Parents, be sure to take a long, hard look at what your children are watching.

Netflix pulled an episode of the animated children’s show “Maya the Bee” after a still from the episode featuring a penis drawn on a log gave young viewers a premature peek into the birds and the bees.

The decidedly not-suitable-for-children image was first noticed by a mother named Chey Robinson, who shared a video of the wood-etched wood on Facebook.

“I know I’m not going crazy and I know that something like this shouldn’t be in a kids’ show whatsoever,” she wrote, according to Variety. “I’m extremely disgusted by it, there should be no reason my kids have to see something like this.”

Robinson’s post soon went viral, and the episode was finished after a stream of complaints.

The penis drawing is only on screen for half a second, but that was long enough for Netflix to pull the Season 1 episode, which initially aired in 2012.

“Maya the Bee” is about a young bee named Maya learning the ropes of life. It’s based on a German children’s book series first published in 1912, and is only distributed by Netflix.
