Code 9 (TV show clip)

A new Disney Channel hidden-camera TV show, Code 9, plays out every kid’s fantasy: playing a practical joke on a parent. The show pairs families with a special effects team to create, plan and help carry out a fun, harmless prank on an unsuspecting mom or dad. One family member even gets to go undercover with special prosthetic make-up to come face-to-face with the parent during the prank (the phrase “code 9” is used to signal this start of a prank). In the first episode, the Tribble siblings and their mom think their dad loves golf a little too much, so they set him up for a prank involving blowing up a golf cart. In the clip above, watch Joe Dalo, the show's special effects and stunt coordinator, demonstrate to the Tribble family how the explosive will work.

Code 9 premieres Thursday, July 26 at 8 p.m. Eastern Time on Disney Channel.
