YO HO, LET’S GO MATEYS!
On September 27, Walt Disney Studios released Jake and the Never Land Pirates:Yo Ho, Mateys Away! DVD and the DancingHotdogs family got a chance to review it.
All summer long, I have been telling you about Disney Junior’s franchise hit that has started a pirate craze at our house. Jake and the Never Land Pirates is cable’s #1 series among Boys 2-5 and is on track to be Disney Channel’s #1 preschool series ever. It is the most co-viewed series among all Disney Junior and Nickelodeon series, with 47% of Moms watching with their preschooler. A music-filled interactive treasure hunt, the series 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 (voiced by Corey Burton) and Smee (voiced by Jeff Bennet), from Disney’s classic “Peter Pan.”
Check out the a clip:
We love Jake (voiced by Colin Ford), Izzie (voiced by Madison Pettis), Cubby (voiced by Jonathan Morgan Heit) and Scully (voiced by David Arquette) as they use the skills to solve problems and thwart Captain Hook. And we love how every episode ends with Sharky and Bones doing a pirate song. The DVD has 7 episodes from the 20 episode series, a pirate eye patch, a bonus 7 track CD sampler and two fun bonus features Yo Ho, You Want To Be A Pirate?, where Jake teaches viewers how to talk like a pirate, and Pirate Party With Pirate-oke, a collection of music videos performed by The Never Land Pirate Band that allow viewers to enjoy with or without the sing-along/karaoke-like feature.
DVD set suggested retail price is $19.99 and if you have not bought the full Jake and the Never Land Pirates album you get to see the great show and have some tunes for your next long car ride. The DVD set is a total must at my house and I think you are absolutely going to love it at your house.
