Pingu logo from 1986

Pingu is a Swiss stop-motion claymated television series created by Otmar Gutmann. The series was produced by The Pygos Group, and distributed by HiT Entertainment and Hot Animation. 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 four seasons from 1986 to 1998 on RTSI, after the end of season 4, the series was cancelled. However, HiT Entertainment's request for more episodes convinced Pygos to bring back the show in 2004, with 2 more seasons. The seasons did not return for RTSI, and was moved to BBC. When the show's final episode aired, they stopped making Pingu due to low advertising, and was cancelled yet again in the beginning of 2006.
