Mad Jack the Pirate is an animated television series. The show was created by Bill Kopp and was directed by Jeff DeGrandis (who previously worked together on Toonsylvania). On American television, the show was broadcast on Fox Kids.
The concept is of the adventures of the rather unsuccessful and cowardly Pirate Jack (voiced by Bill Kopp), who despite his failures never doubts his own excellence, and his dim-witted anthropomorphic rat sidekick Snuk (voiced by Billy West) as they sail the seas on their ship the Sea Chicken.
Currently, in Eastern Europe, the cartoon has a DVD release from Prooptiki under the title Piratul Jack cel Teribil and in Turkey VCD from Kanal D Home Video under the title Çılgın Korsan Jack. Also in Turkey, the cartoon was shown on Jetix Play and in Poland on Fox Kids.
On July 23, 2001, Mad Jack and other properties of Saban Entertainment were sold to The Walt Disney Company.
