"Year of the Jake" is the fortieth episode of American Dragon: Jake Long.
Out of touch with his Chinese heritage and unwilling to participate in the festivities, Jake volunteers to watch his grandpa's shop while he's off doing his own holiday traditions. Jake's ignorance of Chinese culture soon shows its dangers when he inadvertently curses the magical shop with bad luck, causing a series of escalating calamities, including the releasing of three evil demons that wreak havoc on the city. While Trixie and Spud break the curse, Jake battles the demons and with the unwitting help of his father, defeats them.
- The title is a play on "Year of the Dragon", as Jake can transform into a dragon, which is one of the twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac.
