Adventure Time

This show is awesome. I will admit, when I first saw this cartoon advertised on cartoon network I was asking "What is this garbage", "What is with cartoons nowadays?". Now, it's one of my favorite graphics animated toons!

So What got me into it?

The truth is I stumbled onto it by chance over the summer. I was spending time with my younger cousins and I had no choice but to watch what they wanted to watch. I asked them why they wanted to watch junk like Adventure Time or what not. Later on, I had discovered that my little cousins had much better judgement than I had imagined. You can learn a lot from kids, they're smarter than you think. So I sat down with them and watched the show, and it gave me a few aha's, but I wasn't really hooked. The flow of the cartoon was significantly different from the cartoons I knew and loved as a kid, but the characters make you feel brighter and you can tell the person who produces the cartoon isn't afraid to be too romantic, too lame, or to add whatever he feels is sublime. But it's not the romance, plot, or even comedy that makes adventure time one of my favorite shows. Its the incorporation and relation of fantasy into real life that is portrayed by the characters Finn and Jake. I feel like I could be them, or them me if I lived in their world and they lived mine. Unfortunately, candy people aren't real and dogs can't shape shift. Real life makes it difficult to be down to earth like Finn and Jake and so that's why I now love the adventure time animation.

What is Adventure Time?

Although I may be stating the obvious, Adventure Time is a Cartoon Network televised animation series. The man behind the show is named Pendleton Ward is a very well-rounded animator in deference to his preference of animation. Accordingly, he is supposedly influenced by series like The Simpsons and Japanese animations like My neighbor Totoro. Ward is also a fan of Dungeons and Dragons and is evident by his input of some fantasy aspects of the game into adventure time.

For example there are many mythological creatures in the show like goblins, wizards, barbarians, etc. There are also a wide variety of weapons and items showcased like Finn's golden sword, standard sword, forest sword, and endless treasures. Moving on, the story behind adventure time follows Finn, a 14 year old boy, and Jake his dog who can shape-shift at will with magic still unknown. They live in the far future after a post-apocalyptic war takes place and destroys almost all of man-kind, but not all of it as Finn is human.

In one episode, Finn puts on all-knowing seeing glasses and sees the planet earth, and then briefly North America launching nukes. In other episodes Jake and Finn find evidence from our time in the Land of Ooo like head phones, phones, VHS tapes lol, and other precedent parcels. In every episode Finn and Jake more or less have to save some princess or fight some kind of evil.

To give you a broader spectrum on the show, there are princesses made out of space cloud, bubblegum, rainbows, the undead, and bones. A 1000 year old vampire queen who still seems like an adolescent girl, dog princess, space princess, flame princess, ghost princess... you get the picture. It's a really wacky show and I recommend it for those who are open minded and like having a good time :D. Thanks for reading and have a good one.
