I am 20 and I love Pingu.
29 June 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

When I was 9, Pingu used to air on Cartoon Network. I found it quite meaningless back then and usually waited for it to get over (not a long wait, each episode is just five minutes long) before a show that I enjoyed watching was on air. Not a long while ago, I came across this meme on the internet regarding Pingu. It went along the lines of "Why does Pingu's dad always iron clothes when no one in his family wears clothes?" This meme really cracked me up and I felt like watching an episode of Pingu. This time around, I viewed it in a whole new light. I absolutely enjoy everything about this show now, especially how Pingu turns his beak into a horn and goes NOOT NOOT. Another interesting thing about this show is how the makers have smartly imbibed the qualities of clay in this claymation cartoon. It is a common sight to see Pingu roll about like a ball made out of clay. This show has a timeless feel to it, I can't seem to assign a time period to it. I think this must have to do with it being a clay animation. Most importantly, this show stands out for the fictional language that its characters speak. It's a remarkable approach to creating cartoons, making them equally appealing to every linguistic group.
