PAR­ENTS have taken the ABC to task af­ter it dropped a pop­u­lar chil­dren’s pro­gram.

Frus­trated par­ents bom­barded the ABC Kids for Par­ents Face­book page yesterday, claim­ing their chil­dren cried and had “melt­downs” af­ter Cu­ri­ous Ge­orge – a show about an in­tel­li­gent mon­key – was pulled from the 6.20pm times­lot on ABC for Kids.

Some of the posts in­cluded photos of cry­ing chil­dren. Most par­ents said the show was part of their child’s bed­time rou­tine.

ABC Chil­dren’s Tele­vi­sion chan­nel man­ager Luka Skan­dle said the pro­gram was be­ing rested and would re­turn on Oc­to­ber 5.
