That Episode Of Peppa Pig Playing With A Spider Was On Again

Aussie parents are furious after an episode of Peppa Pig that shows the animated character picking up a spider was shown on TV AGAIN!

The episode in question was originally pulled from the ABC back in 2012, but it has aired again just last week, this time on Foxtel's Nick Jr channel.

The episode, called  Mister Skinny Legs, sees both Peppa and her little brother George handling a spider, with viewers believing it sends the wrong message to it's young viewers.

One concerned mother said:

'A lot of kids will see it on TV and think "Oh I can do that because monkey see monkey do",'

A spokesperson for Nickelodeon have now confirmed that the episode will be pulled from any future broadcast

'Nick Jr. prides itself in creating a safe environment for its audience and bases all programming decisions upon internal guidelines in accordance with all Australian regulatory and legal obligations,'

'While the episode does meet our criteria, after careful consideration we have made the programming decision to remove it from the Nick Jr. rotation.'
