Ima cry. But just a lil' bit.,
This review is from: Adventure Time: The Complete First Season (DVD)This is one of the very few cartoons that rests on my mental shelf of cartoon greats. It sits next to the Ralph Bakshi release of "Mighty Mouse" from the 80's and 90's as well as the Tick *sigh*. I say "great" because, on my scale of excellence, animation, silliness, and story are second to dialogue and character interaction. Many fine cartoons, across many genres, have not found immortality on my dusty old display-case-of-the-soul, simply because I was not able to remember a single one-liner in a time of social need.
My family watches the episodes of 'the Tick', and 'Adventure Time' as a treat. We sit, watch replays, laugh, quote, and eat cake. It is magic.
We own both previous releases of Adventure Time episodes and look forward to this release. I am going to score many hugs and kisses for this pre-purchase. I am a lucky guy.
Parentals: This show is appropriate for most audiences. There are very vague innuendos, replacement expletives ("what the math?", "Oh my lumps!") and some mild suggestions of 'making out, kissing, and early adolescent ideas of social 'romance' norms. If you are looking for a great time with some interesting commentary on friendship, commitment, and affection, then this is pure magic. If you are putt off by even light romantic references, or if your child is not ready for 'more mature' (in a teen and pre-teen sense)interactions, then parent away, and save this purchase for later in life. But please, don't miss the genius of this production. I can think of 100 cartoons from my youth and more recently, and nearly none of them compare in quality. Take a peek, then make the call, but for goodness's sake, PEEK!
Thanks for reading past my ramblings.
