I love Peppa Pig. She deserves it.
 
2014-07-09 09:22:25 AM  
My daughter watches this. The pigs are a little freaky-deaky, but it's a good show and she enjoys it.

I did find out if you feed a child pork and they ask "what is this?", don't point to Peppa Pig.

My little man likes Peppa too. One of the few children's shows I can stand.

Someone needs to drown Caillou in a muddy puddle.
 
2014-07-09 09:25:12 AM  
It's one I can tolerate.  Not nearly as annoying as some of the other crap on.
 
2014-07-09 09:25:31 AM  
My Grandsons like it but not quite as much as Bubble Guppies.

WHAT TIME IS IT?
 
2014-07-09 09:27:00 AM  
My 4 year old loves it. Books and the show on YouTube.

Not surprised.

More surprised it's not bigger than it is already.

Peppa Pig is awesome.

My kids all say "ready, steady, go" (instead of "ready, get set") because of this show.

That or a hair dryer. Their deep British accents amuse me. My brother's fiance's kid watches this all the time and I sit there and wander...What does the dad do for work? Are they on welfare?

I know it's a kid show but as an adult I see things quite differently.

My 5 year old loves Peppa as well.

Fun fact:  the voice of Daddy Pig was also the voice of The Mentor in the old Dungeon Keeper games.

I don't know that I've seen Peppa Pig other than in passing, so I can't comment on whether it's any good or not. But at least it's not the other pig show. I can't remember what it's called, but they all look like they have Glasgow smiles. Freaks me right the fark out.
 
2014-07-09 09:30:55 AM  
Can't stand Peppa Pig. She is a horrible role model for little kids. She is mean to her little brother and rude to grown ups, and is never faced with any consequences or even a reprimand for it.

At the age it's aimed at, kids are very impressionable and will esaily copy things they see on TV, especially if it's one of their favourite characters doing it.

We had to ban it after son #1 started copying her behaviour towards son #2.

Anyways, Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom is soooo much better!

Kids have all kinds of adventures these days, Sir. This isn't the dark ages.
 
2014-07-09 09:34:54 AM  
But Peppa's small screen reign has not been free of controversy. She's been accused of spreading a "weird feminist line" and also encouraging children to indulge in bad behaviour such as answering back and jumping in puddles.

What will provocateur Peppa do next?


Let's go see where all these other pigs are going. It's a nice, shiny building with fun walkways. I wonder what's right through this door? OW! I've been stunned with a sharp blow to my skull. Now, my hind legs are chained and I'm lifted off the ground. I don't know if this is fun. What are you going to do with that knife, sir? Gag. Gasp. Bleed.

Some type of Engineer - one of the episodes was "kids at work day" type thing, Daddy had some equations that he said were to determine load bearing or some such...  Sorry for lack of detail, but I try to tune it out.  My 3 year old has given up Dora, Sophia the First, Bubble Guppies, etc. and only wants to watch Peppa all day long....  I kinda just tune it out and read.
 
2014-07-09 09:37:35 AM  
That show is annoying as all hell. The only thing worse is Dora.

limeyfellow: I did find out if you feed a child pork and they ask "what is this?", don't point to Peppa Pig.


my 4 year old son, with whom i've watched and enjoyed peppa pig, calls pork "chicken", despite the numerous times i've insisted they're different animals. i give up and say "as long as you're eating it, call it whatever you like", since he's fairly picky and eats too much candy (like many 4 year olds). great thing is he loves stuff like peas and beans, and hummus!

Flashlight = torch

British pronunciations of words galore.

You might think I stole my kids from an English family.

Way more tolerable than other crap though. Kai Lan had an episode that taught that it was wrong to play musical chairs because somebody loses, so I made them stop watching that. Most other programs just sound like nails on a chalk board.

Bubble Guppies and SuperWhy in the robertus household. She'll watch Peppa Pig if it's on, but only requests B.G. and S.W.

/We try not to think too hard about SuperWhy.
//Whyatt is kind of an asshole.

3 year old and 5 year old have loved Peppa for years.  Beats Caillou.  He's a whiny little biatch.

You laugh, but a few years passed and now we are seeing an influx of unaccompanied minors crossing the border.

Coincidence? I think not!

My daughter loves this show. I, frankly, think the daughter pig is a bit of a douche, but whatever.

And to whoever said caillou needs to be drowned? farking yes. I hate that farking whiny twat. Most kid shows don't bother me, because I have to watch them all the time. Something about that little bald fark enrages me, though.
 
2014-07-09 09:54:34 AM  
My 3-year-old taught herself to use the voice search on the iPad to get to Peppa Pig more efficiently.  It has lately been eclipsed by Paw Patrol, but she still watches some Peppa often.

None of the kids have ever watched Caillou.  I've prohibited it just in case, since all the adults I know want that cartoon child dead.
 
2014-07-09 09:56:44 AM  
$20 for the muddy puddle kit was a rip off,  it was just a bag of dirt and a bottle of water.

very disappointed.

Pro Tip: Caillou is bearable if you imagine that his Mommy and Daddy are hardcore, bisexual swingers. Try it...one of them is always meeting an "old friend" and sending Caillou off to play.

i used to think caillou was ok when my son was 2 and 3 years old...i just paid attention a couple months ago to the theme song and realized caillou is 4, and now i've compared everything i see on the show to my son. caillou is a whiney childish pussy compared to my son. and i'm not the kind of dad who is trying to endoctrinate my son with a macho toughguy attitude...i'm definitely not that way myself...but i just always thought that kid was more like 2 than 4
 
2014-07-09 09:58:40 AM  
My 7 month old loves it. Simple animation, lots of colors.Sadly as a man I've come to watch Care Bears, My little pony and Mickey mouse clubhouse.


However my daughter also loves watching my mountain biking edits. I'll watch these ridiculous shows a few minutes a day with her if it means she grows up to love mountain biking like Dad :)

Jerry Falwell thinks that Peppa is gay.

Salt and Pepa's here and we're in effect... Ah push it real good...
 
2014-07-09 10:08:17 AM  
my girls both love this (6 & 3), and it's harmless. Peppa can be a bit of a douche, but by the end of each tiny episode they've nearly always have corrected whatever behavior was considered peppa being bad.

I've never let them watch Caiju or Calliou or whatever the fark that shiat is. It's horrible.

/also, I'll watch the shiat out of bubble guppies.
 
2014-07-09 10:08:47 AM  
Peppa has taught my 3 yr old son that you must wear boots when jumping in muddy puddles so she isn't all that bad. We do not allow Cailou here either.
 
2014-07-09 10:08:53 AM  
My son's 20 months old and the only two shows he will watch are Sesame Street and My Little Pony: FiM, which he asks for as "Elmo?" and "Ponies?" respectively. I've seen Peppa Pig - one of my nieces is addicted - and something about their faces just freaks me out.

Unlike a lot of my friends' children, I couldn't get him to spend much time looking at a screen if I wanted to, though. Mostly he just wants to go outside and pick flowers and find bugs (He gives both to momma) and "help" me work on the car/motorcycle/whatever. I'm good with that.

2014-07-09 10:11:30 AM  
really?  the snorting is gross and the "british" accents are annoying.  luckily, my daughter finds this show to be boring.

would rather watch a cartoon about the geico gecko.
