The adventures of Pingu, the clumsy young penguin who is always up to mischief in his snowy world. His companions are his baby sister Pinga, his best friend Robby the Seal, his caring mother and his father who is the local postman.
Father decides to take Pingu out on a fishing expedition. But Pingu is frustrated when Father won't let him cut a hole in the ice even though Pingu feels that he could do a better job. When Pingu gets some big bites, Father takes over and firstly lets the fish escape, then later takes all the credit for landing a fish that Pingu had hooked.
But in the end, Father accepts that Pingu sometimes knows best, and lets his son navigate on the journey home, and gives Pingu all the credit.
