Basic Jake is the fourth episode of season two.


Jake makes Adam spend Saturday in detention with him.


When Jake pours chum from a bucket onto Principal Pixiefrog, he sends Adam and Jake to Saturday detention with three dingos. They climb a tree in the detention room and Jake takes Adam to the A.V. room, where his secret low-tier public access cable show Basic Jake is filmed. Jake and Adam try to entertain the audience although Jake starts to act really insane.
