Hot Off The Presses Funny
Cartoon Network’s Emmy and Peabody Award-winning Adventure Time returns this January with Adventure Time: Islands, an eight-part journey into Finn the Human’s mysterious past beginning Monday, Jan. 30 and concluding Thursday, Feb. 2 at 7:30 p.m. (ET, PT) on Cartoon Network. The four-night special event will answer one of the series’ most-asked questions: What happened to the humans?
My 10 year old son is a huge, HUGE fan of Adventure Time. And if I’m being completely honest I will admit to you that I’ve been known to watch an episode or two with him. Adventure Time is surprisingly funny and witty and I love that. Now that we’re aiming to start travelling more as a family, we’re in desperate need of DVD’s that’ll entertain the kids in the long car rides. Adventure Time: Islands came just in time! We received a review copy, all opinions are our own.
Get It First!
Adventure Time: Islands may be coming to Cartoon Network on Monday, January 30th but you can see Adventure Time: Islands on DVD, iTunes, Amazon Video and Google Play ahead of its TV premiere. All eight episodes plus exclusive new content including animatics, an art gallery and song demos will be available on Tuesday, Jan. 24 for the suggested retail price of $14.97.
In Adventure Time: Islands, Finn (voiced by Jeremy Shada), Jake (John DiMaggio), BMO (Niki Yang) and Susan Strong (Jackie Buscarino) leave the Land of Ooo to embark on a quest of epic proportions across the ocean and into new lands—encountering new creatures, discovering new islands and using teamwork along the way.
Adventure Time: Islands comes on the heels of Adventure Time: Stakes, the series’ first eight-part miniseries following Marceline the Vampire Queen. Stakes debuted on Cartoon Network in November 2015 to phenomenal success, ranking as the #1 program in its time period with all key kids and boys audiences. Adventure Time storyboard artist Tom Herpich was also awarded an Emmy in 2016 for Stakes’ conclusion, “The Dark Cloud.”
My son is the happiest 10 year old I know thanks to Adventure Time: Islands!
