Disney Channel Broadcasts Porn!

Porn played on Disney Channel in N.J.

MIDDLETOWN -- Children here got more than they bargained for when they tuned into "Handy Manny" on the Disney Channel this week. Now cable giant Comcast is investigating how hardcore pornography was broadcast during a popular cartoon program.

 

Customer Paul Dunleavy would also like to know. He was stunned Tuesday morning to find his 5-year-old son watching something other than a cartoon about a bilingual Latino handyman, Manny Garcia, and his talking tools.

 

"It was two people doing their thing, it was full-on and it was disgusting," the Middletown father of three told The New York Daily News for today's newspapers.

 

"I couldn't believe it," he said. "We try to do the right thing to protect our kids from this stuff, and then they broadcast it on children's TV."

 

Comcast spokesman Fred DeAndrea confirmed the programming error occurred around 9:30 a.m. Tuesday. He described it as an "isolated issue in a local New Jersey facility."

 

"We automatically detected the issue and it was corrected promptly. We apologize to any customer who experienced an issue yesterday morning," said DeAndrea, who said the mistake was made by his company, not Disney.

 

DeAndrea declined to provide the duration of the pornography broadcast, how many homes it reached, how the mistake happened and whether anyone will be disciplined for the X-rated error.

 

A Disney Channel spokeswoman said the company has asked Comcast for assurances that appropriate measures were taken to prevent such offensive incidents from happening again.

 

"We value the trust that parents have in our programming and certainly take yesterday's regrettable program disruption extremely seriously," said Disney Channel spokeswoman Karen Hobson. "Comcast has taken full responsibility for this situation, and we understand that they are currently working to determine the root cause of the incident."

 

Dunleavy told The Daily News that he received an apology directly from Comcast.

Looks like some kids are going to get "the talk" a little bit sooner than planned.

I remember a long time ago, someone had videotaped porn over a family tape and returned it to the video rental place!

 

The forever urban legend that happens to be true.

 

Does anyone remember when pornographic scenes appeared on VHS copies of "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?"

 

It wasn't just the VHS copy, but the laserdisc too! I can expect that on VHS but really. I thought laserdisc was better than that!

When I was working on the Aladdin video game I got the chance to work very closely with some of the Disney animators. One of the guys I was working with was an animator on Roger Rabbit who SWORE up and down that it was a mistake in painting, and that the panites never actually got painted ANY color and the camera picked them up and being black.

 

There are other thing that he totally confirmed were there on purpose (like the Little Mermaid penis thing) but he did say that the Roger Rabbit thing was a total fluke, and while it looks like Jessica's vagina, they were unable to take credit for that one!

Wow, the Little Mermaid penis thing was on purpose! I always thought that was a fluke as well. It is phallic, but it never seemed to be too definite. Subtle work. Well, as subtle as a penis stalagmite can be.

 

On a similar but different topic, Robb, was it you who put the "Aladdin wears the Mickey ears and get a life" thing in the Aladdin games?

Somebody probably got confused and tried to broadcast the "Handy Manny" tv show, but broadcast a porno of the same name instead.. mistakes happen....

 

One of our lessons in art class a couple of years ago was to analyze different videos... the ghost in "Three Men and a Baby", the "Aladdin" "all teenagers take off your clothes" thing, and "The Little Mermaid" penis thing all were shown! I have to say it was a great lesson...

This does happen though. My Video teacher was telling us a few semesters ago how someone who worked for the same station he did got bored and flipped on a porn. Not realizing that he didn't hit the right button and the porn ended up being broadcast on television.
