Show Summary

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.

  • This show is awesome and is very different than other disney show

    I dont know that people like american dragon or not but i love this show from the bottom of my heart because i am surprise to see the storyline of this show when i saw rose alter ego in season 1 i thought she is negative character and jake's love interest will best friend but i was wrong and when i saw season 2 and episode homecoming that time i thought this is best show i have no words . I know that jake sometime behave immature but i saw homecoming & hong kong longs i think he is real hero because he get succeed to save the life of his love interest and rose also sacrified her life for jake . I am also impress by the rose characher she is so great because when the worst things or event comes in her life she never cry and never comes tears on her face . even katara (avatar the last airbender), kim possible gets family and friends support and also so they can do anything but rose without family and friends support and also without magical powers she can do any whatever she wants . I think she is real heroine.moreless
  • This show is alright

    the characters are terrible. Jake is a living pop-culture reference constantly rapping. while talking and using annoying slang. Trixie is probably the WORST black stereotype in the world. Spud is an idiot. Rose is only alive for the sole purpose of being a love interest. Haley is annoying and every other character is annoying. The one thing I hate the most is the fact that they had to make Jake half white because they believe that you only a true American if you are a white kid. They also try to make him act like a white stereotype and urbanize his character for no reason at all other than to look cool.

    Season two also sucked

    This show is bad, but definitely not the worstmoreless
