The Pingu Night Thread Has a Bad Dream

Pingu was a stop-motion children’s series that ran in Switzerland for four seasons from 1990 to 2000 and then in the UK for two more seasons between 2003 and 2006.

The penguins speak instead in a made-up language called ‘Penguinese’, which made it easy to export the show around the world. The show saw a resurgence of popularity in the past few years due to the meme-ability of the main character’s catch phrase, “Noot noot!”
