Critic Reviews for Adventure Time Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4)

Far more than the fantastical adventures of a boy named Finn and his talking dog Jake in the Land of Ooo, "Adventure Time" is a surreal romp that is sophomoric in one moment and sage the next.

The Land of Ooo itself is like an epic crayon sketch you might expect to find on an imaginative eight-year-old's chain restaurant kid's menu.

Pendleton Ward's animated fantasy series pulls you through a portal to the days of running home from school, sitting cross-legged inches from the TV, and being thoroughly delighted by a cartoon.

Older kids capable of getting the show's tongue-in-cheek, ironic, and referential humor will revel in the nonsensical fun, and are likely to be hooked by the sumptuous and surprisingly deep Adventure Time universe.

While some shows start off a bit shaky, Adventure Time is on fire, pretty much from the start of the series. The humor is lightning-fast and refreshingly funny.

One of the most important measures of success in fantasy is the ability to create a large, intricate and inviting parallel world... Watching the first season in sequence offers proof that Adventure Time does this as well as any current children's cartoon.

They are not the sort of cartoons they made when I was a boy, though they are in some ways the sort of cartoons they made when cartoons themselves were young and delighted in bringing all things to rubbery life.

Often plays like a Dungeons & Dragons game run by a 13-year-old on a massive sugar high.

It's simply... algebraic.

Adventure Time's penchant for experimentation was both admirable and skillfully executed... Despite the show's overall comedic tone, it handled its biggest ideas with gravitas and sincere emotion.

Super Reviewer

Fun and harmless show. The retro cards and pop culture references are some of the sharpest on Tv. 11-06-2018.
