Adventure Time

Cartoon pilot for all ages that blends sharp writing with stylistic characters into perhaps the coolest cartoon series in recent years.

Animated cartoons that strike a chord with audiences young and old are the gold that the Hollywood studios dream. Too bad most end up smothered by pop culture references and watered-down stereotypical characters in bland stories. Adventure Time is a cartoon that gets it right. It features interesting, smart characters that actually say smart things.
