Netflix Pulls Out Too Late: Penis Drawing Spotted in Kids Series Before Network Removes It


According to all known laws of children’s entertainment, there is no way a phallic symbol should be able to make it into a kid’s cartoon series — but then came the Netflix original series Myah the Bee.

The show is an animated series based on a children’s book and it raised eyebrows in the past few days when a number of concerned parents spotted a penis drawing in one of the episodes. Despite Netflix removing the penis-bearing episode, receipts were kept as a number of parents took to social media to share their crude findings.

Chey Robinson, the upset Netflix customer who originally saw the phallic image, took to Facebook — as mother’s do these days — to warn other parents of the graphic symbol, “Please be mindful of what your kids are watching!! 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.”
