JACOB TWO-TWO

JACOB TWO-TWO

A character created by novelist Mordecai Richler in a series of books. He later appeared in an animated series.

Jacob Two-Two who Richler created for his son, was the youngest in a family of five. He got his name because he always had to say things twice before anyone heard him.

In the first book which is the most famous, Jacob Two-Two, after being convicted of insulting a grownup, is sent to children’s prison on “Slimers’ Island” where he meets the dreaded “Hooded Fang” who supposedly hates children because when he was a wrestler a child said he wasn’t scary. All turns out well, when it is revealed that the Hooded Fang himself is childlike.

From this story came a series of books and the animation series which appeared on YTV.
