ADVENTURE TIME: SEASON 1 MOVIE

A genuinely inspired amalgamation of fantasy tropes liberally frosted with absurd humor, the animated series Adventure
Time is a charmingly cracked confection that deserves its devoted cult following. Set in a faraway kingdom called Ooo,
the series follows the caffeinated adventures of Finn the Human (Jeremy Shada) and his bespectacled talking dog Jake
(John DiMaggio, Futurama) as they thwart the misunderstood but mostly evil Ice King (Tom Kenny, SpongeBob SquarePants)
from his regular attempts to kidnap Princess Bubblegum (Hynden Walch, Teen Titans). Aiding them in their escapades are
the bass-playing Vampire Queen (Olivia Olson, Phineas and Ferb), petulant extraterrestrial Lumpy Space Princess (voiced
by series creator Pendleton Ward), and Beemo (Niki Yang), a sentient but playable video game console. The 26
mini-episodes that comprise the show's first season pit the heroes against a dizzying array of oddities, including candy
zombies in "Slumber Party Panic," a pie-throwing robot (Andy Milonakis), and "Ricardio the Heart Guy," a living heart
suavely voiced by George Takei. But more often than not, the characters' own personal issues make for the most inspired
moments, most notably in "When Wedding Bells Thaw," where Finn and Jake try to encourage the Ice King to give up his
princess-kidnapping pursuits by throwing him a bachelor party.

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
