The New Arrival (sometimes known as Pinga is Born) is the third episode of the first series.
Mum and Dad take turns sitting on their egg whilst Pingu reads a book quietly. Suddenly, the egg begins to crack, the kettle begins to whistle and the phone rings at the same time. Pingu isn't sure which one to stop first so he sits back down flustered. Mum takes the kettle off the burner, answers the phone, comforts Pingu for a moment then goes back over to Dad. Then a beak pierces through the shell of the egg and pokes Dad in the rear, causing him to jump up in surprise. This makes Mum anxious so she orders Dad to call the midwife. Pingu then goes outside to get the midwife's attention when she arrives.
The midwife skates over to the igloo and begins examining the hatching egg with her stethoscope. Pingu comes back inside and walks over to see what is happening but Dad tells him to stand back and be quiet. Pingu keeps trying to look but fails each time, as his parents block his view. The midwife carefully removes the shell of the egg while Mum and Dad continue to prevent Pingu from looking. Once the shell has been removed, they allow Pingu to see. There sits Pinga, his newborn little sister. Then Mum and Dad thank the midwife as she leaves.
Pingu’s parents begin to bond with Pinga but soon Mum advises Dad to stop smoking so she grabs his pipe and gives it to Pingu, who goes outside and puts it on the snowman in front of their igloo. When he comes back, Dad sets up the camera for a picture and eventually, the picture is taken.
