YMMV / Peep and the Big Wide World

  • Adaption Displacement: Nobody knows that the 2003 cartoon was based on the 1988 animated short film of the same name, which in turn was based on the short animated film The Peep Show from 1962, which is also extremely obscure.
  • Broken Base: For some fans, the final two seasons aren't considered the classics that the first three are. It doesn't help that season 4 came nearly three years after season 3, and in that time the TLC network it had been on since the beginning shut down, and KCTS began airing it with Pocoyo. The Vocal Evolution the main cast went through didn't help.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse:
    • People seem to really love Quack the duck, with good reasons. Even Joan Cusack (the narrator) says that he's her favorite character.
    • Hoot the owl, for being a great example of Dark Is Not Evil.
  • The Scrappy: Beaver Boy, for being obnoxious and Too Dumb to Live.
  • Screwed by the Network: Unsurprisingly, by RTM2 in Malaysia. The show wasn't given a consistent schedule, was frequently pre-empted for sporting events, and only one season was aired. It was later picked up by Discovery Kids Asia, except Discovery Kids Asia got screwed by its provider in Malaysia, who dropped the channel just three years after picking it up, with the excuse that it wasn't showing anything new or interesting...
  • Seasonal Rot: Season 4 for some fans—partly due to the fact that the first three seasons were classically a lot better. Season five seems to have improved these mistakes, however.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Chirp's a girl, but it's really hard to tell due to her somewhat deep voice and lack of Tertiary Sexual Characteristics. Same goes for Peep the other way around.
  • Wangst: Quack often acts like this.
    • In "The Sounds of Silence, part 2", Chirp of all characters goes into this, complaining that she doesn't want to walk through a puddle to the point that Quack has to carry her out of it.
  • What an Idiot!: Beaver Boy has tons of these moments.
