An eerie Thomas the Tank Engine video has found its way on YouTube kids and one mum is mortified by the clip.

She has since issued a warning to other parents to not let their kid's watch the platform. Watch below:

Hannah Bishop took to TikTok to alert others as to how 'shocked' she was while watching YouTube kids with her two-year-old.

"Parents, beware if you let your children watch YouTube kids!" she wrote in the text overlay as a cartoon episode of Thomas the Tank Engine was playing in the background.

"I was shocked when I saw this video popular while my 2-year-old watch watching."

The video her kid watching was titled - 'I'm gonna chug, I'm gonna chew I', gonna-'.

It showed an animated Thomas travelling down a train track voicing the words to the title.

However, after saying: "I'm gonna chew," the friendly-looking cartoon character suddenly switches to a sinister face and says: "I'm gonna kill the lot of you."

"I dont even have words for this," Hannah wrote in her caption.

"Needless to say we are looking for a different subscription for Brody ro warch (sic)."

Commenting on the clip, one parent said: "We got rid of YouTube kids a while ago, it's over stimulating. pbs kids & their games app are the best."

Another pointed out: "There’s a big epidemic of gore videos being put in the middle of youtube kids videos."

Somewhat of an explanation can be found in the YouTube Kids parental guide, stating: “Our automated systems select content from the broader universe of videos on YouTube. We work hard to exclude content that's not suitable for children. But we can't manually review all videos, and no automated system is perfect. If you find something inappropriate, you can block it or report it for fast review.”

Just last December, another mum, who goes by Kellie Kellz on TikTok, revealed that her child had been watching the popular cartoon BabyBus when she overheard something shocking.

"I heard something really disturbing", she told her followers.

"So I took her iPad off her, as you do, and rewound to the beginning of the cartoon. And as a mum I felt sick.

"I'm going to attach the clip now of what's being fed into my three-year-old girl's ears."

Kelly then shared the clip from her daughter's iPad, which sees a baboon character follow a child cat into a swimming pool changing room and offering to help him change his clothes.

The cat character, close to tears, tells the horrifying baboon character that he can do it himself, clinging to a towel wrapped around his waist.

Eventually, after some very uncomfortable conversation between the two characters, 'Sheriff Labrador' and his partner burst in to save the child, accusing the baboon of 'touching his private parts.'
