What I consider when I recommend these Movies/ TV shows to you
As a former guinea pig lover and a highly sensitive person, I love movies and TV shows that are funny and relatable. All of the following recommendations are comedy, rated G or PG and of course, wholesome.
There are some movies with guinea pigs that meet these requirements as well, but are either boring to watch (for me anyways) or the guinea pig(s) don’t have a good role. For example, if the guinea pig is the villain of the movie or if the artist drew the guinea pigs very ugly.
Now, let’s get on to the recommendations, if you’ve watched any of these movies or tv shows, please leave a comment of what you think in the comment section at the end of this post!
1. The Secret Life of Pets

Max, a pampered terrier, has a comfortable existence in his New York apartment until his owner brings home a new dog named Duke.

The Guinea pig in this Movie
Norman is a guinea pig who is a major character in The Secret Life of Pets and a supporting character in The Secret Life of Pets 2. He is voiced by Chris Renaud.
He is happy-go-lucky and innocent almost all the time and appears pretty reckless. When he was captured by The Flushed Pets, he was not even worried about it. Instead, he encouraged them.
2009, Action/ Adventure/ Comedy
Rating: 4.5 /5
Movie Duration: 1 hour 28 minutes
Where to watch: Disney Plus, Prime Video, Vudu, Apple TV or Redbox.
I personally love this 3D animated movie a lot. G-Force may have released in 2009, but the animation is amazing and this entire movie focuses on guinea pigs. I won’t be surprised if your guinea pigs idolize the characters in this movie 🙂
This action-packed film features an elite team of guinea pigs who are trained by the government as secret agents for their special skills (like being able to fly!). When their headquarters is destroyed by an evil scientist named Dr. Ivan Tinklebaum (yes), they have to go undercover as pets in order to stop him from taking over the world!

3. Pui Pui Molcar
Stop Motion /Comedy / Piece of life
Duration: 2 seasons, 24 episodes each. One episode is only 2 minutes
Rating: 4.6 /5 but I give it 10/5!
Where to watch: Disney+, Netflix, 9anime, Roku, Youtube
This stop-motion animated short series brings all you ever wanted in a TV show to life. Pui Pui Molcar means “guinea pig cars” in English, and it centers in the wonderful soft world where cars are guinea pigs and humans are occasionally plastic dolls as they go on thir daily lives with relatable and entertaining problems.
There is lots lots of guinea pig sounds, and no actual talking. All the guinea pig cars are very cute and this stop motion series is super wholesome and relatable to guinea pig owners, because fun fact: the creator of this film’s sister has a guinea pig too 🙂
I can’t stress enough why you should watch this – it’s so good!
Guinea Pigs in this Film
There are many guinea pigs in this film, because after all, it’s a city full of guinea pigs where they actually have to work as drivers, doctors, cheerleaders, spies, etc. Each guinea pig has a different personality, but one thing’s for sure – they all love food!
