There's good art.

There's bad art.

Then there's that Princess Bubblegum portrait.

At least it's better than a Jackson Polack.

I just wanted to say that Adventure Time is one of my new favorite shows. Farking hilarious. Lots of really good music, too.

Yes, but remember that stoners will make anything popular because of how funny they think it is. Adult Swim's Tim and Eric keep making stuff even though they avoid comedy like the plague.

I'm not saying Adventure Time is like that. It's actually good, from what I have heard.

It is absolutely not a children's cartoon. There is some very mature dialog and such in there... Maybe it might go over a child's head, but I have a hard time believing this show was made for kids. Teenagers maybe...

I'm 29 and I feel pretty much right there with most of the jokes. I'd let kids watch it, but I don't think they'd like it. It's not My freakin' Little Pony. There's some legit DARKNESS in Adventure time called the Mushroom War that left their planet with a hole the size of Africa in it.

Yeah seriously. Off the top of my head:

(SPOILERS ABOUND)

1. The entire world is post-apocalyptic. The creators have made explicit that they're never going to explain the apocalypse, but we've had glimpses (such as the Ice King's origin, see below) that reveal it to have been at least partially nuclear.

2. Some characters have terrifyingly bizarre backstories, e.g. Peppermint Butler who is apparently so powerful a dark magic that Death himself adores him, and that he threatens to consume Finn & Jake's souls while they sleep.

3. The Rainbowcorns, the people of Jake's girlfriend, have been repeatedly shown as eaters of human flesh, to the point they tried to murder Finn.

4. The Ice King, long played as a comic character in his delusional and endless quest for princesses to love, was revealed to be a terrifyingly sad man from the era right before the apocalypse. He was an archaeologist, and a magical crown he put on allowed him to survive the apocalypse and nuclear winter, even as his wife (his "Princess", as he called her) was killed. His comic actions, then, are the epitome of pathological. His craving for princesses less a joke, and more a horrifying reminder of the trauma of survivor guilt.

5. Beemo, the stars' living video game console, apparently has enslaved and captured magical creatures in his belly for their amusement. There is not even a hint that they deserved this; instead, it is heavily implied Beemo is somewhat evil for doing so.

6. In one episode, to entertain Finn on his birthday, Jake stages an elaborate Murder on a Train sequence that includes visceral skeletons of each murder victim. Apparently, each of the Candy Kingdom citizens has a skeleton beneath their candy flesh.

I could go on, but this isn't a kid's show. Or, at least, it isn't just a kid's show. It's clearly intended more along the lines of The Muppet Show, i.e. something kids can watch with siblings or parents and have everyone be engaged.

Close, but not quite.

The Ice King was an antiquarian of ancient artifacts. Then he came across the Ice King's crown (the source of the Ice King's powers). He didn't even really believe in magic or anything. Then his fiance jokingly put the crown on his head.
He had crazy visions that he shouted at and fought with. When he took off the crown, his fiance looked disgusted at him. He had no idea what he said during those visions. He never saw his fiance again...
Then he started to slowly turn into the Ice King. His goal was to escape the insanity so that his "princess" would love him again. That madness slowly morphed into a quest to get any princess to love/marry him...

Adventure Time had a displacer beast (in a dungeon to boot), voiced by Clancy Brown.

I rest my case.

Recent episodes have expanded this "Wizard's Eye", showing the endless sea of demons and other creatures that constantly pester him without anyone being able to touch each other.

Frankly, it'd drive most people insane.

But you're correct, though I'm also correct about her death, the apocalypse, etc.

I got a big kick out of that. Good episode.

But you're correct, though I'm also correct about her death, the apocalypse, etc.

If you say so, man. Betty is only ever mentioned in that one episode and all he says about her is he never saw her again after that incident. You can assume she died in the mushroom war if you want, but it's not explicitly said and we don't know how much time passed between that incident and the start of the war.

My kids and I were watching the one in which Finn gets beat up by a Deer. The ending had me coughing when my 6 year old asked why the Deer wanted Princess Bubblegums sugar so bad and why she just didnt give it to him...

Did you cringe during Slumber Party Panic when the zombie went up to PB and said "Gimme some sugar, baby."?

The deer episode was so odd in the sense that most of the episode was rather forgettable. That is with the exception of the beginning:

*crunch! crunch!*
"... whatever."

I've maintained since the first couple episodes that the creation of Adventure Time was engineered as such:

Hop up a 10 year old boy on a near-fatal dose of psychedelics, and then force him to rewrite Thundarr the Barbarian.

I've seen some episodes of Adventure Time. Is that kid wearing a pillow case on his head???

And that show is clearly not aimed at kids. I remember one episode where Finn creates the Fourth Dimensional Sword declaring that everyone is born to die. But my favorite scene was Finn running across a field (in a different episode), screaming the whole time. Comes to a river of acid, finds a talking bush, uproots said bush and runs across the river of acid, screaming, while trying to use the talking bush as a paddle, sweeping it back and forth fast enough to keep the acid away from him as he ran crossed the river. When he got to the other side, the bush, not all brown and with very few leaves left on it says it's last words (which weren't 'Fark you!') and dies.

Personally, I really like "what was taken." "Fionna and Cake" is also a great one (guest starring NPH as the prince!). "The New Frontier" has a really cool ending.

But IMO, the best episode is the two parter "Return to the Nightospher" and "Daddy's Little Monster."

And in case anyone is still thinking this is a kid's show, watch "Princess Monster Wife."

I don't get it. It's marketed for kids. It's on every day in the afternoons after school during "kid primetime." There are dozens of stuffed animals and toys out there that I'm certain aren't aimed at the stoner community.

If you say "ask your parents before logging on" when advertising a new game tie-in on your website, you might just be aiming for kids.

1. The entire world is post-apocalyptic. The creators have made explicit that they're never going to explain the apocalypse, but we've had glimpses (such as the Ice King's origin, see below) that reveal it to have been at least partially nuclear.




Not explicitly, but it does come out in both the setting and in casual references by the characters. The latter in the form of comments about the "Mushroom war" and such. The former takes a lot of different forms:

-In the episode where Finn works on his fear of the ocean, they take a submarine underwater, where you see an entire city ruined. This includes cars on roads with people still inside, indicating they died while driving.

-In the episode where they explore Marceline's memories, you see her as a little girl (possibly a thousand years ago), with most of the landscape ruined and aflame.

-In the episode where Finn takes down the Lich, the Lich's lair is in an ancient subway station. He summons skeleton minions who are wearing modern clothing.

-Finn is frequently called the only human. He eventually finds a "lost tribe" of humans in an underground fallout shelter, although only one of them has avoided mutating into something else. They had become feral in their long time underground.

Even if you don't care for the show's stories or sense of humor, I find it interesting just as a display of how much story-telling can be done through background details like that. There's a great deal of story that happens where most children wouldn't notice.

-Ruins and debris are common parts of the landscape, often including wrecked military vehicles like tanks.

Adventure Time is definitely one of my favorite shows, and I still love the Ricardio The Heart Guy episode solely because it has George Takei playing a suave talking heart. I also love the song from Evicted (Link). Other favorites include all the other episodes.
