We’re pretty huge fans! We have a poster on our wall, our desktop, laptop and phone backgrounds are all AT related and we get nervously excited about each new episode. We both love cartoons, so it’s natural that AT would resonate with its subversiveness and great animation. Of course, we each have myriads of reasons for being fans, but a list of my personal favorite episodes might help peg it a bit. If I could, I’d type all day about all of the episodes and how beautiful they are, how they usually teach some sort of great moral, and how they have plenty of cultural references to choose from. But I’ll spare you the pain of my rambling and just give you my personal list of Top 5 Adventure Time Episodes. (Potential Spoilers Below)
Ricardio The Heart Guy
Neither of us are big Princess Bubblegum fans, even though she’s a badass chick that’s portrayed as smart and strong. However, with this episode, I respected her character a lot more. Not only did she stand up for herself but it was the first time in a long time I’d seen a woman on-screen actually beat a harassing guy to a pulp. I think it sends a good message to girls that they shouldn’t have to put up with harassment and advances from other people just because they feel entitled to them, and they should fight back if they feel like they’re in danger.
Memory of a Memory
This one explored Marceline’s past a bit more, and also gave a look at her softer side. It dealt with abusive relationships and how easy it is to forget about emotional manipulations and allow them back into your life (even with a magic spell working against you), but at the same time, proved that you can and should cut toxic people from your life if all they do is hurt you — and you’ll have friends to back you up on that.
This episode was just… cute. Just too damn cute. And the animation was fabulous, the juxtaposition of hot and cold as transformed through a helpful act was stunningly beautiful by the end.
Holly Jolly Secrets II
The second part to Holly Jolly Secrets not only created more diversity in the AT world (with Jake’s clothing choices) but we also began to see Ice King as more than just an antagonistic force, and so did Finn and Jake. While the tapes were odd, they revealed more about how Ooo came to be and about the Ice King himself. Honestly, this episode made me really invested in watching more Adventure Time, because of the world they had built and simply wanting to know more about the Ice King and his complex past.
I Remember You
After watching this episode, I sat and cried for a good, long while. No cartoon had ever expressed for me the feeling of losing yourself to something outside of your control (like mental illness) before, and none has since. With this episode and the episode “Simon and Marcy,” it sealed the deal that Adventure Time was one of my favorite shows.
Honorable mention: Escape from the Citadel. I was happy that Adventure Time chose to explore the idea that biology/heritage doesn’t always factor into the person you become, nor do parent’s (bio or otherwise) bad actions reflect poorly on you as a person — and sometimes they hurt you just as much as others. I still don’t know how interactions with Finn’s Dad will be resolved, but I do respect them for having that moment of introspection that sometimes your DNA-contributors can be giant butts. As a person conceived by terrible, unforgivable actions, I respect the show for diving headfirst into this for a kid’s show.
It’s a Good Recommendations kind of day!

This is the best thing on the internet.
I HAVE ONLY EVER SEEN THE SFM VERSION OF THIS WITH SPY FLJ:HDS IM DYING
Do you ever think about what genderbent you would look like
Alright, these are kinda adorable…
Much-MUCH better than sad, tortured, & unfortunate Wee Ones staring at the camera hopelessly. THIS might actually help THEM find homes too.
