So Peppa Pig seems harmless to me

Not so in China where the looming crackdown has begun

Beijing appears keen to quell subversive enthusiasm for the cartoon by trying to promote friendly domestic pig cartoons instead.
... In recent months, state media have signalled their increasing discomfort about the growing influence of the cartoon.

They have noted that its characters have become the subject of what they call deviance and manipulation among Chinese youths.
Has China got a problem with censorship ?

Ham-fisted attempt at controlling media. I expect the Chinese are crackling with laughter that the govt seems disgruntled.

Quite a sty-lish way of expressing rebellion. I hope its not hogwash from a boared OP.

Not a single 'bringing home the bacon' joke yet. Standards are slipping.
