Best animated shows: Need a refresher before Distant Lands? Time to rewatch the original series

This one might be a bit of a cheat, but Adventure Time is technically getting a new “season” or a set of spinoff stories. With the launch of HBO Max, fans are no doubt even more excited about the next chapter for Adventure Time. Adventure Time: Distant Lands is going to focus on four different storylines following our favorite characters from the original series.

If you’re a little bit behind on Adventure Time, there’s no better time than the present to get caught up. Adventure Time originally aired on Cartoon Network from 2010-2018. Once the series wrapped, everyone thought it would be the end. HBO announced with the launch of HBO Max, we’d get to be reunited with our favorite characters and thus, it’s important to get your rewatch of Adventure Time is now.

The series follows Finn, a human boy and his best friend, Jake the Dog as they have adventures in Ooo together. The series introduced a lot of memorable side characters and changed the game for animated shows.

The show discussed much more “intense” topics yet still remained funny and lighthearted. If you have Hulu, you can still watch the series on there but probably not for much longer.

Adventure Time is such a beloved series and even if you have watched it already, you’ll want to watch it again. It’s impossible to not find yourself in at least one of the characters or find someone to root for.

While it might be everyone’s cup of tea, it changed the game for a lot of animated shows and launched many careers. If there’s one show you should revisit this summer, it has to be Adventure Time.
