Pingu Snowboarding


 

I remmeber that I was watching this tv series in my childhood at KTV2 everyday after noon.

Pingu is a Swiss stop-motion claymated television series created by Otmar Gutmann. The series was produced by The Pygos Group and Trickfilmstudio for Swiss television. The show is about a family of anthropomorphic penguins at the South Pole. The main character is the family’s son and title character, Pingu.

The show ran originally for 4 seasons from 1986 to 1998 on SF DRS. In 1998, there were 2 Pingu episodes made (one of them being “Pingu & the Doll”) that never aired due to schedule problems. In 1999, they showed the 2 episodes with a Pingu marathon between commercials. However, HiT Entertainment’s request for more episodes convinced Pygos to bring back the show in 2004, with 2 more seasons. When the show’s final episode aired, they stopped making Pingu due to low advertising & was canceled yet again in the beginning of 2011, so HiT decided to upload clips of Pingu to YouTube.
