The internet has exploded with commentary about one scene in the show CoComelon Lane, which is a spinoff of the popular animated series CoComelon. The episode in question features two fathers fawning over a little boy dancing around in a tutu and tiara.

Daily Wire podcast host Matt Walsh addressed the episode on his Wednesday show. “Another popular children’s program has decided to go all-in on Left-wing indoctrination,” he began. 

“The clip circulating on social media today is from episode 8 of the show’s recently released first season. In the clip, we see a young boy — a character named Nico — dancing around in a dress and a tiara while his two gay dads look on approvingly. It’s so on-the-nose that you’d be forgiven for assuming that it must be a parody. But it is not. Not intentionally, anyway,” Walsh continued.

Walsh went on to mention how all iterations of CoComelon should be banned because they are “annoying and obnoxious.” 

“Bad music, bad voice acting, very bad, lifeless, ugly animation. The whole show looks and sounds like something that was generated in 12 seconds by AI,” the podcast host continued. But putting all those complaints aside, the more concerning aspects of this episode are the blatant attempts to force radical gender theory on toddlers,” he said.

“Whatever the message is, the child watching the show will be perfectly susceptible to it,” Walsh went on. “Netflix has your child where they want him. Sitting there, eyes glued to the screen, passively absorbing whatever images, sounds, and ideas emerge from it. And if your kid happened to be watching Episode 8 of CoComelon Lane, he would passively absorb the idea that it’s normal for boys to dress like girls, and that there’s nothing strange about a child having two dads.”

He added that it was intentional to debut this scene in episode 8 because it’s more likely parents wouldn’t notice it by then. 

“Like any groomer, it wants to lure parents into a false sense of security,” the podcast host said. “They see the first couple of episodes, everything looks pretty normal and harmless, not knowing that the gay dads and the cross dressing kid is buried midway through the eighth episode. It’s all very deliberate, and very evil, and sadly very effective.”

Daily Wire Editor Emeritus Ben Shapiro also discussed the CoComelon Lane episode on his Wednesday show.

“I mean, this is the kind of crap that many people are allowing their kids to watch,” Shapiro said. “It is confusing to them. It is indoctrinating them into a particular leftist point of view about human relationships and gender and sex and all the rest to very small children. You don’t need this.”

Shapiro went on to remind listeners that Bentkey remains the perfect antidote to this “garbage” television. 

Daily Wire co-founder Jeremy Boreing also commented on the episode, saying that scenes in children’s shows like this one are why The Daily Wire launched Bentkey in the first place.

“This is why we built Bentkey.com. Parents need options. Bentkey is the way,” Boreing shared on X.

CoComelon Lane, a spinoff of the wildly popular animated CoComelon series, was released on Netflix on November 17.
