How tall is Peppa Pig?

According to Insider, over the summer, rumors began swirling that Peppa Pig is over 7 feet tall even though she's just 6 years old! One Twitter user posted a photo from Google claiming that the popular cartoon character is 7'1," which is as tall as some NBA players! 

At this time, the true height of Peppa has not been confirmed or clarified. Another report from Fandom suggests that the pig is only 3'9," which actually makes way more sense in our opinion. That said, her actual height is really unknown.

Despite Peppa's actual true height, fans couldn't help but blow up social media with funny memes and theories about it. "Fun fact: Peppa Pig and Shaquille O’Neil are the same height and I’m terrified," one said. "Need a man who’s the same height as Peppa Pig please," another joked.

And then came the puns! "Peppa Pig Is Now Peppa Big," one hilariously wrote on the social media platform. "Why did we let her become this powerful?" another responded.

The best ones were the ones where users pointed out that if Peppa is over 7 feet tall, then her parents must be literal giants. One meme joked that Daddy Pig is over 14 feet tall, Mummy Pig is over 11 feet tall, and George Pig over 4 feet tall.
