Adventure Time is an 11-minute animated series created by Pendleton Ward for Cartoon Network. Since its first airing in 2010, it has become a cult phenomenon, proving one of Cartoon Network's biggest successes in ratings and reviews. After the show's conclusion, a sequel series titled Adventure Time: Distant Lands started airing on HBO Max in 2020.

The series takes place in the post-apocalyptic Land of Ooo, where young Finn, the only human being in the land, and his shape-shifting dog named Jake go on adventures whenever they need to or feel like it, meeting friends and enemies along the way like candy princess Bubblegum, vampire queen Marceline and the misguided Ice King.
