Peppa Pig is a children's television programme broadcasting on Channel 5 and Nick Jr. Each episode is approximately five minutes long. Each of her friends is a different species of animal. Peppa's friends are the same age as she is, and Peppa's younger brother George's friends are the same age as him. Episodes tend to feature everyday activities such as attending playgroup , going swimming , visiting their grandparents , cousins , going to the playground or riding their bikes. The characters wear clothes, live in houses, and drive cars, but still display some characteristics of the animals on which they are based.
Peppa and her family snort like pigs during conversations in which they are speaking in English, the other animals make their respective noises when they talk, with some exhibiting other characteristics, such as the Rabbit family's communications of squeaking sounds and their enjoyment of carrots. The Rabbits are also the sole exception to the rule of human-like habitation, in that they live in a burrow in a hill, although it does have windows and is furnished in the same way as the other houses.
The characters also blush when embarrassed and their mouths are used to express other emotions such as sadness, happiness, irritation, bewilderment and confusion.
Although the main characters — mostly mammals — are anthropomorphic, other animal characters are not, for example, Tiddles the tortoise, Polly Parrot, and the ducks. In addition, the narrator of the series John Sparkes reinforces the action and humour, saying things like "Oh, dear" when something unfortunate happens such as George starts crying or "Look out!

A minute film called Peppa Pig: The Golden Boots  was released on 14 February  alongside several episodes of the TV series.

After receiving several complaints, Astley Baker Davies announced that all future animation would include characters wearing seat belts, and that the relevant scenes in the first two series would be re-animated to include them.
In April , during the UK General Election campaign, E1 Entertainment confirmed Peppa would not be attending the launch of the UK Labour Party 's families manifesto "in the interests of avoiding any controversy or misunderstanding".
Peppa had previously been used to promote the Labour government's Sure Start programme. In , the Australian Broadcasting Corporation received a complaint that the episode "Mister Skinnylegs" was not appropriate for Australian audiences, since it encouraged befriending spiders. In late May , the Australian Broadcasting Corporation 's Mark Scott expressed fears about the future of Peppa on Australian television, given Australian federal budget cuts to ABC funding that were said to affect its ability to pay for, and broadcast, overseas media products such as Peppa Pig.
Australian media noted the character's appeal to Australian toddlers and echoed concerns about the future of her Australian distribution rights. Australian Federal Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce made reference to the character as a menu item at a Thai restaurant, while conservative columnist Piers Akerman thought that Peppa "pushes a weird feminist line".
During September , the cartoon once again entered the realm of political parody, as commentators referenced it when making light of the supposed Piggate scandal revolving around David Cameron. The British Medical Journal carried a light-hearted article in its Christmas edition, which suggested that although the programme includes numerous "positive public health messages, encouraging healthy eating, exercise, and road safety", it ran the risk of "contributing to unrealistic expectations of primary care " by depicting general practitioner Doctor Brown Bear as making out-of-hours home visits as soon as contacted about apparently trivial illnesses, and dispensing medicines rather too freely.
Peppa Pig is popular with mainstream China, and has been featured by official news media such as People's Daily ,  and even endorsed by People's Liberation Army  and Chinese weapons manufacturer Norinco. Despite the above controversy, the series and character remain popular within mainstream Chinese culture, as two Peppa Pig theme parks are set to open in Beijing and Shanghai in Peppa Pig: The Game was developed by Ubisoft and published by Pinnacle Inc.
