what the fuck is wrong with this show
This scene right here is why I got into Adventure Time. This scene was INCREDIBLY dark, twisted, and disturbing AT FACE VALUE. It gets SO MUCH WORSE when you stop to think about it.
Finn is there because he’s tired of being called a child. He wants to grow up. He wants to be a MAN. And here come beautiful women, telling him to partake of their fruit. And Finn is going to do it, because Jake told him not too and Finn is being rebellious and decided since Jake said not to he was going to be an adult and do it anyway. So Finn starts to take this fruit to show he’s not a child anymore.
And the fruit turns out to be a terrible curse, an awful thing. The one that ate the fruit was eaten alive by the other monsters (And gifs can’t do that scene justice, if I remember it right when they start tearing the skin off the apple there are tearing sounds and the ‘apple’ starts to cry or scream and the fleshy insides quiver around the bones as its torn apart and devoured.)
And I realized they just couched a lesson about kids having sex too early to try to grow up, in ways no kid is ever going to understand, in the confines of a fantasy-setting cartoon show, on Cartoon Network.
And I’ve been hooked on this show ever since.
