Doesn't have any great educational or developmental benefit but is still quite fun for younger children
What is it about this little lump of clay that means he has been doing the rounds for about 20 years but is still popular with children without the need for updating or rebranding? Pingu is a mischievous little penguin that lives in the Antarctic where he plays with his friends and family. There is no dialogue apart from the distinctive sounds they make and the individual episodes are very short. Maybe it is the simple nature of the piece that means it works for young children (and students) but Pingu is enjoyable and simply effective.
It is nicely comical in a physical way and, although not witty or clever, it is at least good clean fun that has no reason to aim for a cynical adult viewer as part of its presentation. It is a drawback that it doesn't really have any educational or developmental benefit to speak of, but then I suppose not everything does. The cheeky nature of the penguin may also not be to everyone's tastes as it is hardly that good an example for young children but it is entertaining nonetheless. Students seem to have latched onto it because of the weird noises and imaginative design but this is only in an ironic way and there isn't a lot here for adults.
Overall then an OK series of physical comedy shorts for children. It doesn't have any real benefit developmentally or as an educational tool but it is quite fun and there isn't anything really wrong with that.
