I see that Fireman Sam has managed to get himself entangled in an alleged religious furore.
The BBC reports that an episode of Fireman Sam, in which one character appears to tread on a page from the Koran, has been withdrawn.
The episode was first broadcast in October 2014 on Channel 5 but the "error" has only recently been spotted.
Mattel apologised and said it did not believe it was done "maliciously".
Channel 5, which broadcasts Fireman Sam, has removed the episode from its streaming website.
Miqdaad Versi, assistant secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain, tweeted: "I have no idea what went through the producer's minds when they thought this was a good idea #baffled".
He also said he had identified the page from the Koran as "Surah Mulk (67), verses 13-26".
In a statement, Mattel said:
"The page was intended to show illegible text and we deeply regret this error.Looking at the offending clip, I am at a loss to understand how (unless someone looks frame by frame) a normal viewer could even see this?
We sincerely apologise for any distress or offence it may have caused."
It said it would "no longer be working with the animation studio responsible", and would take "immediate action to remove this episode from circulation".
"We are reviewing our content production procedures to ensure this never happens again.".
How therefore was this first spotted?
