  • Episode Description
  • Cheer Pressure: Adam is enlisted by the school's Jungle Squad to cheer with them at the extreme cheer-leading finals at the Stapled Center after Dickie, one of the cheerleaders, gets an injury while performing "The Tower." The squad then kicks Jake off the team because he's not pretty enough. At the finals Adam is introduced to a girl named Jackie, who just transfered to Chester Arthur. Only Adam believes that Jackie is actually Jake and when he insults Jackie, he unintentionally has to compete against her. Who will win the challenge? Basic Jake: When Jake pours chum from a bucket onto Principal Pixiefrog, he sends Adam and Jake to Saturday detention with three dingos. They climb a tree in the detention room and Jake takes Adam to the A.V. room, where his secret low-tier public access cable show Basic Jake is filmed. Jake and Adam try to entertain the audience although Jake starts to act really insane.moreless

  • Jake was already moderately insane, in the good way. This episode just increases his insanity, if only temporarily.
