    Pingu is a beloved claymation series of TV shorts about a Penguin called Pingu. Despite it being aimed to younger audiences, it is also a family show. About The Show

    Pingu is a young mischievous Penguin that lives in the South Pole with his Mom and Dad, his Sister, Pinga, his best friends Ping and Pingo (HIT entertainment dubbed Pingo "Punky"), Robby the Seal, and a cast of other colorful characters. The show doesn't use english words, but it's own creative language called "Penguiniese" (OR, "Pengish"). History

    The show originally began in Switzerland from the company Trickfilmstudio back in 1986. But over the years, it had spread to America and other countries of the world such as Japan where the show is famous amongst young teen girls (ages 13-17) and also in England where Pingu has become a household name. A few years ago, Hit Entertainment had bought the distribution rights to Pingu by releasing DVD's of the short cartoons. also, Hit had changed the music and some of the voices when they got the rights to the show so there were 2 versions, the original Tricksfilmstudio version, and the HIT entertainment version.

    The show had been doing extremely well that [url="www.hitentertainment.com"] had decided to make 52 all new shorts of Pingu in September of 2004 (Though, those episodes have yet to get in america as they only aired in the UK). But before that, They had released an all new DVD called "A Very Special Wedding" which included the introduction of Green Penguin's and was 20 minutes in length compared to a normal Pingu short of 3 to 5 minutes.

    Pingu is a coming of age story about a yung sauce finding his way in the winter landscape of rural Japan. This is not just anime at itsPingu is a coming of age story about a yung sauce finding his way in the winter landscape of rural Japan. This is not just anime at its absolute finest, but visual story telling in its purest form. With some of the most detailed character illustration and beautiful set design out of any animated series, Pingu honestly is a work of art and brings a tear to my eye each time I watch it. The late John Cena voiced Pingu for the first 6 seasons and the writers and film makers did a superb job of working around this tragedy. This show can only be compared to other animes such as Lazy Town, Naruto, Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift, Teletubbies and Ready, Steady, Cook! I love this show and often try to reenact the scenes with my friends. This give this a 10/10 but I did not like the way Pingu doesn't learn martial arts until the 5th season. ピングーは生意気な若いソースです Expand
