Adventure Time quickly became a Cartoon Network hit thanks to its fun, quirky, and often optimistic world view. But as the show has grown over the seasons, things have definitely matured. The writers have introduced plenty of adult themes and a few strangely dark moments. Some of the darkest, violent Adventure Time scenes lie among the mathematical action sequences and sassy humor. And things cdo get dark. Really dark.
In a post-apocalyptic world filled with candy princesses, princess-stealing kings (complete with magical ice powers), screaming sociopathic lemon people, and rock n' roll vampires, the planet's last human, who just so happens to be a twelve-year-old boy, and his shape-shifting dog protect their kingdom against all sorts of evil-doers. Each eleven minute long episode of Adventure Time is filled with multicolored shenanigans and is jam-packed with rouge-like RPG innuendos.
Pendleton Ward's psychedelic creation has sparked a huge following and touches on intellectual subjects aimed at adults and kids alike. Although the show has been going strong since its Cartoon Network debut in 2010, Adventure Time's next season will be its last. Keep reading to see some of the best Adventure Time scenes, including some that get pretty dark pretty quickly.
