Storyline

Sister and brother Judy Shepherd (Debi Derryberry) and Peter Shepherd (Ashley Johnson) move to a new house with Aunt Nora Shepherd (Melanie Chartoff). 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 Parrish (Bill Fagerbakke), who has been trapped there for many 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.

Jumanji
10 January 2009 | by mat9813004See all my reviews

For its time it was a pretty good children's cartoon. The artwork was edgy and the theme music was engaging, the creatures looked pretty scary/sinister and the rules based, cause and effect reality created by the Jumanji game gave the environment character and some of the malevolent characters a certain pathos. Professor Ibsen in the episode Master Builder was a direct reference to the Norwegian playwright Henrick Ibsen, who wrote a play called Master Builder and contains parallels to the character. Tim Curry is the voice to Slick.

Favorite episodes include Armageddon, where the rules of Jumanji begin to break down and Branford, a game version of the "real world" where Peter and Judy come from.
