Ryder leads a team of rescue pups (Marshall, Rubble, Chase, Rocky, Zuma and Skye) who save their town from everyday emergencies, whether it's finding missing elephants, fixing windmills or another minor mishap involving clumsy Cap'n Turbot.
This is a spin-off of the old Goldie and Bear story we were told as kids. The only thing different is that other familiar characters surface such as the big bad wolf, red riding hood, and the three little pigs. It's really cute!
Princess Elena has saved her magical kingdom, Avalor, from an evil sorceress and must learn to rule as its crown princess. Elena's adventures will lead her to understand that her new role requires thoughtfulness, resilience and compassion.
Corey Burton was initially unsure about being able to play Captain Hook in a program for pre-schoolers. He then realized he simply had to emphasize the comedy aspects of Hook's characterization, while still managing to remain faithful to Hans Conried's interpretation. Burton credits a large part of his achievement to his chemistry with Jeff Bennett, who voices Mr. Smee and first came up with the idea of playing the two characters as if they were a vaudeville comedy duo.

My 4 yr old and 6 yr old daughters LOVE this show. I've recorded all the episodes and they watch them daily. They sing along to the songs and know the words to all the episodes. We're not big Disney channel viewers because my girls prefer Nickeoleon, but this one Disney exception.
I think Disney was attempting to come up with a suitable option to Nickelodeon's Spongebob Squarepants and I think they succeeded. Spongebob doesn't have any educational qualities but at least Jake and the Neverland Pirates allows kids to count and use deductive reasoning. In addition, I think that Disney is trying to "ride the tide" of the Pirates of the Caribbean success and the interest that children have in pirates.
Good job Disney.
