Those who have a preschooler running around in the home almost certainly is very aware of Disney Junior’s “Jake And The Never Land Pirates.” The animated show is cable’s #1 series for young boys ages 2-5, even though, I do believe most girls absolutely love viewing the show as well. Since its launch this past February, Disney Junior continues to grow and break all preceding records for Disney Channel’s preschool programming with the hit series currently being its most successful preschool show ever. “Jake And The Never Land Pirates” is among one of the most co-viewed preschool series, with an estimated 45% of moms watching with their child.
For the moms and dads who haven’t seen the show yet, “Jake And The Never Land Pirates” is a music-filled interactive treasure hunt about a young crew of kid pirates lead by a boy named Jake (voiced by Colin Ford) who is accompanied by his buddies Izzy, Cubby, and pet parrot pal Skully. They set sail through muddy swamps and enchanted jungles on their trusty ship, Bucky, looking for lost treasure and solving pirate problems. Their main two adversaries are the notorious characters Captain Hook and Smee, from Disney’s animated classic, Peter Pan, and Tick-Tock the Crocodile. Captain Hook is always snatching the Kids’ treasure and the crew has to use teamwork, problem-solving, and pixie dust to outwit him. Each task they conquer earns them gold doubloons. The series features original “pirate rock” music performed by Sharky and Bones of The Never Land Pirate Band.

My Thoughts About “Jake And The Never Land Pirates.”
Educational shows that continue to keep my four year old engaged are incredibly difficult to find. He unquestionably really loves watching “Jake And The Never Land Pirates.” The series educates children about important challenges including working together, friendship, problem solving, and mathematics in an entertaining way. I’m able to feel great allowing him to watch the episodes while I’m accomplishing hectic work around my home. I never need to be concerned if their will be anything improper that displays on the television that 4 year old eyes and ears shouldn’t be permitted to see. The music, animated graphics, and fun characters are welcomed in my home! To learn more about Disney Junior and “Jake And The Never Land Pirates,” visit www.DisneyJunior.com.
