To think Mummy Pig is a little stuck up..?

Absolutely love Peppa Pig, it's very funny - for adults and kids. Just watched 'The Market' and was a bit shocked at how snobby Mummy Pig was towards Mr Fox. "Our house doesn't need a singing plastic fish". Said with a lot of condemnation and middle class snobbery...

To be fair on daddy pig (there’s a sentence I never thought I’d say) he doesn’t object to the pinkness. He is concerned that his team are playing in white.

My neighbour just caught me doing Duggee’s rain dance in my living room blush🙈

Never watched Peppa Pig (though I might have to now) but surely it's "Load-bearing" rather than low-bearing?

I think Daddy Pig is emotionally abused.

I know Elmer dp has heard my rant about it million times and so avoids that episode when it appears in the Netflix queue. He doesn't like it either tbf to him.

Movingtoplanetclanger that football episode is shocking, I couldn’t believe it when I first saw it!!

Brilliant thread. I actually get quite happy when DS asks for Peppa over other shows (though I do have a soft spot for Fireman Sam).

Personally I'm a fan of Mummy Pig. I think she shows a lot of restraint and patience!

Daddy pig is a total cocklodger. Remember, that time when he forgot to go to work because he thought Thursday was Saturday-wanker.

Mummy pig has anger issues but I can't really blame her. She does seems slightly snobby too.

Peppa is a cow and a fat shamer. I quite like her friendship with Suzy though, pretty realistic.

PP and blown and Ben and Holly have issues with gender and class stereotypes. I keep waiting for the elf revolution.

By far the worst Peppa pig is when daddy pig believes his balls will fall off if he plays football in a pink shirt though. Fuck off!

(Did I mention I'm not daddy pigs biggest fan?)

Mr bull always concerns me - why does he rock up at all the nursery events but does not have a child of his own!

She is such a brat.

Her parents are awful.

Her grandparents are rich and snobby.

I have got DS onto Ben and Holly which is marginally better, if you can get over the sexist and classist undertones (I can't, usually)...

I love how mummy pig is the competent one doing DIY and speaking french etc whilst daddy ‘I’m an expert at this’ pig is totally useless at everything grin Good strong female role model for girls

I stopped DD watching it. Its awful!

Peppa is a brat, her parents are useless and the voices and theme are more annoying than Mr Tumble!

Peppa is a brat that needs to be bacon

Smelborp Mon 11-Mar-19 00:06:10

@TheOxymoron it is enjoyable!

I also liked ‘desert island where Grampy rabbit makes a mark every time he thinks about cheese.

My fave character is a close call between Mr. Wolf and Mrs. Hamster the vet.

Mr.Wolf's voice is so sexy blush

'Your child must be 3 days old, if you love Peppa fucking pig???'

Or just don't watch that much TV?

Peppa Pig is best enjoyed as an occasional treat. Too much and it does become wearing.

I assumed Miss Rabbit has a backstory, maybe gambling or addiction, to need all of those jobs. Hadn’t considered zero hours

I thought there was more than one Miss Rabbit. I'm sure there's at least two, the idea being that rabbits breed lots. So it's a different one doing a different job.

I used to hate Peppa but I tolerate it far more now. My health visitor also told me that the speech patterns used are supposed to be better for helping children speak than other shows, but she may just have been making me feel better after having my second baby and sticking the first one in front of the TV.

Definitely agree that the whistling episode is the best. I also quite like it when Peppa and Suzy fall out and refuse to apologise to each other first. Unfortunately my 2yo now likes to say 'we're not best friends any more' if I do something she doesn't like grin

The best one is when the parrot goes to get granny pig for help and calls her a silly old bird

OstrichRunning Sun 10-Mar-19 22:48:08

Totally agree re Paw Patrol it's so completely charmless by comparison. Peppa Pig is lovely as cartoons go imo

The best peppa pig is the Scottish one on YouTube
