Hiccups is the eleventh episode of the first series of Peppa Pig.

Synopsis Edit

George gets hiccups after he drinks his juice too fast, so Peppa tries to help rid of them.

Plot Edit

The Pig Family are busy eating breakfast when Peppa and George drink their juice, excited to go outside and play. George drinks his juice really fast like Peppa, despite Daddy Pig and Mummy Pig warning him not to do this. He starts to hiccup, which Peppa finds amusing. Mummy decides that they shouldn't go out until he gets over his hiccups, but later reconsiders after telling Peppa to keep an eye on him.

They run outside and play with the spotted ball but they find this too difficult as George keeps hiccuping and can't keep hold of it. Peppa yells at him for hiccuping and tries to think of a way to rid of them. She first tells him to repeat what she does and starts by rubbing the top of her head and tummy, then when it doesn't work she comes up with another cure. One that involves jumping up and down three times on one leg, then she makes him wave his arms and stick out his tongue, then makes him close his eyes and turn around three times.  George falls over and continues to hiccup and by now is starting to get frustrated. Peppa gets another idea and tells George that she must give him a shock to cure the hiccups. She warns him that she will scare him but reminds him that it is only pretend, then makes a very loud snort; which scares George anyway, and bursts into tears. 

Mummy Pig joins them and scolds Peppa for being too rough with George, but Peppa claims she only did it to try to help him. It seems to have worked however, and the hiccups appear to be gone.   Daddy Pig appears with some juice for everyone and they one again remind George not to drink too fast. He listens, but Peppa insists that because she isn't so little, she doesn't need to be as careful. This proves to be problematic however, and she winds up giving herself hiccups. Everyone finds this amusing, except for her for the first few minutes, then they all laugh as the episode ends.
