Product Description

What time is it? It's time for Adventure Time: The Complete First Season DVD. The Cartoon Network's #1 hit comedy show and Emmy nominated series that centers on the post apocalyptic adventures of Finn, a human boy with a funny hat, and his friend Jake. "A genuinely inspired amalgamation of fantasy tropes liberally frosted with absurd humor, the animated series Adventure Time is a charmingly cracked confection that deserves its devoted cult following. Set in a faraway kingdom called Ooo, the series follows the caffeinated adventures of Finn the Human (Jeremy Shada) and his bespectacled talking dog Jake (John DiMaggio, Futurama) as they thwart the misunderstood but mostly evil Ice King (Tom Kenny, SpongeBob SquarePants) from his regular attempts to kidnap Princess Bubblegum (Hynden Walch, Teen Titans). Aiding them in their escapades are the bass-playing Vampire Queen (Olivia Olson, Phineas and Ferb), petulant extraterrestrial Lumpy Space Princess (voiced by series creator Pendleton Ward), and Beemo (Niki Yang), a sentient but playable video game console. The 26 mini-episodes that comprise the show's first season pit the heroes against a dizzying array of oddities, including candy zombies in "Slumber Party Panic," a pie-throwing robot (Andy Milonakis), and "Ricardio the Heart Guy," a living heart suavely voiced by George Takei. But more often than not, the characters' own personal issues make for the most inspired moments, most notably in "When Wedding Bells Thaw," where Finn and Jake try to encourage the Ice King to give up his princess-kidnapping pursuits by throwing him a bachelor party." --Paul Gaita

5.0 out of 5 stars A Major Achievement in Television Feb. 16 2013
By Theo TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
When adults describe a what is nominally a children's show as multi-layered, what we usually really mean is that it has all of two layers: one for the kids and one for us. Adventure Time is so much more. Don't be fooled by the extreme minimalism of the artwork or the simplicity of the basic storylines: this is a _very_ complex and thoughtful piece of television. Not every single episode lives up to the standard I've just described. But as a totality, the season most definitely does.

Adventure Time is the kind of show you can watch as an adult, see maybe half a dozen episodes and think you know exactly where you are. Then along will come an episode that blows away your entire understanding of what it is you're watching. Then, maybe another half dozen episodes down the track, just when you've settled down and think you've regained your bearings, along will come yet another episode that once again changes everything.

And so on.

Perhaps fittingly for a show that will turn many a grown-up's understanding of what a cartoon can be on its head, Adventure Time is entirely uninhibited in referencing an incredibly broad range of cultural touchstones. Whether making subtle "in" jokes about Dungeons & Dragons or drawing on Aristotelian theories of tragedy, if there is one thing that Adventure Time is not, it is a show that assumes that the viewer is stupid. The thing I personally love most about it is the supremely gentle way that it lets us know that yes, there is real darkness in this world, even as it encourages us to confront that darkness with courage and personal integrity; and without losing our own sense of joy and playfulness in the process.

In the end, we might almost say that Adventure Time is a show with as many layers as the viewer him or her self is ready for.

If you miss out on this one, you'll really have missed out on something special.

Theo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Explorer's Quest Aug. 1 2012
By Stella Carrier TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
"Adventure Time: The Complete First Season" is a dvd filled with 26 episodes that are colorful. The extra features include Pendleton Ward taking viewers on a laughter tinged tour around the office of his fellow "Adventure Time" staff. There is also a music bonus that features two men by the name of Casey and Tim explaining how they create the musical soundtrack. "The Witches Garden", "The Duke", "Freak City","Henchman", "Rainy Day Daydream", and "His Hero" were among some of my favorite episodes from the first season. "Adventure Time: The Complete First Season" is safe for all ages and is great for those who enjoy fantasy cartoons.

Hilarious! Silly for the sake of silly and very well written. Try to find this many laughs in a disney cartoon. Not happening.

If you are a fan of Perry Bible, Cyanide and Happiness etc. this show is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Good! Oct. 1 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is my favorite cartoon right now. Great animation, great design, great voice acting. It's all aces. I can enjoy with my adult friends as well as with my 3 year old son. There is truly something for everybody. Easily worth the money to own this forever. Special features and commentaries are a blast, and even the box art is rad.
I hardly even buy DVDs anymore, but I would file this under must buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars something I never thought I would get into Jan. 31 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This cartoon is one of the stranger I've watched, but also one of the best. It makes you laugh even if you're not sure why you did. The characters are so unique in personality and in design. It is a pleasure to watch the animation and hear the strange life lessons this show has to offer. Whether you are young or young at heart, a great pick.
