This show is the darkest kid's show I've ever seen. It's only getting progressively bleaker as it goes on.

I'm loving the whole post-apocalyptic gradual reveal they are doing.

Also, the Lovecraftian vibe of this episode.

Then they tacked on an ending to make this count as the Christmas episode.

I couldn't think of a better way to honor the holiday.

Is it really for kids? The only people I know who watch this are adults.

Pillager
My nephews love this show.

I love this show

fluffy
Actual kids like a completely different subset of episodes than the majority of the (adult) fanbase.

Man that would have put me through the ringer when I was little.

But then again, who knows what kind of damage Ren and Stimpy did.

Concerning the post-apocalyptic stuff, here's my pet theory about Finn's family.

During the Mushroom War, Finn's father foresaw the death of the human race and secretly put his baby son in a cryogenic chamber, so that some day, in the far future, humanity would have a chance at one last hurrah. As he took one last look at his son, he made the funny face that always made the child laugh. A face that would be honored and remembered by the world forevermore.

His name was Phil.

Adventure Time = Kamandi - Kirby

Sorry. theory broken. Phil shows up in that episode.

Also Finn meets his actual dad much later. His dad is a shithead and Finn decides he doesn't actually care about his background so much if it means trying to talk to his dad.

Pillager
Great, great stuff.

He's watched everyone he knows die, probably in a nuclear war, possibly from the the crown freezing wherever he lived into an uninhabitable wasteland in order to protect him. As the world ended he was sinking ever deeper into madness. The only vestige of who he was in an obsession that has driven him to spend a thousand years desperately trying to regain a love he no longer remembers or even understands.

MERRY CHRISTMAS KIDS!

Sacred heart as one of the supernatural ancient icons.

This is all Betty's fault.

The ice king didn't need a stupid tragic backstory

Nobody does, my friend.

Nobody does.

He kinda already did.

They have always gone out of thier way to make him a pathetically lonely loser, rather than truly evil. Basically his is poeTV in cartoon form.

Bort
They've gone from "lonely guy who is the cause of all his problems" to "decent guy who fell victim to an ancient curse that he did nothing to deserve". That's not the direction I would have chosen, but apparently nobody asked me.

He's a pretty spot-on parody of the Lich King from Warcraft, actually.

"OH GOD WHY AM I SO ALONE HERE IN MY FORTRESS OF ICE AND ZOMBIES?!!!"

Beemo has a VCR in his butt. Bet the tapes come back out smelling funny.

Yeah, the Ice King is pretty fucked-up.

I think this series owes Harlan Ellison money.
Aelric
I would actually email something his way for no other reason than because the frivolous lawsuit would yield some sort of animated 'I Have No Mouth' appearance on the show.

Squeamish
Well, damn. This cartoon got all kinds of bleak on me, and I like it.
