Want to know what time it is!? It’s Blu-Ray watching time with Finn and Jake – two of the coolest heroes to ever hero-ize! They’re traveling across the Land of Ooo searching for adventure, but adventure isn’t always easy. Sometimes you’ve got to battle mean little Fire Gnomes, Frozen Businessmen Zombies, and the very, very, very evil Ice King. What the Cabbage?! It sure is a lot of battling for just the first season.

Created by Pendleton Ward, Adventure Time follows the adventures of Finn (voiced by Jeremy Shada), a human boy, and his best friend and adoptive brother Jake (voiced by John DiMaggio), a 28-year-old dog with magical powers.

Finn and Jake live in the post-apocalyptic Land of Ooo. On their adventures, they interact with a wild assortment of colorful characters: Princess Bubblegum (voiced by Hynden Walch), The Ice King (voiced by Tom Kenny), and Marceline the Vampire Queen (voiced by Olivia Olson). Oh, did I mention Jake’s girlfriend is Princess Rainicorn, a Korean speaking Rainbow Unicorn fitted with a translator stuck on “old man” setting?

The first season of Cartoon Network’s Emmy-nominated series is comprised of 26 11-minute episodes, following Finn and Jake as they do battle with the Ice King and rescue the Land of Ooo’s various princesses from all matter of strange creatures. Adventure Time is one of the weirdest, silliest, and most imaginative cartoons I’ve ever seen; a candy-coated homage to questing adventures and heroic journeys reminiscent of Dungeons & Dragons and old-school video games like The Legend of Zelda.

The Season One Blu-ray includes all 26 episodes, four commentaries, and a bunch of special features. The first season also comes packaged with a collectible slipcover of Finn and is a must-have for any Adventure Time fan. The music, the animation, the voice acting; everything is top-notch in Pendleton Ward’s eye-popping cartoon series.

Bonus Materials:

* Audio Commentaries with Cast and Crew
* Finndemonium: Fans Cosplaying as Finn at San Diego Comic-Con

Adventure Time Season Two
Blu-Ray | DVD
Created By: Pendleton Ward
Creative Directors: Patrick McHale, Cole Sanchez, Adam Muto, Nate Cash
Voice Cast: Jeremy Shada, John DiMaggio, Hynden Walch, Niki Yang, Tom Kenny, Olivia Olson, Martin Olson, Polly Lou Livingston, Jessica DiCicco
Frederator Studios | Cartoon Network Studios
Rated TV-PG | 286 Minutes (26 Episodes)
Release Date: June 4, 2013

That Ice King sure is cold, but as cold as Marceline’s fries? He’s pretty evil too, but as evil as the Lich? And Ice King does have powers, but as powerful as Susan Strong?!? Season two in Ooo introduces a world of new characters and adventures. Some chiller than Ice King, others as warm and fuzzy as Finn and Jake, but no one as handsome as Ice King without his beard! Ooh-La-La!

Season Two of Adventure Time continues the adventures of Finn and Jake as they set out into the Land of Ooo in search fun and excitement. This time around we’re introduced to The Lich – the series’ primary antagonist – who is voiced by Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Sons of Anarchy).

Additional stars lend their voices to characters in season 2, further expanding the already rich, colorful world of Adventure Time. Rapper Biz Markie guest stars as Snorlock while Paul Reubens – Pee-Wee Herman – appears as the Gnome Ruler. Henry Rollins and Laura Silverman even show up as as Lady Rainicorn’s parents! SNL alum and Lonely Island frontman Andy Samberg voices Party Pat, a hipster bear who has a party cave.

The Season Two Blu-ray includes all 26 episodes, 26 commentaries, and an interview with the crew of Adventure Time led by creator Pendleton Ward. The first season also comes packaged with a collectible slipcover of the Ice King and is a no-brainer for any who loves incredible looking animation that is both heartfelt and exceedingly silly.

I would highly recommend picking up these two Blu-Ray sets and indulging in the multicolored weirdness and imaginative storytelling of Ward’s sophisticated yet silly animated series. My favorite thing about the series is that it doesn’t shy away from scary stuff – episodes are filled with vampires, reanimated corpses, and all matter of monsters. Check out the clip below, from Season One, Episode One: Slumber Party Panic where Finn & Jake trick the citizens of Ooo into smashing Piñatas that are actually ZOMBIES! Pretty sweet, right?

Bonus Materials:

* 26 Audio Commentaries
* The Crew of Adventure Time, Interviewed by Creator Pendleton Ward
