Am I the only one who noticed the severely large number of similarities between “The Life and Times of Juniper Lee” and “Jake Long: American Dragon”?
Let’s get started, shall we?
Both main characters have been thrust into a new world they never saw before, full to the brim with monsters and magic.
Not only that, but it’s worth noting that both were of Asian (either Chinese or Japanese) descent but that they also share the SAME INITIALS, Juniper Lee and Jake Long.
Both have overbearing Grandparents who have passed down powers to them that they have to learn how to use responsibly.
Both have annoying younger siblings who, at some point in the show, become better at the main character’s job than they could’ve ever dreamed.
And last but not least, both had grey magical talking dogs, (if memory serves) BOTH voiced by John DiMaggio
Not that you’re wrong about there being similarities….
- Both Chinese. No Japanese at all. Jake is also half-white.
- Lao Shi did not pass down his powers to Jake, Lao Shi is still a dragon and often fights alongside Jake. He’s just retired as the Chinese Dragon and become a dragon master instead. Also Juniper had no issues learning to control her powers.
- Ray Ray NEVER becomes better at Juniper’s job than her. He becomes helpful, yeah, but not better. And Haley’s entire episode of “being better” ends with a heartfelt speech about how difficult it is to be the American Dragon and how she could never imagine doing it.
- John DiMaggio only voiced Fu Dog. Not Monroe.
i feel like the tag literally describes just like. how invested i feel in the well-being of the characters even in a fandom meta or anything fanart? like just. please let these characters have a nice life after the show. or something idk
GET ‘EM BUBBLES!
//my favorite thing from The Life and Times of Juniper Lee ever.
A lot of people say Juniper is a rip off of Jake.
But in actual reality she was inspired by Buffy from Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Lisa Simpson from The Simpsons.
Do your homework, people. You’re getting embarrassing.
literally forgot i drew this a few weeks ago.
small sketch re-draw!

Juniper Lee wikipediaaaaaaaa where have you been all my life?
Tried to emulate a Samurai Jack-esque style here for inking practice purposes…. Didn’t work very well, but at least it’s something different to explore. Had a lot of fun inking it too : )
oH MY GOD JUNIPER YOU ARE SO CUTE
oh look at these cute drawings
ok they’re not exactly cute but sometimes i can’t sleep properly at night and so i entertain myself by drawing stuff out of the shapes behind the window, from shadows and tree silhouettes and stuff.
Next up is Juniper Lee.
Man, I LOVED this show growing up! There was a period of 4 or 5 years that I had completely forgotten about the show followed by a 5-month period of driving myself crazy trying to figure out the show’s title xD I hate that I can’t find it anywhere to watch it online, though. :(
it looks great!!
