(CNN) – Denmark’s flagship broadcaster has suffered blowback over its newest children’s TV program, “John Dillermand” — an animation starring a man with a penis so massive and flexible it can save children from danger, fetch objects from a river and operate as a pogo stick.

The show, whose 13 episodes are available to watch on the DR network’s website, follows its titular character as he navigates an array of unexpected scenarios caused by his inexplicably huge genitalia.

In episode one, for instance, the mustached Dillermand uses his gigantic, stripey organ as a lead for his dog — but quickly finds himself inundated with requests from his neighbors to take their pets out for a walk, too. At another point in the show, he is stuck floating in mid-air after balloons are tied to his groin.

The show was generally met with hilarity in Denmark and across the internet, with many praising it as an appropriate and light-hearted way to teach children about the human anatomy. But some took issue with the main character’s central trait. Danish politician Morten Messerschmidt, a member of the right-wing Danish People’s Party, said children should not be forced to watch a cartoon depiction of an adult man’s groin.And a handful of parents have taken to the Facebook page of DR’s children’s network, urging them to remove the program.
