Jake and the Neverland Pirates + Disney Junior Announcement
We were thrilled to learn that soon there will be a brand new 24-hour Disney Junior channel. A brand new standalone 24-hour Disney Junior channel will launch in early 2012. Perfect for watching later afternoon/early evening hours while us moms and dads are cooking dinner.
One of Shane's favorite shows on Disney Junior is Jake and the Never Land Pirates. It has become a huge hit with kids and is one of Disney Juniors most watched shows.
Since its launch this past February, Disney Junior continues to grow and break all previous records for Disney Channel's preschool programming! Anchored by hit series, Jake and the Never Land Pirates, cable's #1 series for Boys 2-5 since its launch and on track to be Disney Channel's #1 preschool series ever, Disney Junior continues to soar. The show currently is among one of the most co-viewed preschool series, with 45% of moms watching with their preschooler.
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.
This show is so much fun to watch. I will admit, I even like it. It is filled with songs and cool characters that go on some neat adventures.
A MUST WATCH-
Coming up next for Jake and the Never Land Pirates is a December holiday episode
Then in January the debut of the first-ever 45-minute series special and season two of the series.
