Editorial Reviews

Jakers! is a celebration of the joys good friendship can bring while the excitement of adventure and imagination inspires kids to learn from their own experiences. Through Jakers! children learn about life lessons and each episode conveys a moral that kids learn through daily experiences. Each episode of Jakers! is set in two distinct places and times: 1950’s Ireland and the present day.

We are big fans of Jakers. The kids really enjoy watching this. Jakers is all about storytelling. The Grandpa is telling tales of his youth to his grandsons. Since this is set in Ireland, the animals have a bit of a brogue and use Irish sayings. After the cartoon, real Grandparents tell stories of their youth. This encourages families to share the past.

Mel Brooks and company are great story tellers. Even the adults enjoy watching the antics of these critters and the lessons are told not preached to them.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST kids show! April 28, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Our whole family absolutely loves this show (ages 2 and up!)...cute, funny, and teaching valuable lessons. I am only sorry I did not know about it until now and missed out on the opportunity to get the whole collection with every episode. From what I can gather, they made 13 videos worth with 4 episodes on every DVD. We have collected four with another one I can see available, but the rest don't seem to ever be available in North American format or at reasonable prices :( I even went so far as to try to contact the production company (twice now) to try to find out more information or see if I can get copies of the rest, but they have not responded. Really wish PBS would bring this show back. If you happen to know where I can get any more videos in North American DVD format, please comment/contact me!

Piggly and his friends are adorable. The occasional trouble they get into and the ways they learn new things are hilarious.

The stories on the DVD are excellent. But the used DVD that I purchased from goHastings had physical damage which caused some parts of the video to skip. But for $8. Read more
