Trivia / Peppa Pig

Go To

  • Acting for Two: In the Japanese dub for Cartoon Network, the voice actors of both of Peppa's parents (Osamu Sakuta and Yuko Sasaki) also voiced Peppa's respective grandparents as well.
  • Adored by the Network: Nick Jr. UK loves this show so much that it airs up to 15 times a day and they will occasionally replace their subchannel, Nick Jr. Too, with an all-Peppa Pig channel. It's become more and more of an extreme example, since it's becoming an even bigger Cash Cow Franchise nowadays.
  • Banned in China:
  • Channel Hop:
    • Peppa Pig first started airing on the short-lived Cartoon Network block, "Tickle U". Then had a stint on Noggin. It can now be seen on Nick Jr..
      • Interesting to note is that for the Cartoon Network airings, the series had a new dub with American voice actors, though on a few occasions, the original UK dub would be aired. This dub is now very hard to find.
    • Advertisement:
    • The show had multiple Channel Hops in the UK. It first aired on Milkshake (a children's block on Five), then settled on three Nick Jr. channels.
    • Starting in 2021, animation production will be transferred over to Karrot Entertainment.
  • Died During Production:
    • The original Japanese dub ended when Shinichiro Takakuwa, the dub director, died at the age of 82. 7 years later, the dub would be continued as part of TV Tokyo's Kinder TV block.
    • The Brazillian voice of Suzy Sheep, Ana Lucia Menezes, passed away in April 2021. It is unknown if the role will be recast with another actress for future episodes.
    • José Lavat, who voiced Grandpa Pig in the Mexican Spanish dub, died in May 2018.
  • Dueling Dubs:
    • There was a short-lived American English dub that aired on Cartoon Network from 2005 to 2007.
    • There are also two Japanese dubs: One for Cartoon Network and another for TV Tokyo's preschool block Kinder TV.
  • Dueling Shows: With Nickelodeon's Yakkity Yak and Cartoon Network's Scaredy Squirrel as all 3 shows are edutainment series centering a Funny Animal character.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes:
    • The American English dub that aired on Cartoon Network back in 2005 has become lost because of not many people watching the channel's airings of the show and Nick Jr. airing the UK version.
    • The original UK release of "The Golden Boots" also counts. The bridging segments by the Milkshake hosts and an actual list of episodes that weren't the titular special are near-impossible to find.
    • The original Japanese dub has become lost in a similar scenario to the US dub. It is still unconfirmed if "Colorful Fanfare" was actually used as the theme song or not, but the label who released it confirms it as such.
  • Name's the Same: Candy Cat should not be confused with the much, much worse character with the same name.
  • The Other Darrin:
    • Peppa has had four voice actors. However, other characters voiced by children still had their original voice actors for much longer.
    • The Latin American dub was dubbed twice in different countries. The first dubbed version was voiced in Venezuela, and the second one in Mexico.
  • Same Language Dub: There exist two versions of the special "Peppa's Christmas": one where Peppa is voiced by Cecily Bloom, and another where her lines were re-dubbed by Harley Bird.
  • Screwed by the Network: Nick complied after being pelted by Malaysian parents and educators over not airing the show... by putting it on at a time where the target demographics were in kindergarten and preschool, and only on weekdays with absolutely zero repeats. Adding further insult, the show only aired on Nickelodeon instead of the Nick Jr. channel. The show was swiftly cancelled over the "low ratings" excuse once it ended its initial run.
  • Short Run in Peru: Series 5 onwards has had several episodes broadcast in either Australia or the United States before their initial airing in native United Kingdom.
  • Unisex Series, Gendered Merchandise: Because of the show's protagonist being female, most of the merchandise for this show outside of the toyline is aimed at young girls. Merchandise for boys features the character George only, even if Peppa is on the package or hangtags.
  • What Could Have Been: When the show was initially bought across the pond to air on Cartoon Network's fledgling preschool television block, Tickle-U, the show was dubbed over with American actors. While the amount of backlash towards the ill-fated dub is unknown, the fact that the show was picked up by Noggin to air two years later says something.
