Pingu is a lovable children’s character originally from Switzerland created by Silvio Mazzola. This charming little penguin with a red beak, big eyes and naughty behaviour has conquered the hearts of millions of fans all over the world. He lives in a small village with all the usual shops, a school, lots of abandoned ice sculptures to play with, a skating rink and a skittles alley. His friends are Ping and Pingo and Robby the seal. His enemies include a mean-minded seagull. The stories depict his everyday adventures and appeal to quite a broad audience beginning with toddlers and far beyond due to his fresh approach to life.
