Penguin Lifts His Spirits By Binge-Watching Episodes Of Pingu

Penguin Lifts His Spirits By Binge-Watching Episodes Of Pingu

In what might be the cutest thing you'll see all year, a penguin has been binge-watching his fave show, Pingu.

Told you it was cute.

Pierre, a rockhopper penguin at Perth Zoo, was feeling a little under the weather lately.

Luckily, his keepers were on hand to lift his spirits in the best way possible - by letting him watch back-to-back episodes of the iconic kids' cartoon.

One of the zookeepers told 7News: "What I have here is an iPad for our rockhopper penguin Pierre.

"Pierre is by himself in the vet department and does get a bit lonely at times, and to make his life a bit more enriching we've decided to get other rockhoppers online for him to watch."

Our new favourite penguin pal just loves watching the titular character, whether 'noot nooting' his way across the screen or throwing hilarious tantrums when he doesn't get his own way.

And it's not just Pingu that gets his endorphins flowing - apparently, Pierre's also been watching nature documentaries of penguins, as well as live streams of the flightless birds at Kansas City Zoo in the US.

"Pierre's been enjoying watching them and seeing them in their little habitats at their zoo," the zookeeper added.

You can keep track of Pierre's journey to wellness on social media - and also on a video from Nine News Melbourne, where you'll find the aquatic bird alongside the description: "Perth Zoo is caring for an endangered Northern Rockhopper Penguin who bravely swam across oceans and washed ashore on a WA beach.

"'Pierre the Penguin' is receiving plenty of TLC from staff as he regains his health, before returning to the wild."

Here's wishing Pierre all the best in his future endeavours - hopefully Pingu gives him the inspiration he needs to thrive out in the wild.

While we're on the topic, do you know who portrayed the infamous cartoon character?

The show - which ran from 1990 to 2006 - was entirely voiced by an Italian guy called Carlo Bonami until 2000.

The man took such pride in his job, he even invented his own penguin language for the characters to use - pure dedication to his art (the art of plasticine penguin voicing).

Pierre certainly appears to appreciate Carlo's efforts.
