Some concerned parents are in an uproar over a drawing of a penis that appeared on the Netflix animated children’s show Maya the Bee.
The streaming giant pulled the episode of the show with the image in it, but not before people took screenshots of the crude drawing and posted them to social media.

Very bad for kids to be looking at that from a young age
Let’s kids be kids for goodness sake

In a Facebook post that has since been removed, a mother, Chey Robinson, first brought attention to the image (which appears on the side of a rock in the show), reportedly writing, “Smh [shaking my head], please be mindful of what your kids are watching. I did not edit any images whatsoever, this is ‘Maya The Bee,’ season one, episode 35.”
She then shared a screengrab and the clip in which the image appears, which can be viewed below.
The show, which is an adaptation of a children’s book by Waldemar Bonsels, follows a young bee named Maya who leaves her hive to discover the beauty and mysteries of nature, making new insect friends along the way.
