Pimpa® was translated not only in English, Spanish, German and French but also in minorized languages such as Ladin, Friulian and Sardinian. In 2013, thanks to the initiative of ARLeF – Regional Agency for the Friulian Language, and the collaboration with RAI – Italian Radiotelevision, Quipos srl and the Friuli-Venezia Giulia Region, thirteen episodes of the successful series in Friulian were published on a DVD entitled “Pimpa® par furlan”.

Theme song

Viôt la Pimpa, vele ca
blancje e rosse dute a pois
e l’Armando mostacjon
cul cjapiel e un grant napon.

Co l’Armando al va a polsâ
Pimpa e sgarfe intal armâr
e tu puedis stâ sigûr
che un biel zûc e tire fûr.

E cumò ducj a mangjâ
che la Pimpa e à tante fam
se la storie ti à cjapât
a riviodisi e maman!
