It's not a very progressive show.
They never mention that Daddy pig sometimes likes to dress up in Mummy pigs clothes.

Not sure how I feel about this.

Initial reaction is FFS, they've little to be worrying about!

But maybe they may have a point.

I've a four year old (almost 5) daughter who loves Peppa Pig, although she is starting to grow out of it the last month or two. Like most young girls, its all princesses and rainbows and ballerinas, with zero interest in dinosaurs or sharks or other such "boyish" things. My older son is the complete opposite albeit also very aware of things he is not "supposed" to like as a boy.

While there's plenty of time to teach them both that they can be anything they want to be, would it really cost the makers of Peppa Pig, or anyone else, anything to start encouraging that kind of thinking or at least NOT reinforce stereotypes?

Peppa Pig was one of the few children's cartoons I enjoyed when raising the kids. It always had some good laughs though most were at the expense of Daddy Pig. If anyone should be outraged it's fathers because it has surely raised a generation of young girls to think Daddys are not the brightest sparks.

Totally agree poor aul daddy pig gets awful abuse. I don't see anything wrong with peppa apart that she can be veey bossy. All this PC madness is maddening.  I'm shocked that Tom and Jerry are still allowed with the violence.

I know of one man who won't let his daughters watch it because of this very reason.

Peppa Pig one of the best shows on TV.

Daddy Pig does get a raw deal, heart definitely goes out to him. From trying to put up pictures on the wall to having to take Peppa to work with him to getting slagged off for not being sport enough. Plus they are never done fat-shaming the man and him the only one who works in that house.He has it rough. Peppa is a bit of a wee bitch and could do with a kick up the hole on occasion.

Mr Bull a total legend. Anything to be rootin and tearing about in his digger.
A Tree falls down...."Lets dig up the roooooooad!!"
A leaky tap...."Lets dig up the roooooooad!!"
The lights go out...."Lets dig up the roooooooad!!"
We're out of milk...."Lets dig up the roooooooad!!"

And Mr Fox and his fella....2 dodgier boyos you couldnt meet.

Pedro Pony is personal fave though...always wearing the wrong clothes and slow to catch on but hes definitely smarter than he lets on.

You are spot on here. My daughter just starting to watch it now. So obviously Iíve had to check the content in advance. Pedro a definite favourite for me. Canít figure out Mummy Rabbit and Miss Rabbitt. Reckon they are pulling something

Its ridiculous to be fair. More examples of a world gone mad.

Like Sam Smith reckons he isnt anything.

How are you supposed to define as a man or woman now? Surely your genitalia is a factor?

Or maybe nowadays what you have doesnt mean anything

It's what you THINK you are now. Science doesn't matter. We have to pretend to not see it and just believe in lies.

Give it a go. Just threaten to sue the GAA  if they try stop you or call them transphobic and they'll back off.
