Its main objective, says creator Eric Glass, is "FUN!" and that's exactly what it delivers. From hot pepper testing to ugly baby hijinks, these preteen jokesters have it all, and on top of that, the editing and sound effects are top-notch. Get wacky, every Saturdays at 7:30 AM on MNN4! Next air dates: 4/23 and 4/30.
