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 magic and mischievous dog. The DVD includes all 26 episodes from season 1 and tons of special features done by the creator. The Adventure Time: The Complete First Season DVD is packaged with a collectible slipcover and a must have for any Adventure Time Fan!]]>
That blend of grownup, self-aware humor and childlike silliness can be difficult to balance, but Adventure Time frequently succeeds, thanks in part to the epic sprawl of its universe, which provides a sizable canvas that preserves the tone of the series while maintaining a never-ending supply of weird and wonderful encounters. It is unquestionably an acquired taste, but it's also a sweetly offbeat series and an awful lot of fun. The two-disc set includes a healthy selection of extras, most notably commentary tracks on four episodes, including "Tree Trunks," which features some amusing anecdotes from Ward's mother and family friend Polly Lou Livingston, who also provide voices in the episode. The three featurettes are a mixed bag: A Behind-the-Scenes Featurette is a surreal barrage of sight gags filmed in the Adventure Time production offices by Ward with his phone, while the Behind the Scenes of the Behind the Scenes gets even sillier. A 10-minute talk with the show's music editors takes an equally left-of-center approach, though the nearly hour-long collection of animatics and a two-minute episode called "The Wand" are fairly straightforward. The only true letdown is the lack of a Blu-ray presentation, which would accurately preserve the show's HD broadcast quality. --Paul Gaita

This is the show I point people to when they get on their nostalgic high horse and claim quality animation to be a thing of the past. An amazingly quirky fantasy cartoon about adventure and friendship, achieving humour without the cynicism that has become prominent throughout television these days.
I could not be happier. Cartoon Network has an amazing show on their hands, and this is a great step in giving fans proper releases. We just have to pray they don't give up halfway through as they seem to with every single other show.
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.
I am a big fan of the show and I have been waiting for this for quite a while. I was just about to break down and buy the other 2 video collections. But, I came across this this morning and now I am going to pre-order this DVD asap...
This is one of the best shows on TV right now. I will have to wait until july to review the DVD itself. But as long as they don't remove anything or tamper with anything I think it will get 5 stars
I don't exactly know how the DVD is going to be laid out or what all it is going to contain. ( Extra content like commentaries and how they will number the episodes ) but hopefully it will contains all of the following episodes.
Slumber Party Panic
Trouble in Lumpy Space
Prisoners of Love
My Two Favorite People/,,Memories of Boom Boom Mountain"
Ricardio the Heart Guy
Finn the Wizard
City of Thieves
The Witch's Garden
What Is Life?
Ocean of Fear
When Wedding Bells Thaw
Rainy Day Daydream

This is one thing that I'm always a stickler about, good packaging. Adventure Time Season 1 has amazing packaging as they make the entire dvd opening process into a dissection of the character Finn. When you remove the cardboard sleeve you also release Finns flowing golden locks of awesome man hair. Open up the dvd case and along with the paper insert listing the episodes you'll also find artwork of Finn essentially skinless. Oh but it doesn't stop there as on the first disc is Finns skull and the second disc is Finns brain and eyes.
Dvd studios should take a lesson from this set and realize that the packaging can be almost half the fun along with the actual content. I almost always throw the cardboard sleeve away as it's useless, but Adventure Time Season 1 gives me a reason to NOT chuck it as I wouldn't have this hilarious disassemble.
5 out of 5
Here is essentially what your getting. Both discs combined will run a little bit over 5 hours. There is a play all button and if you can also skip past the opening in every episode. Anamorphic Widescreen with Dolby Stereo 2.0.
