Jacob Two-Two is the central character in a series of children's books created by {{Mordecai Richler}}, and an animated TV series produced by {{Nelvana}} loosely based on the books.

Jacob Two-Two is the youngest of five children and gets his nickname because he often says things twice since no one hears him the first time. The first book, ''Jacob Two-Two Meets the Hooded Fang'' has been filmed twice (pun not intended), and there are references to it in the animated series. Mordecai Richler died in 2001, but in September 2009 a new Jacob Two-Two book written by Cary Fagan was released.


The animated series was put on hiatus in 2005, after running for 61 episodes. It has since been revived.

* AllJustADream - [[spoiler: The children's prison island]].

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold - The Hooded Fang
* NightmareFuel - The children's prison island makes Alcatraz seem cozy.

* AlterKocker - Jacob's grandfather

** Could also be considered as [[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything]], part-way, at least.
* CanadaEh - To make this series more Canadian than it already is, you'd have to dress up the entire cast in RCMP uniforms.
* CloudCuckooLander - Buford
* CoolOldLady - Mrs. Sweetiepie
* EmbarrassingFirstName - Principal Greedyguts' first name is Ignatz.
* EmbarrassingMiddleName - Buford's full name is Buford Orville Gaylord Pugh.
* FourFingeredHands

* GratuitousFrench - As you'd expect, Renée does this all the time.
* GroundhogDayLoop - "Jacob Two-Two's Time Trials"
* HonestJohnsDealership - Carl Fester King
* MadScientist - "Old Man Leduc" looks the part (complete with BattleButler), [[spoiler:but he's really a veterinarian]].
* MagicFeather - Gummer Gormley's hockey card
* MassiveNumberedSiblings - Jacob is the youngest of five.
* McNinja - The Librarians!
* MeaningfulName - Lots of the adult supporting characters: I.M. Greedyguts, Miss Sour Pickle, Mrs. Darling Sweetiepie, Auntie Goodforyou, Sergeant Law and Corporal Order, Mrs. Bountiful
* {{Meganekko}} - Renée
** Jacob's mom
* MundaneFantastic
* [[OurPresidentsAreDifferent Our Prime-Ministers Are Different]]
* PowerTrio:
** Ego = Jacob
** Superego = Renée
** Id = Buford
* Punny Name - I.M Greedyguts
* RobotGirl - [[spoiler: Ann in "Renee's Rival"]]
* SadistTeacher - Principal Greedyguts and Miss Sour Pickle, both of whom look and act like they're on loan from a RoaldDahl book.
* StrongerSibling - In a way. [[spoiler:Principal Greedyguts' identical twin Y. B. Greedyguts, who, despite his goody-two-shoes introduction, turns out to be even more evil.]]
* ThreeAmigos - Jacob, Buford, and Renée
* VillainTeamUp - In one episode.
* VocalEvolution - By the end of the fifth season, Buford's voice actor has aged so much that his voice is pitched up to make him sound younger.
