We gave it an A

(Cartoon Network) In this animated TV series like none other, we follow the adventures of Finn, a 14 year old human boy, and his best friend Jake, a dog with magical powers to change shape and grow and shrink at will. Finn and Jake live in the post-apocalyptic Land of Ooo. Think of everything you loved when you were a kid: candy, swords, noble heroes, beautiful princesses, costumes, dogs, sleepovers, hanging out with your best friend, pranks, magic, whatever. Now think of everything you were scared of when you were a kid: vampires, aliens, skeletons, the ocean, darkness, girls, boys, minotaurs, whatever. Adventure Time is all that and more. The story of a kid and his magic stretching dog, the show is simultaneously silly and scary, endearingly naive and deeply cynical.
