I just discovered Adventure Time. I know, I’m a bad nerd. The important thing, though, is that I did discovered it.
I’ve watched two episodes now (or is it four, as there seems to be two episodes per half hour). The first episode I saw featured the Party Bears, which was awesome in its own right.
In "Belly of the Beast," they make a new "party cave" inside the stomach of a Giant under the leadership of their chief Party Pat, not realizing where they were or the danger they were in. Though they weren’t in immediate danger of being digested by the Giant, they were hurting it with the fireworks they fired off in its stomach. The pained Giant tried more and more extreme means of stopping the pain, going so far as to drink molten lava to drive the bears out. Finn and Jake were forced to go in and try to stop the partying. Finally, after being lead out of the Giant’s digestive tract, the bears and the Giant made amends under the condition of using red laser pointers for partying instead of fireworks. The bears are known to make their own beverage, honey energy drink.

After that episode, I’d have said my favorite character was Party Pat. The dude cracked me up.
After last night’s episode I have a favorite character: Marceline (the Vampire Queen (full name: Marceline Abadeer) is one of the main characters in Adventure Time and a vampire that is over a millennium old). I loved the story of her history with the Ice King and . But what I really dug was this song they sang together in an older episode. Check out some of the lyrics and video below. That first line is great.
Marceline, is it just you and me in the wreckage of the world?
That must be so confusing for a little girl.
And I know you’re going to need me here with you.
But I’m losing myself, and I’m afraid you’re going to lose me too.
This magic keeps me alive, but it’s making me crazy.
And I need to save you. But who’s going to save me?
Please forgive me for whatever I do, when I don’t remember you
