What in the actual hell?! 😳

When a woman in the show tells him that he should keep his penis in his pants, for instance, he listens. Which is nice. He is accountable.”

Well that’s good hmm

Proper weird (and inappropriate)

Can just imagine paedophiles using this to groom children

Denmark doesn’t have a version of April Fools Day in January, does it? And the Guardian not realise that this is a joke? Grasping at straws here.

That is quite horrible. A man with no control over his penis, has to be told by a woman to put it away, nope I can't see the funny in normalising males exposing their genitals in public or indeed falling back on women being responsible for checking men's behaviour.

Is this real? Or is Denmark a bit bored?

I..uh.. no, no words

LaVitaPuoEsserePiuBella Wed 06-Jan-21 12:23:46

I'm beyond speechless.
So children are being shown a "funny" man who exposes his penis in public??
Grooming in plain sight.

Sorry but that's hilarious. My DC would roar with laughter.

Though I don't think I could let them watch it as a decent parent.

Ummm... WTAF?

I dont know whether to laugh or cry...

I don't understand the brass neck of the person who would have come up with and pitched this show.

IDontMindMarmite Wed 06-Jan-21 12:28:55

Just think about the person that thought this up and why.

I guess it's like Mr Tickle only worse!

What were they thinking??

I think anyone with any common sense at all would hope that to be the case.

The alternative is that enough adults actually thought this was an acceptable concept for a show aimed at children under 8, and not one of them questioned it and that thought is even more terrifying than the TV show.

Seems like lockdown has sent Danish TV producers a bit mad grin

Whatwouldscullydo Wed 06-Jan-21 12:34:17

How many put their hands up do ya reckon when the producer asked " l need someone to help me keep this as realistic as possible who can help " ....

Mr Tackle?

Roger the Todger?

Proper weird - and not a little inappropriate.

MrsWooster Wed 06-Jan-21 13:26:51

Well played, buffet!

tvsnacking Wed 06-Jan-21 13:29:28

It is not a joke. It is for real sad

Hurtandupset2 Wed 06-Jan-21 13:33:35

What the fuck!?

I...I can't believe anyone could think this was appropriate for any child, let alone 4-8 year olds!!

Poor man can't control himself....so what's new?!
Normalising this to children, especially young girls, is a terrible idea....beyond terrible, actually.

I just have no words.

When is this madness going to end?

Snowisfallinghere Wed 06-Jan-21 13:35:45

I think it depends how it's done, I mean kids love books about poos, farts, bums and toilets etc and this could just be a harmless extension of that toilet humor theme and maybe there's something positive they'll get across, who knows. I'm not defending it as I haven't seen it, but I like to keep an open mind.
