The month-long event begins November 5 online, while Just Kidding and Code 9 will debut November 19 at 7:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., ET/PT, respectively, on the channel.
Just Kidding is produced in association with Juste Pour Rire Les Gags and hosted by YouTube star Zach Fox. Code 9, produced by Evolution Media, bowed on Disney Channel US on July 26 and lets kids go undercover to prank their parents with the help of expert Hollywood special effects artists and host Wes Dening (In the Qube).
Online, each Monday in November during the 8 p.m. ET/PT timeslot, a different Disney XD star will get pranked by Crash from the new series Crash and Bernstein. Fans can vote online at DisneyXD.com/Crash and the star with the most votes will be featured.
