What's the story?

Based on the books by Mordecai Richler, JACOB TWO-TWO chronicles the adventures of a kid whose siblings gave him the titular nickname because he usually needs to say everything twice in order to be heard. But while the always-honest Jacob (voiced by Billy Rosemberg) may be small and the object of much sibling teasing, he can overcome almost any obstacle by the end of each episode.

Is it any good?

In addition to boasting hip music and cool animation, Jacob Two-Two is a show that most kids should be able to relate to. What kid hasn't had to deal with wanting their own room, trying to fit in, and learning how to stand up for themselves in a big world? The sibling rivalries are sometimes overplayed, and the name-calling and occasional slight innuendoes between Jacob's parents might raise a few parental eyebrows. But overall the series successfully conveys useful life lessons in each episode, making it a fine choice for grade-schoolers.
