My brother-in-law got my daughter two DVDs featuring everyone’s favorite (whether they know it or not) Swiss penguin, Pingu.
The DVDs contain a series of claymation shorts. There is no real dialogue. Well, maybe there is. It is all in penguin language (“pinguish”), which may or may not actually be penguin language, I am not sure.
The shorts are very cute, and my daughter really seems to be captivated by them. There is even one where Pingu gets a new baby sister (Pinga, I believe), which should help us in our quest to numb our daughter to the idea of a new sibling.
And at least they aren’t Barney, or The Wiggles! Nor do they contain any dialogue or voices which my daughter will make me do until I no longer know how to speak in my normal voice… but that’s a different post.
Bonus fact (courtesy of wikipedia):
“In 1989, David Hasselhoff released (in Switzerland only) the single Pingu Dance, a rap song based on the Pingu shorts and featuring a number of samples of Pinguish. A portion of this song is used as the theme to Pingu on the PBS Kids Sprout channel in the United States.”
