TORONTO, Jan. 23, 2013 /CNW/ - Have you ever sat down on a bench next to a farting guinea pig or had a head of lettuce attack you in the produce aisle? Just Kidding, the brand new comedy series for kids and families from the creative team behind the world-renowned television sensation Just For Laughs Gags, features a fresh twist on the tried-and-true original formula: this time kids are in control, pulling hilarious pranks on unsuspecting adults. Just Kidding premieres Sunday, February 3 at 6 p.m. ET/PT on TELETOON.
"In the world of TELETOON rules don't apply and anything can happen, making Just Kidding the perfect fit for our network. This series is guaranteed to have kids and parents laughing together at hidden-camera gags that are hysterical prank after prank and always in good fun," said Alan Gregg, Director, Original Content, TELETOON Canada Inc. "We are thrilled to have worked with the talented Québec-based team behind Just For Laughs Gags to bring a kids version of this wildly successful series to life."
Just Kidding showcases the talents of a group of young comedy prodigies with a knack for improvisation and the uncanny ability to keep a straight face - no matter what happens. Each half-hour episode features 10 to 15 carefully scripted gags that are kid-friendly and safe. The kids work together to ensure that one "victim" after another falls for their ploys, whether they're putting live birds in an ice cream cone dispenser or catapulting marshmallows at passers-by. The adults always take the fall and their candid reactions are all caught on camera.
Just Kidding is produced by Juste pour rire: Les Gags Inc. Pierre Girard, creator and former Executive Producer of Just For Laughs Gags, and Jacques Chevalier, Content Producer on Just for Laughs Gags, are the co-creators and Executive Producers of Just Kidding. New episodes of Just Kidding will air on TELETOON Sunday nights at 6 p.m. ET/PT.
