What a GREAT show!
6 November 2005 | by tatnerjSee all my reviews

Found this show by accident skimming the Time Warner cable guide. Almost skipped it because of the name, which made no sense to me, but I flipped past the channel and was instantly captivated by the terrific animation. My 2 1/2 year old daughter loves Jojo's Circus and The Koala Brothers, and the animation was similar (better in my opinion) and the Irish accents on Jakers are charming (especially since we're Irish). After seeing a couple of episodes now, I love the stories and so does my daughter. They are not overly dumded down like too many kids shows. The show gives good messages in one of the most intelligent and fun ways of any kid's show I've seen. As I said, I have a 2 1/2 year old so I've seen a LOT! I was also certain I recognized the voice of the one sheep, and sure enough, in looking it up on IMDb, I found it IS Mel Brooks playing the voice of a hilarious character! The characters in this little show are extremely well developed and presented. I highly recommend it to anyone! GREAT little series!
