  • show Description
  • Jake Long is one of New York City's average 13-year-old boys, living with his extended Chinese-American family and skateboarding with his friends... until he learns his amazing destiny.He is a descendant of dragons and, when he transforms into one of these fire-breathing, shape-shifting magical beings, it's his duty to protect the magical creatures secretly living among the masses in New York. Among them are the herd of unicorns in Central Park, the leprechauns on Wall Street, the gargoyle nest atop the Empire State Building, the Triborough Troll Bridge, the mystical city between NOHO and SOHO and the underwater Hudson mermaids.Greater New York is the American Dragon's territory and if he can make it here, he can make it anywhere. ... Jake's life takes madcap twists and turns as he juggles all the social hurdles of teenage years (including his crush on Rose, the new girl in school) with his secret training to become the American Dragon, a regimen guided by his recently immigrated grandfather Lao Shi, and Grandpa's unique "associate," a gruff 600-year-old magical Shar-Pei named Fu Dog.American Dragon: Jake Long was created by Jeff Goode, creator of the hit MTV series Undressed. Disney has ordered an initial twenty-four episodes for the first season.Theme Song:He's cool, he's hot like a frozen sun He's young and fast, he's the chosen one People, we're not braggin' He's the American Dragon He's gonna stop his enemies with his dragon power Dragon teeth, dragon tail, Burnin' dragon fire A real live wire American Dragon!!

    • Jake is learning about his dragon powers in this episode.

    • Apparently Jake had problems maintaining his dragon form in the first few episodes.

    • Jake's sister Haley was named for Eminem's daughter Hailey.

    • It is shown that dragons are powerless against nets made from sphinx hair since it reverts them to human form and keeps them from changing back.

    • Jeff Bennett (Huntsman/Jake's Dad) and Mae Whitman (Rose/Huntsgirl) are reunited on this show. They also worked together on Cartoon Network's Johnny Bravo. (Jeff Bennett was Johnny Bravo and Mae Whitman was his neighbor, little Suzy.)

    • Magical Creatures: Gargoyles, Giants, Unicorns, Trolls, Centaurs, Mermaids, Leprechauns, and Pixies.

    • When Jake transforms there are some Chinese characters in the background and one of them is the Chinese character that means "dragon."

    Trivia (216)

    • Haley's middle name is Kay.

    • Jake won the battle against the Huntsman by farting him off the building into a billboard.

    • In the begining theme song we see Brad next to the door at the school but his hair is black instead of blond.

    • There is no way that Fu Dog would be able to fit in the toilet bowl and flush himself down the drain because he is too big.

    • When Grandpa turned into his dragon form, he was really long. But a bit later, he's about the same height as Jake.

    • When Huntsman and Huntsgirl disappear and Jake is half dragon and half kid (in his underwear), his legs turn red for a second.

    • Jake's Grandpa ties himself up when fighting Huntsgirl. But, when he gets hit with the net he is untied.

    • When Haley shows her music, you can see that there are a variation of notes (whole notes, half notes ect.). But none of the note heads are filled in, which is incorrect because half notes, three quarter notes and whole notes are the only notes that are not filled in.

    • Grandpa Lao Shi: "Lao shi" means teacher in Mandarin Chinese.

    • Fu is an example of a Familar. A spirit that takes the form of an animal and act as guides and servants to a sorcerer.

    • Keone Young Keone Young, the voice of Lao Shi, Jake's grandfather and trainer in martial arts and dragon powers, also appeared on Nickelodeon's Avatar: The Last Airbender as a Fire Bending master who coached the Avatar, Aang, for a while.

    • "Long" is the Chinese equivalent for "Dragon."

    • Grandpa: "Clockwise, then, counterclockwise" Jake's 'Old School Training' parallels Daniel's training in the 1984 movie The Karate Kid, where the student of an old karate master is taught the basics of the fighting style by painting fences and waxing cars. Even Grandpa's instructions to Jake about "Clockwise, then, counterclockwise." reflect Miyagi's famous saying "Wax on, wax off."

    • Fu Dog: "You kids and your sass!" John DiMaggio (Fu Dog) also plays Dr. Drakken on Kim Possible and in one episode, Dr. Drakken's lines to Kim were "You teenagers and your sass!"

    • The way that Jake produced bad breath looks the same way Danny Phantom uses his ghost sense, it also looks like an episode of Spongebob Squarepants where he and Patrick had bad breath

    • Danny Phantom: "Parental Bonding" This episode has many similarities to the second episode of Danny Phantom when Danny accidentally gives his date a pendant that transforms her (more ironically) into a dragon that crashes the dance. Like Jake, Danny also ends up dancing and having a good time with his quintessential romantic interest instead. Both were also the second episodes of their series.
