Pingu is the cutest penguin on Earth!
24 December 1998 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Pingu is a young penguin from the South Pole. He lives with his mother and father-the local postman and younger sister, Pinga. Pingu just loves to play, but he is rather mischievous. When he's not playing he likes to help his father with the post. Like most little sisters, Pinga never misses a chance to tease Pingu. But they still enjoy playing together sometimes. Robby the Seal is one of Pingu's best friends. Whether they're fishing or just playing hide and seek, they always have great adventures. Pingu teaches children lessons of life. In each episode the benefits of co-operation, and good behaviour are stressed. The negative consequences of greediness, teasing and disobediance are explained to younger viewers through Pingu's actions. I highly recommend that you watch Pingu - he appeals to all age groups - from children, who like the animations (and the trouble that Pingu gets up to) to teenagers and adults, who can appreciate the pathos and humour in the series.
