Netflix has pulled an episode of a children’s show Maya the Bee after a viewer noticed what looked like a drawing of a penis on a tree trunk in one of the scenes.

Screen caps of the tree with the phallic image went viral earlier this week, Screen caps streaming service to take action.

Chey Robinson, a concerned mother, appears to have been the first to share a clip from the show, writing on Facebook, “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.”

Netflix has yet to make a statement about the penis drawing or the removal of the episode. It’s also unclear whether Netflix will re-edit the scene and return it to the lineup.

Maya the Bee, based on a German children’s book series first published in 1912, debuted in 2012. It was created by Studio 100 Animation and Netflix is only a distributor.

  1. Years ago parents were up in arms because they THOUGHT the characters on the PBS
    show Tele Tubbies were gay.

    Now someone has supposedly seen a phallic symbol up in a tree.
    WTF?

    That’s why I still like Looney Tunes. Good ole Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd.
    No drama with them–LOL
