Adventure Time is Cartoon Networks newest show taking chowder’s place in the line up.

I waited for a bit to post anything on this, since I can never tell if a new show will be any good in the beginning. It’s up to their 6th episode and they just introduced Marceline the Vampire Queen. This show is just awesome. It’s has a bit of adult humor mixed into the children show, not so much that would ever offend parents, but enough things popped out to me that made it feel like it was a bit more than a typical children show.

Everything is surreal and usually episodes either start at the end of one adventure, end with the beginning of a new adventure, or both. It’s like the inner child of the creator was released with full force. ¬†Usually shows that try this route end badly, since a nonsensical show could leave the audience with a gaping void to connect with.

This show doesn’t take it serious enough and it’s more character based. ¬†Jake is a lovable dog with magic powers, dating a rainbow unicorn that speaks Korean and gets power from light. Finn is a human who loves to adventure, fight, doing the right thing, and has a crush on a bubblegum princess that is has half human half gum, DNA that does science.

Where many other shows were limited to a certain surrounding, Chowder has a food based world, Flapjack has pirates, Spongebob has the ocean theme and Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy have everything spooky.
This show’s setting has all of that and more. The land of Ooo is just about everything you can imagine and if you can’t imagine it the creators can.

Words can’t describe this show too well I will let these videos do that for me.

    That looks really kind of strange and yet you couldn’t stop looking at it. Thanks for sharing.

    I’ve been eagerly waiting for this show since I saw the first short in 2007. Now that it’s finally hear I couldn’t be more delighted. It’s so full of content that it takes a number of watchings to really catch all the jokes and humor in each episode. The driving force behind this show is creativity and with no limit to their ideas we can hopefully see this series run for quite a while.

    The only issue I have is that it’s on at the same time as How I Met Your Mother.

      Wait you will watch “How I Met your Mother” but won’t watch “Big Bang Theory”.
