Mummy Pig at Work

Camping is the eighth episode of the 1st series of Peppa Pig.


The Pig Family are on their way to the Campsite they plan to spend the day at. They arrive and get out, and Peppa and George quickly run to the spot where Daddy Pig brings a pile of material; some string, hammer, and metal pegs. He puts the tent together, but it doesn't stay up and he can't figure out why until Mummy Pig reminds him of the pegs, which need to be hammered into the ground.

Peppa is worried that the tent isn't big enough for them all but Daddy Pig insists that it will be fine. So they run off to gather sticks when Daddy Pig mentions being hungry. They get enough and return, where Daddy tries to show them how to make a fire - something that takes him quite some time to do. But when he finishes, they put the pot onto it in order to cook Tomato Soup.

While they wait they discuss the strange sounds of nature to pass the time. They hear crickets, an owl, and a strange sound that startles everyone. They determine it to be Daddy's tummy and the soup appears to be done, so they take it off and everyone starts to eat.

After they decide to go to bed. Peppa again voices concern over them fitting, and in the end, it turns out she was right, because Daddy Pig is unable to squeeze in. He claims this is fine though, since he'd rather sleep out on the grass anyway. So they all exchange Goodnights and go to bed.

At first Daddy Pig is doing fine and enjoys the late evening sky, but suddenly it begins to pour down rain!

The next morning everyone exits the tents to find Daddy Pig has gone missing. They worry over him until they hear snoring nearby and follow it to see that he is in their car. He awakens and explains that he ended up there to shelter himself from the rain, then he lays back down while expressing his enjoyment of camping, which makes everyone laugh.



  • This is the second episode where Peppa's house is not seen. The first time was in "The Playgroup".
