Hi-Jinks Returns With More Pranks For Kids Of All Ages Beginning Tuesday, July 11

New Episodes Features Celebrity Pranks by John Schneider, Ted McGinley, Alfonso Ribeiro, Corbin Bernsen and Bo Bice

New York, NY, July 5, 2006 -- Nick at Nite�s hit hidden-camera series, Hi-Jinks, returns for more laughs and pranks for kids of all ages on Tuesday, July 11 at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT. The series is being produced by Stone & Company Entertainment, with Leila Sbitani as host. Each week features a celebrity prank segment in which famous faces use their talents to dupe unsuspecting targets -- from ages 7 to 17 to 27 -- no one is safe. Actors Ted McGinley (Hope & Faith), John Schneider (Smallville), Alfonso Ribeiro (Fresh Prince of Bel Air), Corbin Bernsen (L.A. Law) and Bo Bice (American Idol) are among the celebrities who have conspired with parents to prank kids.

Each 30-minute episode features several pranks taking place everywhere from homes, malls and even schools across the country. Grammy Award-winner Patti Labelle, Academy Award-winner Susan Sarandon, boxing champ Evander Holyfield, NBA All-Star Chris Webber and The View's Meredith Vieira were among the celebrities who conspired with parents to prank kids in past episodes.

The series rolls out as follows (all times ET/PT):

Tuesday, July 11, 9:30 p.m.

Find out what breaks loose when John Schneider (Dukes of Hazzard, Smallville) tries a hazardous stunt, Dukes-style. Also featured are pranks involving an overzealous crossing guard, an ice cream machine that goes haywire, a Panda bear that steals candy and a messy experience at a salad bar.

Tuesday, July 18, 9:30 p.m.

Hi-Jinks delivers its most explosive prank yet with the help of Hope & Faith�s Ted McGinley and a Civil War cannon. Also, kids are shocked and surprised by spiders, a defective waterbed, money that literally grows on trees, and a crazy copy machine that serves up pizza!

Tuesday, July 25, 9:30 p.m.

Watch what happens when a trip to Sonic Burger turns into a feast of confusion and comedy. Other pranks in this episode include a game show with quirky prizes, a pedicure salon full of surprises, a �magical� brick wall, and a wacky courtroom case over who gets $100,000 for being the millionth person to park in a parking space.

Tuesday, August 1, 9:30 p.m.

Start your engines, because in this episode, a monster truck goes on a rampage and Fresh Prince�s Alfonso Ribeiro puts a motorcycle through incredible moves like a daredevil stunt driver. Also featured is a clown looking for revenge, a machine that grants unusual wishes and a baseball instructor with a strange and unique teaching style.

Tuesday, August 8, 9:30 p.m.

The legend of Big Foot comes to life, and it�s up to Corbin Bernsen (L.A. Law) and some other dads to capture the beast� if he�s really real. Also, strange things show up in a father�s x-ray, kids have to finish a timed exam where the clock is rigged to go very fast, a crazy clown returns, and a house for sale appears to be haunted.

Tuesday, August 15, 9:30 p.m.

American Idol�s Bo Bice brings his band along to prank kids into thinking their dads are rising rock stars. Other pranks include kids having to take calls on their own radio talk shows, the challenge of outsmarting a brainy chimp, an uncontrollable water hose, and the effects of sudden celebrity on an unsuspecting teen.
