    Kids tuned to 'Handy Manny' get porn - Yahoo! News


    MIDDLETOWN, N.J. - Children here got more than they bargained for when they tuned in to "Handy Manny" on the Disney Channel this week — hard-core pornography.
    Cable giant Comcast is investigating how the porn was broadcast during the popular cartoon, which is about a bilingual handyman, Manny Garcia, and his talking tools.
    Customer Paul Dunleavy was stunned Tuesday morning to find his 5-year-old son watching the broadcast.
    "It was two people doing their thing; it was full-on and it was disgusting," the father of three told The New York Daily News.
    Comcast spokesman Fred DeAndrea confirmed that the programming error occurred around 9:30 a.m. Tuesday. He declined to provide the duration of the porn broadcast but described it as an "isolated issue in a local New Jersey facility."
    A Disney Channel spokeswoman said the company has asked Comcast for assurances that appropriate measures were taken to prevent such situations in the future.

    I wonder how that kid felt. I remember when I was in elementary school me and a friend of mine showed another friend porn for the first time and he said he was about to throw up.
