Be warned, parents, of gross-out humor in 'Big Mouth'

TV rating MA LSVA TV watchdog is warning that Netflix has gone "beyond the pale" with a new animated series.  

Melissa Henson of the Parents Television Council says the new show "Big Mouth" is properly rated TV-MA for its "quasi-pornographic" episodes.

"If not outright pornographic," she warns.

The animated comedy is an attempt to take a humorous look at puberty, using pre-teen characters as young as 11 involved in what Henson calls "highly sexualized" situations.

"Doing things that we'd never see even on a live action series, even on something like HBO," she tells OneNewsNow.

Business Insider describes the show as a "vulgar, honest, and delightful" animated series in which a "hormone monster" follows children as they experience puberty.

Because the show is animated, Henson surmises Netflix feels they can get away with broadcasting the "disgusting" content. But a cartoon will obviously attract children, especially via popular Netflix.

"And if parents aren't employing parental controls," says Henson, "then there would be nothing to stop a child from being able to watch it."
