Positive Role Models
Though Peppa can be a bit bossy, she is receptive to learning lessons, and adults are unfailingly kind and supportive.
Violence & Scariness
Characters can be ever-so-slightly realistically mean to each other, sticking out their tongues, for example; tiffs are followed by appropriate adult corrections.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Peppa Pig is a mild and very cute British animation series, suitable for the youngest members of the household. The show's animation is simple and pleasant, and crises revolve around the kind of things preschoolers worry about: visiting grandparents, playgroups, riding bikes. Strong social lessons about kindness, loyalty, and being thoughtful run throughout each episode.
Is It Any Good?
Sweet, gentle, and easygoing, this series is perfect for the younger set, with great voice work and simple animation. The relationship between Peppa and her younger brother George is particularly realistic: Peppa sometimes gets in (mild) trouble for teasing him, or gets comeuppance after underestimating him. It's sort of like Max and Ruby, except there are actually pig parents around to teach lessons.
Children will enjoy the way Peppa and her family members snort as they talk, and they may imitate some of the animal sounds from other characters. But Peppa Pig is low-key enough that it won't send kids barking and snorting and bouncing off the walls when they're done watching.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
