Very funny and cute, one of the better "kids"-oriented shows on now
I wasn't introduced to this show until recently. I confess it didn't interest me before, but while flicking through channels one morning I came across it, and the rest is history. I do wish I didn't let my initial judgement cloud over, as this is a wonderful show that is a refreshing retread from the mediocre and awful cartoons that are airing now(ie. Dora the Explorer). What's more, not only is it perfect for kids, but there is quite a bit for adults to admire too.
The animation has quite an interesting and unique style to it, but all the same it is a colourful and smooth look. Not only do the colours look plentiful and lavish, but the backgrounds don't look cheap and the characters look cute. The music is great as well, the background scoring is good and melodious, but the real revelation is the theme tune which is very catchy and infectious, one of my favourite "kids show" theme tunes along with Shaun the Sheep and Pingu.
What also captivates about Peppa Pig is its charm. The dialogue is always droll and touching, simple it is but simple I like. The stories are very well-paced and easy to understand. What is also special about these stories are the way it incorporates the morals. These morals don't feel forced, shoe-horned in or preachy, instead they are incorporated in a subtle way and they never feel superfluous to its respective story. The characters I can relate to with no problem whatsoever, the characters here are very sweet and likable and that's not just the titular character.
All in all, a very funny and cute show and I cannot wait to see more of it. 10/10 Bethany Cox
