  1. Peppa Pig and the Muddy Puddles - Peppa Pig is back! Get ready to join in on two new adventures starring the beloved, award-winning U.K. sensation. There’s so much rain! When Mummy Pig and Daddy Pig tuck them into bed, Peppa and her little brother, George, dream of all the puddles there will be to jump in the next day. Little do they know that the rain is turning their house into an island surrounded by water — making for a different kind of adventure for everyone!

  2. Peppa Pig and the Great Vacation - Will this be Peppa’s greatest vacation ever? Mummy Pig, Daddy Pig, Peppa, and George are off to the warm, sunny seaside. It’s too bad Goldie the goldfish can’t come along, but Granny Pig and Grandpa Pig will look after Peppa’s beloved pet. There’s lots to do on vacation — send postcards, have pizza for lunch, take a nature walk, and of course go to the beach. It’s a great vacation indeed, and Granny Pig and Grandpa Pig have taken very good care of Goldie. Maybe too good!

  3. Peppa Pig and the Vegetable Garden - Gardening is more fun with Peppa! Peppa and her little brother, George, love to help Grandpa Pig in the garden. They discover that everything grows from seeds planted in the dirt, and that even the apple that falls on Grandpa Pig’s head has seeds inside! Join the amiable Peppa and her spirited family as they shoo away birds and “monsta” snails, imitate butterflies and worms, make a scarecrow, and gather ingredients for a fresh salad — and Granny Pig’s delicious blackberry pie.

  4. Peppa Pig and the Lost Christmas List - It’s almost Christmas, and Peppa Pig and her little brother, George, are mailing their letters to Santa. All of Peppa’s friends are there, too, and each one tells Peppa the special gift on their list. Peppa is excited to help Daddy Pig and Mummy Pig pick out and decorate their enormous tree, and she can’t wait for the big day to arrive. But little does she know that a surprise is in store on Christmas Eve, and that she may play a part in saving the day! Peppa is the endearing star of Peppa Pig — a BAFTA-winning preschool TV series that has been a long-running success in the U.K. and is now winning devoted fans in the U.S. with daily showings on Nick Jr. Peppa and her little brother, her daddy, her mummy, and her many friends arrive at Candlewick just in time for the holiday season, poised for much muddy puddle jumping and more new adventures to come.
