Adventure Time with Finn & Jake Discussion Thread


Television


Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

I thought we had a general thread for this, and all I found with the BILLY! thread I started. This should be more useful.

Adventure Time, the most D&D carton ever, had for a long time an implied setting in a post-apocalyptic world. That setting has sense been made explicit. The cause of the apocalypse was the Great Mushroom War.

Here's a fact that recently struck me: I can only think of three characters that are good candidates for having lived before the Apocalypse, and one of those is absolutely certain.

Spoiler:
The Ice King was originally a scholarly antiquarian named Simon Petrikov, until he found the crown and it began his transformation into the Ice King. The scenes from the videos in Holly Jolly Secrets I and II show this. By extension, we could say that Ricardio is also a pre-apocalyptic character.

Marcelline the Vampire Queen and Marcelline's dad (the Lord of all Evil) are probable candidates for having been around before the Mushroom War, whether as humans or vampires, although I can't find any confirmation of this.

Those are the only characters I can think of as surviving from before the current age of the Land of Ooo. Anybody have any observations about this or anything else in series?

I wanna dog like Jake

Princess Bubblegum is a tease. I am deffo Team Evil Flame Princess

This show is basically how we played D&D at 13. Stellar games, little if any rules contemplation, impossible things, genre mash ups and pure win all weekend long before Monday hit and it was back to Social Studies with Mr Fritz and his bad toupee

Oh and show tunes!

I'm on a boat with a couple of whackos
Shaking my hips and a dippin' my back toes
In the waaaatah
Dippin' in the waaaatah
This party's gettin' hawter!
It's so hot that it's ... Stupid

That's a good one. But does it stand next to:

Prelude:

As a tropical Island (repeated four times)

Verse 1:
On a tropical island,
Underneath a molten lava moon.
Hangin' with the hula dancers,
Askin' questions cause' they got all the answers.

Verse 2:
Puttin' on lotion! Sittin' by the ocean!
Rubbin' it on my body! Rubbin' it on my body!

Verse 3:
Get me out of this caa-a-ve,
'cause it's nothing but a gladiator graa-a-ve.
And if I stick to the plaa-a-n,
I think I'll turn into a lava maa-a-n.
I think I'll turn into a lava man!

Adventure Time Rocks!

I'm currently catching this show by accident, on Cartoon Network.
So many of the jokes fly over my daughter's head, being gamer-specific or about 'smooching', but it's a great show for a grown up and an 8-year-old to share and laugh at (albeit, not always at the same time).

Does anyone know if it's been collected on Region 2 DVD?


The best subversive "children's" cartoon out there.

Best line:
Magic Man after changing Finn into a foot;
Finn - "Change me back!"
Magic Man - "Not until you appreciate how much of a jerk I'm being."

Snorter: Did you have any luck with the DVD?

So, Finn is 14 and Jake is 28, but they are both babies of roughly the same size in DAD'S DUNGEON. Pendleton Ward has answered the question about whether Jake's age is in human or dog years by answering, "magical dog years." So, roughly two years for every human year instead of 7?

SIGH, your so trying to get me to watch this show aren't you??

But wasn't Jake just a regular dog until he rolled in some magic mud?

The mud's magic did something to Jake's aging process?

The special two-part in the Nightosphere was pretty fun. The amulet fills one with "Chaotic Evil. Just like I was raised." Heh-heh.

-Do you want pain, weird punishment or pleasure?

-weird punishment!

Some friends just now got me started on the show. I don't know how I've managed to get by this long without hearing exchanges like:

Demon Cat: Hello, Frank the Human Boy.

Finn the Human Boy: *gasp* How did you almost know my name?

Demon Cat: I have approximate knowledge of many things...

:D

"We can Wander through the Forest, and do so as we please."

The Post Apocalyptic World
According to Marceline it has been a thousand years since the Mushroom wars.
Humans cower in fear in subterranean caves beneath the earth.
Cities are buried beneath the Earth and Deep in the bottom of the Seas.
Magic has made a return.

We just discovered this show for ourselves: this is our new favorite program. I can't believe I've been missing this. We're having a marathon viewing of the first four seasons this weekend.


Yeah, I started watching recently too. Up to episode 6(?) of the 5th season now.

I like Finn and the Flame King's discussion about Flame Princess' alignment. Funny and kinda touching at the same time.

One of the smartest most subversive toons on television.

It's like bottled nostalgia.

My favorite moment:

"This cosmic dance of bursting decadence and withheld permissions twists all our arms collectively, but if sweetness can win, and it can, then I'll still be here tomorrow, to high five you yesterday my friend. Peace"

This was the first thing I ever saw of Adventure Time and it hooked me immediately.

Big reveal. Marcelene the vampire queen is simon 'iceking' petrovich's girlfriend. Mind blown.
