Would it be a problem if in an Australian web series for preschoolers, I used typically American language?

Hello, fellow tropers. I am intending to write a web series for preschoolers, about young animals and the struggles they face as preschoolers. The show will use gratuitous amounts of toilet humor, as many preschool age children enjoy toilet humor. However, I am at lost on whether to use pee/poop as words, as thatís what I prefer, but on the other hand, wee/poo are preferred in Australia. I really dislike those words, though. So, would it be a problem if in a preschool-targeted web series, I used words that I prefer instead of words commonly used in Australian media?

Toss a coin. I am not sure that the details of body function language would be important to an audience. If you are going by realism, you probably want to check which terminology is used where...

Mainly because this show is targeted at preschoolers, and made in Australia. Oftentimes, British preschool shows are dubbed for the US, and vice-versa. This is because they want to use the terminology that would be native to the particular area.

Probably. They're very young - use their priors.
