Storyline

From Jeff Goode, the creator of the hit Mtv Undressed, unveils the funny, fantastic action-packed adventures Disney's American Dragon: Jake Long. It's a coming of action/comedy about an Asian-American boy trying to find balance in his life as a skateboard New York City teen who is also entrusted with the mystical powers of the American Dragon, guardian of all magical creatures that secretly live amidst the human world. The series is produced by Walt Disney Television Animation. "It's a great comedy/action show that I think you and all the other Disney animation fans are really going to love. And it's a bit different than anything Disney has done before. They're 22-minute stories, which is a different storytelling format for us." - Jeff Goode Written by valeryaa90@yahoo.it

1st Season was great. The 2nd one is awesome!
7 July 2006 | by (Naples, Italy) – See all my reviews

> First Season < "American Dragon: Jake Long" (AD:JL) is not the greatest and original show Disney has ever made, but it's still a good show, funny, with cool characters. However, Jake's language (he speaks like a Rapper or something like that) is REALLY annoying (trust me). Anyway, there are other interesting characters in this DisneyShow, for example, Lao Shi, Jake's grandpa and Dragon Master. Lao is the first Chinese Dragon. Fu Dog is Lao Shi's shar-pei. He's a 600 years old dog. Trixie & Spud are Jake's best friends while Rose is Jake's crush.

The TvShow has a lot of villains though. The most recurring villains so far are The Huntsman and his Hunt-student (lol), Thorn (who is Rose's Dark-Side). However, the REAL enemy of the show is The Dark Dragon: we don't know much about him, for now...

> Second Season < The 2nd Season of "American Dragon" is even better than the 1st one! The Animation may be weird, but the story-line and the characters (and, eventually, the ratings) really improved. Jake speaks like a normal kid. Spud is smarter and Trixie is less annoying. I recently saw "Bring it On" and I think that the fight sequences were awesome. The 2nd Season has a Lot of CGI too. However, some fans still think that the new Season sucks: and that is NOT true. Even the villain are getting better! You really should watch the 2nd Season. Watch it, and you will love it!
