TLDR

I feel like an entire generation watched this and realized being weird isn't for them.

What it's about

A heroic young boy and a magical shapeshifting dog go on surreal adventures and battles.

The take

It’s a show with existential questions from an idealistic kid presented in the most absurd way. Finn the human and Jake the dog navigate emotions and dilemmas packaged into journeys and battles of varying degrees of cuteness and danger. The show's colors are extremely bright and virtually every character is a unique creature, which can be overstimulating unless your brain is specifically ready for it. One of the benefits of having a big cast of characters per episode, though, is more chances to connect with something on the show, and a fairly large episode count means the show will have had so many quirky songs, recurring characters, nuggets of advice, and story arcs to dive into. Just like any other candy, Adventure Time should give you a boost if you don't choke on it.

What stands out

Check out a song from the show. If you dig the vibes, it's worth checking out at least 1 season of this show.
