Danish Children’s TV Show About A Man With A Massive, Unwieldy Penis Sparks Outrage From Parents


The category of “Children’s TV” doesn’t usually involve giant male genitalia.


John Dillermand, a new TV show airing in Denmark, seems to have different ideas about whether or not children’s television can or should involve such content.

The stop-motion show follows the titular John Dillermand as he navigates strange situations caused by his extremely large penis.

It also seems that Mr. Dillermand’s member can also serve as a pogo stick, a lasso of sorts, and a tool (no pun intended) for all occasions.

Dillermand is very popular throughout Denmark, with over 200,000 Danish folks tuning into episode 1.  The show has been met with “hilarity” throughout the nation for the most part.

However, not everybody is thrilled about the central conceit of the show.

“As a parent, I am mildly shaken and shocked by the line you are currently choosing,” wrote a concerned parent on Facebook to Ramasjang, the subset of the public broadcast network airing the show.

“I am deeply outraged and think it is SO perverse and inappropriate television for young children. This is the last time I let my children see Ramasjang!”

Conservative members of the right-wing Denmark People’s Party have also spoken up to criticize the show.

“I don’t believe that looking at adult men’s genitals should be made into something common for children,” wrote Morten Messerschmidt.

But creators of the show say they just want to make kids laugh, and due to the number of inane situations we see Mr. John Dillermand get into in the trailer alone, it seems to succeed in that regard.

The show will continue airing on Denmark’s public broadcasting company, known as DR.

If nothing else, the future jokes coming out of this generation of Denmark’s children will be absolutely hilarious.
