A terminally ill girl is revived by a magical penguin spirit. In return, her brothers are sent on a quest for the mysterious 'Penguindrum'.
A character in the show is named Ringo Oginome. "Ringo" is Japanese for "apple", and the Japanese kanji for "ringo" also reads "pingu", for "penguin". According to the producers and writers, because the apple is pivotal in fairytales (especially the tale of Snow White) they wanted to name an important character after the fruit.
At the end of each episode there is an illustration of one of the characters, in a position hinting at something in that episode or a forthcoming episode.
