Show Summary

Jane is a medieval middleclass girl being raised as a Lady-in-Waiting, but she’s got much bigger plans for her future! Training to become a Knight is what she’s all about - good thing she’s got a fire-breathing dragon as a best friend and a prince who owes her a big-time favour! (Based on the books of the same name by Martin Baynton.)

    i LOVE ALL OF THE EPISODES, BUT COULD THE PRODUCERS GET TOGETHER AND COME UP WITH SOME NEW EPISODES! PLZ. THIS WOULD BE MY MOST FAVORITE CARTOON SINCE THE FLINTSONES back in the day!

    At 64 years old I enjoy watching Jane & The Dragon. Not only are the stories good, they always teach younger kids a lesson, which we need more of in this world. I know some politicians that should watch this program.

    I do enjoy the program very much and hope it continues because there are other seniors besides me that watch this program. Hope it stays on a long time.
  • A fun, enjoyable show, even for adults without kids (gasp!)

    After seeing what kind of trash non-educational kids shows are these days, it was a pleasant surprise when I stumbled on to Jane and the Dragon while visiting England, and even more excited to see that PBS had picked it up in the US. It is refreshing to see a show geared toward kids that does not treat kids like morons, and which teaches moral values like courage, loyalty and friendship for once. The characters are lovable and surprisingly well-written for a kid's show, the dialog is clever and the music is fantastic. I only wish they had made an episode showing the events alluded to in the title song (Dragon and Jane's first encounter).moreless
  • Jane shows it's okay to be a girl and do boys stuff. She and Dragon solve problems and cope with life in general.

    Target age for this show is 4-12 ... really designed to appeal to girls. Jane lives in in medieval times as a knight in training (not a lady-in-waiting). She's an amiable gangly red-haired young lady with a temperament to match her hair. Great characters, good character development.



    The animation is unique ... CGI with post processing to make it look like it's done in chalk. I'm guessing the post processing is to make it look similar to the book illustrations?



    This is another one we strip out the commercials for the kids to rewatch (tivo). I wish there were more episodes.moreless
  • Quality television for the little ones.

    I don't have kids myself, but my sympathies go out to people who do. What younger children see really can influence their development, and the younger ones really need the kind of quality entertainment provided my the makers of Jane and the Dragon. I've seen for myself what an addiction to "Grand Theft Auto" video games and worship of the motion picture "Scarface" did for my neighbor's kid...played a major role in turning him from a relatively well adjusted kid at 13 into the gang-banging jerk he became 5 short years later. He's on his way back from the edge of the abyss as of late...drug rehab and anger management classes or prison are the choices he's facing nowadays, and it's a toss-up weather he'll make it. Jane and the Dragon is a very well written and produced children's program that addresses character issues in a gentle way that's healthy for the kids and won't in any way encourage any kid's degeneration into the sociopathic subclasses the ranks of which are growing constantly and running rampant everywhere. We need more shows like this on Saturday mornings.moreless
