Jake and the Neverland Pirates Jake and the Neverland Pirates

Shiver me timbers! Disney's animated preschool hit Jake and the Never Land Pirates returns for a new season Friday, Jan. 3, with "Treasure of the Pirate Mummy's Tomb," an episode that finds Jake and his pals going in search of the Never Land Ankh. This magical staff has the power to move sand — perfect for helping Captain Flynn (Josh Duhamel) dig his ship out of the desert. But finding the Ankh won't be easy! The gang must first overcome an array of obstacles, including dark caves, booby traps, and ultimately a pirate mummy — voiced by 30 Rock vet Jack McBrayer — who turns out to be just as afraid of Jake and the gang as they are of him!

"Treasure of the Pirate Mummy's Tomb" premieres Friday on Disney Channel (8:30am/7:30c) and on Disney Junior (7:50pm/6:50c). Here's an exclusive preview:
