A synopsis of the story

Peppa Pig: Festival of Fun is a collection of short animated movies including: The Petting Farm; A Visit to the Zoo; Bird Spotting; Super Potato Movie; Pizza! Pizza!; Strawberries; Children’s Festival; Muddy Festival; TV Land; Roman Day and Grandpa Pig’s Birthday.   These are interspersed with live entertainment by a diverse group of young children who continue the theme of the previous short film. The children sing and dance and invite the members of the audience to join in with them. Children will love watching Peppa and George splash in muddy puddles, learn about animals at a petting farm and at the zoo, give Grandpa a fun birthday party and discover how television shows are made.

Themesinfo

Children and adolescents may react adversely at different ages to themes of crime, suicide, drug and alcohol dependence, death, serious illness, family breakdown, death or separation from a parent, animal distress or cruelty to animals, children as victims, natural disasters and racism. Occasionally reviews may also signal themes that some parents may simply wish to know about.

Use of violenceinfo

Research shows that children are at risk of learning that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution when violence is glamourised, performed by an attractive hero, successful, has few real life consequences, is set in a comic context and / or is mostly perpetrated by male characters with female victims, or by one race against another.

Repeated exposure to violent content can reinforce the message that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution. Repeated exposure also increases the risks that children will become desensitised to the use of violence in real life or develop an exaggerated view about the prevalence and likelihood of violence in their own world.

There is no violence in this movie but some slapstick comedy, such as:

  • There is one occurrence in which Potato Man is demonstrating to the children how he flies, and he crashes into the ceiling. Ms Rabbit must rescue him by helicopter, and she does this by placing a suction cap on his head and pulling him out through the roof.
