Me Adam, You Jake is the eighth episode of the first season.


Adam takes part in the school play.


Adam and Jake wait outside of Charles Darwin Middle School, and along comes by The Drama Club, making noise. Adam asks what it's about and the club leader, Hazel, explains that their trying out for a play called "Jungle Guy". The titular main character has an iconic roar, that needs to be perfectly emulated by his performer. Since all of the current auditioning animals, can only make their own native noises, Jake thinks that Adam can play the part, since he's a human, just like Jungle Guy. Adam refuses, showing no interest in that, and Jake deduces that it's because he's ashamed of his body. Adam strips down to his underwear, to prove that he's strong enough to play the part. Kerry then shows up with her school and looks at him in disturbance. She rightfully questions why he's doing that and Adam quickly thinks up the lie that he's trying out for the school play and pretending to be Jungle Guy, a man who only wears a lion cloth. Kerry buys it and promises that she'll be there to watch him in the play. As she and her school leave, Chad calls him a freak, and Adam panics, knowing that she'll be attending a play that he's not in, now knowing he just lied to her. Jake tells him there's only one way out of this one, and that's for him to put his money where his mouth is and audition for the role of Jungle Guy.

In the auditorium, Miss Chameleon holds the auditions, and students are asked to come up and say the quote "Me Jungle Guy, You Jane." Students, such as Ursula Ox, Harry Hyena, and Orange Crab do terrible jobs, but not as bad as Henry Armadillo, who doesn't even have the ability to remember his one single line. Miss Chameleon is on the edge of giving, up when Adam comes up to the mic and does an exceptional job. Adam lets loose and goes all-out Jungle Guy. Miss Chameleon loves his performance and Jake watches from the battens. While he does, he drinks coconut milk. Miss Chameleon asks only for Adam to do the Jungle Guy roar. As Adam inhales to let out his ferocious roar, Jake drops his coconut drink and it goes plummeting down toward him. Jake makes the quick decision, to swing in on a vine and swipe Adam out of the way, before it hits him. Miss Chameleon applauds Jake, saying that he was as good a Jungle Guy than Adam. She then finds herself indecisive of who to cast for the role. Adam and Jake find them selves in a competition.

In the hallway, Adam yells at Jake because he's apparently trying in their competition, despite the fact that they originally both wanted him to get the role. Jake says he's backed out of it, seeing how honored he can be if he becomes the first monkey to play a human character. Adam then proceeds to hatefully insult Jake for his being a monkey, throwing shade at his ugly face, snaggleteeth, and hairy butt. Jake gets ticked off at him and decided the shirts are off now. Or in his case, the fur. Jake shaves himself naked, so he can level the playing field and make him more like a human. From her on, the competition is on.

Adam and Jake come up to a herd of elephants and plan to startle them into a stampede, but Jake realizes how dangerous that is and tries to stop Adam before he can roar. Adam ignores this and lets out his roar anyway, which turns out to be very weak and wimpy. Jake laughs at his lameness and then shows off a real Jungle Guy roar, which gets the elephants to stampede. Adam and Jake care carried off by the raging pachyderms, who all read right for Principal Pixiefrog's Office. While they go, Adam and Jake continue quarreling and trying to outdo each other. Principal Pixiefrog screams in terror, as the herd of elephants come crashing in and destroying everything. In his office, Pixiefrog punishes them both for their behavior and with Miss Chameleon in the room, he tells them that neither of them will be in the play. Instead, they'll be finding seats for the showcomers.

Adam and Jake are reassigned to being seat finders and the new guy playing Jungle Guy is of all people, Henry, who keeps needing to ask the angered Miss Chameleon what his next line is. Kerry shows up and asks why Adam's not on stage. Jake saves his butt, by saying that Henry was a distant cousin of the real Jungle Guy, and only got the role over Adam because of nepotism. Kerry says she'd still watch the play anyway if Adam could find her a seat. For no reason, Jake starts competing with him over finding a better seat for her and the two of them pulls Kerry back and forth, arguing about what seat to put her in.
