Posts similar to these have been cycling through my Facebook feed... I think its important given quiet a few members here are parents - also youtube isnt doing anything about this - while harmless content, like Greg's is being demonized and even taken down. Something really needs done about this

2019 Update: trending now is the momo challenge. I encourage parents to be aware of what their kids are doing online, especially little kids. YouTube is trying to be more aware, but videos are still being put up and deleted frequently.

Parents: Please please please monitor what your kids are watching on YouTube or Kids YouTube. If they're going to watch shows, watch with them! Supervision is so important. There's some things that are just NOT for kids but disguised as kids shows with kids characters. I screen shotted these just now watching peppa pig with my daughter. Peppa Pig is weird enough but this channel has taken the likeness of the characters and twisted them with scary weird themes... comments say that kids are left crying. Please be aware of what your kids are watching. They get past the filters because of the characters and they're marked for kids and will autoplay if no one is paying attention. THESE ARE FAKE VIDEOS USING KIDS CHARACTERS. They show up on both YouTube Kids and regular YouTube due to the characters and the content is unmonitored. Please FLAG THESE if you see anything similar. The thumbnails do change often so be careful, one you think is okay will suddenly have a horrible thumbnail on it.

*Parents should also be aware of things like suicide games. Apps, shows, etc using kids characters to get kids to do extremely harmful things and teaching them how to kill themselves.

One example I read recently was using characters from a TV show called The Winx Club and it had a step by step tutorial of how to become a fire fairy by turning on your oven and turning on the stove and letting the magic gas fill the house and to make sure to do it at night so no one hears you or it will ruin the magic. The little girl in the article ended up severely burned over most of her body after blowing up the kitchen.

Please be aware.

***update: the thumbnails change frequently!! I saved some links and now the thumbnails are all normal but the things in episode are still twisted. There's also other characters such as Micky Mouse, Spiderman, Elsa, etc. ***

 I think it's creepy as hell, but the internet is full of deranged content and it's the parents' responsibility not to let kids watch Youtube without supervision. Not that I want to defend it - absolutely not - but I wonder if maybe this is some conspiracy to demonstrate how much we leave children alone with internet access, and force parents to reevaluate the way they let their children access the internet. It reminds me of Elsagate, which had the purpose of introducing fetish content to children's minds.

Isn't this a popular Youtuber too?

Is there anyway that Greg could make a video on this? Maybe if all of the youtubers brought this to light YouTube would have no choice but to be more strict on children’s content

That's a good idea, from parent to parent.
