* WilyWalrus: A NightmareSequence has Pingu being hunted by a [[MisplacedWildlife giant walrus]]/[[PredatorsAreMean leopard seal]] [[MixAndMatchCritters hybrid]]. Aside from his [[UncannyValley creepy appearance]], said character first traps Pingu inside an igloo, and then [[WouldHurtAChild it squashes and stratches the poor penguin like a doll]]. [[RuleOfThree Finally]], it takes the matress of Pingu's [[AnimateInanimateObject animated bed]] and [[ExtremeOmnivore eats it as if it were a chocolate bar]]. This scene was considered so scary that the entire episode got banned from US television since its first airing.

* 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''.

Episodes of the series lasted for five minutes and consequently were fairly bare-bones in terms of plot; the general trend in them was of Pingu encountering a problem or getting into trouble in some way and then the issue being resolved. A typical plot of an episode would be Pingu having his ball stolen by one of his friends, getting upset about it, and then the friend feeling sorry for him, making up with him, and them then sharing the ball. In several market, the shortness of episode is normally compensated by airing three to four different episodes back-to-back (along with a heaping dose of commercials in between).

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.

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.

* UnfortunateNames: Pinga. And to add salt to the wound, Pinga's a female. The character ''was'' created long before Pinga became a mainstream slang word, though, and long before SonicTheHedgehog was released. (Pingu - 1985, Sonic - 1990) Also, see YoutubePoop.

** However, it appears that ''Pinga'' has always been a Spanish slang word for ''dick''...

* YoutubePoop: Actually a somewhat popular source, enough that [=HiT=] Entertainment took them off Youtube at one point. Plenty of jokes have been made about [[UnfortunateNames their names sounding like]] "[[AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog Pingas]]."
