Rowan Pelling: Peppa Pig a bad influence ... well, where does that leave Tom & Jerry?
IF infant misbehaviour is derived from cartoon characters, I would have dropped anvils on my siblings’ heads in the manner of Tom and Jerry.
Step aside, Dennis the Menace. The worst kiddie role model of the modern age is that infamous miscreant Peppa Pig.
It would appear Peppa and her brother George have been inciting small children to jump in puddles, reject vegetables, splatter cake-mix and – deep breath – to mock their parents.
