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 kinda wish it didn't try to have a plot, because as it is, it's kind of a lame and boring one. :hmm: Very few things can pull off serious plot and goofy dumb humour, and this definitely ain't one of those things.

lol it's fun. I started liking it much more when I realized it's pretty much just D&D.

Officially, there was a nuclear war (the mushroom war, I think it's called) and everthing got mutated. They explained it in a special.

But when I started watching the show on and off the first few times, my interpretation was that Finns father had created that world for him to go through and 'beat' to become...a man or king or whatever. Not sure how I would up with that impression, whether I pulled it from the show at some point or just my own head.

I think you are referring to the dungeon that their "father" had created for them. He is actually Jake's dad, Fin is like an adopted brother.

I think it's just wonderful.
I love the adult hints in cartoons like that, too.

I'd really like to come at you, bro, but BC is pretty far from where I am. Can we meet somewhere in the middle? Colorado maybe? I know some great restaurants in Denver metro. I'm sure we can make this work.

That's why AT is my fave show!
They actually have a good crazy twisted backstory to whaat happened and where they are. Usually kids shows are just random with no real purpose XD

It started out as our world, and then the Litch led the forces of evil against all life on earth, and then Simon (the ice king) defeated him with his powers of ice and snow before the crown stole the last of his sanity. In the aftermath of the war, he found Marceline, who I think was created by the Lord of the Nightosphere because he was allied to the Litch, and took care of her. Overall, not many survived, fin is the only true human left. O.O

It''s a really fun show, and hands down the best show Cartoon Network has aired in a long time. But before I say more, I need to watch some more Adventure Time!
