there is something about it I like and pulls me its is a little to random and creepy at times. But over all, I do not like it very much but don't hate it much just think its a little inappropriate and there are a lot of better cartoons out there.
I thought Cartoon was coming to an end, until Adventure Time and Regular Show . (The two best shows ever) Came to my life. I mean, its really something that made me enjoy cartoon in a way which is epic and I CANT STOP WATCHING IT
Adventure Time is a show I've never EVER EVER even could've imagined of. When I was 10, the first episode (Business Time, which aired before Slumber Party Panic) was on On Demand and it looked like the STUPIDEST show ever. It seemed inappropriate, dumb, and din't make sense. Luckily, i stayed with the program, because as the first season had recently ended, despite the fact I wasn't a huge fan of it, I couldn't stop watching it. Was it the amazing, unique animation of the two dotted eyes and cute lil' faces that no other show has, or the complete randomness that occurs in Ooo. Was it the poorly planned plots that usually wouldn't make it on TV? I dunno, but LOOK AT ME NOW! I've seen every episode and AM THE BIGGEST ADVENTURE TIME FAN EVER. I was convinced to get posters, merchandise, clothes themed as .. And I kept watching and watching. WOW! This is pretty good stuff! I thought, now 11. As the seasons passed by I noticed the Adventure Time factor was lowering and drama was occurring, with relationships, curiosity, war, the Lich. it started getting more "interesting". There was less "one-part-episodes" and more "series-events" that slowly creeped its way into each episode. It was like, season 3 and I was addicted. It's kind of a "GEEK" show, no popular kids would watch it, so I kept it more of a secret and I want into my room every night and watched it over and over again. Suddenly, I lost On Demand cuz we were running low on money so I started skipping clubs, and sports JUST TO SEE IT! Here I am now, a 13 years old and it's almost the end of season five. I'm losing interest as they publish episodes less often but I must say, Adventure Time CHANGED MY LIFE FOREVER! It's a BIG part of my childhood and my #! show! I'm becoming less secretive of it too. Thank You Pen and cast, BEST SHOW EVER! SO UNIQUE, FUNNY, DRAMATIC, RELATABLE, STRANGE, WEIRDLY ANIMATED, YOUNG ADULT CONCERTED, AND MANY MUCH MORE! LIKE IF ADVENTURE TIME IS AN AWESOME SHOW! :D <3
This cartoon is extremeley overrated and I'm getting tired of seeing the praise for this show. The premise isn't original. A kid and a shape shifting dog that go on random adventures. Seriously, it's like Flapjack meets Johnny Test! The colors, artwork and character designs are nice. The animation is probably my biggest complaint for this show, everyone moves like puppets and it looks like it was drawn by an elbowless five year old. The artwork is great, and not too colorful because there are enough dark atmesphores in this show. Most of the characters are unique exept Finn because he's slways annoying and never shuts up. The humor is mainly just adult humor, fart jokes and dark humor. It can be funny sometimes, but other times it can be really disturbing and overall the show is really random and kinda retarted. Overall, Adventure Time isa fair cartoon, but all I'm saying is CN could've done alot better for what they did do for this show. Rating: 4/10 sometimes it can be good other times its bad.
The show did have a few funny moments but I think that it was the character designs and some of the plot lines that is causing me to give this show a poor score. It feels like a slight rip off of "Regular Show" just like how "Family Guy" ripped off "The Simpsons".
I reviewed this before. But like with Regular Show, I decided to watch more of it to see if I maybe judged to soon, and I did. So here is my re-review of Adventure Time.
Adventure Time is about a boy and his magical, talking dog, who go on crazy adventures around the land of Ooo (I still think thats a dumb name). The show's plot is a good one. Which is why I was kinda disappointed with the show itself. A good share of the episodes are good, but there's also more than a few that are kinda strange. However, the humor of the show makes up for it a bit in my opinion, even though a lot of it is inappropriate. Some of the slang the characters use though is a bit stupid (Shmow Zow? Really?).
The main characters are pretty likable. Finn's a cool kid, though his hat is one of the stupidest things I've ever seen. Jake's cool also, and his powers are interesting, Bubblegum and Marceline are both cool girls, but Ice King, should he even be considered the main antagonist? I don't know, with how often he'll get along with Finn and Jake, it's kinda debatable. Seriously half the time they fight, then they'll turn around and act like the best of friends. Plus, he's not so much a threat, as a nuesence. But he's at least okay compared to Lemongrab, who I find annoying as hell!
My biggest problem with Adventure Time is its animation. It's one of the ugliest animation styles I've ever seen. It looks like the show was drawn by a 4 year old. Apart from those problems, its got great voice acting. It also has some pretty good action scenes. Its a lot better than shit like Regular Show, Amazing World of Gumball and Johnny Test. I still find Adventure Time a tad overrated, but it's not as overrated as Regular Show, and it's far better than I gave it credit for before.
Don't judge this book by it's cover! This show is both light & dark, shallow & deep, up & down all at the same time. I didn't watch it for a while at first because I simply thought it was a show for little kids. I didn't realize that the brilliant writing was so that kids, teens, and even adults could watch this show. I mean set in a post apocalyptic future after nuclear destruction YET candy people live in a candy kingdom. Little kids don't grasp the spooky painful background so they simply accept the premise (similar to some video game) and enjoy the funny colorful characters. While teens and adults grasp the awesome tragic background of a future filled with mutants, spirits, demons, and what seems to be a world where the spiritual after life has melded with that of the living. Ever so often you even get a glimpse in the background of perhaps a map or globe that shows the Earth with a chunk blown out of it. Then you have all these sub plots and premises that help the characters deepen. They are more than just fun loving bits of candy but perhaps lost souls or simply mutants of what is left of the human race. The show is also riddled with symbolism that at first glance appears to be simple character & props but seems to hold deeper truths and meanings... One last note is the story of the Ice King (Simon) and Marceline which was very touching. At first we dislike the introduction of both of them and they appear to be cliche' villains but then they win our minds, hearts, and curiosity by showing us their past just after the nuclear war. We then realize that it's not like past cartoons or movies in which the characters are cut & dry, more than just eye-candy. But much deeper & much more mysterious. I rank this show so high for 3 main reasons 1. Creativity 2. They actually TRY to make it good and not just stick to some writing formula. and 3. Compared to other TV shows today it's one of the few that are even good by comparison. Not that this show couldn't hold it's own even with other great shows but you have to appreciate that someone cares enough to write something good in a sea of terrible tv shows. And PS I think some people rate this show low (like one of the ratings below) because this show goes over his or her head. This person is only looking for the aesthetics so all they see is a simple adventure quest of Finn & Jake with colorful scenes and characters but is unable to actually think about the bigger & smaller pictures, the sub plots, and meaning of symbolism. But I don't blame them I actually blame the American TV Networks for spoon feeding us mundane brainwashing shows such as on Nick, Disney, and Fam. It's all CGI pretty things with cliche' scripts. So people find it hard to recognize a great show like Adventure Time when it actually comes along. For example they are looking for the characters to actually appear "deep" rather than as symbolic candy. They only know what TV has spoon fed them as being "light" and "dark" that they can't see past what they expect. For example the show is supposed to appeal to both children and adults so of course it's supposed to have predictable jokes. But to the adult (with half a brain) you can look for hidden clues, hidden plots, backgrounds, and hidden questions to bigger topics such as spirituality, horror, suspense, religion, politics, and human conditions... Also this show has short plots and long running plots that take up the span of the entire show. So it's more suited for someone who as patents and doesn't want a quick fix answer to all questions up front. In sum it's the type of show that you need to absorb over a long period of time while looking at both the smaller and larger pictures.
This show is actually pretty cool. It's about a boy named finn and his dog named jake and they both go on non sensical and random adventures. And I think it's funny, sometimes in a so bad it's good kind of way.
The characters all have deep and dark back stories, the animation is really unique and the jokes are basically stupid humour done right.
The only thing I don't like about this show is that just like regular show, some of the newer episodes were a bit bland. But other than that, I really like this show.
Although I agree with oldnickelodeon34, this show does not beat ed edd n eddy and foster's. But it totally and completely PAWNS dora the explorer (more like diarrhea exploder)
Also rebecca sugar, one of the cast members is now making a new show called steven universe that really looks epic.
This is one of the better cartoons out there. It is unique in it's entirety, but I can't fully enjoy it like others can. Because I believe in order to fully enjoy it, you have to throw logic out the window, which is hard for me to do. There are many instances that make absolutely no sense, and the characters are sometimes overly ridiculous, but all in all, it is a fun cartoon.
There is no doubt that this is one of CN's biggest letdowns ever. When I first saw the promos for this show I expected an action packed adventure full of excitement and thrill. Of course I wanted to watch it. So I checked out a few episodes when it came out, and BOY did it look way better in the promos. Instead of the epic adventures I was expecting I got just another mindless, poorly written kid's show with childish humor, unlikeable characters, and stupid plots. This show definitely had potential. I mean a show about a kid and his dog fighting evil in a magical world sounds like a great premise for a TV show. But they just botch it up in every way possible. The epic "hero" in this show (Finn) is no more than a bratty 8 year old who runs around and screams. The epic "villain" in this show (Ice King) is no more than a pathetic 40 year old bachelor who can't seem to get a date. And for a "hero" Finn can be pretty mean and selfish (Ex. wanting to KILL the Ice king because he couldn't sleep). The writing is lousy and uncreative. The epic backstory behind our hero ,Finn is that one day he was taking a crap in the woods (or making a boom boom as he says in his annoying childish voice) he fell back into his own crap, and nobody would help him up so he decided to become a hero. I'm not kidding, That's what our genius writers went with for his backstory. This type of childish humor can be found throughout the show. The humor in this show is similar to that of other low quality cartoons, farting, pooping, vomiting, sex, etc.. People always say how unique this show is from all other kids cartoons out there. But when you break it down for what it really is its just another mindless child occupation show mascaraing under a pile of surreal garbage. The only thing "unique" about this show is it's abuse of surrealism. This show is just completely weird. Not creative weird like futurama, I mean weird for the hell of it. Anyone can come up with this stuff, candy people, flying heads, etc. Between the immature characters, lousy animation, childish humor, and complete weirdness it seems like its written by a 6 year old. Despite all this what really adds insult to injury is the fan base. This show has a ridiculous fan base with a tendency to troll ,flame, and downright hate anyone who dislikes this show. All over the internet when I see negative reviews of this show its usually accompanied by flaming from immature fans. A lot of the reviews logically and intelligently spell out what is wrong with it (such as this one) and typical responses are not so (Ex. Adventure time is awesome u suck fuck u) Immature show, Immature fan base. I suppose it makes sense. But yeah, despite how popular it is I cannot say its a good show by any stretch of the imagination. If you like it then power to you. I'm not judging you for your opinion, I'm just sharing mine.
why would anybody hate this show its a***wwwwwwwssssssssssssssssssssssssooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooommmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
this show is very unique. it insane, its dark, its bouncy, it has gross out humor, and you know what? that works surprisingly well! i usually dont like insane gross out humor shows but this show really works with it well!
it has its dark episodes like it's halloween specials just creeped me out and it has its fun episodes like fionna and cake.
even though they are executed very wierdly, the show does manage to have good morals at times! the characters are also good! finn is this human boy who is silly, has a good heart, and always believes in doing whats right. jake is sort of like that drunk friend of yours that gives good advice (he is my favorite character by the way). the snow king is your socially awkward loner who wants to marry princesses, marceline is your sort of loner yet deep guitar playing deep lonely teenager with angst, princess bubblegum is a smart ass princess who kicks ass with her science, fire princess is this princess with attitude, and much more. all the characters have distinct personalities and its just awesome to see them work off each other in the show! the land of Ooo reminds me of a more creepier, sillier, and wierder version of alice in wonderland. the only thing is, there is no normal person. everyone is insane. if you want to watch this show get ready for some serious weirdness, a little bit of creepiness, a lot of humor, and a lot of heart.
last thing i would like to mention is, this show does something that a lot of tv shows don't do; it has strong female characters.
marceline is this independent, strong young girl who can survive on her own, princess bubblegum is very smart and always finds a way out by being quick on her feet and using her wits, fire princess has her attitude and i love how big and powerful she gets, lumpy space princess (who is technically not no one in this show except finn is technically shaped like princess bubblegum and marceline) is still strong and memorable (probably my favorite characters right next to jake). they are strong females, have different body shapes, and are just memorable.
it's a weird show with good morals, a good heart, really memorable characters, and it's all around just an awesome show to watch!
The secounf worst sheow i ever watch next to gravity falls. Its a badly animated shows about people with no noses and an ugly dog. Oh yea and its bad. iT TAKES Plazce in a post acoptilptic world where no humans live but finn and its bad. You shouldnnt wast ur time wth dis and wach problom solvers or fred the show insteed. Only slightly bette rthan gravity fallz and fesh hookz,
Adventure Time is one of the best Animated series Cartoon Network has ever produced. At first I didn't find its style of animation appealing, but now I am a fan. It is very fun and energetic and the jokes are witty. The characters display a wide array of personalities and are very likable. Even the Ice King, the antagonist, is a joy to watch.
In the beginning when I saw commercials for this show I thought it looked totally stupid. And it is totally stupid, but in a good way. It's quirky without trying too hard, very bizarre and random. But it all feels genuine. It doesn't feel like the writers are trying too hard to be funny. They just let it be what it is. The characters are good, too, and I like that. It's rare to find a cartoon or kid's show these days where the characters aren't completely one-dimensional and dumb. I actually care about them. And there's actually a fairly solid, well-developed background if you look into it. It's surprising how much thought has gone into the show. It's unique without trying to be. I really like it, and it's always a pleasure to watch.
I would like to work the writers of this show. Against the unique backdrop of the "mushroom war" aftermath they have managed to construct an interesting, if not compelling, series of episodes that give life to the characters and spur the viewers imagination. This is truly something different and unique.
The Goliad episode, and Princess Cookies episode are examples of what I mean. (Two of my
Adventure Time is a great show. It is a funny show with originality and awesome characters. Finn is an adventerous and fun, and Jake is a cool dog with magic powers. And together,they go to stop the Ice King from stealing princesses. Most of the episodes were great,but some episodes were weird,like Web Weirdos or the one with Fionna and Cake but overall,the episodes are good most of the time. 9/10 A+. Adventure Time!
Okay, I'd like to say that this is a fantastic show. One thing you NEED to know about is the great mushroom war. It's the lore, and it is fantastic. I'd rather not spoil it, but underneath this 'innocent' show is something darker in story. It's colorful and fun. What most people think is that it's about finn and jake, which is partially true. All I have to say is: GET INTO THE LORE! :) Kthxbai
The show is about a human named fin and his magic talking dog jake the world has secrets in it to show you that something called the mushroom war like the atomic bome that makes a mushroom wich made pricess bubblegum and everyone else except ice king and king was human marcline was half demon if u remember Susan strong she has blonde hair like fin so fins mom maybe but why is fin and ice king are attracted to princess bubblegum they say she is human I believe that I do fin likes her no he is with flame princess now bubblegum is jealous so now the lich he seems o be like a soul but he as human bones on ocean of fear u see a two people on the couch this tells u that the mushroom war took part of the earth u see the earth on the real you and five short gaybles u notice that China and Europ is gone and fin and jake are in Africa so that's where the humans go to be on jake the dog seasone 4 premire the lich has wished that all life on ooo is gone so there is a universe where Simon saved us Marcline is old then fin stole the crown he's like the ice king then the ice kings body is moved the bomb explodes wiping out every one u see liches mortal foally cloud that looks like a mushroom as in he cases the extinct of humans like the mushroom war cloud so the secret to adventure time is the mushroom war. Send me mail to learn more o the mush room war score 2,000
The show is crappy, characters are rarely funny, and the plots are stupid and random. I won't be too harsh on the show though because there were a few good episodes. So this show is lucky I didn't give them a 1.0
I remember when this show first came out, I avoided it like the plague and didn't want to give it a single chance(because CN had canceled most of the good shows) but now, I'm in love with it! The stories have gotten much better since it first appeared, and so has the animation a bit. The character development has been especially interesting for Ice King and Marceline. Well done Cartoon Network! ~Lutari
Adventure Time is about a boy named Finn and his dog Jake who can strecth. They go on adventures across the post-apocalpyic Land of Ooo. The show started out as a short on Nickelodeon's Random Cartoons. then Cartoon network picked up the show. It has good stories(although it can be confusing), funny characters, and great episodes. A great must watch!!!
I absolutely love Adventure Time. I know a lot of people who hate it and make fun of me because of my soft spot for it, but most people are usually too thinly imaginative to understand the meaning of the show. The animation is very creative, and while I guess you could say it falls short just a little at times, I never notice it and the animators have real talent. You have to really be invested in the show to like it and get it. Some people hate the characters because they are different, but hey, that's a good thing. Adventure Time has a flawless story line every episode, and is so original, nothing can come close to it. Some of the adult themes in the show however, are kind of like drawbacks for the children demographics, since most of them just wont get it, but the show makes up for this with its vivid world and enrapturing story.
A lot of my friends watch this show and we're in high school. Since it got a lot of attention and praise, I wanted to see what all the hoopla was about. I watched a couple of episodes; Adventure Time consists of the most random episodes, great characters, and laughable jokes. Not the best show, but it's pretty consistent.
