Anyone else seen this and felt sick and chilled to the bone?

The fact that grown adults are actually making these kind of things and marketing them at young children...

shock

Some of them are very funny, and they are not really aimed at children.

They're like that funny Rainbow sketch that's been around for years.

You can usually find a channel of perfectly child friendly videos and make sure your child asks before clicking away. If they can't cope with that, they are too young to use YouTube unsupervised.

It's hardly chilling.

Some of them have been coming up on the (supposedly filtered) YouTube kids app though...

I've had a look at the dentist Peppa Pig one myself and it's genuinely scary - it also looks so much like 'regular' PP you'd be fooled till the screaming starts.

Filters aren't foolproof. Anyone giving young kids free access to the Internet is mad imo. You can see some very child inappropriate things even with all the safety features.
