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.

Stereotypical garbage (in a nice way)
15 October 2005 | by mistress_centipedeSee all my reviews

I'm in love with anime and am semi-versed in Asian culture. This show...is...a disgrace. The writers for this series rely far too much on making Jake a good Asian-American boy, as a result, they make him talk slang so he doesn't come off as fobbish, which would not be nearly as insulting.

Being based completely on stereotypes, the black girl is just that: black. The white boy is a stoned ditz. The Chinese grandfather sports his garbs all around New York and NO ONE finds that in the least odd? Now seriously, the theme is (if not plagiarized) a good theme. A boy living a double life trying to defend the magical world (because Juniper Lee, Danny Phantom, Yu Yu Hakusho, and Inuyasha are NOTHING like that) but still, my point remains that it does have potential if it weren't so kid-friendly.

Probably the worst part is that Jake has no respect for his grandfather. If they wanted to stick to stereo types, they would have Jake be more obedient to his teacher rather than constantly goofing off like an immoral idiot.

On one last note, Disney must just...stop. This is just humiliating, I mean, just listen to that theme song!
