There’s actually a reason why your child is obsessed with Peppa Pig.
Chances are if you’ve got a little one at home, you’re pretty familiar with Peppa Pig and have definitely seen at least one episode of the animated series.
Or 1,001 episodes, depending on how much of a fan your toddler is.
The beloved animated series has been broadcast in more than 180 territories and in over 40 languages.
It turns out, though, that there’s actually a pretty logical reason behind your little one’s obsession with Peppa Pig.
Producer Phil Davies revealed in an interview with The Guardian’s Ben Beaumont-Thomas that using a child to voice Peppa made the character relatable for young viewers.
Mark Baker, the series’ co-creator, added: “When Peppa came out, there were a lot of children’s characters that didn’t really have a family or parents.”
“Our experience was that children don’t like laughing at themselves, but do like laughing at their parents. By having a Mummy and Daddy Pig, we could get humour in without having to laugh at the child character.”
