Pingu rocks!
11 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pingu is a *very* refreshing break from the (many, many, many!) more mundane children's shows currently on the air. Pingu himself is an irreverent, irrepressible little fellow who relentlessly does his own thing (and often takes the heat from his parents for it). In fact, Pingu is so confident and independent that American audiences might have a hard time swallowing it.

In addition to shrugging off parental objections to his activities, Pingu sometimes quarrels with his friends (I'm talking about rolling-around-in-the-snow, knock-down/drag-outs here), and is not afraid of a bit of "biological" humor.

These things are, however, a part of the charm. If you are looking for good, edgy children's programming, Pingu is the way to go.

Hey, everyone make nice by the end of the episode! Go on...check it out!
