List Rules Vote up the jokes that went right over your head in 'Adventure Time.'

Adventure Time is a bright and colorful cartoon that's a captivating thrill-ride for anyone who joins Finn and Jake on their Candy Kingdom quests. It's also got some pretty dirty jokes for a kids' cartoon. While the characters the two protagonists encounter on their journeys might seem charming and innocent enough, the adult jokes in Adventure Time will sneak up on you and make you think twice about how much of a children's show it really is. Filled to the brim with both silly antics and grown-up humor, Adventure Time is a cartoon that provides fun for the whole family, not just the little ones.

Dirty jokes in cartoons are typically pretty low-key, since they need to fly over the heads of their younger audiences, so some of the Adventure Time adult jokes are pretty easy to miss. But just because a little kid can't appreciate the adult humor in Adventure Time, doesn't mean that you can't!
