Crank Yankersis a puppet series (aimed at mature audiences, though rated TV14 usually) originally broadcast on Comedy Central from 2002- 2005 and later on MTV2 in 2007 in which the characters (voiced by professional comedians) make prank phone calls. The calls are then dramatized via puppets and sets.
Crank Yankers uses the slogan "The calls you are about to see are real. The names have not been changed. Screw the innocent." The calls dramatized on Crank Yankers are often of a somewhat adult nature. Some of the more risque calls have related to drugs or sex. Some, however, are of a more humorous or irritating nature, such as a woman who has her phone call to UPS hijacked by people who are intent on giving her anything but service.
