The year after ''Film/{{Jumanji}}'' came out, an animated adaption was made for Creator/{{UPN}}- the first of many by Sony Pictures' Australian animation firm Adelaide Productions, which would later create ''WesternAnimation/ExtremeGhostbusters'', ''WesternAnimation/MenInBlack'', ''WesternAnimation/GodzillaTheSeries'', ''WesternAnimation/BigGuyAndRustyTheBoyRobot'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Dilbert}}'', ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'', and ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks''. It followed its own continuity, separate from that of the movie. Like the movie, it followed Peter and Judy finding the game board. However unlike the movie, they end up sucked into the game where they quickly find out the dangers of it. Luckily along the way they meet Alan, a previous player who also got sucked into the game and can't get out as he didn't read his clue that the board displays after rolling the dice (those little rhymes that tell of the dangers to come; instead of them coming out of the game, you're sucked in and must solve it to leave). So Peter and Judy willingly come into the game throughout the series to try and help Alan either find his missing clue or an alternate way out.

If the character designs look similar to ''WesternAnimation/{{Duckman}}'', there's a reason: Everett Peck worked on both shows.

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Jumanji is dangerously ''unpredictable''. It's hard to tell if it's trying to kill you or trying to teach you a lesson in life. It usually seems to be a bit of both - it wants to teach you a lesson, but if you fail to learn that lesson in time...

* DeathWorld: Jumanji. It's a miracle that the players survive even one episode. Even Alan who has survived in the place for decades, says he only survives moment after moment by the skin of his teeth.



* EverythingTryingToKillYou: Much moreso then the movie as the players are brought inside the game. The first episode clarifies this when Peter comes across a few toys in Alan's hideout which he explains, in a rather grim tone, were from "previous players".

* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Compared to Peter and Alan, Judy rarely played TheChewToy to effects of the game. Even when it was her that broke the rules, ''Peter'' was inexplicably punished or transformed for it, something he lampshaded the unfairness of.
