Storyline

Tak is given a staff, the "Power of Juju", and instead of using it responsibly, he's often than not using it to make his workload from Jibolba easier or to solve a problem. He hangs out with his friends, avoids doing chores, takes any glory he can get, and learns his lessons the hard way. Despite it all, his intentions are usually pure. He's branded as a fool, a coward, and a cursed boy despite his heroic efforts when he's helping his fellow tribespeople, especially from Lok and Chief. Jeera, his best friend, does the same at times, but she's just as wild as Tak is.

Disappointing
12 October 2007 | by Ithorianjedimaster2See all my reviews

I never played the game, especially when I heard Nickelodeon interactive was funding it, but when I heard about the cartoon series of "Tak and the Power of Juju", I would be lying if I didn't say I was interested. Ever since the old Sonic the Hedgehog cartoons (save the dreadful English-dubbed Sonic X), there hasn't been many video game cartoons being made, so "Tak" was a bit of a highlight for me. I was let down though.

From what I know, in the game, Tak is trying to save his village from an evil shaman. The villain from the games has only a minor role in the actual cartoon series. The characters from the game act like they did with Lok's false heroism and Tak's wise-cracking nuttiness, but then Nick threw in some new characters for some reason that REALLY don't help the series much.

I was expecting a show that followed the games and their story lines, since the game and the show share the same title, but instead, I got a series made up of Tak's misadventures, like a Saturday morning cartoon. Also, though the title says "And the Power of Juju", the Jujus in the show appear rarely in the episodes, like 1 out of every 6 episodes.

If you liked the games, then you'd might get a kick out of this show, but for a person who never played the game, yet knew the basic storyline, I was really let down. You might say "But the Sonic the Hedgehog cartoons didn't follow any game story lines neither." But at least they had a long-branching storyline to them, with Sonic trying to beat Robotnik, but in "Tak"s case, Nick obviously thought making Tak a Ed-Edd-N-Eddy-esqe TV series would be more pleasing to audiences. It sure wasn't for me. Like the game's ratings, this show sucked. Nickelodeon, stick to "Avatar: The Last Airbender", because that is the only true great show you have.
