Outraged parents found the warped videos alongside official clips on YouTube Kids, a popular video app for young children.

Some of the videos have been viewed over three million times.

One video shows Princess Holly from Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom being abducted by “gangster” pigs, by capturing with her a net and dragging her into a forest while she crys.

Another video shows an unsuspecting jolly Peppa Pig viciously attacked in a forest by wild animals. 

The videos clearly aren’t for young viewers but somehow made their way onto the popular kids app among genuine episodes of Peppa Pig.

YouTube said they have removed the clips from the Kids channel app.

Meanwhile, some of the creators of the videos have revised the content, with one writing; "This is less scary version of my old Gangster video.
