"Netflix is a highly valued partner and a terrific platform for families to enjoy these heartfelt characters and entertaining stories."
(Barb's thoughts on this----This is awesome!!! We tend to watch more Disney XD shows, but every once in awhile, I do like to watch a bit of Jake and the Never Land Pirates! So, I could add it to instant view!)
Some more information to share with you from Netflix/Disney-ABC: Disney's Junior Annie Award-winning series, Jake and the Never Land Pirates, is a music-filled interactive treasure hunt that introduces a crew of kid pirates-- leader Jake and pals Izzy and Cubby--and follows their Never Land
adventures as they work to outwit two infamous characters, the one and only Captain Hook and Mr. Smee, from Disney's classic Peter Pan. Like all Disney Junior programming, Jake and the Never Land Pirates is guided by an established curriculum that nurtures multiple areas of child development: physical, emotional, social and cognitive; thinking and creative skills, as well as moral and ethical development.
