A seemingly random Google search told Twitter user @Memeulous that Peppa Pig is over 7 feet tall. So, this means she towers over fellow cartoon character Caillou, who people recently discovered stands around 5 feet 11 inches.
Following this revelation, @Memeulous shared a screenshot of the search result on Twitter with the caption, “this is terrifying.”

Peppa Pig’s height is NBA-level
If the search is correct, that means Peppa Pig is as tall as star basketball player Shaquille O’Neal. As a result, people are urging the NBA to recruit her.
“NBA scouts when they see Peppa Pig’s height,” Twitter user @sometimesigif wrote, for instance.

However, some noted that it’s not Peppa Pig’s stature that should scare people. Rather, look out for her father.
“Y’all worried about Peppa Pig’s height, you should really be worried about her dad isn’t he like three times her size?” Twitter user @TheGame_MarcosL wrote.

Meanwhile, others saw her 7-foot-1 as a goal to reach.
“Need a man who’s the same height as Peppa Pig please,” Twitter user @Lammy_42_ wrote.
In short, this has been quite a week for Peppa Pig.
Following rave reviews of her debut album and now a viral meme, it seems Peppa Pig and her height are finally getting the recognition they deserve. Only a Lakers contract can top off her already stellar week.
Your move, NBA.
