The first series produced by Frederator Studios to not air on Nickelodeon. Pendleton Ward originally pitched it to the network twice after doing the pilot for them which aired on Random Cartoons, but was eventually rejected both times before Ward pitched the show to Cartoon Network and got greenlighted.

Some episodes have different versions of the opening theme. In the Fiona & Cake episodes, it is a gender swapped version of the regular intro with a woman singing the theme song. The episode A Glitch Is a Glitch, the opening is CG animated. In Food Chain, the opening has all the characters with Finn and Jake's faces and the theme song is sung by a different singer as well.

On Netflix, the last part of the episode Tree Trunks where Tree Trunks the elephant walking happily in the Crystal Dimension after exploding from eating the Crystal Apple is removed for unknown reasons. See more »
I very rarely find anything on TV or in film that makes me laugh as frequently and unexpectedly as this show. Adventure Time is a well needed breath of life into cartoons. What impresses me most is that the humour is very mature but unlike other shows of that nature, for example Ren & Stimpy, it's still completely for the children. That's where the magic lies. When watching you become a kid again, immersing you in the imagination all of us shared as a youngster.
The simple, but I think fantastic, hand drawn animation cements the feeling that this is no ordinary cartoon. It oozes with great characters and settings. Everything about Adventure Time shows all the love and care invested it by Pen Ward. I'd recommend this show to any cartoon lover and anyone who's still a kid at heart.
