Peppa Pig craze: everything about the most loved cartoon
Aired in 180 countries across the world, Peppa Pig arrived in Italy in 2011 and it immediately obtained a cult following. Episodes follow the protagonist, Peppa, a little anthropomorphised pig and her family and animal friends. They last just a few minutes, finish suddenly and feature simple illustrations and colours, so as to be more appealing to the very youngest audiences.
Peppa’s life is not particularly adventurous, but it’s very similar to every child’s life: she goes to pre-school, she plays with friends and with her little brother George, and she learns something new every day. It’s easy to see why Peppa Pig is so beloved by children: the programme recreates a simple world where the youngest among us can recognise themselves and find themselves at the centre of Peppa’s daily little, surprising, discoveries.
What are the key characters that this little four-year-old is surrounded by? First of all is her family: Daddy Pig, who loves pretend games and playing fooseball, Mummy Pig, who works on the computer and bakes delicious treats, and Peppa’s little brother George, a shy little pig with a passion for dinosaurs. And what shall we say of the legendary Peppa? Friendly and curious, she’s anything but shy… in fact she’s a right little chatterbox! She has fun playing with her best friend Suzy Sheep, jumping in muddly puddles and having little fights.
Each episode features various other characters: Grandpa Pig and Grandma Pig, Grandpa Rabbit, Madame Gazelle – the village teachers – Zoe Zebra, Danny Dog, Candy Cat. In between friends, shopkeepers, and parents, Peppa’s whole village is home to various animal species living side by side harmoniously.
While having human traits, the characters also reveal their animal side, starting all conversations with their animal noise, making everything that much more fun.
I bet that, if you have little children, these are all things that you know very well… But do you know about all the new Peppa Pig toys? Let’s find out together!
