Denmark has released a brand-new children’s TV show about a man with the world’s longest penis.
The animated series is based around the life of character John Dillermand and his oversized manhood.
Aimed at four to eight year olds, the daring cartoon follows the trials and tribulations of John’s giant ‘pee-pee’ – which often lands him in worrying situations.
The debut episode of the controversial series saw John floating over the city after an array of helium balloons accidentally became attached to his private parts.
The show’s opening title includes the lyrics: “He has the world’s longest pee-pee. There’s almost nothing he can’t do with it. He has the world’s longest pee-pee. He swings it around; he can get a little embarrassed. He can save the world if he’s allowed.”

The Danish equivalent of the BBC, DR, has been forced to defend the cartoon after it faced harsh backlash following its debut episode last weekend.
Taking to its official Facebook page, the public broadcaster insisted that the programme’s aim is to make children more comfortable about their bodies.
“We think it’s important to be able to tell stories about bodies,’ DR posted.
Unsurprisingly, John Dillermand and his giant penis have divided viewers, with some claiming it is inappropriate for children
“In the series, we recognise young children’s growing curiosity about their bodies and genitals, as well as embarrassment and pleasure in the body.”
Unsurprisingly, John Dillermand and his giant penis have divided viewers, with some claiming it is inappropriate for children.
“Why would you create a show like this for children? It’s so sick,” fumed one Twitter user.
“What on earth has the world come to? What’s wrong with Barney The Dinosaur? This is outrageous,” another echoed.
Some believe the show’s critics may be overthinking the main focus of the cartoon
While a third raged: “Everyone in their right mind should boycott this disgusting show!”.
Despite the backlash, Erla Heinesen Højsted, a clinical psychologist who works with families and children, told The Guardian she believed the show’s critics may be overthinking the main focus of the cartoon.

“The show depicts a man who is impulsive and not always in control, who makes mistakes – as kids do, but crucially, Dillermand always makes it right,” she explained.
“He takes responsibility for his actions. 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.”
