Netflix Pulls Children’s Cartoon After Parent Spots Hidden Penis Drawing
As a parent, I've caught on to a few jokes that writers put into children's programs that only adults would get. But I've never noticed something like this!
Chey Robinson noticed an image hidden in an episode of "Maya the Bee", some graffiti showed up in the background of a scene. Somebody put a drawing of a penis on a log.
In a now deleted Facebook post, Chey said: “Please be mindful of what your kids are watching!! I did NOT edit any images whatsoever, this is Maya The Bee, Season 1, Episode 35. I know I’m not going crazy and i know that something like this shouldn’t be in a kids’ show whatsoever. I’m extremely disgusted by it, there should be no reason my kids have to see something like this. I don’t know if they’re gonna do something about this or what but there’s no reasons why this should be in this show.”
The show originally aired in 2012 and is based on a children's book series. Netflix has since pulled the offending episode.
