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
I really like American Dragon but what do I know, I'm 34? My neighbor (an 11 year old boy) loves it! He's a huge Harry Potter fan and digs martial arts and thinks American Dragon is "really cool". This cartoon combines Karate Kid and Harry Potter and is very clever, almost too clever I think at times for kids but again, I had trouble following Yuggio and I'm 34. American Dragon is Asian influenced but not Annimae, thank god, it still has that Disney coated gloss. Some of the jokes are hilarious but may go over the kids heads but I love cartoons with adult humor. There is a lot going on in this cartoon with a WB teenage drama mixed with magical creatures and superhero - Jake saves the day endings. Kids have a short attention span and there is enough here to keep their minds excited for the half an hour. Great fun!
