Peep and the Big Wide World

Show Summary

Peep And The Big Wide World follows the adventures of a curious newborn chick, Peep, and his friends, Chirp the robin and Quack the duck. The three birds explore their world and learn about basic scientific principles. Each episode contains two 10-minute animated segments; at the end of each animated segment is a live action portion in which children conduct a simple science experiment that reinforces the idea of the show. Once the original episodes had aired on TLC, they were split in half (i.e. one 10-minute animated segment followed by a live action portion). These shorter versions of Peep are shown on TVO in Canada, a co-developer of the series. Watch peep and the big wide world at:PBS and DISCOVERY KIDS. Now peep is returning series on Discovery kids, and some PBS stations.

    The episode where Quack eats too many nuts remind me of the beer song! Here is the peep version that I made up!

  • An adorable little show with intelligent writing.

    I discovered this show through my baby sister, who is all of 2 months old. She's too young to understand the dialog, but the simplistic character designs and the bright colors entertain her. She especially loves Quack.



    That said, as an adult I also love this show. The animation is simple, without being lazy. The style is cute and affective and the vibrant colors make this perfect for small children. Additionally, for children old enough to understand the dialog, they should identify with the small characters and their want to discover the 'big wide world'. It's really adorable and the writing is very smart for something written for preschoolers. They could've easily had dry characters and dialog, but they don't and I myself laugh at some of the jokes (that children likely wouldn't get). The characters are unique enough to provide different opinions and situations in the episodes, and the pace is just perfect - not too fast but not a snail's pace like most preschoolers shows. Anyway, this show is adorable and can be equally appreciated by young children and adults, as long as you remember that it is intended for kids so the plots do contain lessons or morals most of the time. Luckily, these are never preachy nor condescending, making it all the more enjoyable.



    As a side note, the Paz cartoon that accompanies it is also adorable and has a similar simple style that will appeal to young children. The show also has live action segments featuring children doing some sort of activity, then encouraging the viewer to go out and do the same. This is likely good for kids, but I find these segments to be boring.moreless
  • The cutest show out there!

    This show is so cute I can't believe it! Quack the duck is so funny he doesn't even look like a duck, but that's what makes him SO CUTE!!! Peep the baby chicken is such a little, cute, pudgy...thing! I like how Chirp the robin is the smartest, but still adorable. I watch it as much as I can. I learn thing I already know, it's funny to watch baby birds learn about the park they live in. I would recamend this show for anyone who like baby shows and cute things. I've actually learned a thing or two from this show.moreless

  • This is a show for children. It is a cartoon about a chick (peep) and his friends quack and chirp. Each episode, they go on different adventures and learn different things. It is narrated by Joan Cusak.moreless

    I love this show. Even though it is for children, and I'm in high school, I still love it. I watch it every moring I can, before I go to school. It constantly makes me laugh and has a clean humor that goes over the kids' heads to appeal to adults. The characters are amazing and their personalities are all very well developed. I love the animation. Despite it's simplicity at first-glance, it is very detailed. The movement of the characters, though limited, is genius.moreless
