This show is my personal favourite original Disney Channel show and the only issue I can see people getting is the art change in season 2 which I personally embraced if not preferred to season 1

My childhood show!(indeed)

This show was my childhood.I have been laughing my butt off towards Jake's street-smart attitude in some moments of Season 1 and 2(Season 1 has the best moments).We also get to see Jake get more character development and the finale was good and grippin'(Nods head like Jake listening to MC Hammers)

Two stars?

Really is that all it gets? I like it a lot, Jake is a good role model despite his martial arts acts.

The last of its kind...

Seriously, CommonSense? Two stars? That's all you can give it? Why does it seem like you hate every good show? Oh, just because it has a little violence, it's automatically bad? American Dragon: Jake Long is the the last of its kind (as far as Disney Channel cartoons go), sadly. Jake is a great role-model (despite some of his disrespectful traits). There are also a few lessons in each episodes, which is a plus for parents. There is plenty of action and martial arts, but not too much to the point where it becomes unwatchable for kids. The humor is great, with the occasional inside joke and the episodes have actual plots, unlike most cartoons these days. Ignore CSM, their review does not make any sense. This is an awesome show!

OKay Kids

It is a little racist but it is still good, dont watch if you're one of those over protected parents

Mixed feelings

I have mixed feelings on this show. I do like the plotlines, but Jake's arrogant, lazy attitude annoys me. But he usually ends up doing the right things. Violence: Some fighting, nothing bloody or serious. Sex: Some flirting and kissing. Language: Words like, "stupid" are sometimes used.

I use to always watch it!

I always watched it, but my stepmom doesn't like it because we're Christian and she thinks its a little creepy with the red dragon, I watch it when my brothers aren't in the room, cuz of the violence. It kinda has dark undertones, but its not a bad show. I love the voices, and its pretty funny. Jake's pretty ignorent half of the time thou, has issues with being told what to do.. Trixie is my fave, its not racisum that she talks that way, its New York! Jake speaks that way too! Spud doesn't thou. Rose's secret is really exciting to know about, her birthmark is cool. Although I'm suprised they both haven't figured out who eachother were (their voices are give aways) Either way, dispite the violence and romance, its really cool.

Somewhere in the middle

This is a OK tv show.
Nothing special.
It bores you after you watch it for awhile.

Very entertaining, but...

This show is surprisingly entertaining. But it gets old after awhile, I couldn't see this exactly being someone's favorite show. There are a few bathroom jokes in most episodes. There is also alot of fighting. The main character isn't very respectful. Surprisingly, being set in New York, there is no drugs or alchohol or commercialism. But kids of different nations judge each other by their races. Overall this is an above average show.

i am 11 years old and this show stinks. it is boring and the kid jake talks and acts like a black kid from the hood. it is a take off from every tv show. there are bad jokes and they are not funny. the only way i laugh is watching how bad it is. my friends all agree with me
Teen, 14 years old Written byicefire22 April 9, 2008


This is my favorite and my friends watch it whenever it's on. My mom even likes it. And she's 35! It's entertaining and even funny to watch Jake juggle his social life and his duties as the American Dragon.This show is a must watch. Some people don't approve of the violence or "bathroom jokes" but you gotta remember-it's Disney channel. Every show is rated g on disney channel. They wouldn't put anything that was really bad on Disney channel. Parents have to remember-it's just a tv show.

It's a decsent show

I don't see anything wrong with the language, including the accsents on any of the characters. The show isn't racist in any way and even though Jake isin't really respectful too his grand father it's not like a kids going to say 'Oh I'm going to act like Jake!' I like the show and I'm thirteen.

My my my...

I am 13 years old but my godsister makes me watch this show alot. I gotta say. This show is RACIST! My worst fear (Being asian american myself) is that a child who watches the show may say to me somethign like "Look a chinese person! Do you think he can tur nint oa dragon?" This also misinforms the masses about chinese culture. Jeff Goode should be sued so disney can fall along with the many other incredibly (But subtly) racist shows it shows on TV.

I think "American Dragon" is a fun, great show for everyone. Some good episodes are The Academy, The Ski Trip, and Breakout ! Good job Disney Channel !!
