Adventure Time is a deep and meaningful show

It took me a few episodes to realize it, but it's not just a dumb kids show. Having watched it quite a bit lately, I can see that it has a deep and moving emotional undercurrent as well as a twisted, tortured history to the land of Ooo. I have my own theory about what happened, and I'm interested in hearing what you guys think

I like it because it's fun and also both the girls and boys get to have interesting personalities. I don't know if I'd call it all that deep and meaningful, but it is nice that the show has something more to offer than just random humor.

Allegory is not truly present in all works of fiction, many of those works that appear to have deep allegorical symbols and messages are not necessarily intended or focused on. But in the case of Adventure Time I'm pretty sure it is more of a creative approach than an Allegorical one, so they might slip in a deep concept in an episode or two.

I liked that episode where they go into someplace like hell, where a lazy guardian guards the entrance. Also love all the original and creative concepts. Very inspiring I say.

It's one of those mainstream fabs. Cool show, but a tad over hyped.

That show is bananas.

You want to know a REALLY deep and meaningful show? One that will blow the minds of anyone brave enough to stare deep into its very leylines and discover the meaning of nonentities?

Teletubbies. When I first peered into the face of that smiling Sun-baby, I saw the mind of God. And my human inferiority could not comprehend the truths that I had just discerned.

You can find "meaning" and "deepness" in everything. So no.

But not in 'tangible' facts.

I think you're just obsessively overestimating the real value of the show.

Seriously, she's not ^^; It's kinda weird though, I think they added most of the depth in the later seasons, the first one at least had really simple messages.

No, really ^^; Some of the messages are more of just "the moral to the story" type things. I only just recently got into the show, I thought it was stupid and weird before. Not saying you have to like it, just saying that this person isn't making stuff up.

So you're saying it's not possible for the creators of the show to realize that their show attracted a following of older viewers and catered to their interests?
