New York, Feb 9 (ANI): A woman in the US has revealed she was left shocked after a kid-friendly ‘Go, Diego, Go!’ video sold to her by a Long Island Toys “R” Us store turned out to be an X-rated movie.

Candice Connor, 31, from Queens, had sat down with her two young boys to watch the cartoon about the animal-loving Nickelodeon character, but instead saw a nude couple having sex.

Instead of getting ‘Nickelodeon All-Star Sports Day’ featuring Diego, she got a graphic video titled ‘Bubble Butt Bonanza No. 17′.

“I was disgusted. As a parent, my job is to make sure my children are safe,” the New York Daily News quoted her as saying.

Connor said she bought two cartoon DVDs for her sons, Logan, 3, and Nigel, 11, at the Toys “R” Us in the Green Acres Mall in Valley Stream. They watched the first one without incident.

Then the next day Connor told Nigel to play the ‘Diego’ DVD for his little brother.

“I saw a Caucasian lady and man and they were naked. I was surprised. I was very disgusted,” Nigel, a sixth-grader at the Susan B. Anthony School in Hollis, said.

She has not contacted the Toys “R” Us store, saying she was waiting to hire a lawyer, but said she called Nickelodeon, but got an unsatisfactory response.

“I want apologies all around. It’s not about the money,” Connor, who used to work at a different Toys “R” Us store, added. (ANI)
