Only enjoyable if you're five or six, stupid otherwise
"Oink Oink! I'm Peppa Pig. This is my brother JAWge (he oinks) and Mommy Pig (she oinks) and Daddy Pig (he OINKs). HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!"
So begins everyone episode of this series. I've seen a fair amount of episodes of "Peppa Pig" and thought they were pretty childish and stupid considering I'm quite obviously past kiddie shows. Most of the time, the episodes of this show consisted of a simple plot, such as Peppa's class going on a field trip or something and making entire episodes out of rather insignificant events (like George getting sick). After a lot of sicky sweet joy and happiness goes around, each episode ends with someone making a cheesy joke that's not even funny and then everyone falls on the ground and laughs like it's the funniest thing ever.
You probably think I'm being snide when I say that, and I am. I mean, let's face it, no one but five and six year olds will really enjoy this (I saw it only because of how stupid it was). The art is simplistic and very much done in a style a little kid would use at that age. The scripting is also very uncomplicated and, as another reviewer said, gives the impression that nothing can ever go wrong in Peppa's world. Yes, that does kind of send a poor message in a kid's direction.
Now, for those who say Peppa is portrayed as a brat and that the show depicts everyone's disobedience as unpunished, I will say I cannot recall a lot of that from what I saw. I just remember a rather dumb show with a lot of annoying British accents and a lot of animals having fun. I'm not denying what those people say, I just can't remember seeing it (as when I saw it last was a couple years ago). Daddy Pig is definitely stereotyped, but that's not the only time you'll see that in a kid's show (one of the prime examples being "The Amazing World of Gumball").
Good for little kids but otherwise pretty stupid and overly sicky sweet for most peoples' taste. It's definitely better to let kids see this, though, than "Teletubbies".
