Netflix REMOVES children's cartoon after disgusted parents spot 'PENIS' in the background

Netflix REMOVES children's cartoon after disgusted parents spot 'PENIS' in the background”

Whether they remove the image from the episode and re-release it remains to be seen.

Screen caps of the tree with the phallic image made the rounds on social media earlier this week.

One of the best thing about having Netflix (besides binge watching Stranger Things) is its great kids' content.

Meanwhile, Variety reported Netflix has pulled the offending episode, but "has yet to make a statement about the penis' presence or the removal of the episode".

It all began when a mother expressed her disgust on Facebook after spotting the image while watching the show's 35th episode with her child.

She can be heard to say in the video: "I know I'm not going insane and I know that something like this shouldn't be in a kids' show whatsoever".

Ah, children's cartoons: so innocent, so few penises - usually.

An episode of Maya The Bee was pulled from Netflix after one eagle-eyed mother spotted something in the background.

"I don't know if they're gonna like do something about this or what", Robinson, whose Facebook page's privacy setting did not allow for us to see and share her full original post directly, continued.

It is worth mentioning that the penis drawing was discovered on Netflix around the same time the mockumentary drama series American Vandal premiered. Robinson pointed out what certainly looks like a penis in the base of the tree.

Netflix have yet to comment on the incident.
