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...

My 3 children (all between 5 and 11) regularly revert back to Peppa Pig, then we have to watch it for days and days until they’ve every episode again. I don’t think they ever grow out of it 😩.

Funnily though, the eldest understands all the “in” jokes for adults now, so she’s seeing PP through brand new eyes.

DGS (2) has developed a passion for PP - especially George and Mr Dinosaur

If you're ever travelling anywhere near Hatfield, make sure you take him to see the Mr Dinosaur roundabout! With a top-notch diagram like that, I'm assuming that the head of the Herts road-planning dept is a MNer grin

I still remember the horrible day ds asked to watch peppa... it was a very upsetting conversation for me 😂😂 thank the lord he now likes ben and holly and fireman sam instead of the bratty wee piggy who would make a good bacon roll grin

The best episode is when peppa hangs up on Suzy sheep! Because she can whistles

I miss Peppa Pig. Paw Patrol is awful in comparison.

Things have really moved on with Peppa Pig since mine watched it!!

*yes

@DravenRainrix Yrs! Halloween episode! She has NO reflection! Very funny!

@PaintBySticker Ben and Holly is awful! The Fairies treat the Elves like peasants and are really bloody obnoxious. It has representations of social class problems and some pretty lax writing, some of which could be flipped easily to have racist undertones.

Just like everyday sexism, little shitty cartoons subtly drill in horrid outdated attitudes but because it's Fairies and Elves it's ok confused

I miss peppa pig, the Christmas episode with the tree is my favorite one.

Fiveredbricks Sun 10-Mar-19 20:02:54

Yabu for liking peppa bloody pig... confused But maybe that makes me stuck up?

All the counties fighting in the sandbox is the best episode ever grin

That brat pig made ds behave like a brat. She is banned in this house.

My 3 year old copies how Peppa speaks a lot. She says "I'm not doing that ANY more. Hm" and pouts and crosses her arms exactly the way Peppa does.
It's popular in America too and there was a thing on twitter the other day with parents saying their kids are starting to talk with a British accent.

transmute! He transmutes their low bearing tangents!!

Daddy Pig is a twat.

But the Elephant family are complete arseholes.

Love this thread. My ds loves Peppa pig. My fav episode is the one with baby Alexander. Peppa is a spoilt brat though and I don't understand why some animals are in the zoo but some are not. Why is a hamster allowed to be a vet but a tortoise is a pet? Poor Daddy pig gets bullied a lot. Love the episode where Peppa sends a drawing to mr potato of daddy sat on the couch.

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

Madame gazelle is amazing

No no, Madame gazelle is a vampire...
Tue bing bing song is her way of lulling people into slumber so she can feed upon their blood ..

OstrichRunning Sun 10-Mar-19 19:39:07

If Daddy Pig is an architect though, why does he say his job is to 'take numbers and calculate their low-bearing tangents', or something like, that in the episode where Peppa and George visit his office? Been vaguely bothered by this for past year -- because I no longer have a life--

Loving this thread!

SeamstressfromTreacleMineRoad Sun 10-Mar-19 19:33:15

DGS (2) has developed a passion for PP - especially George and Mr Dinosaur. We were watching it the other day when DGD (6) said in a considered way, 'Grandma, Peppa Pig is really boring isn't it?' grin

I'm afraid that my eyes narrowed like Mummy Pig's as I said through clenched teeth, 'You never noticed that before..??' hmm

cookit but it's 'plastic oak' furniture! grin

I like the wolves moving next door but my favourite episode is the zoo one.
