Pingu the Superhero is the seventeenth episode of the third season of Pingu which was broadcast on July 4th, 1996.


One day, Pingu sees Pingo playing with a sword. Pingo tells him that he is pretending to be a superhero and that he should do the same. Pingo hands over his superhero comic book to Pingu and he takes it home. Pingu looks at the book and decides that he should be one too. Pingu runs around the igloo in a red and yellow cape, ramming into things and knocking things over, causing a big mess. He even throws a rolling pin at a painting! Pinga sees all of this and decides to pretend to be a princess since it is much more safer. Pingu prepares himself to jump off a chair on top of a table, but suddenly, the chair begins to wobble and eventually, he falls down and hurts his foot. Mother rushes him straight to the doctors where they find Pingo's own superhero act has left with his own injuries. In the end they all agree that the best way to avoid getting hurt is to be characters like princesses - just like Pinga.
