Disney XD Announces 'Pranksgiving' Monthlong Programming Event
Disney XD on Monday announced a monthlong programming event for November dubbed "Pranksgiving."
The network will premiere two hidden-camera prank series -- Just Kidding and Code 9 -- during the month.
Just Kidding, hosted by YouTube practical joker Zach Fox, will roll out with six new episodes airing at 7 p.m. Nov. 19-24. The show features Fox pulling tricks on unsuspecting bystanders, such as leading them to believe that his tongue is stuck to an ice cream cart and that a sofa has swallowed some kids.
Wes Denning hosts the unscripted hidden-camera comedy series Code 9 (premiering 7:30 p.m. Nov. 19), in which kids pull pranks on their parents with the help of special effects artists. The new series, which also airs on Disney Channel, features an appearance by Los Angeles Kings hockey player Kevin Westgarth in its premiere episode.
Meanwhile, Jillian Michaels, WWE star Kofi Kingston and George Wendt guest star in a two-part new episode of Kickin' It (airing 8 p.m. Nov. 19).
In addition, Disney XD is letting viewers vote online to determine which Disney XD stars will "get Crashed" by the puppet star of Crash & Bernstein each week.
"Pranksgiving" kicks off Monday on Disney XD, which targets kids ages 6-14, particularly boys, with a mix of live-action and animated programming. It is available in more than 78 million U.S. households.
