(CBS4) NEW JERSEY Many New Jersey residents watching the Disney Channel Tuesday morning were outraged after the family-friendly programming turned into a pornographic display.
Jennie Sherman still can't believe what happened while she was watching the show "Handy Manny" with her two twin sons.
"We were just sitting here and the screen just froze and then all of a sudden I saw very graphic pornography on the television and I scrambled to get the remote to shut it off," Sherman told WCBS-TV in New York City.
Sherman said she immediately recorded the X-rated graphic video on her DVR. She then e-mailed wcbstv.com to report the shocking news.
44. A buddy of mine was complaining that his mother in law is like that

She actually seems to go out of her way to find things to "trip" over at places like Wal Mart and Home Depot and such, then she'll spend an hour in the manager's office threatening law suits until she gets a nice gift certificate or some sort of apology. She seems to just be waiting for her big "payday."
CHILDREN in New Jersey asked awkward questions when a cable TV company broadcast hard-core porn instead of a Disney cartoon.
"It was two people doing their thing, it was full-on and it was disgusting," said Dunleavy, who asked that his son not be named. "It wasn't something you'd expect to see on Cinemax, never mind Disney."
I just can't get over the idea of porn on Disney. :rofl:
31. that makes sense. Disney is an easy target for something like this.
Disney... who's spent probably billions of dollars on building a wholesome, family friendly image to the point that most people automatically accept anything Disney does as 'safe' for the family. So to juxtapose Disney's image with pron is just too easy to do. It shocks all the puritan's in the world, grabs immediate attention, and generates instantaneous news. Its a win-win for attention seekers. Play with a couple of wires in the cable system and poof! Instant 'for the children' shouting will commence, spokespeople will trot out and crow about this and that, and then you've got a media circus.
At the end of the article, she says she's afraid to turn on the TV. Great! Maybe her kids will now spend less time vegetating in front of the boob-tube and more time playing outside... you know interacting with other kids... learning social interaction... learning to be engaged in their world... creative play... independent thought... and so many other things the TV deprives people of.
46. My thought also. And maybe the kids will figure out that Love isn't just songs& instant attractions
leading to happily ever after but can include sex. I hate the Disney bs-they took one look and it was love!No, it was hormonally driven lust. "Love" takes a while to develop. And no, the only people to "fall in love with" are not just beauty pagent males/females but normal people too. And no, happily ever after doesn't mean always peace and bliss but hard work.
But when people can make such a display of distaste over a natural sexual act while allowing the every day violence that can also be found on the Disney Channel, I seriously question the choice of disgust. Why should people be more disgusted of the act of pro creation than violence against other human beings either in action or ill placed humor?
some poor guy is trying to figure out how to explain that he didnt' know the tape was being broadcast. Not the first time this has happened. A few years ago somebody at a station in (I think) Miami tossed a porn tape into a VCR after the station went off the air, only to find out he'd sent it out over the air.
While I can see it being an 'innocent' mistake of that nature (and 'innocent' mistakes aside, it takes a lot of guts to watch a porno VCR tape at work), you would think their system would be set up specifically to prevent such 'innocent' mistakes...
I would not know what to say if a porno came on while we were watching that. Ummm....Still at almost 3 and almost 2 I don't think the girls would have understood it anyways. By the way, Manny is a repair man and a great role model. Imagine, a hardworking likable friendly responsible hispanic man on t.v. Disney does some stuff wrong but I really like this show. It introduces lots of Spanish words without being annoying (Dora kills me, so repetitive).
