When a mother or father permits a younger little one to look at Netflix, it will normally be age-appropriate programming that makes its technique to the kid’s eyes. On the rarest of events, although, that programming may embrace one thing that is far more adult than anybody may have imagined. Such was the case with the CGI reboot of the animated collection Maya the Bee, which had one in every of its Season 1 episodes yanked off the positioning after somebody found a background drawing that appears very very similar to a penis.
The offending penis in query popped up, er, confirmed up throughout Episode 35 of Maya the Bee, the latest iteration of the basic youngsters’s e book, and anybody who heads to Netflix proper now to search for that episode will come up brief. A video of the second went viral after being shared by an upset mother, whose original post was later eliminated, and whereas it is debatable about whether or not or not it truly is a sketch of a penis, in addition to how intentional its inclusion was, Netflix’s elimination of the episode appears to verify that firm execs thought it was too shut for consolation.
You possibly can choose for yourselves how real looking the penis claims are with the pic under.
In case you could not inform the place the doubtless erotic scribbling is, it is on that bizarre tree trunk, smack dab within the center. It is actually arduous to disclaim that the resemblance is there, particularly across the…base area. Plus, it could be arduous to argue that this wasn’t intentional, since these are the one vertical traces made on the trunk itself.
Even Snopes bought in on it, as that is simply such a difficulty the place it appears like so a lot of these supposedly grownup moments that folks claimed to see in Disney’s animated hits. (That one from The Rescuers is most positively actual, although.) The positioning apparently tried to contact the French animation firm Studio 100 Animation concerning the situation, however bought no response as of this writing.
Often when TV reveals get episodes pulled, it is due to a latest occasion, comparable to a violent tragedy or something along those lines. However this episode has been up for some time now, and it is nearly positively aired on TV greater than as soon as earlier than, as this is not even a Netflix original or something, however somewhat an acquisition for Common Youngsters (previously Sprout).
Whereas that exact episode could also be gone, everybody can nonetheless take pleasure in the remainder of Maya the Bee Season 1 on Netflix proper now, and elsewhere.
