  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

No, this is not related to Jujubes candy, nor to the Tak from another Nicktoon.

Tak And The Power Of Juju is a series of Platformers that was later adapted into an All CGI Cartoon TV series made in 2007 by the Nickelodeon network. In the game, Tak is a boy who is the apprentice of a jungle-dwelling tribe's Shaman. When the tribe's patron Juju (god), The Moon Juju, is captured by the evil shaman Tlaloc, she is supposed to be rescued by a prophesied hero. But the tribe's greatest warrior, Lok, was also turned into a sheep by Tlaloc. So Tak gets sent in a series of quests to find the means to restore him to normal. It eventually turns out that it was Tak himself who was the hero all along. The game has had four sequels so far.

The cartoon drops most of the adventure elements from the game and instead focuses on the comedic ones. Everyone in the show is an idiot, though some are dumber than others. The gags come fast one after another, with common sense and even reality taking a backseat. In most episodes (each of which contains two stories) Tak himself is to blame for the problem going on, by causing them or making them worse. Tak is often helped by Jeera, the Tomboy daughter of the tribe's chief. The utterly bizarre Jujus are also usually involved. Lok is also in the series, still admired as a hero when he's really just a boastful coward (not that Tak is much better.) Some of the jokes cross the line of good taste occasionally.
