Pingu's Banned Episodes
OK this is a review about the banned episodes. PINGU'S DREAM Pingu's DreamIt is time for Pingu's bedtime, and he falls asleep while Mother is reading him a story. As Pingu sleeps, the igloo jumps up and down before floating away. His bed then sprouts legs and moves around. Although being rattled at first, he has lots of fun riding the bed, but he is unaware that a giant non-tusked whiskered walrus (or a leopard seal) is stalking him Censorship: This episode was placed on unofficial ban from broadcast distribution because it contains a giant grotesque-looking walrus/leopard seal that moves in very strange, disturbing ways trying to capture Pingu and was considered frightening for young children. It was also removed from rotation on British television in 2003, and was one of the few episodes pulled from Cartoon Network.
and PINGU RUNS AWAY *clears throat* Is another banned one Pingu and his parents are enjoying a quiet dinner, but Pingu isn't happy due to him refusing to eat his disgusting dinner. Mother and Father decide to share their food. Father give Mother fish, Mother gives Father greens and Mother tries to give Pingu a brown potato, but he refuses and splatters it all over Mother. Father becomes enraged and tells him off. Pingu then rocks his chair and ends up pulling everything off the table. His parents becomes furious and Pingu ends up getting a spankingCensorship: Since the 1990s, Pingu Runs Away was deemed controversial due to its offensive scenes (including Mother spanking Pingu and Pingu running away from home). As a result, Pingu Runs Away was placed under unofficial ban from broadcast or video distribution from the US by The Pygos Group and other rights-holders and broadcasters (including Turner Broadcasting and HiT Entertainment) Also, the episode contains dark, frightening images that have scared many young viewers. Due to the upsetting themes in this episode also, it was removed from British television in 2005. This was also one of the few episodes pulled from Cartoon Network and Sprout due to its offensive material.
The Last 2 ones PINGU GOES TO THE DOCTOR Mother goes out and leaves Pingu and Pinga at home. They decide to play dentist, but Pinga does not want to play when Pingu threatens to use a hammer and chisel on her. Pingu chases her, and during the chase a table gets knocked over by Pinga and Pingu bangs his beak on it. His beak is broken and bleeding. Pinga is sympathetic about this, So she bandages it up and takes Pingu to the doctor. The doctor, at first though, thinks that Pinga is the patient and takes her inside. She then tells the doctor that Pingu is the patient. Pingu is terrified when he sees the tool the doctor is going to use and runs off. Pinga and the doctor chase him round the outside of the igloo, but Pingu comes back inside and locks the doctor and Pinga out. Outside, all the other patients laugh at the whole fiasco. Pingu then rings Mother, who comes to the doctor and comforts him while his beak is being treated.
Censorship:That episode had depictions of blood in it thus it was banned on CN.
And the but not the least PINGU'S LAVATORY STORY its the well umm.... take a guess!
Pingu and his family are eating lunch. Pinga opens her mouth for Pingu to put a piece of fish in her mouth, but Pingu ends up eating it himself, much to Pinga's annoyance. Pingu then heads off to go to a bar type shop to get a drink. Pinga follows him and wants a drink too. Pingu buys her two, but when she drinks them, she tinkles on the ground and Pingu hurriedly sends her home; she makes it to her potty just in time. Pingu then finds he needs to go to the toilet, and rushes home just in time to see his father go into the bathroom. He pushes Pinga off her potty so he can use that instead, and is sent outside, and he then in a rage plays doorbell ditch so that Dad has to rush out of the bathroom to get it and Pingu can run in and use the toilet. He urinates on the floor. Because, the toilet is too high. However, Father becomes enraged and tells him off to clean it up.
Censorship: That episode had graphical depictions of urination and to put the salt on the wound The Pygos Group (the people who censor him) could'nt cover it up so now BANNED! but as long you avoid those episode even Hello,Pingu (cause it haves violence) it ok and like csm says Pingu and Robbie are magnets for trouble but the show is overall good 4/5 check for more Goodbye! or Mizz Mizz
