Peppa Pig is going to court.
EOne, which owns the massively popular franchise, is suing Vietnamese-owned studio Sconnect, which operates several animation kids’ channels. They include Wolfoo, which stars an anthropomorphic wolf and his pals. Social media users have previously noted the similarities between Wolfoo and Peppa Pig.
There are three verified Wolfoo channels, which have more than 26 million subscribers between them. That’s about as many as the official Peppa Pig channel has. Sconnect’s portfolio of animation channels also includes WOA Luka (5.3 million subscribers) and Max’s Puppy Dog (1.4 million).
