To want some answers about Peppa Pig and her universe?

For instance:
A) Are George and Richard Rabbit G&T? They've just set up Dinosaur World in George and Peppa's bedroom, with an upturned laundry basket as a volcano, a forest of toy trees and a river made of blue building blocks. They're not like any 18 month old I've ever seen!

B) Do you have no choice but to marry the only available instance of the other gender of your species in existence? How did Mrs Rabbit and Miss Rabbit decide who got to marry Mr Rabbit?

C) Why did Daddy and Mummy Pig call George George when it so definitely doesn't start with P? Did she not get shot down on a Baby Names thread for that one?

I had to watch same episode the next day and explain her another couple of times. Then she was happy with it...

FirstVix - Andy Hamilton is the voice of Dr Elephant the dentist smile

I love Peppa - this thread has made me smile lots!

Alexander Armstrong does loads of the voices. I like him.

I want to know what happens when Peppa and George are old enough to be eaten. Does mummy and daddy pig take them to the slaughterhouse, or is there an (as yet unseen) farmer that does that for them?

And what about all the other piglets from Peppa and George's litter? Did they get sold?

(Overly practical country type person hmm)

jaabaar - Thank you! Ds is obviously watching too much Peppa Pig...

Brian Blessed does Grampy Rabbit - "The sea, the sky" is fab, Catmint

My DP loves "She can't talk she's a fish" in the Goldie and the vet episode, the way Peppa says it and of course the fact that pigs and sheep etc can talk.

I love Delphine Donkey's dad, and the trunk of things he sends cos we don't have them (water, tomatoes [all said in French accent]).

Alexander Armstrong is Captain someone and Mr Wolf.

Andy Hamilton is Mr Elephant, the dentist.

There is only one Miss Rabbit (and her sister, Mrs Rabbit) who does all of the jobs. That is why there are episodes mentioning all the stuff she does - one where she injures her foot and has to get the other Peppaland folk to step in to cover her, and one where the Queen gives her a medal to recognise her efforts.

There are NOT lots of 'Miss Rabbits'. She works bloody hard, and that town would fall apart without her angry

I love this thread. These are the things I spend my time thinking about and I'm so pleased I'm not the only one!

TheRivieraKid Wed 24-Apr-13 09:22:15

I NEED to know what Mrs Fox does - I've only spotted her in one episode, the sports day one? I like to think she's a bit like Peggy from Enders...love Mr Fox the spiv and spiv son Freddie - "My Dad sells those in boxes of five"

PeppermintPasty Wed 24-Apr-13 09:35:22

Has anyone mentioned the goddess Madame Gazelle? She is fab, the Bing Bong song is tops. Especially for annoying ds who pretends, at 6, that he is too old and cool for PP, yet he watches it on the sly with his little sister.

Oh, and of late my dp has taken to loudly talking over me when I am giving him my orders for the day speaking, in the manner of Granpa Pig: "Yeessss Granny Pig. Noooo Granny Pig..." and so on. I'm not quite sure how to react to that....

Mummy Pig's job involves sending letters to people - some kind of spam mailshot 'work from home' gig.

Somewhere, maybe in classics, there is/was a brilliant thread that was basically Mummy Pig and Miss Rabbit having the mother of all arguments. T'was brilliant.

mmmerangue Wed 24-Apr-13 09:59:38

There is only one Miss rabbit, she wins an award for being the hardest-working person (sic) in the country.

~sings~ There's only one Miss Rabbit! (I luff her cause she is also Nanny Plum, who is the best character on kid's telly. I hate the rest of Peppa Pig, Ben and Holly is far superior even when they tell the same jokes.)

Why do Mummy and Daddy pig never tell Peppa off when she is naughty? They just laugh and fall over. I think they are drunkards.

fruitstick Wed 24-Apr-13 10:01:36

I always thought there were lots of Miss Rabbits. Was really disappointed when I saw the episode where she hurt her leg.

mrsXsweet Wed 24-Apr-13 10:07:45

I had to endure Madame gazelle's leaving party 10 times in a row yesterday. And what is with the camper van that is also a boat?
We have 108 episodes recorded on the TiVo box but I do wish they'd make some new ones and make them a bit longer so I could get something done. Alternatively I could try and teach dd to use the remote!

blackteaplease Wed 24-Apr-13 10:14:42

I may have imagined it but I am sure I have seen 2 different episodes for georges 2nd birthday.

Daddy pig is an architect. I don't like him, he is a buffoon and all mummy pig does is laugh at him indulgently. I would have left him by now.

TheThickPlottens Wed 24-Apr-13 10:15:38

How does Mummy Pig not tell Daddy Pig to shut his trap when going on about how to toss the pancake?
Her patience is worthy of a medal. I would love to be like her.

blackteaplease Wed 24-Apr-13 10:16:25

I have a question, whenever they have flashbacks to when the adults are children at the playgroup, where are uncle and aunty pig?

ChessieFL Wed 24-Apr-13 10:24:38

Why is Peppa called Peppa when all the other children have 'proper' names (Suzy, Emily, George etc).

I know that someone is now going to pop up telling me they know loads of children in real life called Peppa and therefore it is a proper name....

tigerlilygrr Wed 24-Apr-13 10:25:02

Mummy pig is married to David baddiel in RL!

LeonieDeSainteVire Wed 24-Apr-13 10:25:43

I love Peppa Pig!

Not a question just an observation but IMO the best episode is when Peppa and George go to Daddy Pig's work and the other animals doing boring jobs, rubber stamping, printing etc and then Daddy Pig does a complicated equation on his whiteboard - it just comes out of nowhere and makes me laugh every time. Alternatively I have just lost my marbles completely, DH thinks so and looks at me like hmm when I mention how funny it is. Also love the one with Mr Wolf and Daddy Pig in the boat with Mr Wolf saying 'Im so hungry' over and over and looking meaningfully at Daddy Pig smile.

For those whose DC have outgrown it you may be pleased to know that my DD loves it and has been known to watch it through choice of an evening - she's 14 btw grin

HugoBear Wed 24-Apr-13 10:30:19

My DH loves Peppa Pig just a little too much!

He keeps saying that theres people from his favourite sketch show (Absolutely) who do some of the voices.

He made me watch some Absolutely once and some of its funny, but lots of it is really strange.

AmberSocks Wed 24-Apr-13 10:36:28

how does peppa get away with being such a cheeky little git to her dad?

Pickles101 Wed 24-Apr-13 10:41:54

*There are lots of Miss Rabbits!!!
They all have different jobs but came from the same litter so look the same*

Ooh you bunch of fucking racists grin

LippyDiDooDah Wed 24-Apr-13 10:44:29

Leonie yay! My DD nearly 9 still loves Peppa Pig so I envisage many more years of watching them with her then grin DH also will watch a few episodes and finds them funny.

My fave episode has to be 'The Quarrel' where Suzy Sheep and Peppa fall out over a game they both think they won and the other one cheated. Mummy Pig says to Daddy Pig " Peppa and Suzy have fallen out" and Daddy replies " Oh dear" in his very patient voice and gets them to make friends at the end.

DH finds it hilarious when the say "Dig up the road" and the road gets dug up in seconds and put back again in seconds when someone wants to pass grin
