Does this look like a d**k to you?

The late ’80s and early ’90s were high time for adult-themed content getting worked into children’s films. There was the priest’s boner in the Little Mermaid, the sex dust in the Lion King, and the “good children take off their clothes” from Aladdin.

It was all the rage to subtlely sneak in some sexual content for the kids to see. And we all know that the late ’80s and early ’90s—with Donald Trump on the rise and Taylor Swift sampling Right Said Fred—are back in vogue. So why not bring back those X-rated animated tradition as well?

One mother is certain that in “Once Upon a Slime/The Big Eat,” episode 35 of the animated kid’s show Maya the Bee, available on Netflix, there’s a penis drawn on the side of a wall that Maya buzzes in front of.

The scene was uploaded to Facebook by Chey Robinson, but is no longer available. Thankfully, the dick clip was uploaded to YouTube.

(Update: It was brought to the Daily Dot’s attention that the obscene drawing was originally spotted by Kai Lapeyrouse and posted to Facebook on Sept. 9. Her video is below.)

Yea, that’s probably a dick.

Robinson, for her part, was furious, saying, “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.”

But that’s what we get for reviewing that dark period in our culture. Next thing you know, JNCOs will be making a comeback.
