1. How old is Grandpa Pig?

Grandpa Pig celebrated Grandpa Pig’s birthday in season 6 “Grandpa Pigs Birthday”. He had 7 candles on his cake, so we presume he is 70 years old. This was also Peppa and George’s first time visiting a restaurant! They celebrated with party hats, balloons, and spaghetti, of course!

2. What is Grandpa Pig's Train called?

Grandpa Pig built his own train called ‘Gertrude’. Gertrude is “a miniature locomotive” and is fitted with “car wheels so she can go anywhere she likes” without railway tracks. Peppa and George love Grandpa Pig’s train - Peppa said “Gertrude is the very best train in the whole world”. Peppa even has a song for the train. It goes;

Grandpa’s little train goes chu chu chu
Grandpa’s little train goes chu chu chu
All day long

Even though it’s only a little train, he recuses Mrs Rabbit’s passengers when her big train breaks down. He helps Mrs Rabbit fix her tain because he is good at mending things.

3. Does Grandpa Pig have a boat?

Grandpa Pig has his own boat and loves to take Peppa and George sailing. Grandpa Pig is the captain of the boat and is in charge. On the boat, Peppa and George must always wear a lifejacket. Grandpa Pig races his boat with Grandpa Dog and wins!

More about Grandpa Pig  

Grandpa Pig is very competitive. He and his best friend Grandad Dog often argue about who is the best at sailing. Grandad Dog also has a sailing boat which he thinks is better than Grandpa Pig’s. Once when they raced, Grandpa Pig ran out of petrol because he was going too fast and Grandad Dog had to tow him. 

Grandpa Pig loves it when Peppa and George visit him and Granny Pig at their house.  They often babysit Peppa and George when Mummy and Daddy Pig go out.  Grandpa Pig loves watching boring programmes (nature programmes).
