Scary and mean pirates. NOT for 3 y/o's!

I don't know how this ended up in the 3+ category. It's scary and not at all on the same level as Pooh, Elmo or Lost and Found. Scary pirates... ghosts...? Asking for nightmares.

Is It Any Good?

This show is fun and action-packed for younger viewers. Kids in middle elementary and up may be a bit bored with the preschool/kindergarten-aimed series, but it's still adorable and engaging for audiences finally ready for more than the half-hour show. Jake and his friends are easy to root for, as they work as a team to solve mysteries and save the day again and again. Even Captain Hook isn't at his absolute worst in this series, so it's easy to see why even the youngest of movie lovers would enjoy and understand this special feature, and the bonus episodes are great in case you aren't in the habit of DVRing the show. While this isn't going to please the double-digit-aged kids in your family, it's a short and sweet video of treasures for happy little pirates.
