The show was made for the then new ABC3 channel (now ABC ME) which specialised in children's programming. It is hosted by Scott Tweedie and produced by the ABC.
Scotty and his ninjas find children to help them pull off a prank against someone they know like a parent or friend. Scotty then takes the new prank patrol recruit to their "HQ". Here they establish a plan to prank their target. Scotty will then go meet real prank experts such as special effects experts and makeup or costume artists. Then the new recruit calls their target to lure them into the prank. during this time the filler content of the episode has already proceeded. Finally, the prank is conducted and when Scotty appears in disguise as part of the prank, the famous catchphrase "you've just been pranked by the prank patrol!" is shouted by everyone in on the prank.
