Netflix pulled an episode of “Maya the Bee,” an animated children’s cartoon, after viewers noticed a penis drawing in the background.
Chey Robinson posted a warning on Facebook, alerting parents to be careful what their children are inadvertently being exposed to.
“Please be mindful of what your kids are watching!!” Robinson wrote. “I know I’m not going crazy and I know that something like this shouldn’t be in a kids’ show whatsoever.”
She added: “I’m extremely disgusted by it, there should be no reason my kids have to see something like this.”
Netflix has since pulled the episode (season 1, episode 35) from its streaming service. Maya the Bee is animated by French company Studio 100, which called the phallic flap “a very bad joke.”
In a statement, Studio 100 said the following: “The origin of this image obviously results from a very bad joke from one of the 150 artists working on the production. This is indeed unacceptable to the Studio 100 Group as owner of the brand and all its partners and doesn’t reflect the quality of its work and its values.”
The statement continued: “Legal action has already been started. Studio 100 very much regrets this incident and would like to offer its sincere apologies to all Maya the Bee fans.”
Another mom, Ariel Wray, posted the penis sketches on Twitter, writing: “This show is on @netflix its called Maya the Bee. This episode is S1E35 around 5:14 mins in they have a #dick on the log wall.”

While the incident may seem funny, it’s ridiculous that parents have to worry about their children accidentally being exposed to penises or phallic symbols while watching kids’ television programming.
This is not the first time this has happened. For decades, perverted animators (many employed by leftist corporation Walt Disney Co.) have gotten their jollies by planting subliminal sexual images in children’s cartoons. Here are a few examples.
A movie poster for The Little Mermaid that was pinned up in theaters nationwide showed a giant erect penis hidden in the background.
A poster for Disney’s The Lion King appeared to show a topless woman in a thong hidden in the face of the lion Mufasa.
An apparent phallic symbol appears on the cover art for the Euro-Disney cartoon Bladid.
