Disney’s Jake and the Never Land Pirates

Last month I was alerted to the fact that Disney’s Jake and the Never Land Pirates was a ‘cool’ show on Disney Jr. This in fact came from an expert on the subject matter, a 5 year old boy.  And he should know because Jake and the Never Land Pirates is cable’s #1 series for boys ages 2-5 since its launch.  I know my daughter would have loved this show when she was in pre-school, she was (and still is actually!) obsessed with pirates, I can’t even remember how many times we went on the Peter Pan ride in Disneyland when she was 3!

Jake and the Neverland Pirates introduces a crew of kid pirates – leader Jake and pals Izzy and Cubby – and follows their Never Land adventures as they work to outwit two infamous characters, the one and only Captain Hook and Mr. Smee, from Disney’s classic “Peter Pan.”  Along the way, they model teamwork, problem-solving and physical activity.  The series features original “Pirate Rock” music performed by Sharky and Bones of The Never Land Pirate Band.

I had the privilege of pre-viewing the Jake and the Never Land Pirates holiday episode which will be airing in December.  I can tell you that those 2 – 6 year old boys that can’t get enough of this show will love it!  The episode premieres FRIDAY, DECEMBER 2 (8:30/9:00 am ET/PT) on Disney Channel.

In It’s A Winter Never Land! Jake, Izzy and Cubby awake to find that Peter Pan has left the crew some presents and a tree to celebrate Winter Treasure Day.

In Hook On Ice Captain Hook invites Jake and the crew on a winter treasure hunt.

In January Jake and the Never Land Pirates will have their first-ever 45 minute series special and will begin season two of the series.

While some parents might discourage the use of the TV as a “babysitter”, I found when my daughter was younger that it allowed me to get a few things done if I had her occupied for a 30 or 60 minute stretch.  The thing is when you’re okay with your child watching some TV, the shows that you think are appropriate for them may not be on when you want them to be.  Disney heard the moms that wanted Disney Jr. programming available during a broader time frame, and so they are launching a brand new standalone 24-hour Disney Junior channel in early 2012.  It will feature the Disney Jr. shows that your kids love and you know are safe for them, like Jake and the Never Land Pirates.

  1. We saw this for the first time last week while we were staying with my in-laws (waiting for our power to return). The boys really enjoyed it a lot.

  2. My daughter loves this show. We discovered it earlier in the year. We probably don't have much more time with it though as she is about to turn 6. She will be excited to catch the holiday special though. Very fun!
