The Opening Sequence is the introduction seen at the start of every episode. Every two seasons of Pingu, the intro changed with the change in production teams.

Intro History


Intro 1

It was used for the original version of seasons 1 and 2 of Pingu. It shows animated footage of Pingu walking with a knapsack, it then zooms in on him and a blue circle forms, Pingu looks at the audience and the Pingu logo fades in, he then winks.

Intro 2

Same as the first intro, but it's all stop motion, and Pingu happily nods when he turns to the viewer, this version also has the music replaced by a portion of The Pingu Dance, this version was used on Seasons 3-4 and international airings of Seasons 1-2 in places such as Italy, Japan, as well as some initial US airings, and later on the remastered version of Seasons 1 and 2 worldwide.

Intro 3

It was used for season 5 and 6 of Pingu. Pingu pops in from the bottom right corner, and then dances, he then turns and the new Pingu logo zooms out on a blue background.

The Pingu Show

Same as the intro for the fifth and sixth season of Pingu, but "The" and Show" are Above and Below the Pingu logo respectively.
