Jakers A Kids Show???
24 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I read of a 19 year old watching Jakers The Adventures Of Piggly Winks and, I and my husband are 38 and 40 and we watch it everyday. We think that it is the coolest show (although they should do more Mauri and Holly stuff) and we go out of our way to watch and or record it. It is the cutest show and whoever thinks it's for children should try and watch a few episodes of it and they would have a change of heart. It is a excellent show for children, teens and, adults of all ages. Good Irish theme.Characters are fun to watch and a delight to observe. Fun for the whole family.We highly recommend this program for someone who is seeking an unforgettable adventure. Jakers The Adventure Of Piggly Winks is a one of a kind show. -Curt & Lisa
