Jumanji

Show Summary

Based on the hit 1995 Robin Williams film, Jumanji told the story of a board game gone horribly, horribly wrong. The cartoon series twisted the film's premise around, but most of the characters remained the same. As in the film, young Peter and Judy Shepherd came to live with their Aunt Nora. Exploring the house, they found in the attic a dusty old board game called Jumanji. Kids will be kids, and soon enough Peter and Judy had the game out and ready for play, little knowing that the game had a life of its own. When they rolled the dice, a rhymed message appeared on the board, and Peter and Judy were sucked inside a strange jungle world. Lost and alone in this frightening new land, Peter and Judy ran across long-haired jungle man Alan Parrish (the Robin Williams character in the film), who had been sucked in by Jumanji many years earlier. The three joined forces, looking for a way out. Opposing them were English hunter Van Pelt, his lackey Oafal, mad inventor Professor J.S. Ibsen, trading post owner J.H. "Trader" Slick, and a crowd of mischief-making monkeys. Jumanji ran on UPN's Sunday morning schedule, traditionally a much slower day for cartoons than Saturday. The show did well enough, lasting two seasons before being replaced by the popular Big Bad Beetleborgs.

    I really don’t retain information about jumanji. I was just around the early preteen of my early days. I wish they brought back the cartoon, since I love the movie. I heard the show was great, but I can’t say that especially when I was little. My brothers watch it but I don’t hear any information on the show that it was breathtaking (well I don’t know about that) Anyway I can’t find any videos in development. I guess they didn’t get enough viewers. I only see one person that submitted an evaluation of the show. Well my only hope, I need you to tell me what was so extraordinary about Jumanji since you want to bring it back, I am not good at remembering good and breathtaking shows( here I go once more)^_~moreless
  • Alot of cartoons nowadays are rubbish why do they always replace classics. This was a great cartoon about a board game that came to live. I'll say it again bring it back pretty please.moreless

    90s cartoons have been a great success nowadays they aren't the same. Jumanji is one of the best 90s cartoons after a good movie. Now most movies based on cartoons are rubbish just look at Inspector gadget or Garfield Jumanji is a good movie and a good cartoon. its a real shame cartoons don't get the same care as movies do. I doubt it will be aired again. Why isn't it on dvd it had everyone from the movie along with new chacters a joker a scientist and many more chacters.moreless
