When you think of Peppa Pig, ‘content not suitable for children’ doesn’t usually come to mind, but one episode of the British show was labelled ‘unsuitable’ for Australian kids.  

The five-minute episode titled ‘Spider’s Web’, was banned from our screens in 2012 as it featured a friendly spider called Mr. Skinnylegs, who was ‘harmless’. 

Now, we're preeety sure Aussie parents weren't keen for their kids to watch the episode, then go outside and play with all our 'friendly' spiders, we do house some of the deadliest spiders in the world… so look, fair enough. 

Do you think the episode should have been pulled or played? Let us know on our Facebook page!
