What’s it all about?
Well, in Season 3 of Adventure Time, it’s all about the music. And the battles. And monsters, mystery, and so much more! Welcome back to the weirdly animated world of human boy Finn, his faithful sidekick Jake, and their many friends (and foes), as they navigate their way through new mathematical adventures in the magical Land of Ooo
Character Finn ages a year every season to stay in sync with actor Jeremy Shada’s changing voice.
According to series founder Pendleton Ward, Jake’s personality is based on Bill Murray’s character Tripper Harrison in the movie Meatballs.
In every episode except one, a small snail appears on screen and waves to the audience.
This animated show is unique in that the cast gets together in one room to do the voiceovers.
Adventure Time is one of only two shows to be renewed by Cartoon Network past six seasons.
- A must-have for Adventure Time fans
- The complete third season of this hit cartoon show
- Contains 26 episodes, commentaries and more

Well, all that still holds true. But do I have anything fresh to say? Anything more to add that justifies writing this third review?
As an audience, we're no longer automatically blown away by the sheer range and depth the creators of this series are so obviously capable of. We've just come to expect it. So we're not going to be stunned by this offering in quite the same way that we might have been by earlier seasons. But we are in no way left wanting: the quality has not dropped one jot. And although on one level this series is more of the same, the show most definitely continues to develop. It's never reduced to mere repetition or self referencing.
In keeping with the underlying trend of past seasons, the complexity of the characters continues to evolve. Perhaps the most marked and obvious examples of this are in two of my all time favorite episodes, "Holly Jolly Secrets, parts 1 and 2". But I'm not going to say any more than that. If you've seen those episodes, you know exactly what I'm talking about. And if you haven't, I don't want to deprive you of the experience of going on that journey for yourself.
This trend towards ever increasing character complexity is also apparent in such coming-of-age episodes as "Too Young" and "Incendium", although never in an obvious or heavy handed way.Read more ›
From what I can tell, this set is very similar to the second season. It will include commentaries for all the episodes, as well as a mystery featurette (the details haven't been release on that yet). From what I've heard, Pendleton Ward and co. were trying really hard when they recorded the commentary to not have any "orange juice" moments (this was their code word for comments that were either spoilery or considered inappropriate), so I'm hoping the commentaries will be a bit better than they previously have been.
As for the show itself, this season is fantastic. While I don't think it's as good as the second or fourth season, this year was a big one for "Adventure Time"; the introduction of Fionna and Cake, the revelation of the Ice King's backstory, and various holiday episodes made this year one to be remembered. Stand-out episodes include the aforementioned specials like "Thank You", "From Bad to Worse", "Holly Jolly Secrets", and "Fionna and Cake", as well as the sorta-controversial "What Was Missing" (the birth of Bubbline), the dark installments like "The New Frontier" and "No One Can Hear You", and finally, the introduction of Flame Princess in the finale, "Incendium".
This is a treat for all "Adventure Time" fans! Buy it, and hopefully we can get the rest soon!
Season three contains many great episodes, but also several of the most notable ones to date, including the popular Fionna and Cake episode. Adventure Time is fully in stride this season.
Honestly, writing a review is kind of pointless. If you've watched the first two seasons, you either love it and will be grabbing this no matter what I say, or you hate it, in which case you're probably not likely to read a review of season three. So basically it doesn't really matter what I say. BLEEP BLORP!
*ahem* but anyway, this release gets a preemptive five starts, and my hopes that Season 4, which includes even more of the series' best episodes, is just around the corner!

Ok the quality of the show and DVDs itself it perfect, but can we talk about the commentary....
I'm honestly not sure why the people on the commentary bonus feature were... Read more
I was hoping to receive the DVD case with the slip cover but it wasn't included. The discs themselves function fine and it doesn't appear to be a used copy so I'm satisfied.Published 2 months ago by Missy
