S2 Animation was awful

I was born in 1994 and I really enjoyed season 1 as a kid and as an adult. But changing the animation in season 2 completely ruined it for me. The animation is horrible, really makes me cringe. Disney fucked up and the second writer should be out of a job.

Greatest Cartoon Series Ever!

This show really moved me when I watched it. Especially the plot between Jake and Rose. They really teach the meaning of true love, and really show that anything is possible. I watched it again 3 days ago, and man, did it bring back some really good memories and nostalgia! But be warned, if you get attached to the characters, you will suffer heart-ache like I did!
