6/10

Characters kiss.

Some characters position themselves and speak sexily sometimes.

In the episode "What Is Life?" a brief scene shows the Ice King reading what appears to be a nudie magazine on his bed. There are also heavy undertones of procreation in this episode, including claims that the Ice King's lightning bolts made him the "father" of a robot they revived.

Jake explains to Finn the '15 Tiers' of a relationship and says something like "tier one is hugging, tier two is smooching, at tier 8 you get to touch her horn for the very first time" and Finn asks "what about tier 15?" and Jake gets mad and shouts "you stay away from there!". This is the most obvious sexual reference of the show.

In one episode, Finn's clothes are incinerated off of him (we see his butt for an extended time). A character comes over and tells him, "Hey naked kid".

We see Finn in his underwear in one episode (they were torn off and stolen by a girl. The scene is comedic, not sexual).

In one episode, Finn and two other people are naked with logs covering their crotch. The log moves up and down as the characters walks or move.

In one episode, Finn sees a female getting into a shower and gets flustered, however nothing is seen.

In the episode "Blood Under the Skin", Finn crosses the Swamp of Embarrassment, where there are a lot of curtains with a lot of people showering in them and with their parts covered (some offscreen). Finn is called a pervert and he repeats that he is not, and a man says "My most private parts seen by a boy!" and "my privates!", that are said twice in that episode. At the end he comes completely embarrassed and with a red face.

Finn had a crush on Bubblegum.

Finn tells Mrs. Cow to take the paper bag off her udder. A blue bird and Mrs. Cow take the paper bag off her udder, but it's actually revealed to be an udder with a face on it

Lady Rainicorn and Jake is set-up for "seven minutes in heaven" by Finn. He places them inside a closet.

On the gender-switched episode, Prince Gumball takes Fionna to his bedroom, which showed rose petals on the bed, and he was about to remove his shirt, but it was actually the Ice Queen taking off her cover and wanting to destroy her.

Ricardio the Heart Man threatens to cut out Bubblegum's heart and make out with it. He is also an implied rapist.

In the Tree Fort where Finn and Jake live, can be seen on a wall a ripped image of an apparently naked woman. However, according to a crew member of the show, it represents "a woman in a crappy snapped bikini".

In the episode "Gotcha!", the word "lumps" is used as euphemism for "breasts".

Overall, it has a lot of talk about relationships and some mild sexual innuendo.

7/10

Punches, kicks, and swordfights, but all very cartoonish. Sometimes there is blood and "red" cuts.

The opening has a decapitated arm inside a hollow tree. Very fast, can't be seen without pausing.

Finn kills a monster shaped as a heart, red blood sprouts all over. Very brief and the blood have not stained anything.

In a few episodes we see bruises and scratches, but no blood.

Some fights include decapitation of small parts (noses and hands), but no blood, only flesh wounds. Some monsters have discolored blood when killed.

Several fight scenes are played out for humor. For example, there is a character named "Ash", who everyone hates, since he is a douche. Marceline kicks his crotch and Finn starts beating him up with her. Finally Jake stomps him with his giant foot. Even the Ice King (Simon Petrikov) in one episode punches him with no good reason.

Finn and Jake start beating up each other, because they are proving themselves who is more resilient. Both of them have lots of nasty looking bruises, cuts and some blood.

The Magic man turns a bird inside out making it show the birds guts, flesh and everything else. He also turned Finn into a giant foot, used magic to sew some Martians hands together and turned the Martians drinking water into hair (which they drank!).

Visible green vomit in some episodes, when the characters are disgusted. Jake explicitly vomits into a Jacuzzi after hearing how his wish can destroy and kill many people.

A pale skinned, creepy looking woman in a TV eats her own hair. She gags a lot, and is all the time ready to vomit. Jake and Finn are absolutely disgusted. Must be a reference to shock sites!

Finn has a rash on his leg in one episode. Some kind of disgusting pink liquid/puss drips from it.

Skeletons are seen in some episodes also, walking skeleton get smashed. Some character practice necromancy.

In one episode Ice King stole parts of other princesses bodies and made a monster out of them. Princess Bubblegum got half her face torn-off to set an example!

A demon gets half his body torn off by a laser. All his insides show, and a lot of blood.

A demon starts vomiting bananas and another one gets his head turned into abdominal muscles!

When Hunson Abadeer (The lord of evil), appears from The Nightosphere (Hell), he reconstructs himself to the real world in a gory manner. All his organs, blood and skin stick together, and create him in a brief scene!

Castle Lemongrab has rooms filled with guts, a room with a giant heart and a room with a monster that peels it's skin off to reveal it's skull.

The Lich has skin peeling off his ancient, rotten flesh and what seems to be veins hanging from his arms. He looks very disturbing indeed, to the point of vomit inducing.

Finn presumably "kills" the Lich by shoving a sweater inside his (the Lich's) eye socket, and proceeds to pull through the other socket so that the sweater comes out between the sockets. And it does, breaking the Lich's skull.

The episode "The Enchiridion!" the original title card showed Finn in a dark place holding Jake down on a table with a dagger stabbing him, with a lot of blood and Jake's guts being showed in a very gory style and his eye socket completely mutilated, but Cartoon Network found that image too scary. Subsequently, three versions of the title card were made. The final title card had several changes to be less scary.

Goliad squashes an innocent bee.

A demon sucks up almost all of Jake's blood. The blood is shown. A sword is made out of a demon's blood.

The episode "Too Old" depict extremely graphic cannibalism, and on-screen murder.

In the episode titled "The Jiggler" a creature that Finn and Jake take home becomes violently ill and spews what appears to be blood or vomit out of many orifices of its body. In an effort to stop the leakage, Finn and Jake plug up the holes, only to have the creature expand and eventually burst. Jake and Finn are covered in twisted strands of the creature's body as Jake remarks "Our pet exploded".

Several instances of limb removal, mauling throughout the series (i.e. arms chopped off).

Some episodes have relatively hidden assassination and suicide plots.

3/10

The language is tame. Words such as "dude", "kill", "butt", "crud", "shut up", "jerk", "heck", "darn" can be heard, and "hot" and "sexy". In some earlier episodes, "crotch" is used. Also in the episode "Rainy Day Daydream", there is one use of "crap". Sometimes characters censor profanity by themselves, for example: "You son of a bleebloop!!!" In a few episodes, "son of a..." and "what the..." are said. Finn also makes a reference to male genitalia by saying, "Balzacs!". In one episode "tomboy" is used. A few episodes use "frickin" or "freaking".

In one episode a worm rises up behind a statues fist. It looks like the statue is giving the middle finger, and Treetrunks gets offended by it.

Sometimes euphemistic words are used. People speculates that there are strongest insults but in theory they're only misunderstandings about the pronunciation.

2/10

Nothing in particular. Ice King sees magical creatures and spirits with his "wizard eyes". Some references to smoking and drinking. Princess Bubblegum pours herself a glass of what appears to be alcohol in one episode.

6/10

Normally a cartoon that is not scary but at times Adventure Time can be very intense, propitiated by its detail-oriented animation style. The characters and their facial expressions, the backgrounds and the scenes can be creepy, specially to children.

A murder episode where a jelly filled bun is killed. A scene where Finn finds him is very disturbing, with the murdered guy smuttered all over the closet. He gets really shocked. But it was just an illusion.

Lemongrab eats Lemongrab 2 once and is next time seen with a chunk of his face bit off and he has no torso. Lemongrab 2 is eaten again and is seen again inside the stomach of Fat Lemongrab with a larger chunk of his face bit off.

The Nightosphere is essentially hell. The creator himself even referred to it as "one of the coolest depictions of Hell on TV."

Any episode involving The Lich can be intense.

The series contains some mature themes, such as suicide, rape, genocide and murder, relatively hidden. Also there are some mixed "messages" and some rude humor that may be confusing.

This is a kids show that appears on daytime TV in a lot of countries.

24/50

Suggested rating: TV-PG-DV generally.

Suggested age: 12+ for crude humor and suggestive references, mild language and themes, animated fantasy action/violence and gore, sometimes with blood, and some scary images.
