I noticed that there's a lot of discussion about Juniper Lee on her wiki page so I thought that having a separate forum topic just for that would be nice. Have at it y'all. Talk about anything from episodes she's in to TLATOJL vs ADJL to what the role of Te Xuan Ze is.
Besides being similar to Disney's American Dragon Jake Long (Mandarin Chinese for "Dragon"), can anyone tell that The Life and Times of Juniper Lee also resembles Danny Phantom, Supah ninjas, Atomic Betty, Atomic Betty: Galactic Guardians, Samurai (Japanese for "One Who Serves") Jack, and Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja (Japanese for "Stealth Person")? I can for obvious reasons.
Well, if any of these are similar to JL, then by this logic, aren't they similar to each other as well?
IMHO, all stories about heroes and defenders will have similarities in any case anyway.
I think that yes, other people will be able to tell that these things are similar but the similarities aren't really the same as say.... an eagle egg and a dove egg. All these cartoons are more like apples, oranges and grapes being compared to each other when instead, together on a platter they make for an awesome combo as tv shows. Just my two cents on cartoon similarities.
Lots of fans have made cool crossovers and mashups with different combos of these shows so I think that kind of completes the "different foods" analogy.
Did you have some interesting comparisons or similarities in mind?
What I like about all these shows though is how heroic or "personified" all of their protags are. Nice shows.
and there's wayyy tons more on almost any cartoon-related site :(
They are similar yes, but that shouldn't stop anyone from watching either show. And many times people who compare them actually haven't watched much of Juniper Lee to begin with so I don't know where they even get that they can compare them.
Here's one I want to bring out bc it has a nice list of differences by someone who has actually seen both shows:
Juniper "June" Kim Lee (dubbed by the 50 years old voice actress Lara Jill Miller) from The Life and Times of Juniper Lee is very similiar to Jake Long (dubbed by Dante Basco) from Disney's American Dragon Jake Long.
What about The Life and Times of Juniper Lee's future Seasons 4, 5, 6 and the feature movie called Juniper Lee's First Movie presented by Warner Bros. Pictures, Cartoon Network Movies and Legendary Pictures in association with Cartoon Network Original Productions and DC Comics Entertainment?
