My little siblings started watching this show recently, and I thought I's give my opinion on it. If you read my reviews, you've probably seen a pattern that I can be highly critical towards shows regardless of demographic, and that I tend to despise many preschool animated programs not because they are outside of my interest, but because they are of such poor quality, this show on the other hand is a prime example of what a preschool program SHOULD be like. I noticed in Commonsense's review that they mentioned "This show is similar to 'Max and Ruby', but there are parents around to correct children's mistakes", and I completely agree! This show is sort of similar to "Max and Ruby', complete with condescending older sister and barely speaking little brother, but do you know why I believe this show is superior to 'Max and Ruby'? Well, let's just compare the two shows! Peppa Pig episodes are never formulaic, Max and Ruby is overtly formulaic to the point where it's grating. Peppa Pig has decent voice acting, Max and Ruby has voice acting that ranges from mediocre, to horrible. Peppa Pig episodes, despite their short run-time, have appropriate pacing and never beat around the bush, Max and Ruby, despite a longer run-time has pacing that is too slow, and is usually loaded with filler content. Peppa Pig uses the computer-animation to its advantage by using to have a unique art style, Max and Ruby uses computer animation to be lazy in its animation style. Honestly, I could go on all day, but I'm getting side-tracked. Any way, there are a few things you need to understand about this show. First of all, this show follows the logic OF A CHILD. What I mean by that is that it's like a child wrote their own story, and added pictures to go along with it, so if some things don't add up, it's just because the writers are thinking like children (by the way, this works both to the shows favor, and against the show, but I'll get to that later.) Second of all, yes, I realize that Peppa has a bit of a condescending tone, but that is simply how she talks. Also, if she ever messes up do to her supposed bossiness, she is properly corrected by adults, or fixes her mistake on her own. For example, in one episode, Peppa is a bit bossy to her younger brother, which causes him to cry. Peppa quickly realizes she made a mistake, and does what she can to make her brother feel better, in this instance, it's giving him the cookie he wanted, but she wouldn't let him have. So yeah, this is an excellent show for preschoolers, however it isn't perfect. This is a show that sort of needs to learn how to up play its strengths, and downplay its weaknesses. Sometimes, this show will pass up great opportunities to teach rather mature morals (by preschool show standards.) Take a look at the episode "Chloe's Puppet Show". In the episode, Peppa overhears her father saying rude things about his brother on the way to his house. When they get there, Peppa and her cousin put on a puppet show that displays a puppet resembling said uncle, making him do the things Peppa overheard her father talking about (i.e. eating too much, napping obnoxiously.) However, before the uncle and the father can see this mockery, both of them falls asleep, and the episode ends. Do you see the problem? This episode passed up a great opportunity to teach a lesson to children AND adults. Peppa could have learned to not say rude things about people, while more importantly, Peppa's father could have learned to not speak rudely of people, especially family, in their absence or presence. Instead, the episode just ends on a joke, how disappointing. In all, despite having a few wasted opportunities, Peppa Pig is still an excellent show for preschoolers that I highly recommend.
