Yo Ho Ho: It's a "Jake and the Never Land Pirates" Life for CC

CC with Jake from Disney Junior's "Jake and the Never Land Pirates."
"Yo Ho Ho" was the pirate-friendly phrase of the day on Saturday, as CC and I visited Walt Disney Studios in Burbank for a sneak peek of "Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Peter Pan Returns."

CC's been in pirate mode for a while, so this was a particularly exciting adventure for my little buccaneer. She's also a big fan of Jake and his friends, Izzy and Cubby, and loves counting all of the gold doubloons in the Disney Junior series.

In this special primetime episode, which will air Feb. 13 at 7 p.m. ET/PT, Peter Pan (voiced by Adam Wylie) makes his first appearance with the pint-sized pirates. After losing his shadow, and then having Captain Hook capture it, Peter needs the Never Land crew's help to get it back. But, in the meantime, he teaches them some valuable lessons about thinking before you act. In addition to the adventure, kids will also be able to hear fun new songs.

Just before we settled into our seats in the studio's Main Theatre, CC landed a pirate bandanna and toy sword before she rocked out on a hula hoop, thanks to Radio Disney. Along with the other kiddos in the audience, she shouted, "Arrrggh," "Yo Ho Ho" and "Me Mateys!"

After the show was over, CC leaped up from her seat and started dancing. Jake definitely left my little pirate in mighty jolly spirits.

Season two of the series will kick off on Feb. 20. Stay tuned for guest voices, including Sharon Osbourne, Josh Duhamel and Jane Kaczmarek.
