Adventure Time (initially titled as Adventure Time with Finn and Jake; still used in the related merchandise) is an American animated television series created by Pendleton Ward and produced by Frederator Studios for Cartoon Network. The series focuses on the adventures undertaken by two best friends, Finn the human boy and Jake the dog with magical powers, who dwell in the Land of Ooo. The series is based on a short produced for Frederator's Nickelodeon animation incubator series Random! Cartoons. After the short became a viral hit on the Internet, Cartoon Network picked it up for a full-length series that had a preview on March 11, 2010 and officially premiered on April 5, 2010.[1] The series has been a critical and commercial success, receiving generally positive reviews.[2] This series is rated TV-PG.

Production

Following the animated short, Frederator Studios pitched an Adventure Time series to Nickelodeon, but the network passed on it twice.[3] The studio then approached Cartoon Network, with creator Pendleton Ward delivering them an early storyboard for "The Enchiridion", showing that the premise could be expanded into a series while maintaining elements from the original short: funny catchphrases and dances, an awkward kiss moment with the princess and an "Abe Lincoln moment". Cartoon Network greenlit the first season in September 2008, and "The Enchiridion" would become the first produced episode.[3][4][5][6]

Series creator Pendleton Ward has stated that the artistic style is influenced by his time at CalArts and later working as a storyboard artist on The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack. He tries to include "beautiful" moments like those in Hayao Miyazaki's My Neighbor Totoro and some subversive humor, inspired by series like The Simpsons and Pee-wee's Playhouse.[7] Executive producer Fred Seibert compares the show's animation style to that of Felix the Cat and the Max Fleischer cartoons but says its world is also equally inspired by Dungeons and Dragons and video games.[8] Ward intends the show's world to have a certain physical logic instead of "cartoony slapstick" — even though magic exists in the story, the show's writers try to create an internal consistency in how the characters interact with the world.[7][8]

Many of the series' writers and storyboard artists have a background in indie comics. Pendleton Ward refers to them as "really smart, smartypants people" who are responsible for inserting weirder and more spiritual ideas into the series during its third season.[9]

Ward describes the character Finn as a fiery little kid with strong morals, while Jake is based on Bill Murray's character in the movie Meatballs, as a laid-back twenty-something who usually jokes around, but occasionally gives good advice.[7]

Setting

Although not implemented in the short and not directly mentioned within the series, the setting of "The Land of Ooo" is a post-apocalyptic continent.[10] According to creator Pendleton Ward, the show takes place "after the bombs have fallen and magic has come back into the world".[11] This is referenced at various points in the series — the intro includes a wasteland with an undetonated atomic bomb in it; in the episode "Business Time", Finn and Jake can be seen thawing blocks of ice with homemade flamethrowers, and find things like socks, debris and brain-dead businessmen. In the episode "Video Makers", Jake and Finn refer to "the Great Mushroom War", possibly alluding to the mushroom clouds of a nuclear war. In the episode "Ocean of Fear", Finn and Jake find a large city underwater, but don't mention it, or even take time to postulate as to why it's there. In the episode "Memory of a Memory" heroes Finn and Jake travel into the memory of Marceline the vampire, a thousand years ago when she was still a human child. As they approach her and talk to her, the apocalypse is clearly occurring in the background, as a city skyline burns, and buildings are visibly run down. During a presentation at the Toronto Comics and Arts Festival, Ward said that this will likely never be directly addressed in the series but we will likely see more Easter eggs.[citation needed]

Characters

Protagonists

Finn (on the left) and Jake (the yellow dog) doing their trademark fist bump. The teal-colored video game console on the far right is Beemo.
  • Finn the Human (voiced by Zack Shada in the pilot short, where his name was "Pen", and by Jeremy Shada[12] in the TV series) is a 13-year-old (previously 12 in the short and the series until "Mystery Train") human boy who loves nothing more than going on adventures and saving the day. He wears a self-proclaimed 'awesome hat' that covers his extremely long, beautiful, flowing blond hair (which he cuts off in "To Cut a Woman's Hair" and is seen to have grown back in "Mortal Folly"), and is prone to strange exclamations and outbursts. Considering himself a hero, Finn has a lust for adventure and swore long ago that he would help anyone in need (except the Ice King), but, being so full of energy, he has trouble in situations that require him to do things other than fight monsters. Due to an incident in which he swallowed a small computer, he sings in an auto-tuned voice, but seems to be capable of singing without auto-tune. Finn is believed by many of the inhabitants of the Land of Ooo to be the last or one of the last humans. In season three's "Beautopia", it alludes that Finn may not be the last human. He is the main protagonist of the show and likely takes his name in the short, Pen, from the show's creator, Pendleton "Pen" Ward. Finn was raised by Jake's parents, as explained in "Memories of Boom Boom Mountain" and shown in "Memory of a Memory."
  • Jake the Dog (voiced by John DiMaggio in both the pilot and series) is Finn's best friend, a 28-year-old dog with magic powers that allow him to stretch or shrink any part of his body to any shape and almost any size, ranging from becoming gigantic to cover ground quickly to becoming so small that he spends the entirety of an episode in Finn's shirt pocket. Acting as a confidante and mentor to his energetic pal (though he has a tendency to give somewhat sketchy advice), Jake has a laid-back attitude in most situations, but loves adventure and will eagerly fight when he needs to. He is the boyfriend of Lady Rainicorn, whom he met in the pilot. His powers help Finn considerably in combat and transportation, but are also sometimes used as nothing more than jovial forms of expression. He is also shown to be quite skilled at playing the viola.


Recurring characters

Princess Bubblegum riding Lady Rainicorn in the sky.
  • Princess Bonnibelle Bubblegum (voiced by Paige Moss in the pilot short, and Hynden Walch[12] in the TV series, and Isabella Acres when turned younger) - Princess Bubblegum is a bubble gum/human hybrid. She rules the Candy Kingdom, where all of the inhabitants are composed of types of dessert, being sentient or as Finn refers to as "having aspirations". Her proficiency in science and fluency in German are a testament to her high intelligence. Finn has a crush on her, but is reluctant to admit it, though in the "Mortal Recoil", he finally admits to liking Bubblegum "a lot", and in the episodes "Too Young" and "Wizard Battle", the two kiss. While she is typically kind and well-mannered, her temper can be a powerful force when provoked. Marceline reveals that Bubblegum's first name is "Bonnibelle" in the episode "Go with Me". In "Mortal Folly", she admits that she cares about Finn and gives him a sweater she knitted to keep him warm, which proves to save his life against The Lich. In the episode "What was Missing" it is implied she and Marceline the Vampire Queen may have had some sort of relationship in the past.[13][14] In the Season 2 finale "Mortal Recoil", after being possessed by The Lich, she is accidentally shattered and returned to life as a 13-year-old due to the doctors not having enough gum to work with, though it appears that her memories have remained intact. In the episode "Too Young" she becomes 18 again by absorbing the parts sacrificed by her candy subjects in order to reclaim her kingdom from the Earl of Lemongrab.
  • Lady Rainicorn (voiced by Dee Bradley Baker in the pilot short, and Niki Yang in the TV series) - Princess Bubblegum's half-rainbow, half-unicorn rainicorn. She can turn objects and people different colors. Her origins can be traced back to the episode "Her Parents", in which Jake explains how rainicorns and dogs have been battling over the Crystal Dimension for centuries. The episode also alludes to Rainicorns having a taste for human flesh, when her parents attempt to eat Finn, however Lady herself has never shown hostility toward Finn and always has a kind disposition with him. She can fly because her body intercepts light and can dance on it, which also explains why she has a rainbow pattern. She's Jake's girlfriend and she frequently plays the viola for him while he dances. Jake describes her as "the Rowdy Queen" because she can have fun and fight evil. In the pilot short, she makes pigeon-like sounds to communicate, but in the TV series, she speaks Korean. In both cases, despite being unable to speak the main language of the series, she is able to understand it.


The Ice King casting a magic spell.
  • The Ice King (voiced by John Kassir in the short, and Tom Kenny in the TV series) - The main antagonist of the series, the Ice King spends the majority of his time kidnapping princesses in hopes that one of them may want to become his wife, even using death threats if they refuse him. Despite being labelled a sociopath by the Cosmic Owl, he is shown to have generally benevolent relationships with the penguins (primarily one named Gunther), as well as snow and ice beasts who populate the Ice Kingdom. The Ice King is shown in a few episodes to be misunderstood, lonely, and secretly envious of Finn and Jake for being immeasurably happy in their cause, which the Ice King wishes to understand. His magic powers (primarily freezing things by hurling 'frozen lightning bolts', summoning snow monsters, and flying with his beard) stem solely from the "powers he stole" that were put into the magical crown which rests on his head. At one point he temporarily lost his heart, who became his own character: "Ricardio the Heart Guy" (voiced by George Takei). In a couple of episodes the Ice King has had a more positive role by helping Finn and Jake and at one point saving their lives from a hitman named Scorcher (although it was the Ice King who hired Scorcher in the first place). The Ice King has been said to be around 600 years old.[15]


Marceline holding her electric bass guitar.
  • Marceline the Vampire Queen (voiced by Olivia Olson[12]) - A 1,000-year-old vampire girl introduced as a villain who steals Finn and Jake's home (twice), but later reveals that she only wanted to scare them to death for fun. Marceline plays a bass guitar, which she made from her family's heirloom battle-axe, and makes songs with Finn every once in a while. She reveals that vampires actually drink "red", by sucking the colour out of red things, and that they only occasionally choose to use blood. Like a traditional vampire, Marceline is vulnerable to sunlight and is capable of turning into a giant anthropomorphic bat, as well as a grotesque creature made of hair. Although she is generally portrayed as an ally of Finn and Jake in the series, her father is evil incarnate, and she generally lets her own interests come before others. It is implied by the two wounds on her neck that she was once human. Also, she is a survivor of the "mushroom war" as stated by series creator Pendleton Ward, and in "Memory of a Memory" there's a brief flashback of a young Marceline wandering around the outskirts of a destroyed city. Marceline is the only person to ever address Princess Bubblegum by her first name, Bonnibelle. In the episode "What was Missing" it is implied they may have had some sort of relationship in the past.[13][14] Though Marceline has many things in common with Finn and teases him for fun (kissing him on the cheek just to embarrass him on more than one occasion), the two have made it clear in "Go with Me?" that they do not "like each other in that way". The younger version of Marceline in "Memory of a Memory" was voiced by Ava Acres (the sister of Isabella Acres, voice actress of 13-year-old Princess Bubblegum).[16]


  • Lumpy Space Princess (voiced by Pendleton Ward) - As her title suggests, Lumpy Space Princess, "LSP" for short, is the princess of Lumpy Space, an alternate dimension. Like all her people, LSP is an extraterrestrial creature known as a "Lumper" which looks like a floating purple cloud with arms and a face, who can convert other beings to their race by biting them, a.k.a. "werewolf rules". LSP is spoiled, constantly sarcastic and constantly seeks to impress her peers, going as far as receiving cosmetic surgery and punching herself into a ball for a clean-shaven Ice King. She is often shown living outdoors with salvaged furniture and appears to be homeless (although in one episode, Finn told Jake that LSP "lives like a hobo" instead of "being homeless"). After Finn and Jake attempt to find Lumpy Space Princess and bring her home, in "The Monster", Lumpy Space Princess realizes her parents' true love for her, leading her to go home. She speaks with a very thick valley girl accent in a manly voice.
  • BMO (Beemo) (voiced by Niki Yang) - Beemo is a sentient video game console that lives with Finn and Jake. Its appearance contains elements of Vectrex, Game Boy, and Atari 2600 game hardware. Beemo also has the ability to transform into other household objects, such as a camera in "Conquest of Cuteness". The letters on its side spell "BMO", but it has never been stated if this actually stands for anything. Beemo has magical powers that can bring people into the video game they're playing if it presses a button on itself. The button only works if Beemo presses it, and potentially releases game monsters into reality. It speaks with an East Asian accent.

Minor characters

  • Tree Trunks (voiced by Polly Lou Livingston) - Tree Trunks is an elderly miniature elephant friend of Finn and Jake who speaks with a gentle Texan accent. Tree Trunks lives in a little home in the forest, surrounded by apple trees which she uses to make very good apple pies for her friends. In the episode "Tree Trunks", Finn and Jake help Tree Trunks achieve her dream of taking a bite out of the Crystal Gem Apple, only to explode as a result. However, in a later episode, it turned out Tree Trunks ended up in a crystal dimension where she became Quartzion, the dimension's queen who attempted to have her crystal men abduct Finn to turn him into her crystallized king. Fortunately, Jake saves her from herself by removing the Crystal Gem Apple from her stomach before he and Finn take her home.
  • Peppermint Butler (voiced by Steve Little) - Peppermint Butler is a humanoid peppermint that lives in the Candy Kingdom and is Princess Bubblegum's butler. It is revealed that he is good friends with Death and can summon a portal to the land of the dead. He also has a very dark and strange side, at one time requesting Finn and Jake's flesh. Also, it was revealed on storyboard revisionist Adam Muto's Formspring that he has some cat in him, making him react poorly to the evil in Princess Bubblegum in the episode "Mortal Recoil". It is also implied that he has violent tendencies in "The Eyes", when he calls Finn and Jake to help him dispose of a body he "found" in his back yard. It could also indicate a superior strength, as the creature killed was several times larger than Peppermint Butler as well as being armed.
  • Starchy (voiced by Tom Kenny) - Starchy resembles a humanoid chocolate malt ball with a blue janitor's hat and a large, thick brown mustache. He is the Candy Kingdom's gravedigger and is attacked by candy zombies in "Slumber Party Panic". He exploded but he is later restored due to his later appearances in that episode and in following episodes such as "Ricardio the Heart Guy" and "What Have You Done?".
  • Cinnamon Bun (voiced by Dee Bradley Baker) - Cinnamon Bun lives in the Candy Kingdom. He usually tries to impress people by doing tricks (preferably "doing a flip") or volunteering for tasks but usually ends up failing. Princess Bubblegum refers to him as being "Half Baked". He became the new Royal Tart Toter after the old Royal Tart Toter went senile.
  • Choose Goose (voiced by Jeff Bennett) - Choose Goose is a vendor of magical devices. He mainly speaks in rhymes with a lisp. If someone cannot give him a trade for the items he has, he will have them do a challenge or task instead. His voice is reminiscent of Ed Wynn's.
  • The Lich (voiced by Ron Perlman) - The Lich is an ancient sorcerer who had been defeated and imprisoned by Billy the Hero after a failed attempt to destroy the world many years ago. After being freed from his prison, the Lich set out to destroy the Land of Ooo, but is re-killed by Finn who uses the sweater Princess Bubblegum gave him to rip off the top of his skull, collapsing his entire body. The Lich reappears in the following episode where his disembodied spirit survived by taking possession of Princess Bubblegum's body. He was apparently expelled from Bubblegum after she was frozen by the Ice King but the end of the episode shows the Lich's spirit residing in the Snail's body. Initially named the "Lich King" and referred as such in "His Hero", he was later referred to simply as "the Lich" (as of "Mortal Folly" and "Mortal Recoil"), presumably to avoid legal concerns with a Warcraft character of the same name.
  • Gunther (voiced by Tom Kenny) - Gunther is a small penguin who lives in the Ice Kingdom. The Ice King calls Gunther his pet, though instead of doing any tricks, Gunther mainly "sits there and makes little squealing noises." Gunther is revealed to be female in "The Chamber of Frozen Blades/Her Parents". Gunther also makes an appearance in "It Came from the Nightosphere" where Marceline's father was sucking the souls of the penguins in the Ice Kingdom. She was one of the penguins that survived, asking Marceline's father for his own soul.
  • Marceline's Father (voiced by Martin Olson) - Marceline's dad is the Lord of Evil and lives in the Nightosphere. He sucks the souls out of animals and people (failing only to claim Gunther's) in order to achieve ultimate power. He can only be summoned by performing a specific ritual. He appears first in the episode "It Came from the Nightosphere" where Finn asks Marceline where her father lives. She then explained the summoning ritual required to free him from the Nightosphere, and Finn acted it out while she was talking, not knowing that he was the Lord of Evil. After arriving in Ooo, Marceline's father tries to suck all the souls out of everyone in the world. At some point in the past, he ate Marceline's french fries, an event which bothered her to the point of writing a song called "Daddy, Why Did you Eat my Fries?". He also shows up in the episode "Memory of a Memory" where Finn and Jake go deep into Marceline's mind and witness him eating his daughter's fries.
  • Susan Strong (voiced by Jackie Buscarino) - Susan Strong (who received the name from FInn after her mispronunciation of "sun" twice) lives underground with the other members of the Hyoomen Tribe( made up of fish-fin mutants) whom she leads in an attack against the Candy Kingdom. After the events of "Beautopia", it is implied that she may be an actual human and trying to have Finn move to Beautpoia. At first,as evidenced in the episode "Susan Strong", she cannot speak much English and is afraid of many things, but then Finn and Jake teach her about the ways of Ooo. Susan lives up to her name, since while she is easily startled, she is strong enough to crush boulders with her arms.

The series has completed two seasons of thirteen episodes each, and a third season premiered on July 11, 2011.[19] In April 2011, Pendleton Ward stated that writing on a fourth season was underway.[9]

Some episodes were drafted, such as "Jake Suit", but were not used; instead they were incarnated into other episodes.[20]

Reception

Reviews

The show has received positive reviews. Television critic Robert Lloyd, in an article for the LA Times covering the new series, said it "strikes [him] as a kind of companion piece to the network's [then] currently airing Chowder and The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack. Each takes place in a fantastical land peopled with strange, somewhat disturbing characters and has at its center a young male person or person-like thing making his way in that world with the help of unusual, not always reliable, mentors."[21] He went on to say that the show is "not unlike CN's earlier Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, about a boy and his imaginary friend, though [it is] darker and stranger and even less connected to the world as we know it."[21] Lloyd also compared it to "the sort of cartoons they made when cartoons themselves were young and delighted in bringing all things to rubbery life."[21] The show has also garnered much more of an adult and teen fan base than the creators expected. Metacritic, a site that reviews shows and movies, gives Adventure Time a 9.2, indicating "universal acclaim" for season 1.[22]

A scene from the short.

The animated short "Adventure Time" aired as part of Frederator Studios' Random! Cartoons on December 7, 2008, subsequently leading to the creation of the animated series.

The short focuses on a boy named Pen (the character who would later be renamed Finn) and a dog named Jake as they learn from Lady Rainicorn that the Ice King has kidnapped Princess Bubblegum, in the hope of marrying her. Declaring that it's "Adventure Time", Pen and Jake set off for the Ice King's mountain lair. Pen and the Ice King fight while Jake remains outside flirting with Lady Rainicorn, ignoring the battle. Just when Pen seems to be gaining the upper hand, the Ice King uses his "frozen lightning bolts" to freeze Pen in a block of ice. For unexplained reasons, this transports Pen's mind "back in time, and to Mars" where he has a short motivational conversation with Abraham Lincoln. After being told to believe in himself, Pen is returned to the present, just in time to see the Ice King fly away with Princess Bubblegum. Chasing after him using Jake's extendable legs, Pen rescues the princess from the Ice King's grasp. Jake pushes the magical crown off the Ice King's head, thereby removing the King's source of power. The Ice King then plummets off screen, yelling a long list of complex threats of things he will do when he returns. The story closes with Princess Bubblegum giving Pen a kiss, which he enjoys but which embarrasses him greatly. He attempts to leave, but Jake claims that they have nowhere else to go and that there are no adventures that need them. Fortunately, some nearby ninjas are stealing an old man's diamonds, and they both run off in pursuit.
