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.

  • An interesting concept and far better than most Disney Channel shows today

    9.5
    Back in the day when Disney Channel was good, this was an interesting fantasy/action/super hero/comedy show that really got several people engaged in the concept of magical creatures and beings living along side with people in modern times. Not always perfect such as characters (who need and do go through some development) and some plot points but overall pretty well done. The animation style changes drastically from season 1 to season 2 (I read it was because someone in charge at the time had passed away. That death of an important production person could have been enough to cancel the show. It has a good balance and mix of seriousness and silliness of bad guys and bad situations. Clearly not just for kids, teens and adults can enjoy this too. It does have dark moments like it has action and humor. Way better than those over rated teen sitcoms that have airing lately. Those stupid teen sitcoms should be canceled and this show renewed. Totally worth watching or at least checking out.moreless
  • This show is alright

    2.5
    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
