Reviewed on 5/26/2009...
This is by far my children's favorite DVD from the early years. Stumbled across this as a rental and we were hooked. Originally from Switzerland, it has recently become more accessible here. Charming funny, our family still recalls scenes of Pingu at the dinner table. PLEASE NOTE: Chillin with Pingu and Meet Pingu are the only two original DVD, if you see another title, skip it. Other titles that came after these two are not as good. There are very few children's dvd/cartoons I would sit through, time and time again, but this is funny and delightful.

Again, the only two titles I will vouch/swear by are Chillin' with Pingu and Meet Pingu.

Lots of laughs for all ages
(5 out of 5 stars)

"We got this DVD yesterday and sat down to watch it. My 5 year old laughed through a lot of the episodes. It's a better DVD than "Meet Pingu" but I would buy both. Some of the episodes show Pinga's birth and when she was a baby. There are 8 episodes in all. Plus there are 5 bonus HIT Entertainment episodes of other shows, such as "Angelina Ballerina" and "Rubber Dubbers" which is an animated show from the UK that is like Toy Story in the tub. A great value for the money and funny for all ages."
The better packaged of the 2 US DVDs

"Ok well HIT almost got this one right but I think the bonus stuff is annoying and it tells me HIT is short-changing the fans of Pingu to push other product. To me, as my son could care less about the "bonus features", this just means less Pingu on the DVD.Given the poor options available in the US. I'd say start here before you buy the tryuly atrociously packaged but never-the-less worthwhile "Meet Pingu" as this one (thanks to the menu) will spare your sanity.Having said that, Pingu is a wonderful stop-motion series from Swizerland that really desreves a better release in the states. Pingu and his friends are charming and the stories don't talk down to kids. Your kids will love it! I only wish the people at HIT Entertainment loved it too."
Son loves it ! Laugh out loud funny !

"My son (3yrs old) got his first glimpse of Pingu as a Hit Extra on a Bob the Builder DVD. He loved it so much, we had to play it over and over and over for him. He would shout Pingu! Pingu! Pingu! until I pushed play again. So getting this DVD in the mail today was great. He woke up crabby (crying) from his nap, but we popped in the DVD and he snapped right out of his bad mood. Now I only have to watch 8 episodes over and over again instead of the same one. I, too have watched it with him and some of the scenes are so funny, I can't but help laughing really loud. Too bad there aren't more DVDs for purchase, cuz we would buy them all. The Hit Extras on this are a nice bonus, but the Rubbadubbers is the same episode as on a Bob the Builder DVD, but my son doesn't seem to mind. If you or your kids like Pingu at all, you'll love this DVD."
