As a home that does not have cable-television, my kids usually watch whatever is on Netflix or Hulu Plus. Unfortunately, some newer Disney shows, such as Jake and the Never Land Pirates, are not on there so we don’t get a chance to watch them until they’re released on DVD. I kind of prefer it this way though, because they get to watch the show whenever they want, choose which episode to watch and we get the Disney Movie Rewards points too! That last part is my favorite.
My kids had the pleasure of experiencing Jake and the Never Land Pirates with the newest DVD: Jake Saves Bucky. We knew nothing about the show prior to watching it and so we went into only thinking that Jake (the main pirate), was going to save some kid named “Bucky”. Well, that part was wrong since “Bucky” is his ship, but I was also surprised that it had a lot of music to go with it. Catchy music. The kind of music that kids will sing for hours.on.end.
When the show starts, it asks kids to participate by saying “Yo ho, let’s go!” My kid is so anti-anything like this, so I wasn’t quite convinced that he would want to keep watching it. Thankfully he did and it seems that it’s one of his go-to shows, at least for now. And so long as he’s watching it instead of Sonic or Annoying Orange, I’m happy with it.
By the way, this DVD comes with a blow-up sword. It’s cute and it could be added to a pirates outfit for Halloween. The show is good for young kids (my kid is 4.5 years old) and there is little violence. Captain Hook is a total softie in the show – so much so that he needs Mr. Smee to read him a bedtime story. He does get a little malicious when he cheats in the race, but nothing too bad.
