Why are their faces side on? Why do they live so far from one another? Who's parents are granny and grandpa pig? Why is there a mr bull and a Mrs cow, are they married? Does mr rabbit ever get confused as to which Miss/mrs rabbit is his wife?
And why do all the animals begin with the same letter (peppa, pig. Pedro, pony. Susie, sheep) except George.

Aaaaaaahhhhh ill child sad

There's only 1 Mrs Rabbit, but she has many jobs.

The people who created it said they made the houses on top of hills as that's how children draw their houses.
Granny and grandpa pig are mummy pig's parents.
Not sure about Mr Bull and Mrs Cow.
Miss Rabbit has the jobs.
Mrs Rabbit is her sister and has the

Cousin Chloe and Baby Alexander are pigs without alphabet names.

Daddy Pigs brothers spiky beard really disgusts me.

And how come Delphine Donkeys phone call asking if she can come stay happens when her train is about to pull in? Talk about presumptive!

Side on:
Same as most cartoons, they look bloody weird straight on.

Distance e from each other:
I can't say I've noticed that? Tbh.

Granny and grandad pig:
Granny pig is mummy pigs mum but not daddy pigs. Grandad pig is daddy pigs dad but not mummy pigs. They got together after their respective partners died and got turned into Walls.

Mr Bull and Mrs Cow:
Mr Bull is obviously gay and Mrs Cow is his best friend, they often go to Discotheques together but they're not together. Though they do have a pact that if they're still both single by the time its time to go to the butchers that they'll get married.

Confused Mr Rabbit:
All miss rabbits are his wives.

George not having a P name:
George is a Gloucestershire Old Spot which is a type of pig.

Happy to help.

That spikey beard is disgusting! The episodes about baby Alexander are amoung my favourite.

They all live on separate hills because their local council, where daddy pig works flexitime, has hardcore planning restrictions and mandatory tiny class sizes. Council has relaxed its policies, however, on cars, boats, cranes and automated camper vans roaming freely, and courts investment from TV production companies (Mr Potato Head).

I didn't realise there was a Mrs Cow..?!

Verticalvenetianblinds Wed 02-Nov-16 22:17:52

Yes pinkie !!
That has cheered me up, didn't realise mr bull was gay, but the ymca impression makes sense now

Verticalvenetianblinds Wed 02-Nov-16 22:18:26

Mrs cow is part of the mummy fire fighters team

PeppaTheFirst Wed 02-Nov-16 23:02:04

Is anyone else waiting for the episode when Mr Fox shouts, 'this time next year we'll be millionaires!!'

Children draw their houses on top of hills?

Mine don't. Should I be worried?

BaronessBomburst Wed 02-Nov-16 23:20:28

The best episode ever is when Mr Wolf asks Daddy Pig if his house is made out of bricks. Daddy Pig replies "Yes, so don't even think about it!"
DS and I dissolve into fits of giggles everytime.

I heard recently that autistic children are mostly likely to be drawn towards peppa pig, why is that.?

NapQueen Wed 02-Nov-16 23:37:57

Oh yes Baroness I love that part!

And when he gets caught sniffing around Grandpa Pigs chickens.

OldBootNewBoots Wed 02-Nov-16 23:47:53

The lighthouse one is my favourite 'I've got tales to tell' 'how long have you been here?' 'Since tuesday'. My 2 yo is obsessed, don't nearly all dc go through an obsessive peppa phase?

Blackbird82 Thu 03-Nov-16 00:02:54

How do we know for sure if Granny & Grandpa Pig are Mummy Pigs parents? Have I missed an episode in which this is clarified?!

NapQueen Thu 03-Nov-16 00:04:02

Doesn't peppa pig try on some stuff in granny pigs attic that her mum used to try on.

Lovewineandchocs Thu 03-Nov-16 00:14:08

Yes, and they play "Birdie Birdie woof woof" which Granny and Grandpa pig say that Mummy Pig always used to play as a child.

NapQueen Thu 03-Nov-16 00:15:06

We need to get out more.

Verticalvenetianblinds Thu 03-Nov-16 15:42:21

Today has been slightly less peppa pig, mixed it up with Ben and holly which I'm finding slightly less irritating! At least some of my questions have been answered.

EdmundCleverClogs Thu 03-Nov-16 15:45:35

Mr Bull is obviously gay

Thank you! I told my partner this, just told me I'm over invested in a children's cartoon hmm.

pinkie1982 Thu 03-Nov-16 15:50:54

My 16m DS is obsessed too. Wants it on in the background no matter what we are doing, playing, drawing, eating. He will bring me the remote if I put something else on, turn it off or the adverts come on.

That's all.

Would anyone like to provide an Eternal-Sunshine-of-the-Spotless-Mind type service, whereby you can erase all children's programming from your brain at the end of each day? It would free up memory space for stuff like Beowulf, the twelve times table and my PIN number, but it would also make viewing each nerve-gratingly repetitive episode less of a fucking chore.
