Adventure Time: The Complete Fourth Season is more of what you’d expect from such a zany oddball children’s program. Set in a fictional fantasy land, the Emmy-Award winning Adventure Time surmises the adventures of a boy named Finn and his yellow, shape-shifting dog buddy named Jake. Together they get into mischief, battle evil-doers, save the day, and sometimes just chillax. This season finds our heroes at it again by say, turning into a Hug Wolf, fighting against each other over a game of card wars, and confronting the vile Lich. Other series mainstays include Princess Bubblegum, Marceline the Vampire Queen, The Ice King, BMO (pronounced Bee-mo) a strange little living game console, and Lady Rainicorn (a weird snakelike rainbow unicorn).
If any of this sound a bit ridiculous, you would be right. Adventure Time could surely make a claim for being one of the strangest, if not THE strangest show on Cartoon Network, and that’s saying something. I have to admit, I sort of turned my kids on to this show, trying to steer them clear of other not so exciting and monotonous “baby” shows they used to watch in favor of more quasi-adult themed shows, or at least something I could tolerate. This show turned out to be such a hit with them that it became required viewing and has since taken up residence on our DVR queue for premiere episodes. Of course they still watch repeat episodes every chance they get. The show is also very popular among the teen and twenty-something demographic as well. You might be hard pressed to find toys or merchandise for Adventure Time in general department stores, but guaranteed to have those items and more in stock at Hot Topic any given day of the week. Beautifully hand drawn artwork with a bright, vivid color palette, Adventure Time really “pops” on blu-ray. Complete with commentaries by the creators is sure to find a home in your children’s collection whether they are 6 or 26.
