Parents complain about cartoon video for children’s channel Barnkanalen showing penises and vaginas smiling and dancing

Sweden has been gripped by a furious row over a children’s cartoon depicting prancing genitals.

The one-minute clip for Barnkanalen – Sweden’s equivalent of CBeebies – shows cartoon penises and vaginas smiling and dancing to the tune of a song which employs words perhaps sometimes used by small children to refer to their private parts.

“Here comes Willie at a run, he has no pants,” goes the song. “Twinkle is cool, you better believe it, even on an old lady … Willie and Twinkle, what a great gang!”

The clip, viewed almost 3m times on YouTube and Facebook, was produced for Bacillakuten, a programme that aims to educate children aged three to six about the body.

The song’s Facebook page includes outraged comments by some parents who are offended that children of that age should be expected to talk about genitals.

“What on earth? What the hell? Is this supposed to be educational?” wrote one. “I’ve always wondered how much drugs are being done in the children’s entertainment industry,” wrote another.

Other comments have been more supportive. “Great song about the most natural thing possible. Superb!” said one mother. “Fun song and fun video. Too bad adults turn something so nice and natural into something shameful,” noted another.

Blogger Alex Schulman objected that the clip is too sexualised, with the vaginas “prudent, innocent and sweet”, while the apparently erect penises are “wild things”.

The song was written and performed by Johan Holmström, whose previous ditties for the programme include “Pee, farting and pooping”, “I like slime”, and “Molluscs in my pants”.

Apparently a Charlie Waffles fan, that guy.

Given how the rest of the country is progressing, there's been a grievous lack of insanity in Swedish children's books and TV programming, so I'm almost relieved. After all, it's been years since Ulf Stark's Lille Asmodeus, a picture book about a baby demon who gets bored in Hell, was published.

I like to look at the human self-model as a neurocomputational weapon, a certain data structure that the brain can activate from time to time.

This cartoon is sexist against penises to boot. Typical Swedish feminist propaganda.
