Adventure Time follows the adventures of a boy named Finn the Human (voiced by Jeremy Shada), and his best friend and adoptive brother Jake the Dog (John DiMaggio), who has magical powers to change shape and size at will. Pendleton Ward, the series’ creator, describes Finn as a “fiery little kid with strong morals”. Jake, on the other hand, is based on Tripper Harrison, Bill Murray’s character in Meatballs. This means that while Jake is somewhat care-free, he will “sit [Finn] down and give him some decent advice if he really needs it”. Finn and Jake live in the post-apocalyptic Land of Ooo, which was ravaged by a cataclysmic nuclear war a thousand years before the series’ events. Throughout the series, Finn and Jake interact with major characters, including: Princess Bubblegum (Hynden Walch), the sovereign of the Candy Kingdom and a sentient piece of gum; the Ice King (Tom Kenny), a menacing but largely misunderstood ice wizard; Marceline the Vampire Queen (Olivia Olson), a thousand-year-old vampire and rock music enthusiast; Lumpy Space Princess (Pendleton Ward), a melodramatic and immature princess made out of “lumps”; BMO (Niki Yang), a sentient video game console-shaped robot that lives with Finn and Jake; and Flame Princess (Jessica DiCicco), a flame elemental and ruler of the Fire Kingdom.

Adventure time is one of those cartoons that seem so random at first. However turns out its more than just random plot. The story is told in told in a unique way. Here is a link that would explain the timeline of the story. P.s. Video contains spoilers

So Its safe to say that adventure world is huge and vast. I Enjoyed the fact that Finn and Jack didn’t have to appear in every episode and it didn’t feel wrong. I loved the fact that every aspect of the world was explored throughout the seasons. Something else that caught my attention is the fact that not everything is what it seems. The supposedly good guys are sometimes bad and the supposedly bad are sometime good. I liked the fact that the side characters had alot of depth in their story and that we get to see more than just the main characters personal development. The main plot of the cartoon is amazing. the side stories are so heart warming.

We can’t mention adventure time and not talk about the music… Oh boy do they have the best songs ever made for cartoons. Adventure Time songs are so deep and how should I put it… (everyone can relate to them). My favorite songs are “I’m Just your Problem” and “Everything Stays”. Now about the animation, I loved the fact that they tried to change things several times. Like for example the clay episode was a very good addition to the show.

All in all Adventure time is a great cartoon that everyone should watch.

Overall Rate: 9/10
