Just Kidding is a Canadian live-action hidden camera reality series that first aired on February 3, 2013 on its original channel, Teletoon, and November 19, 2012 on Disney XD. It is not broadcast on Télétoon due to TVA's broadcasting rights of the series in French-Canadian territories. The series has also been broadcast in the UK (CBBC), France, Australia, Poland, Brazil, Spain, Norway and Sweden. Unlike the international versions, the Disney XD version is hosted by YouTube sensation Zach Fox.

The show is loosely based on Just for Laughs: Gags (which is itself based on the American show Candid Camera[1]), only this show's premise focuses on kids pulling jokes. The series plays with no written dialogue, apart from the main theme which gives the impression that all the kids share the hosting position. The show now airs on Disney XD in Australia.

  1. ^ Just for Laughs: Gags "This crazy Quebec-based troupe uses the city as its stage, and its inhabitants, or victims, as characters! People are caught in a twisted yet funny web of comedic deception. This updated Candid Camera is a tad more risque and a little kookier with its practical jokes. The little snippets last only a few minutes, and some look more painful than others."
