Peep and the Big Wide World (known as Peep) is an American-Canadian animated television show created by Kaj Pindal.

Peep and the Big Wide World was based on the 1988 short film Peep and the Big Wide World (of the same name) produced by the National Film Board of Canada, which itself is based on the 1962 short film The Peep Show, also produced by the National Film Board of Canada.

Peep and the Big Wide World premiered on April 17, 2004, on Discovery Kids and on TLC as part of their Ready Set Learn children's block, and on the same day on TVOKids and Discovery Kids produced by WGBH-TV, 9 Story Entertainment, Eggbox LLC, Alliance Atlantis and Discovery Kids.

Carriage on the Discovery children's networks ended on October 16, 2010 with the discontinuation of Ready Set Learn and the replacement of Discovery Kids with The Hub, and now, Discovery Family. It continues to be offered to public television stations via independent public television distributor Discovery Communications to the present day. Since January 1, 2018, the series is distributed by both Discovery Kids and APT. Throughout its run, it has been underwritten by the National Science Foundation, with Northrop Grumman underwriting season four in 2010.

Each episode consists of two 9-minute stories, which are animated segments, and two 2-minute live action segments, in which children explore and demonstrate the same topic presented in the animated segment.
