They’ll Never Be Another Cartoon Like... Adventure Time
With the end of Adventure Time: “Distant Lands” and waiting for the next mini-series, “Fiona and Cake”, it has comes to an realization that they’ll never be another cartoon series like Adventure Time. While many people will say that there already is like Steven Universe, Gravity Falls, Amphibia, The Owl House, and other shows that came out in the 2010s, but there’s something about Adventure Time hits differently that many of those shows don’t.
1) Growing Up
Adventure Time has been going since 2010 and could’ve easily become been like Simpsons and Spongebob for overstaying their welcome and gotten stale, but instead the show decided to grow, taken risk and having their characters to develop as the series went on and looking at Adventure Time Distant Lands, specifally “Obsidian” and “Together Again”, it’s clear to me it has.
Look at Finn Merten, he started out as immature adventurous boy
But in later seasons, he went through a lot such as
Losing his arm
Seeing himself die in front of him
In those experience, it allowed him to mature to be more passive than aggresive
Then in “Obsidan”, He’s more calm and chill
But what truly made me realize this is in “Together Again”, they showed Finn and Jake, who are the protagonists of Adventure Time, dead and there’s no ressurection, they stayed dead. It’s something that you don’t see in everday cartoon, most cartoons will show the protagonist older and what they’ve been doing the future, but for Adventure Time, they died.
It just shows that Adventure Time can grow, even when characters finally pass on.
2) The Land of Ooo
What the show truly sells is it out lore and how much it offers. While it takes place post apocalyptic Earth, the worldbuilding is expansive and the lore can’t even compare to Avatar: The Last Airbender, but more to One Piece. There so much that the show has explored such as
The society of humans
and so much more
What I truly love about the series that there’s still so much to explore, espeically finding out there’s more than the Land of Ooo such as planets, and the multiverse.
3) The Many Characters of Ooo
There are so many colourful characters in the show that are quite memorable, even characters that appeared in one episode. They are even given more depth and development that I didn’t expect to see.
Cookie wanted to be a princess
Air helping BMO finding her way home
The unexpected friendship between a Snow Golem and a Fire Wolf Pup
Dirt Beer Guy (Root Beer Guy) and Cherry Cream Soda never dated before they married, so they decided to actually date and see what an actual relationship is
and there’s Cinnemon Bun that got a massive amount of development that actually from a goof in the Candy Kingdom to a royal guard for the Fire Kingdom
And there’s the character relationships that dear glob it’s amazing. Seeing characters that you don’t normally see interacting is amazing like
Ice King and Marceline, two secondary characters and creating an entire backstory that’s tragic tale.
It was clever how the writers did by showing a glimpse to their past in season 3 such as
“Holly Jolly Secrets”
and “Memory of a Memory”
Having a father and daughter relationship. It was very heartwarming to Simon has gain his sanity and visits Marceline and her bubblegum girlfriend from time to time.
4) Philosphical Messages
While there are many cartoon shows have philosphical moments like Steven Unvierse and The Owl House, Adventure Time has gone a bit deeper, making me believe that this show was than just a kid/teen show, espeically getting older.
BMO wonders if he grows up, will he remain the same or different. Will it change his body or change his soul.
Finn questions if being borin is the greatest act of creation, what you supposed to do next and what’s the point making an effort if we “blow up”.
Marceline thinks that there’s no bad people. Good people can sometimes do bad stuff and that’s bad, but if you do it once, it’s a mistake and that’s not bad
Adventure Time can really make you wonder about life.
In conclusion, Adventure Time is one of those shows that can’t be mimic for it’s heavy lore, growth in the show and characters, deep messages, and the many colourful cast of characters. Adventure Time could’ve overstayed it’s welcome and can get boring like Simpsons and Spongebob, but it mange to stay fresh with ideas and take risk and that what makes Adventure Time enjoyable.

hi so old if you’ve been asked this before and sorry if you’re not really focused on Nico rn but ! i was wondering if you had any thoughts on his dynamics with other characters like Simon, marceline, pb, flame princess, anyone really!! i am very fond of nico but i gotta admit i’ve had a hard time grasping his personality in full, and i think a good way to understand people (or characters in this case) is how they interact with others and themselves. also i’m just curious lol
hope you’re having a good day/night/time btw!!
yknow, when it comes to OCs, I have a lot harder time grasping their personality from the beginning, and it kind of unveils itself to me the more I write them.
I would say Nico is a quiet person, but not a shy person. He might come off as a little standoffish or intimidating to new people. But, much like regular cats, he enjoys spending time with people even if it's just in silence, or if he's mostly just listening (he's a good listener). People warm up to him pretty quickly.
Nico is also funny! Since he's not especially talkative, people expect him to be more serious or straightforward, but he's quite a goofball.

The Future for Adventure Time Cast
In Adventure Time: Distant Lands “Together Again”, it was revealed that it takes place many years into the future and most of the cast of characters have died such as Tree Trunks, Tiffany, Mr. Fox, Mr. Pig, Choose Goose, Jermaine, candy citizens and many more, but how about the other cast that are still alive? What are they doing now? So let’s explore on what each character are doing now.
1) Finn and Jake
Although Finn and Jake have died, but by the end of “Together Again”, they get reincarnated together and most likely to Sheremy and Beth from the first couple of minutes and last minutes of “Come Along With Me”
2) Peppermint Butler
Peppermint Butler has been promoted from Princess Bubblegum loyal servent to a Princess. He redesign the Candy Kingdom to be more mystic
He or one of his subjects has made a statue of Princess Bubblegum as an memorial. He still does his black magic from time to time
3) Princess Bubblegum
Many people think she’s passed away due to her statue
However it’s not the case for she is “immortal”. She likely resign as princess after the events of “Obsidian” and gave the crown to her trustworthy butler, spending the rest of her life with her vampire girlfriend/wife, Marceline
As his friends, Finn and Jake passed away, she became the new King of Ooo, living at top of Mount of Cragdor, surrounded of mementos of his friends as her treasures
Since Marcy is an immortal, she’ll live longer than her friends. As of now, she’s spending her immortal life with her bubblegum girlfriend/wife, Bonnibel Bubblegum
6) The Elementals
Aside Bubblegum and Patience St. Pim, Flame Princess, Lumpy Space Princess, and Slime Princess will die and get reincarnated.
After saving his people from the tyranny of Lemongrab, he travel the world ‘till 1000 years later, he returns to his home and slept, feeling satisfied of his freedom,
8) Simon Petrikov/Ice King
Finally, the most interesting character, Simon Petrikov/Ice King. In “Obsidian”, it is revealed that he hasn’t aged at all, making uncertain if he’s immortal or not. While not explained, he likely still looking for Betty in the multiverse as he was asking Prismo of her whereabouts in the “Come Along With Me” montage.
This is so far of what Adventure Time had explained for the fate of it’s characters and what they have been doing for the last 500+ years. Hopefully, they’ll be another season of Distant Lands for characters that didn’t get fleshed outt, or potential spinoff about the future.
