I avoided it for ages because I hate the fact they have penis heads and heard it was really annoying too. I finally watched an episode with dd and omg I think I love it more than she does. I love the way mummy pig and daddy pig aren't perfect and I actually find myself laughing at some of the episodes hmm The one with the grandparents and the lorry of gnomes grin And the ice puddle when peppa fell over muahhaha.

AIBU to like it more than dd seems to?

Slightly mad article, reminding me of classic mumsnet line, the fifties called and they want their attitude back. Peppa seems just like any normal little girl with a normal family, well apart from them all being pigs of course. As for a carrot and a potato shacking up together well...

I am so confused by that article that I can't even comment on it <brain melts>

In other news, we saw Grampy Rabbit for the first time today and enjoyed Brian Blessed's voice! I think dd may be addicted to Peppa now as she's stood in front of the TV a few times today saying "telly...peppa...where you?" grin

I bloody love Peppa, not to mention Ben and Holly. Particular favourites in our house are the episode where Mr Bull breaks his tea pot, and his mates try to fix it ("I've got some cement boss!" "And I've got the rivet gun!") and the Ben and Holly alien invasion one (Alien, of the useless king "What a great and wise leader!" Wise Old Elf, drily, "Yes, we're very lucky...").

All Im going to add is 'lets dig up the road'!!! A family fave! Also ds2 loves the made up words 'mikamaka boo ba boo'. Makes us laugh everytime.

That article has got me all confused

Blackhole I believe PhilDavies1 was referring to his family reading the article with him.

DS loves it! When he does anything now he always says, "I am a bit of an expert at this!" So good!

I just went to the live show today!

It was great! my 22 month old was a bit bemused but we had to buy a Mr. Potato afterwards!

blackhole Phil Davies is the producer of Peppa Pig and Mark and Nev are two of the writers. Not sure who Jemima is though - sorry Jemima!

I feel a bit giddy being in the presence of Peppa royalty although I admit that article did confused me.

I like Mr Bull best. The episode when he is drinking his tea out of a china cup and has a china teapot that he breaks then takes to Miss Rabbits shop to be mended is great. 'Ah a bull in a china shop' then at the end they mend the pothole outside the shop 'we'll dig up the road'

Ha ha I hadn't read your posts Chris and Emski before I wrote the above post.

BlackholesAndRevelations Sat 14-Dec-13 23:11:55

Ah I see!! Well then mr Davies, you are a genius!!

My dd and I were quoting Peppa in the car earlier- "I woke up this morning, the sea was still there, and so was the sky...."

We love Peppa Pig, especially Miss Rabbit. The Delphine Donkey episode is fabulous. [Daddy Pig hands phone to Mummy Pig "it's all just gibberish!" Mummy Pig- "They are speaking French, Daddy Pig"] then there's the bit where Delphine's Daddy has packed "a few things you do not 'ave over 'ere, like cheese, tomatoes, waterrr ..."

Have just discovered Ben and Holly too.
