Who is Pingu? He's a charming and cheeky young penguin who lives in the snow and ice of the South Pole. Often finding himself in tricky and comical situations, the mischievous penguin meets the challenges of life head on, as he grows into a cooler and wiser penguin along the way. The award-winning, stop-frame calymation show appeals to millions of fans worldwide. Pingu has fun chillin' with his family and friends at their Arctic home, but that's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the cool adventures of this humorous penguin. Penguins have feelings too, and Pingu experiences the joys and frustrations of kids everywhere in these fun-filled stories. But sometimes things get out of hand as the mischievous little penguin goes from one "ice-capade" to another!
All my kids like Pingu, from the 7-year-old down to the 2-year-old, and I have to admit to watching it when the kids aren't even home. It's humorous and innocent, the characters are endearing, and the fact that the characters don't speak any language -- the dialogue is in "Penguinese" -- means that they convey their stories wholly with action, vocal inflection and body language. This is extremely intriguing.
Pingu is refreshingly unlike all the mainstream toddlers' programs out there, which are either excruciatingly heartwarming, unbearably didactic or just plain inane. It's a bit hard to find; at this point we're only able to get it from Time Warner On Demand cable. There are some DVDs available too. But if you have young kids, do check it out. The whole family will enjoy it.
