BEST SHOW EVER!
greatest show ever that can be enjoyed by anyone from any country at any age. My favourites are Pingu's birthday and Pingu visits the kindergarten
i love pingu!!!
how old am i and i still watch pingu? I LOVE THIS THING!!!
What a shame....
I love it - I really really love it. Always have and always will!!! And £1.89 for 4 episodes is good value. But..... I don't remember there being an annoying English voice explaining everything like it does on here - and it's really putting me off a bit and loses it one star. Will have to go down and dig out my old VHS copy instead I think.
