Pingu is a British-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 2000 on SF DRS. In 2000, there were 2 Pingu episodes made (one of them being "Pingu & the Doll") that never aired due to schedule problems. In 2001, 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 two more series.
Since Pingu is a children's television series many of the episodes have been censored before they reached UK Television. Some episodes were even banned completely from being shown. For a full list, see Pingu Censorship
