On Tuesday, the show "MythBusters" made national news by accidentally firing a cannonball into a Dublin, Calif., neighborhood. Fortunately, no one was injured, although multiple houses were damaged by the flying metal.

The mishap was not the first involving the show. Over its long history, MythBusters has had all kinds of accidents--and a few injuries, although always to its hosts.

In 2009, the MythBusters went to tiny Esparto, Calif., to try to see if they could literally blow the socks off a mannequin. Instead, the explosion they created blew out windows around town, and even knocked one woman off her couch. Click here for a news video of the event.
