Did You Know?


The dress Fionna wears to Gumball's party bears a very striking resemblance to Princess Serenity's dress in the Sailor Moon anime. It should also be noted that Fionna wears rabbit ears and has a feline companion.... In Sailor Moon, Princess Serenity is reincarnated as Usagi (Japanese for Rabbit) a girl with a talking feline named Luna. See more »


Fionna: What? Hey, is this your bedroom?
Prince Gumball: Fionna...
[starts to take his shirt off]
Fionna: Heh, woah...
[Water drips onto her shoulder. Fionna looks up and sees the real Gumball frozen to the ceiling]
Fionna: WHAT?
[the fake Gumball laughs evilly, eventually turning into the Ice Queen]
Ice Queen: This was so much easier than I thought it would be!
[attacks Fionna]

I actually liked the ending of this episode
8 April 2012 | by (Peru) – See all my reviews

I know that the major criticism made about this episode was mostly concerned with the resolution of it. However, I think that the ending was something pretty funny and clever, and in many ways, it is a brilliant resolution if you take in consideration most of the events that take place in this episode.

Not only the characters are different, the overall mood is somewhat changed in relationship with the rest of the series being far more romantic and mostly humorless. And that's why the ending worked so well: If it feels as something unrelated with the rest of the series, it is because it is indeed something unrelated. A story within a story, where the typical events from more common episodes are seen from a different perspective, and not only for the whole gender-belt thing, but also for the way in which it is developed.

In that way, the resolution which at first seems some kind of lazy "It was all a dream" scenario turns into something brilliant and convincing.
