The Show:

Not going to lie, think I'm a touch melancholy when it comes to this installment of Peppa Pig. I've reviewed several of these titles for "The Talk" already, largely because my son has liked seeing them and has a little bit of the merchandise from the show. However, I think we may have moved on a little? Someone has started taking note of different shows on Nick Jr., and I'm not sure how to handle it.

Anyway, Peppa Pig The Easter Bunny is a collection of self-explanatory episodes around Easter and the Easter bunny. The web shorts run about 5-6 minutes each and don't overstay their welcome, running just over one hour in total. Ranging from Series 3-5, they get into all of the members of Peppa's family (Daddy and Mommy Pig and Peppa's little brother George), along with some supporting members of the show, and include narration of some of the action onscreen.

The show includes a good mix of childlike innocence with an occasional dusting of adult skepticism that families will notice a flash or two of and chuckle as their kids watch and are transfixed by the Peppa show. It's not going to blow your mind, but it's not for you, though you will get a kick from how much the show goes for that toddler buy-in.

It would be nice if my kid got into Peppa Pig again so it could serve as a mini-bonding experience of sorts for my son and I, but alas all of our tastes, whether it's food, children's television shows or the list. I'm sure that I'll get something else to review that we could both enjoy but this or Sesame Street may have been the first show he was entertained by. Peppa Pig was after me, but it's a nice and enough of a longstanding premise to serve as enjoying for lots of kids.

The Disc:
The Video:

The twelve episodes of Peppa are presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen and all look OK. Like South Park, the graphics are rudimentary and pretty academic. They are vivid without oversaturated and lack any crush or pixelation issues. You don't expect any sort of monkeying around with the image on a kids' show and there isn't.

The Sound:

Two-channel stereo which doesn't get a lot to do and works fine. The closest thing to dynamic range for it is the always catchy theme song, and that sounds clean as can be. For what the source material is, Fox doesn't (and hasn't) erred with these technically.

Extras:

Zippy skippy.

Final Thoughts:

Peppa Pig The Easter Bunny is entertaining enough for your child that you can set and forget. However, there is the peril that here in July as I write this, if you put this on, you're liable to confuse your kid in thinking Easter in July. And who wants that? Technically the disc is fine and does not include extra material, nor would you expect it to. It's a decent, kind of niche release that is fine family entertainment.
