New Adventure Time on Cartoon Network


Cartoon Network has announced that the third season of their pop culture sensation Adventure Time started airing on South African television screens on Monday 4 June. Adventure Time follows two unlikely heroes: Finn, a silly kid with an awesome hat and Jake, a brassy dog with a big heart.

South Africans are able to join Finn and Jake on their adventures every Monday to Friday at 5.40pm with repeats Saturday and Sunday from 8:05am on DStv channel 301. The new episodes will air until Wednesday 20 June.

These two buddies, Finn and Jake, traverse the mystical Land of Ooo and encounter its colourful inhabitants. From the mind of creator Pendleton Ward, Ooo is a land built for adventure. Teeming with imposing mountains, lush green plains, accessible forests, ubiquitous prairies and winding rivers, the cities and towns are filled with bizarre characters in need of unique assistance. Whether it’s saving Princess Bubblegum, defeating zombie candy, mocking the “oxy-moronic’ Ice King or rocking out with undead music wiz Marceline the Vampire Queen, for Finn & Jake it’s always Adventure Time.

The style of humor within Adventure Time has the power to attract different generations although it is aimed primarily at the youth.  The show is young at heart, it is silly in a way that kids can be and there’s a level of over-the-head adult kind of humour.  Finn and Jake have a lot of made-up slang words like “mathematical’ and “rhombus’ that all ages can snicker at the absurdness of.

Adventure Time is produced by the Cartoon Network Studios in partnership with Frederator Studios. The premiere season also features celebrity voices including Henry Rollins, Mark Hamill, George Takei, Lou Ferrigno and Erik Estrada. The show has already had successful ratings in the US with plots that have a strong moral undertone and characters that kids can care about.

Adventure Time is also currently a phenomenon among kids on the web with a Facebook page that has nearly 3 million fans around the globe and a very exciting game interface on where fans can find info and games relating to the popular show.
