Frogs, Worms and Butterflies is the 17th episode of the first season of Peppa Pig.


Peppa and George visit Grandpa Pig and his garden when they decide to play with the various creatures who show up.


The Pig's show up at Grandpa Pig and Granny Pig's house. Peppa and George run down the hill into the garden, where Grandpa Pig is, and they are quickly distracted when a butterfly suddenly floats by. After she lands on one of the flowers, Peppa asks what it is doing - so Grandpa explains how a butterfly drinks from the flower. They watch as it gets a quick drink and floats onto Peppa.

Taken by how pretty it is, Peppa pretends to be a butterfly after it flies off of her. Seeing how much fun she has, George pretends to be a butterfly too; until Peppa chastises him for it and says that because she is already doing it, he should find something else to do. She looks around and picks up a worm, suggesting he pretends to be one of them and resumes her game. George doesn't really enjoy the idea of pretending to be a worm and releases it, but Grandpa Pig attempts to show him how much fun it can be. They get onto the ground and start to wiggle, which eventually catches Peppa's attention. She returns and watches them, then decides she wants to be a Worm as well and joins them.

Together they wiggle on the ground, until they decide to take a break and a frog joins them. It croaks, catching their attention. But Peppa doesn't really believe a frog can be copied or imitated - until Grandpa Pig shows her just how much a frog can do. He points out that it can hop and croak, and points out how much frogs enjoy jumping around in muddy puddles; just like they do.




  • The title is a reverse of what happens in the episode. The butterfly shows up first, with the frog last. The worm remains second though.
