa's family consists of Daddy Pig, Mummy Pig, Peppa, and her little brother George. Daddy Pig is a bit bumbling and eats too much - "Daddy's big tummy" is a frequent source of jokes - while Mummy Pig is far more sensible and practical than Daddy. There are also Grandpa and Granny Pig - it was unclear whether they were the parents of Mummy Pig or Daddy Pig until the episode "Granny and Grandpa's Attic", which seemed to indicate they were Mummy Pig's parents. Peppa also has an Uncle (who is Daddy Pig's older brother), Auntie and two cousins, Chloé (who is older than Peppa) and baby Alexander. Peppa's favourite toy is her Teddy, while George's is "Mr Dinosaur," although he can only say "Dine-saw." Peppa and (later) George go to a playgroup run by Madame Gazelle, and as well as Peppa and George, there are many other anthropomorphic animals that visit playgroup.

The characters all wear clothes, live in houses, and drive cars, but still display some characteristics of the animals on which they are based. Peppa and her family snort like pigs during conversations and also like to jump in muddy puddles. The other animals also make their respective appropriate noises when they talk, with some exhibiting other characteristics, such as the Rabbit family's fixation with carrots. The rabbits are also the sole exception to the rule of human-like habitation, in that they live in a burrow in a hill, although it does have windows. Each building is on an individual hill, isolated from other buildings.

The show features the voices of some members of the "Absolutely" Scottish comedy group, as well as character actors, veteran voice artistes, and children. In the episode "The Dentist", Dr Elephant the dentist is voiced by Andy Hamilton, who was also Bob the dentist in animated series Bob and Margaret.

The first series of 52 five-minute episodes aired on Five in 2004, and had its American premiere as part of Cartoon Network's Tickle-U preschool television programming block on August 22, 2005, and Noggin In Dec 2007/Jan 2008, re-dubbed with American voices. In the United Kingdom, it can also be seen on Nick Jr., the same with Portugal, Italy, Benelux, Scandinavia and Australia. In Taiwan, the show can be seen on Playhouse Disney.

The second series of 52 episodes began on Five on Monday 4 September 2006, with Cecily Bloom replacing Lily Snowden-Fine as Peppa, amongst other cast changes. A ten-minute special - "Peppa's Christmas" - is due for DVD release in the UK in November 2007 (see below).


The episode "Mummy Pig at Work" received "The Cristal for best TV production" at Annecy International Animated Film Festival in June 2005.

At the 10th British Academy Children's Film and Television Awards (BAFTA) on Sunday 27 November 2005, "Mummy Pig at Work" also won the "Pre-School Children's Animation" award. []

Welsh-language version

:Title : "Peppa Pinc"

The Welsh language version is shown on the Welsh language channel S4C and is usually part of the Planed Plant Bach programme for young children.

The Welsh word for Pig is 'mochyn' therefore it seems 'pinc' was chosen for alliterative purposes and to fit the theme song. Daddy Pig and Mummy Pig are known as 'Dadi Mochyn' and 'Mami Mochyn'.
