Storyline

Sister and brother Judy and Peter move to a new house with Aunt Nora. In the attic, they find an unusual board-game, Jumanji. When they play, a rhyming quiz appears, and they're sucked into the bizarre world of Jumanji, where they have to solve the riddle in order to win the game. They meet Alan, who has been trapped there for years, and the three of them get into action-packed scrapes as they try to help Alan escape, but are always thwarted at the last minute.

Not exactly excellent, but like the movie, it's also pretty good

I just want to say that I liked the Robin Williams movie from 1995. It had a likable cast, solid acting, great action, terrific special effects, and some wonderful music from James Horner although the first few minutes were a tad bit slower and some of the scenes were apparently dark. So, when I saw this TV show adaptation of the movie as a kid, I was virtually impressed, although it may not be a classic since the third season had some weaker, yet very interesting episodes (although the final episode where Alan finally gets out of the jungle was great).

Seeing as how this was made by Klasky-Csupo, the company who made The Rugrats and The Wild Thornberrys, I think they did a great job with this show. The story lines for this show are very creative, especially in the first two seasons and they had a charm to them just like the movie. The pathos from the Jumanji game gave some an atmospheric tone to the environment and it's presented so lively. The characters designs, although weird, are at least tolerable. The voice acting is also pretty good too. Debi Derryberry did great as Judy and Ashley Johnson did great as Peter as did Bill Fagerbakke as Alan Parish. Tim Curry also did great as Trader Slick and the other voice actors voiced some of the new characters pretty well. Even the theme song was engaging.

Overall, not a classic, but a great show nonetheless and definitely worth-watching to fans of the movie!
