20 'The Office' Jim Halpert Pranks So Good, They Deserve All The Praise

There are a few things that are undeniable in life: The sky is blue, the grass is green, Taylor Swift is the sweetest, and The Office 's Jim Halpert is a master of pranks. This is apparent from the pilot episode of the series all the way through the series finale — Jim never once failed to pull off an epic prank in the Dunder Mifflin offices. In fact, it almost seemed like the more mundane his job became, the better his pranks were. It's kind of amazing, as well as inspirational.

Jim's constant terrorism of Dwight should serve as prankspiration for years to come. So in honor of the holiday and in quasi-chronological order, here are 20 of the most memorable pranks Jim pulled on Dwight.

From 'Pilot'

A classic: Jim encased Dwight’s stapler in Jello. Years later, he tried to pull the same prank on Andy, and chaos erupts due to Andy’s anger management issues.

From "The Alliance"

Jim agreed to form an alliance with Dwight — and ultimately used Dwight’s loyalty to make him do ridiculous things.

From "Halloween"

Jim posted Dwight’s resume online in search of jobs in Alaska, then posed as Michael when being called as a reference (giving Dwight RAVE reviews, by the way).

From "The Fight"

Simple, but genius: Jim moved Dwight’s desk into the men’s bathroom.

From "Booze Cruise"

Jim put all of Dwight’s possessions in the vending machine, to be purchased for a cool 50 cents a pop!

From "Casino Night"

Jim convinced Dwight (with Pam’s help) that he could move things with his mind, specifically the coat rack.

From "Gay Witch Hunt"

Jim convinced Dwight and Michael that “Gaydar” was a thing that could be legitimately purchased, and then sent them a “Gaydar.”

From "Benihana Christmas"

A belated collaboration: Jim and Pam convinced Dwight that he was being recruited for the CIA, had him destroy his cell phone, and then sent him a ticket for his CIA “training.”

From "Phyllis' Wedding"

Jim conditioned Dwight into expecting an Altoid every time his computer pinged.

From "Business School"

After a vampire bat is let loose in Dunder-Mifflin, Jim pretended he’d been bitten and was slowly turning into a vampire.

From "Product Recall"

Jim basically pretended to be a Dwight caricature. Not so much a prank, but generally amusing and spot-on.

From "Goodbye Toby"

Jim usurped ALL of Dwight’s calls, personal and professional, when he linked Dwight’s cell and work phone to his own devices.

From "Murder"

Jim convinced Dwight that Dwight’s only worthy opponent is himself, therefore getting Dwight to fight…himself.

From "Moroccan Christmas"

Jim pretended to wrap Dwight’s desk — but actually created a DECOY wrapped desk so when Dwight tried sitting down his “seat” ends up crumbling.

Image: NBC

From "The Cover-Up"

Jim learned morse code in his free time with Pam, then used it to talk about Dwight in front of him, and THEN used it to convince him there was a bomb in his office.

From "Classy Christmas"

This one is lazy in practice, and backfires completely. Basically Jim throws a snowball in Dwight’s face, and Dwight retaliates HARDCORE, in a nonstop effort that leaves Jim with Yuletide PTSD.

From "Garden Party"

Jim wrote a “how to throw a party book” including strange customs, so Dwight would carry them out at his garden party.

From "Tallahassee"

Jim made his room look like a murder scene, much to the horror of Dwight and poor, innocent Erin.

From "Free Family Portrait Studio"

Jim found out where Dwight took his dry cleaning, made a replica of his regular suit with velcro, and then ripped off said suit in the parking lot.

From "Andy's Ancestry"

With Pam, Jim convinced Dwight that he had been an Asian man the whole time, going as far as creating a photoshopped family photo and bringing in their knowledgeable actor friend Steve.
