Outraged Mum Spots Very Inappropriate Image In Children's TV Show

Let's face it, you probably didn't fully experience being a teenager if you didn't spend a good amount of your time drawing penises on tables, walls, school books and any other surface that takes a marker pen.

And, although people tend to out grow that sort of thing once they reach adulthood, apparently the staff responsible for animating Netflix children's show Maya the Bee have yet to reach that point in their life - much to the annoyance of one American mum.

A fuming Chey Robinson posted a clip from the show to Facebook, launching into a diatribe about the rogue member. Watch the clip here:

"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," she wrote.

If you're wondering where the penis is, Chey points out it's "right in the log behind the plants."

She continued: "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 reason why this should be in this show.

"So I'm just giving you guys a heads-up - just be careful what your kids are watching. Seriously, be mindful and hope that helps."

Of course, it's up for debate whether the image is actually meant to be a cock - or Chey is just reading too much into it - but there's actually a fairly established tradition of children's television staff sneaking NSFW references into kid's content for the #banter.

On 70s and 80s show Rainbow, for example, the presenters would often entertain themselves by sneaking in sexual innuendo, which would go straight over the heads of watching children.

This reached a crescendo in this infamous clip, which sadly - or rightly for any puritans reading - never aired:

The sketch was locked away in a vault after producers filmed it as a joke. The Maya the Bee episode, though, is still available to watch and judge for yourself.
