An episode of the UK childrens show Peppa Pig [previously], has been pulled off the air in Australia again for advocating playing with spiders. The 2004 episode was previously removed for saying that spiders can't hurt you. In the banned episode, Daddy Pig is seen repeatedly picking up the spider by a string from its web. The episode ends with Peppa declaring: “We are all going to have tea with Mister Skinny Leg". The cartoon’s comments that spiders are “very very small” was also judged to be inappropriate.
