September generally gets a bad, what with it being the month most kids head back to school. Many of the folks at ToonBarn Studios have been out of school for a few years, but it still brings back a painful feeling on occasion, as soon as we see those first few leaves change. Thankfully, there’s so many good reasons to love September, that it can over power any homework assignment. Disney’s Jake and the Never Land Pirates, for example, are offering not just one, but two great September events for our pirate-loving happiness. On September 20th, the Disney Junior toon will release its first music soundtrack album – just a single week before the first DVD becomes available. So maybe there’s still some “oh, no!” for September; but Disney is doing all it can to turn that into “Yo, Ho!”
