  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Adventure Time (aka Adventure Time with Finn and Jake) started as a seven-minute short created by Pendleton Ward. Originally produced to be a part of "Random! Cartoons" on Nickelodeon, it was meant to premiere in Fall of 2007. The animated variety show was delayed until December 2008, but the short was previewed in 2006. As is the way of things, the previewed short was leaked unto the Internet and quickly went viral.

Why? Because it's really frickin' weird, that's why.

Both the series and original short features the adventures of two best friends: Jake the Dog and Finn the Human. Their adventures are nonsensical, crazy, and bear more resemblance to a group of kids playing with action figures than a coherent story... which is probably why it's so much dang fun. Nickelodeon passed on making it into a series, but Nickelodeon's rival Cartoon Network saw the potential in this and ordered two full seasons before the show even aired. It started airing on the television screen on April 5, 2010 to the delight of 2 million viewers. As of now the show is currently in its fourth season and writing for the fifth has already begun, and life is good. A comic book adaptation written by Ryan North is published by Boom Studios.

Did we mention the creator also storyboarded on The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack? You can actually see his unique "oomph" in the episodes he storyboards, where there are jointless limbs, cute/scary faces and figures, and a very loose style compared to the other artists. The creator of Flapjack is in turn a writer and producer on Adventure Time, and even voiced a wood witch.

The mathematical production blog, which also features art from fans, is located here.
