Adventure Time

Jake and Finn of Adventure Time are this generation’s Calvin and Hobbes, mixed with a less grotesque Ren & Stimpy and a more adult Spongebob Squarepants.

I was skeptical of the show at first, ready to dismiss it as a crass, kiddie-sized version of South Park. But this show has merit. It’s got spunk, creativity, morals, comedy: all good things for today’s kids and adolescents (and adults) to see.

It’s a playground for creativity to run wild, chase dragon-tailed butterflies, and blow stinky green bubbles all over the traditional TV landscape. Sometimes it’s just nice to sink in to 11 minutes of play.
