Disney XD Kicks Off Pranksgiving with Fun-Filled Episodes Guest Starring NBA Players

pranksgiving-110413What happens when you mix NBA players, your favorite Disney XD stars and some pranks? You get the return of Pranksgiving on Disney XD all month long!

NBA players will join Disney XD in “giving pranks” throughout November as Disney XD returns the hit programming event “Pranksgiving,” beginning MONDAY, NOVEMBER 4. A specially drafted NBA pranking crew – Tyson Chandler (New York Knicks), Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors), Kenneth Faried (Denver Nuggets) and DeAndre Jordan (Los Angeles Clippers) – get in the pranking game with the comedic and unpredictable puppet Crash (of the sitcom “Crash & Bernstein”) and together, they pull fun and over-the-top tricks on Disney XD’s biggest stars.

Each Monday, a new fan-voted prank will be revealed on Disney XD along with new prank-themed episodes including Dwight Howard (Houston Rockets) guest starring in the new comedy series “Mighty Med.”

“Pranksgiving” will also feature the return of the hidden camera series “Just Kidding” and the launch of a comedic Japanese-style game show “Japanizi: Going, Going, Gong!” Both series will roll out with new episodes weeknights throughout the month beginning Monday, November 4 (7:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., ET/PT, respectively).

So it all kicks off tonight on a brand new episode of “Mighty Med” at 8:30pm. Dwight Howard guest stars as The Great Defender, a superhero with the ability to create a defensive shield and make powers rebound off of him. When Kaz and Oliver (played by popular Disney stars Bradley Steven Perry and Jake Short) learn that pranks do not exist in the world of their superhero friend Skylar (played by newcomer Paris Berelc), they set out to teach her how to prank. When The Great Defender joins in, he takes the pranks too far and wreaks havoc on the hospital.

The month will also featured prank themed episodes of “Kickin’ It” (airing Nov 11) and “Lab Rats” (airing Nov 25) and we have a sneak peek below!
