Yo Ho Ho Jake and the Never Land Pirates

With a 5 year old we love all things pirates around here. So when I had the chance to review a new episode of Jake and the Never Land Pirates from Disney Jr. I knew that Genghis would love it as much as I did.

A music-filled interactive treasure hunt, Jake and the Never Land Pirates introduces a crew of kid pirates – leader Jake and pals Izzy and Cubby – and follows their Never Land adventures as they work to outwit two infamous characters, the one and only Captain Hook and Mr. Smee, from Disney’s classic “Peter Pan.” Along the way, they model teamwork, problem-solving and physical activity, earning gold doubloons as they conquer a variety of tasks. The series features original “pirate rock” music performed by Sharky and Bones of The Never Land Pirate Band.

Coming up next for Jake and the Never Land Pirates is a December holiday episode, to be followed in January by the debut of the first-ever 45-minute series special and season two of the series.

In the holiday episode of Jake and the Never Land Pirates, titled It’s A Winter Never Land! / Hook On Ice, Jake, Izzy and Cubby awake to find that Peter Pan has left the crew some presents and a tree to celebrate Winter Treasure Day, and Captain Hook invites Jake and the crew on a winter treasure hunt. The episode premieres Friday, December 2nd at 8:30-9:00 a.m. ET/PT on Disney Channel.

I had a chance to preview the upcoming holiday episode and I now know why Jake and The Never Land Pirates is a hit among boys ages 2 to 5. It is cute, entertaining and the songs are catchy. Genghis loved it.

And to fill a void that so many mom’s have said is out there, Disney is answering with an all new 24 hour a day Disney Junior network. It is set to launch in early 2012. Of course you can still find the Disney Junior programing on your local Disney channel on weekdays from 4:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. ET/PT and on weekends from 4:00–9:00 a.m. ET/PT.
