Awesome challenge Brun Ugle, thanks! I am in for Italian, and will be keeping track objectively of my time as well as keeping track subjectively of how annoying I find the pigs. Aiming for 15 minutes per day, and hopefully no higher than a "4" on the subjective rage scale.

Since I am late to the party and to try to catch up to the rest of you, I just finished spending the last three minutes listening to the Peppa Pig introduction in italiano exactly 1,048,576 times.

It seems that this show is dubbed in all major languages except one! (for obvious reasons)

If you mean Arabic, I looked, but I was only able to find very few episodes on YouTube and some of those weren’t even complete. I didn’t think it would be that useful with only three or four episodes, so I didn’t include it. Maybe someone who actually knows the language would have better luck than me. If someone finds a YouTube channel with a reasonable quantity of episodes in Arabic, I will include it in the list.

I can’t find Indonesian, either. And I guess that would count as “major”, arguably being 6th most spoken language in the world.

BTW Brun Ugle, i think this is a great “crazy” challenge/project. I learned much of my intermediate Indonesian from Thomas dan Teman-Teman (Thomas and Friends). I won’t be joining in but will follow with interest.

I noticed that it isn't available in Arabic or Hebrew. I think this may be due to how these cultures traditionally think of pigs.

Peppa Pig is actually available in Arabic (MSA) on Netflix, at least in France and in Italy.

Are there any cultures that don't think of pigs as dirty/likely gross?

I was able to find some Hebrew Peppa videos on YouTube. I didn't find any one playlist or channel that's exclusively dedicated to Peppa, but they're there. You just need to search for פפה

Some of the videos have a Hebrew title but English audio, but I found at least one that was dubbed into Hebrew and there should be more.

There is a fashion for keeping miniature pigs as pets in Australia, I think the trend originated from the US.

My young adult daughter wanted one when she was a teen but I said no!

Admittedly she is not a whole culture.
