Hide and Seek (sometimes known as Pingu and the Snowball Fight) is the seventh episode of the first season of Pingu


Pingu goes out to play on his sledge and meets up with Robby. The two of them soon arrive at an old ruined igloo and they play a game of hide and seek in and around it, followed by a snowball fight. Hiding behind the wall of a nearly crumbled igloo, Pingu tricks Robby by making a model of his own head out of some things bits of blubber that was left lying. Putting the head on the end of a stick, Pingu sticks it above the ruins and Robby throws a big snowball at it. The head falls off the stick and splats all over the ground. Robby realises he has been tricked and calls for his friend, who sneaks up behind him in a barrel and throws a snowball at the wall, nearly hitting the seal. Robby soon spots Pingu taunting him, and chases him. Pingu suddenly slips out of his barrel and runs to the top of a ruined igloo to get away from  Robby. The seal tries to use the barrel to catch up with Pingu and hurts himself in the process. Robby clutches his hurt head and begins to cry. Pingu feels sorry for the poor seal and tries to cheer him up with some of his famous funny moves and postures. It is only when Pingu starts doing the hoola-hoop dance with the ring of a barrel, that Robby forgets about the pain in his head and joins in with his friend's new game for the rest of the day.



  • Pingu's Igloo
  • The Ruins


  • It's unknown why on UK VHS releases it was titled "Hide & Seek" even though it focuses a lot more on Pingu & Robby's snowball fight.
  • In the scene just after Pingu scares Robby, when Robby is looking is for Pingu, look at the mound of ice that is the furthest away from the camera. A fly can be seen moving around it. This goof is only in the original version.
  • When Pingu is looking around the abandoned igloo, the igloo is clearly a different model as it is completely white when the other model has quite a few marks and scratches.
  • In the original version, before Pingu does his "Noot-Noots" to cheer up Robby, two different vocal recordings of him consoling his friend are heard at the same time.
