Editorial Reviews

JACKIE CHAN'S ADVENTURES is the exciting new animated series from world-famous action hero Jackie Chan. You've never seen Jackie like this! Archeologist Jackie Chan's eleven-year-old niece Jade proves action runs in the family when she arrives from Hong Kong to live with Jackie and his wise, old uncle in San Francisco. Meanwhile, Jackie has found an ancient Chinese talisman, and now he's got government agents and gangsters chasing after him. Soon, Jackie and Jade learn the secret powers of the Rooster talisman and must use magic and martial arts to stop the villainous Valmont and his thugs from stealing the powerful prize for their own purposes. When Jackie and Jade travel to Mexico to find the next talisman, Jackie ends up in the ring with world class wrestler El Toro Fuerte. He quickly discovers the Ox talisman but Valmont's goons are on his tail. Jackie and Jade team up with the mighty wrestler to battle the bad guys in a championship match of good vs. evil.

3.0 out of 5 stars One more thing! May 3, 2004
Having taped Jackie Chan Adventures on both Kids WB! and Cartoon Network, and having recently purchased all three JCA DVDs used (never pay retail!) I can WITHOUT A DOUBT say that these episodes are intact AND that they are edited.
Wha?! You ask.
Depends on the episode. Some are completely intact. Some are missing from a few seconds to a few minutes. This has more to do with each DVD's combining three episodes into a "movie". While some complain that the intros are missings, this is not completely accurate as some are and some are not. Some actually have trimmed scenes... Where these DVDs really deviate is by playing one opening credit, all three episodes in "movie format", then all three "Ask Jackie" spots and finally a combined ending credits. Strangely, though they use the opening theme music during the end credits as adopted in later seasons NOT the "Chan is the Man" song originally used.
Why Columbia/Tri-Star (Sony distributes the show, but not the DVDs) chose to go with the "movie format" instead of just a straight-forward Episode 1, Episode 2, etc. and then stopped making the DVDs with Episode 9 is beyond me. I would like to see a Season One, Season Two, Season Three, and Season Four box set (especially since JCA has been picked up for a fifth season) with each episode being treated as an individual, hence my only giving these DVDs three stars each.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ugh. What is with this format? August 27, 2004
Man, I love this show. I haven't seen it in such a long time, but it's still up there in my five favorite cartoons of all time. Which is why I'm very upset with the manner in which these episodes were released on DVD. I mean, really. What IS this? Is it so much to ask for this show to be released by season as most shows are, with complete theme song and credits for each episode and no editing? Jeez. I realize it's neither the most brilliant nor the most popular television program ever conceived, but c'mon, DVD people, throw us JCA fans a bone here! Everyone else is doing it right. Surely a regular DVD release is not so much to ask?

3.0 out of 5 stars You'll never know . . . May 16, 2003
By Lottie
Here's the thing I want you to know . . . I enjoy the cartoon. I think the series is pretty good. It's good a pretty good basis for an ongoing story. The characters and enjoyed - the heroes are likeable and the villains are believable. However, Columbia/Tri-Star never finished putting out the series on DVD. So, you'll never know how the series ends if you stick to picking it up on DVD. Sure you can catch reruns on Fox and Cartoon Network, or figures out good triumphs over evil. But, just wanted you to know . . .

1.0 out of 5 stars Love the show, hate the DVD April 26, 2004
By Joshua
I have loved this series since the beginning, and that is the problem. I bought the DVD thinking that it would be a favorite show on an excellent format. However, much to my chagrin, Sony decided to omit the first minute and a half of every episode. Seems pretty stupid to me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Needs moar! October 29, 2008
I rated one star not for the show itself, but for this DVD and the few others that were released. These DVDs are missing a few minutes, often the teasers before the theme song comes on. I am also befuddled at the lack of a complete season or series set.

It would be so awesome if a series boxed set was released, with each and every minute of the show accounted for, and the Ask Jackie bits as well. I'm not sure why the quality of these DVDs are so poor, or why only a couple were ever released.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great DVD for a great cartoon! November 15, 2001
I bought thing DVD, and much like the show, it is a quality piece of work. Subtitles and audio options up the yin-yang (Listen to Jackie in Chinese. It's the funniest. thing. ever.)
As for the show, its a stupendous piece of animation. Not that typical 'bug-eyed, sweat-drop, overly unrealistic haircut' of japanime, this stuff is targeted for western audiences and does its job- It sure pleased me. Its great for kids, since the violence is mild but even Jackie Chan standards and is more acrobatic that vicious. Get it, watch it, love it. Thats my suggestion
