Juniper Lee is a typical 11-year-old girl born into the secret responsibility of fighting the forces of mischief and chaos that hide everywhere. On any given day, she may have to skip out on her best friend's birthday party to discipline some unruly 6-foot leprechauns or smack down some troublemaking gnomes. Written by
A MUCH better show than "American Dragon: Jake Long"
Right now, there are two cartoon shows that are vaguely similar to each other in their mix of Asian heroes, magic, monsters, and talking dogs: Disney's "American Dragon: Jake Long" and Cartoon Network's "The Life and Times Of Juniper Lee". For my money, "Juniper Lee" is the way to go.
One reason that I like "Juniper Lee" is that the characters are generally less annoying than the cast of "Dragon". I can't sit through an episode of that show; I can watch Juniper Lee's adventures. Another plus is the show's slightly wacky tone; you're not supposed to take most of this stuff seriously. The voice acting is really good here, and once again Lara Jill Miller impresses me (she is the title role).
When you find yourself struggling to find an entertaining kid's show, turn on "The Life and Times of Juniper Lee".
