The Court Jesters is a Canadian-Kuboian traditionally animated children's television series produced by Nelvana and Scopescreen Media. The show spawned twenty six 13-minute episodes and two series over the course of 2006 and 2007. In Kuboia, the show aired on Nickelodeon Kuboia, whilst in Canada, the show aired on YTV.


Twin brothers Wakky and Tak and their selection of friends identify themselves as a group called The Court Jesters. They dress up like typical court jesters, and frequently get in trouble due to their dislike for rules, especially those put down by school teachers. Most of the twenty six episodes focus on Wakky and Tak either getting up to mischief in school or facing off against one of their "enemies".

Each episode features one musical number performed by the characters on the show, which are often in a fast-paced punk style.


The premise for The Court Jesters was created in 2002 by TBA. The show had a long development cycle, mostly due to Scopescreen Media focusing on their other series, Cindi and Friends, at the time.


In 2018, ranked the show #10 in their Top Ten Kuboian Cartoons list.
