It begins with a dark premise of how the idyllic setting of Peppa’s life is actually a made up reality of Peppa’s grandmother- perhaps as a way to deal with the tragedy that this fan fiction piece had crafted for her family
It begins with Peppa being a sickly child and her parents injecting her with poison as an act of mercy to stop her suffering.
This would’ve been very confusing for children, if it ever found its way in a Peppa Pig episode.
But this is only the beginning of the misery that will soon befall Peppa’s family and friends.
Sazuki then wraps up the story by finally killing off Granny Pig who narrated her story to Patrik. Patrik in turn sells the story to Nickelodeon.
This version of Peppa Pig is certainly for mature audiences only, with a triggering effect for some who are dealing with depression. It does however prove that it has seeped so deeply into the consciousness of this generation that its fans are able to take the narrative and make it their own.
