The Jackie Chan Adventures cartoon series is a smashing success as evidenced by this report from Animation Insider:

Cartoon Network's Saturday Video Entertainment System block (Saturdays, 7:00 p.m. - 2:00 a.m.) has seen its ratings shoot up thanks in part to the introduction of Jackie Chan Adventures (Saturday, 10 p.m.). The action series from Sony provided 28% delivery gains with tweens 9-14 (719,000) and 16% increases with kids 6-11 (1,013,000). Ratings improved 26% with tweens 9-14 (2.9) and 17% with kids 6-11 (4.1).

In a shocking announcement at a news conference in Thailand, Jackie Chan has said that he is retiring for good. After walking off the set of Around the World in 80 Days, Jackie called the news conference to announce his stunning plans:

"I'm moving to New Zealand to start a free-range poodle farm. After seeing the way poodles are primped and groomed throughout the world, I feel that it is my obligation to provide them with a place where they can roam free and wild the way nature intended. I've purchased 600 acres in a remote area and have set up the Jackie Chan Poodle Preserve where these wonderful creatures can hunt and roam free."


Jackie left for New Zealand immediately following the press conference saying, "I've had a good run but the poodles of the world need me now and I must go to them."
