This paper toy is a Penguin, based on the anime series Pingu, the papercraft is created by Toy a Day. Pingu is a British-Swiss stop-motion claymated television series created by Otmar Gutmann. The series was produced by The Pygos Group and Trickfilmstudio for Swiss television, and centres on a family of anthropomorphic penguins living at the South Pole. The main character is the family's son and title character, Pingu.
The show originally ran for four seasons from 1986 to 1998 on SF DRS. Two episodes, produced in 1998, did not air during the original run. The episodes were run later, in 1999, as part of a Pingu marathon. HiT Entertainment's request for more episodes convinced Pygos to bring back the show in 2004, with two more series.
The program is set in Antarctica and centres around penguin families who live and work in igloos. The main character, Pingu, belongs to one such family. He frequently goes on adventures with his little sister, Pinga, and often gets into mischief with his best friend, Robby the Seal.
One reason for Pingu's international success its lack of real spoken language: nearly all dialogue is in an invented "penguin language" consisting of loud honking noises, though occasionally words from real languages are discernable. This was initially retroscripted by Carlo Bonomi, who created all the sound effects for the series. This feature allows people of different linguistic backgrounds to be able to follow the story.
