I have voiced my concerns before on this subject. You may recall.
I have aired my concerns over a certain animated pig and how evil and disruptive I think it is. I still believe that the message being sent out by one Peppa Pig and her sidekick George, has dastardly intentions set on making other people’s lives a misery.
I still have stains on my carpet due to the incessant nagging of the pig family to jump in muddy puddles. I have not forgotten.
However, I thought that I had managed to outlive the pig as now the daughter is three, she has moved on to other disruptive influences. A child that believes she’s a doctor leading me to think that one day I’m going to return home to a living room full of stuffing and dismembered limbs. Yes, you Doc McStuffins.
Or this boy Jake and his pirates. Is it really a good message to give young children that a stick is a sword? Really? You’ve obviously never been beaten with one.
Don’t get me started on the monkey that lives in the apartment…. jeez…
Anyway, as I say, the pig is back onto my TV screen. It turns out that the appeal of said pork by-product reaches young boys too. Yep, my little boy is now watching the dreaded thing. I only put it on because it gives me five minutes peace. If it was only five minutes….. Why do they insist on putting 27 episodes on in one go? Maybe it’s their break too….
But you know what’s even worse?! Can you guess? No? Well…
What makes it worse is that it is the same episodes as before! Yes, the years worth of Peppa Pig episodes I had to endure the first time, are back but this time I know what’s coming! I tell you, if I had hair I’d be ripping it out!!
I’ve got to get him interested in something else. Too young for Postman Pat, don’t like Fireman Sam and Thomas the Tank Engine will not be on in my house…. Ever.
