Prank Patrol (partially lost Canadian children's series; 2005-2010)
Prank Patrol was a Canadian children's series that was created by Apartment 11 Productions and Marvista Entertainment and aired on YTV from September 6, 2005 to February 26, 2010 for 100 episodes. The show revolves around host André "Andy" Simoneau and a team of ninjas helping kids pull pranks on an unsuspecting victim (usually a family member or friend). The show became a moderate success for YTV and two international versions of the show were also made in the United Kingdom and Australia and both became successful in their own right. The show has been compared to Punk'd, another prank show that was airing at the time.
Each episode sees Andy and the Ninjas help kids pull off pranks on an unsuspecting victim (which is usually a family member or friend), with the prank in question usually being a success. Also each episode includes an animated segment called "Recipe For A Prank" which shows a boy and girl pulling pranks on each other. The ninjas also pull pranks on the public and Andy in some episodes.

The show would occasionally air on Discovery Kids Canada alongside YTV and would sometimes air in Australia on ABC3 (as the Australian version would air on ABC3). After it's final episode aired in February 2010, YTV would briefly reran the show until 2013, when the show was completely scrubbed from the channel. In 2014, the now defunct BBC Kids (a Canadian version of the CBBC block from the United Kingdom) aired reruns of the first two seasons of Prank Patrol until 2017, when the channel closed down. The show never aired on television again after 2017 and episodes were very hard to come by. From November 2018 to March 2019, YouTube user DangerousVHS uploaded the first two seasons of the show to YouTube that came from the BBC Kids reruns. Because BBC Kids never reran the final two seasons of the show, very little of those seasons have resurfaced. Recordings of the original YTV airings of the show are very rare to come by. Only the intro from the third season and two clips from two season four episodes can be found online. The rest of the show remains lost to this day.
