Peppa Pig Introduces First Female Same-Sex Couple: ‘I Live With My Mom And My Other Mom’

Peppa Pig added the first female same-sex couple to its cast.

During the Tuesday (September 6) episode of the children’s television show entitled “Families,” Peppa’s friend Penny Polar Bear introduced the title character to their two mothers.

While drawing a portrait of her family, Penny explained, “I live with my mom and my other mom. A mum is a doctor and a mum cooks spaghetti.”

It’s the first time a lesbian couple has appeared on the children’s show, which airs on Channel 5 in the UK.

Peppa Pig first aired in 2004 and has become a major international hit, airing in 180 countries around the world.

Last year, a Wall Street Journal The article reported on a phenomenon it dubbed “the Peppa Effect,” in which American children who saw Peppa Pig during the pandemic had begun to adopt English accents and convert American English sentences to British ones.

A California mother recalled her child speaking to her with a British accent and asking her daughter, “Mom, are you going to the optometrist?”

In 2020, a study of violence in children’s animated series found that the British pre-school series featured “shocking” levels of violence.

One of the researchers on the study, Dr. Abbie Jordan, of Bath University, said of the findings, “These programs could help a lot more by modeling them in different ways and most importantly, showing more empathy when characters are experiencing pain.”
