    The Pigs 

Tropes Relating to All

  • Color-Coded Characters: As per the norm of the series, Peppa and her family all have colour-coded clothing.
    • Peppa Pig: Red
    • George Pig: Blue
    • Mummy Pig: Orange
    • Daddy Pig: Green
    • Granny Pig: Pink
    • Grandpa Pig: Bluish-purple
    • Chloe Pig and Baby Alexander: Yellow
    • Auntie Pig: Pink with white polka dots
    • Uncle Pig: Greyish-blue
  • Verbal Tic: Pig snorts when they speak.

Peppa Pig
The main character, a five-year-old pig.
  • Aloof Big Sister: Downplayed; she is occasionally mean to George, her younger brother, but it is mostly light-hearted sibling ribbing. Take this example from the episode "Families":
    Peppa: George thinks his toy dinosaur is scary. It is not scary. But if I don't play, he cries. It's hard work having a little brother.
    (Peppa smiles as she sticks her drawing to the wall, and George laughs)
  • Baby's First Words: Her first word was "mummy".
  • Bratty Half-Pint: Downplayed. She is rude sometimes and sometimes Innocently Insensitive, but calling her a brat would be going too far.
  • Cannot Keep a Secret: She is unable to keep a secret. For example, she tells everyone her family sold Daddy Pig's old chair despite Mummy Pig telling her to keep it quiet.
  • Cheerful Child: Generally has a positive attitude.
  • Filthy Fun: Likes to jump in muddy puddles.
  • Genki Girl: Very perky and energetic.
  • Innocently Insensitive: A lot of times, she will say something that sounds rude just because she doesn't know better.
  • Jerkass Ball: She does tend to have some bossy and hot-headed moments sometimes. Especially towards George.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She is sometimes rude to the other characters, but is actually a Cheerful Child.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Generally wears the same red dress all the time.
  • Little Miss Snarker: Although most of her perceived snark is unintentional, she can be snarky occasionally.
  • Motor Mouth: She talks nonstop.
  • Sibling Rivalry: Downplayed. Sometimes, she's mean to George, but mostly she's nice to him.
  • Ship Tease: The video game "My Friend Peppa Pig" somewhat implies Peppa might have a crush on The Friend (the player's avatar). One scene from the game in particular has Peppa imagining herself as a queen with The Friend sitting next to her on the throne as a co-ruler.
  • Vocal Dissonance: In the now-lost American dub, Peppa was voiced by a woman.
  • Vocal Evolution: Her voice noticeably gets more mature by Season 5, before reverting back to normal in the middle of Season 6. By the time she stopped voicing the character, Harley Bird was nineteen years old.
  • You Are Fat: Likes to claim Daddy Pig has a big tummy.

George Pig
This is her little brother George...
Voiced by: Oliver May and Alice May (English)
Peppa's younger brother, who is three and likes dinosaurs.

Daddy Pig
Voiced by: Richard Ridings (English)
Peppa and George's dad, who is a bit of a show-off.
  • Acrofatic: He's fat, yet can jump high on a puddle and splat away all of the mud and dive into water without disturbing it.
  • Blatant Lies: Sometimes, he claims to be an expert at things he's already failing to do, or claims not to be grumpy in a grumpy voice.
  • Bumbling Dad: Sometimes he's accident-prone, though George and Peppa love and respect him.
  • Butt-Monkey: Sometimes, he gets into trouble due to his mistakes.
  • Fat and Proud: He doesn't see why he should be fit, and believes it's not fat, but muscle.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • Despite his Bumbling Dad antics, it's been shown he's Acrofatic, a talented drummer and skilled at playing the accordion.
    • He works as an architect and appears to have some skill in engineering: his favourite book is about concrete, and his level of DIY skill can be fearsome. After he knocks a hole in the wall while putting up a picture, he fixes the hole, replasters the wall and paints it over so well that all Mummy Pig notices is that he forgot to put up the picture.
  • Know-Nothing Know-It-All: Daddy Pig claims he know everything, but in reality, he doesn't.
  • Loved by All: Daddy Pig is well liked by all characters as shown in "Valentine's Day", where everyone became sad when learning that Daddy Pig didn't get a Valentine card. In the end, they gave him a whole sack of cards.
  • No Sense of Direction: A Running Gag on the show is how the family always gets lost when he reads the map; he is depicted as holding the map upside down in these scenes.
  • Perma-Stubble: His face always looks stubbly.
  • Too Dumb to Live: He always dismisses others' warnings, whenever he does things that would risk his or others' lives.
  • Vocal Dissonance: As a child, his voice sounded the same, albeit higher.

Mummy Pig
Voiced by: Morwenna Banks (English)
Peppa and George's mother, and the more sensible parent.
  • Birthday Episode: One episode focuses on her birthday. It's fittingly titled "Mummy Pig's Birthday".
  • Catchphrase: She says, "Be careful, Daddy Pig" a lot.

Granny Pig
Peppa and George's grandmother.

Grandpa Pig
Peppa and George's grandfather.
  • Caring Gardener: He grows a lot of fruits and vegetables in his garden, and is loving towards his family.
  • Cool Old Guy: The kids like him as much as Granny Pig.

Chloe Pig
Peppa and George's older cousin, who likes to talk about how she's "almost grown up".
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Calls her cousins "babies", but is a nice cousin really.
  • Not So Above It All: Initially, she thought that jumping in puddles was for babies, but joined in when she saw the adults doing it.
  • Vague Age: Claims to be "almost grown up", which adults would classify as about fifteen at the youngest and seventeen at the oldest, but kids often boast about almost being grown up, so she might be as young as six.
    • The Season 6 episode "In the Future" also debuts the 17-year-old Charlotte Sheep, whose body proportions are closer to that of the adults, implying Chloe is still prepubescent throughout her appearances. Furthermore, in the Season 7 episode "Roller Disco", Chloe's friend Belinda Bear is stated by the narrator to be almost 10 years old, so Chloe herself is presumably around that age as well.

Alexander Pig

Peppa and George's younger cousin, and Chloe's brother.

Auntie Pig
Chloe and Alexander's mother.

Uncle Pig
Chloe and Alexander's father and Daddy Pig's older brother.

  • Verbal Tic: Sheep sounds when they speak.

Suzy Sheep

  • Best Friend: Is Peppa's best pal.
  • Hypocrite: She's allegedly bossy and keeps telling people what to do but she thinks Peppa is the one who is telling people what to do.
  • Jerkass Ball: To Pedro, George, Richard and Edmond in "International Day", as she deliberately tries to kick Pedro, George, Richard and Edmond out of the sandpit.
  • Missing Dad: Her father is never seen or mentioned in the series.
  • Motor Mouth: Is described as a "chatterbox" along with Peppa in one episode.
  • Never My Fault: Suzy refuses to admit she tried to kick Pedro, George, Richard and Edmond out of the sandpit on purpose in the "International Day".
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: In almost every episode where Tiddles the turtle or someone/something else is stuck on a tree, Suzy suggests that to get them down, they have to "Chop the Tree down!" Luckily, the others always refuse to do so.

    The Rabbits

  • Jack-of-All-Trades: Played for Laughs. She does at least three different job shifts per day, and wherever Peppa and her family go, Miss Rabbit is almost invariably the cashier/receptionist/person on duty.
  • New Job as the Plot Demands: Miss Rabbit doing every random job going is a Running Gag throughout the series — fire-fighter, supermarket checkout, museum shop, bus driver, train driver, Christmas tree salesperson, etc. It's lampshaded in "Miss Rabbit's Day Off", in which everyone has to fill in for all her jobs, and in "The Queen", in which Miss Rabbit receives an award from the Queen for being "the Hardest Worker in the Land".

Grampy Reggie Rabbit

  • No Indoor Voice: It's BRIAN BLESSED. Did you honestly expect anything different?

  • Trademark Favourite Food: Unlike the other Rabbits, Grampy Rabbit seems to love cheese.

    The Giraffes 

Tropes Relating All

Gerald Giraffe

  • Blessed with Suck: In his debut episode, Peppa and her friends admire him because he's the tallest in the class, even though he's the same age as them. This height also makes it difficult for him to play Hide and Seek without being found instantly.

Mr Potato

Madame Gazelle

  • Cool Teacher: She is a good teacher and likes to sing with her students.

  • Given Name Reveal: In the episode "Madame Gazelle's Leaving Party", her sisters and band-mates refer to her as "Gigi" in a phone call.
  • Purple Is Powerful: If her Daywalking Vampire status is to be implied, then her dark purple dress may mean this.
  • Really 700 Years Old: While her age is never said, it's shown she planted a baby pine one Christmas and now it's taller than her house. That much growth takes at least a century, but she still looks the same as when she planted it.


Three yellow ducks, led by Mrs Duck.
  • No Name Given: Mrs Duck is the only named one; the other two don't seem to have names.

Dr. Brown Bear

Peppa Pig's teddy bear.
