User Reviews

A quality family show
14 July 2001 | by PigeonCameraSee all my reviews

"Jake and the Kid" is a wonderful family show about the adventures of Ben Osborne, a young boy growing up in the small prairie town of Crocus, Saskatchewan during the middle of the 20th century. His best friend is Jake Trumper, the man who was hired to run Ben's mother's farm after the death of Ben's father. Jake's an all-around good guy, who loves a tall tale and has seen and done a lot of different things. The other characters that make up the town of Crocus are equally entertaining and bring this small prairie town to life. "Jake and the Kid" is a humorous, charming and heartwarming show.
