Piggy In The Middle is episode 8 of the first season of Peppa Pig.
One day George runs outside to play with his ball in the garden. He is joined by Peppa, who insists he is doing it wrong. After watching her, he grabs his ball and runs off. But Peppa is easily able to reach him and takes the ball back.
As she teases George, they are joined by Mummy Pig. She asks Peppa what she was doing, and she claims that she was only teaching George how to play catch, so Mummy Pig suggests they play a game called Piggy In The Middle. She explains that someone must stand in the middle, the people not in the middle must throw the ball to each other while she has to try to catch it.
They begin to play and George is able to catch the ball. Mummy Pig tells George to throw the ball but he struggles to throw it past her. So he simply crawls under Mummy to hand Peppa the ball. With that they decide to put Peppa in the middle, then eventually George, but he struggles too much to catch the ball.
Peppa starts to tease him again by offering him the ball, but then she throws it past him and Mummy. George begins to cry and Mummy scolds her for acting up. Daddy Pig comes by and he helps George catch the ball, then when Peppa claims it isn't fair she asks if she can sit on Mummy's shoulder so that she can play like George. With that, the Pig Family play a game of catch by tossing the ball to each other.
Peppa: "Here you go, George." (Pretends to hand George the ball). "Wee!!"
