    Adventure Time!

    So, who else watched the Christmas special and saw the genuinely poignant and terrible revelation about the Ice King?

    The show continues to surprise me with moments like this, Susan Strong, Peebles aging back to normal. There's some surprising moments of depth there.

    Just when I think the Ice King can't become more fucked up, they surprise me.

    I loved the recent episode. The Ice King's past was kinda sad, yet creepily funny at the same time. Though I'm still wondering WHY he was turning blue... Probably the crown. I'd love to see more.


    It's kinda odd with me and AT. I liked it at first, then went to hating it, along with Regular Show, now I love it. Still hate RS, though.

    I love Adventure Time. I actually can do the voices of Ice King and LSP pretty good. It is amazing at how much this show can give me just straight up lol's. Like the "scream" commercial. Or "Jake, show em your muscles" "woo!" Needless to say, I watch it any chance I get. I bought the Finn and Jake figures, as well as the punching ones.

    I think that one started with something like: "Everyone know what time it is?!"

    Adventure Time is easily my favorite show on CN that doesn't air new episodes on Friday (and even then, it's high up there). I had only caught the ending of the special but it really furthered the Ice King as a funny yet tragic character.

    Also, I had no idea that the episodes were on Youtube (then again, I never searched for specific episodes). That's good to know since one of my friends never gets the chance to see the show (no cable).

    Lies, I cant find the first Susan Strong episode to save my life.

    Anyway yes I love this series and just came to the revelation that the land of OO is in fact post apocalypse earth. It was first shown in Marcelines memories as a child, and then the transition is shown again during the Ice Kings transformation scene. And they hint at it even more with the mutated people from the sewers with Susan. My god this show got so deep. I love it!

    I hope I'm not poking at a beehive here, but could anyone shed some light as to what you find appealing in this series?

    Yes yes I know, what right do I, an obvious MLP:FiM fan, have in requesting others to explain what they like in a cartoon...

    With MLP, I got into it because of all the online buzz it was getting, and ended up liking its adorable art style, slick animation and strong characterizations.

    I noticed that Adventure Time had quite a bit of buzz about it too, and decided to check a few episodes.

    While I found said episodes to be genuinely funny, I find myself unable to get into the art style (the whole thin flailing limbs thing and simplistic faces). And the way the first episode (not the pilot) introduces all the characters like we're supposed to know them already was a bit of a whammy for me.
    (Though I did end up liking Marceline, post episode 10)

    Is there something I'm not getting, or is this simply a case of "your mileage may vary"? Again, not looking to challenge, just trying to get some perspective.
