Of course it's good for kids. It teaches morals about health, friendship, leadership, etc, and it's in a calm environment of fun and adventure, but toned down, so they don't get frightened. I have three little cousins that I love so much, and they all ADORE this show. They laugh at it, they love the characters, they like to interact with Jake and his crew, and they never feel uncomfortable during it. However, I can't say that I personally enjoy it. Fans of the original Disney classic (like myself) will be very disappointed by the way the writers treated our favorite characters from the film, especially Captain Hook. They turned a despicable, bloodthirsty, and short-tempered psychopath, who murders anyone who annoys him, into a childish, greedy, and whiny baby, who would rather spend his time bullying little kindergartners for their toys. To recap, unless you're seven years old or younger, you won't like this show. Especially if you were a fan of the original Disney film.
