    :money: - you're overanalysing it, just relax and enjoy :)

    Gibbs' rule - never overcomplicate things ;)
    Always ask yourself one question: What would Gibbs do?

  • As a Peppa Pig watcher under sufferance, I would point out that Charlotte the spider of Charlottes Web fame was seriously anthropomorphised...so much so that I shed a tear at her demise and I am an arachnaphobe. My Grandson (18mths) adores this stuff and is riveted. George is a good strong British name...

    Why isn’t George called Paul?
    Peppa's cousins (Chloe and Alexander) also don't have alliterative first names - though you could argue the case for Cousin Chloe.
    Is Miss Rabbit in a union?
    Good question.
    I used to wonder if there were multiple Miss Rabbits (in reference to them breeding like rabbits) but it has since been clarified that it is the one woman working all those jobs.
    Is the darker side of animals’ predatory nature truly hidden just beneath the surface?
    I like these nuances.
    Like when Mr Wolf asks Daddy Pig what his house is made of.
    Without doubt my favourite character is Grampy Rabbit.
    Mine too. I like the whole Rabbit family.
    plus his literally blessed voice
    I see what you did there...

    That boy is clearly unwell - imagining prehistoric creatures are all over the place, and no-one dares to tell him the truth. Is he a psychopath as well?

    Plus, he's annoying.

    We really aren't meant to question childrens TV to hard as there is rarely an answer.

    Why is Goofy a dog who stands upright yet pluto isn't?

    Why does Donald Duck put a towel around his lower half when he gets out of the shower but normally his bottom half is naked, if his towel is dropped/taken he then covers up with his hands, yet again covering parts normally on show.

    The list is endless!

    You're missing the point. Overanalysing it is the closest that a bored adult can get to "enjoying" their 73rd oh-so-similar episode of something that is only genuinely interesting to the under-5s.

    Martin is being a good dad by sitting with her and watching what she finds fun, rather than leaving her to watch Peppa while he does something more interesting for a grown-up.

    Tyre performance in the wet deteriorates rapidly below about 3mm tread - change yours when they get dangerous, not just when they are nearly illegal (1.6mm).
    Oh, and wear your seatbelt. My kids are only alive because they were wearing theirs when somebody else was driving in wet weather with worn tyres.
