Mysteries of Peppa Pig
There are many mysteries in Peppa and when you watch it eleventy billion times, they start to grate. Here are a list of the worst/biggest offenders:
Why in the name of holy hell is George called George? ALMOST all the other characters have names that alliterate. Candy Cat, Suzy Sheep, Zoe Zebra. The Pig Family however have Peppa and George. They also have Chloe (I guess Cousin Chloe keeps the form?) and Alexander….what?!
Why do Peppa and George go to the same playgroup?
Is it the smallest village in the world? Is it Government cut backs? Why are they all in one big class? It doesn’t make any sense!!
How does Miss Rabbit Manage to do All the Jobs?!
Miss Rabbit is the hardest working rabbit in the world (and she has a medal to prove it) She works in the supermarket, drives the buses, runs the fire station, an ice cream stall (that’s seemingly everywhere), a cafe in the woods, the library, the museum, works at the aquarium and she drives the train too.
Daddy Pig seems to wear a shirt and jumper/blazer, but err…no trousers. The swimwear is odd too…a pig in a bikini is a very strange thing.
The Animal Complexities
For most of the show it appears that these characters behave like humans; after all there are actual animals in the show too (how confusing was the Zoo episode?!). There are, however, little nods to their animal traits. For example, Mr Fox stalking around a chicken coup at night, Pigs enjoying being in mud, the lion being strangely drawn to Madame Gazelle, Mr Wolf going on about how hungry he is around Daddy Pig…
It would appear that Peppa and George only have one set of Grandparents; Mummy’s parents, but also one Aunty and Uncle; Daddy’s brother. What happened to Daddy Pig’s parents?
is Doctor Brown Bear really a Doctor?
Only he never has any patients and can always come and do house visits straight away.
Mysteries of Ben & Holly
The Royal Family
Why is King Thistle the King? Both his parents are still alive (albeit they’re totally bonkers). Did they abdicate? Were they forced out? Why do I care?
The Wise Old Elf
What’s with his clothes? His usual outfit looks like a dress and trousers. He has 3 sons who look very different; was he a bit of a player?! Is he in love with Nanny Plum?!
Whats with the hair? How does she achieve a bob with a bun on the top? What’s with the attitude? If most people spoke to their employer the way she speaks to the King, they’d be sacked pretty quickly.
He’s a ladybird. Why does he bark and behave like a dog?!
Why do the elves hate it so much?! Do you think they were people and they were turned into Elves?! In which case they’re living in a dictatorship, forced to work as slaves; too dark?!
