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

Cute story & semi-original
24 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

I disagree with a previous comment about this show. Yes, it is an anime wannabe, but maybe that's why it's sort of good. Instead of a plot less cartoon with nothing changing from episode to episode, there is character development and real confrontations.

Now, this isn't the best show out there (I HATE the new animation style) but it's not complete crap. Jake Long is a little stupid & yes cocky, but that's good. How many main characters are completely caring & try to do their best? It's good to have a character who every now and then acts like a real kid. Children, I think, can relate to giving up something they want to do so, that they can be responsible. This show teaches without preaching.

And yes, Trixie is VERY stereotypical. But I think the point is to try to show diversity - instead of a weak, token "girl", (& token black character) who is only there to show how "nagging" girls can be, Trixie is strong and intelligent- in other ways. She may not know "big words" but she understands the power of friendship & loyalty. She's in-your-face & sometimes just what Jake needs.

What drew my attention was the difference in the characters and even the plot. You have to excuse the "fad" of trying to be something else (ie: Japanese) and see it for what it is.

I'll get off my soap box now, I just wanted to defend this average show against a horrible comment. (You thought Ren & Stimpy was good? Yuck! I bet you like the stupidity of Spongebob too!)
