"Noot noot" - Pingu as he raises the flag over Reichstag, Battle of Berlin, 1945.

At long last, the wait is finally over. Quite possibly the most anticipated, highly praised, Academy Awards nominated piece presented by Polygon Pictures: Pingu In The City has finally come to its conclusion. There were tears, laughs, sighs of relieve, and joyous times all around the globe on March 31st, 2018.

Making its debut on Oct 7th 2017, fans, viewers, and even haters would rejoice for the Second Coming of animes. Some people were even skeptical about Pingu in a new environment; surrounded by the city lights, away from his igloo, making read more

Pingu in the City is an amazing show with plenty of laughs. The characters are charming and the humor is top notch. The mimicking of the claymation stayed true to the original concept and the lack of dialogue makes this a universally appealing anime with no language barrier. Pingu in the City is very episodic and realistically you could watch any episode in any order back to back as there isn't any real overarching story. This is a simple kids show and a great one at that. Very little shows can capture the charming, carefree nature of children as well as this did. I personally read more

Review in brief: Pingu’s surprise anime reboot, while a resounding hit with pre-established fans of the European claymation series, is difficult to recommend to newcomers despite being fairly entertaining in its own right. Though this short series provides simple fun, it’s a definitive step down from the older claymation seasons. That said, if you’re already a fan you’ll probably like Pingu in the City just fine.

Review in full: Though this review is solely about Pingu in the City, it would be difficult to truly understand what’s right or wrong about it without looking back to its source. Originating from Switzerland read more
