(CNN) - Hackers replaced Muppets with explicit sex videos on the YouTube page of "Sesame Street" before it was taken offline Sunday afternoon.
A message on the show page informed users that it had been shut down due to "repeated or severe violations of our community guidelines."
There was no immediate response to the hacking from PBS, the show's producers or search giant Google, which owns YouTube.
A message posted on the page before its removal claimed responsibility in the names of two other YouTube users, one of whom denied responsibility in a statement on his own page.
A user identified as "MrEdxwx" posted on his account, "I did not hack Sesame Street. I am an honest YouTuber."
