Disney XD “gives pranks” in November with the premiere of two hidden camera prank series, “Just Kidding” and “Code 9,” and a month-long programming event, “Pranksgiving,” that invites viewers to vote online at DisneyXD.com/Crash to determine which Disney XD stars will “get Crashed” by the wildly unpredictable puppet star of “Crash & Bernstein.” “Pranksgiving” begins MONDAY, NOVEMBER 5 and “Just Kidding” and “Code 9” premiere MONDAY, NOVEMBER 19 (7:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., ET/PT, respectively).
“Just Kidding,” hosted by You Tube practical prankster Zach Fox, will roll out with six new episodes, Monday through Saturday, November 19-24 (7:00 p.m. ET/PT), each featuring Fox’s signature good-humored fun including when he tricks unsuspecting bystanders into thinking his tongue is stuck to an ice cream cart, and that a sofa has swallowed some kids. “Just Kidding” is produced in association with Juste Pour Rire Les Gags Inc. and carries a TV-G parental guideline.
Wes Denning hosts the unscripted hidden camera comedy series “Code 9” (7:30 p.m., ET/PT) in which a sense of humor and the help of Hollywood’s top special effects artists are all kids and their families need to pull off the ultimate good-natured prank on their unsuspecting mom or dad. The new series, which is also seen on Disney Channel, guest stars Los Angeles Kings hockey player Kevin Westgarth in its premiere episode.
Jillian Michaels, WWE star Kofi Kingston and George Wendt guest star in a two-part new episode of the hit series “Kickin’ It” MONDAY, NOVEMBER 19 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT). In the episode, Rudy quits his dojo job when his uncle Blake (George Wendt) offers him a job at his amusement parks chain so Bobby Wasabi sells the dojo to Ty and the Black Dragons, and the Wasabi Warriors go their separate ways. Then, Rudy sets out to win the dojo back via a tournament with Ty and the Black Dragons. Milton enlists the help of his Aunt Jillian (Jillian Michaels) to get them in winning shape but Ty brings in a ringer, WWE star Kofi Kingston, to go up against Rudy.
For the online/on-air “Pranksgiving” event, each Monday in November will feature the star with the most votes — “Kickin’ It” stars Leo Howard, Olivia Holt and Alex Christian Jones; “Lab Rats” stars Spencer Boldman and Billy Unger; and “Pair of Kings” star Ryan Ochoa – in an encounter with practical joker Crash, the puppet star of Disney XD’s “Crash & Bernstein.” Two bonus antics will premiere Tuesday, November 20 and Wednesday, November 21, leading up to Crash’s ultimate show of shenanigans on Thursday, November 22 which includes “Lab Rats” stars Tyrel Jackson Williams and Kelli Berglund, and “Crash & Bernstein” star Cole Jensen. Crash’s capers will premiere during the 8:00 p.m., ET/PT telecasts.
