Jakers! Mel Brooks is a sheep!

This is the best show for kids to come along in a long time. I love that the story takes place in Ireland - we get to hear the accents! The story lines are shared among the character and the parents of the kids are involved and loving. THe teachers are supportive and the kids are respectful to their elders. The sheep? Hilarious! Mel Brooks? I couldn't believe it. What a wonderful show, with such creative animation. My only complaint is that I wish it were on at a better time for us to watch it!

One of the best kids shows ever produced. Up there with Mr. Rogers and classic Sesame Streets. Plus, Jakers features the voices of Mel Brooks and Harry Shearer. Really fun for kids and all age grown-ups. The producers really "get it". There's even a reference to "The InLaws". Mel Brooks says to sheep trying to run away: "They can't catch you if you zig zag...zig zag" BRILLIANT

Teaches Relationships--Family and Friends

I really love this show and wish there were more episodes. It teaches children that the stories from grandparents are very valuable and can be funny too. It also teaches kids that they can have lots of fun without having to have a TV, CD player, or video game. Go Outside and make your own fun!!

Good show!

My younger sis loves this show! I like how it is set in Ireland and not the US. (cute accents) The stories are memorable and the lessons are important. Good for 5+.

I love it and so does my child!

The first time we watched this show I knew it was a keeper! Good, clean fun teaching lessons without appearing to do so. Excellent!
