So today I have chosen to review a cartoon on Cartoon Network. Now I know what you are thinking; “Cartoon Network? man those are all shitty kids shows.” Normally you would be right but since the rapid decline in viewership of the channel, they have increased in quality shows that are just dripping with hidden adult jokes and themes. I have for you to consider a show called Adventure Time with Jake and Finn. Now let me began with trying to describe this show, and the basic part of the story that always stays the same is that it is the adventure of Finn an adventures human and his brother/friend Jake the dog who has stretchy powers (I kid you not that is what they call it). They live in the land of Ooo and go about fighting monster's and getting into outrageous situations. Now you might think it sounds dumb, but just wait, because this is not an average show. Every episode is basically one amazing acid trip. The storylines are incredibly surreal and down right funny.
There are references to drugs quite often; for god sakes there is a character called LSP, I mean really? The content at times can be down creepy or outright euphoric, and the jokes and action can really lead some one to question if it is a kids show. The artwork of the show is simply mind blowing. The colors are simply memorizing, and after a few bowls you could swear you are inside the cartoon. The voice acting is perfect. They even cast the voice of bender from Futurama as Jake the dog. Those of you who watched shows such as Rocko's Modern Life will feel right at home in this new era of cartoons. The last thing I will add of this show is the amazing soundtrack. They will and one moment play some of the best Dubstep I have heard and then switch to Mozart and then to japan techno.
There is such a variety to the show you can find something for just about anyone. I recommend this too anyone regardless of their sobriety state, but if you can; light a bowl, or drop some acid, sit back, and enjoy as you are warped too the Land of Ooo.
