Peperami news.jpg

The Animal is the stop-motion animated mascot of pork sausage snack Peperami and has been since he first appeared in 1991. He is a living Peperami who speaks with an English accent and in most adverts is seen harming himself: eating his own arms, jumping into a blender, pulling himself apart and putting himself on a skewer and jumping onto a barbecue.

Animal was voiced by English actor and comedian Adrian Edmondson (known for playing Vyvyan in The Young Ones and Eddie Hitler in Bottom) from 1991-2010 and since 2014 by Scottish actor and impressionist Enn Reitel (who does a impression of Edmondson).

Animal isn't the only living Peperami as in the late 1990s there was two short-lived Peperami products called Peperami Cheezie which featured a yellow Peperami who worked as a DJ and Peperami Gobbler which featured a female Peperami.

In 2018 and 2019, Animal was joined by two other Peperamis; Beef (who is the mascot of Beef Peperami) and Chicken (who is the mascot of Peperami Chicken Bites).

Animal has been inspired by the lion from the car brand Peugeot
