* PutOnABus: So far everyone except Pingu, Pinga, their parents, and Robby in ''Pingu in the City''.

* PutOnABus: So far everyone except Pingu, Pinga, their parents, and Robby in ''Pingu in the City''. Justified as Pingu and his family moved to a new settlement, while Robby's presence may be explained in that he followed them there.

* AbusiveParents: In one episode, Pingu's mother slaps Pingu in the face for insubordination.

* ToiletHumour[=/=]PottyEmergency: By far the most controversial and widely banned episode of the show is ''Pingu's Lavatory Story''. The episode depicts Pingu drinking too much lemonade at the local pub and rushing home only to find the toilet occupied by his father. Pingu rings the doorbell so his father has to come out and answer it and he then rushes into the bathroom himself. Unfortunately, the toilet is too high, [[PottyFailure so he urinates on the floor...]]

* WhatAnIdiot: In ''Pingu Quarrels With His Mother'', Pingu gets a splinter in his foot (or stubs his toe? flipper?) after continually angering his mother with his repeated pratfalls and misbehaviour. What does Pingu do to try and solve the situation? ''Kick the table as hard as he can'' with the affected foot, breaking the crockery neatly arranged on top, then continue to run around the room hollering like a loon. Pingu only breaks out of the stupidity (and straight into tears) when his mother ''slaps him hard across his face''.

By far the most notable aspect of the show was its lack of coherent speech; rather than German, English or some other real European language, [[SpeakingSimlish characters spoke a nonsensical babble that was a composite of bits and pieces of many different languages that on the DVD and video cases is sometimes dubbed "Penguinese"]]. However, owing to the simple plots and some thoroughly entertaining tongue-in-cheek body language, one hardly needed dialogue in order to discern what was happening. However, a English-speaking narrator was slapped onto the show when it was exported to Canada, and subsequently the British imported the Canadian episodes and bowdlerized it even further.

* [[IAmNotWeasel I Am Not Walrus]]: The evil walrus from ''Pingu's Dream'' is actually a leopard seal. He's probably mistaken as a walrus because of his mustache.


Added DiffLines:

* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: While all the penguin (and one seal) characters are candidates, Pinga and the other toddler penguins take the cake due to being designed after emperor penguin chicks.
