Release Date:July 10,2012
I'm ashamed to admit that I had never watched Adventure Time before being sent the first season DVD set. I am happy to admit that the DVR is now set so I don't miss another awesome episode of this crazy, yet heart-warming, post-apocalyptic, somewhat family friendly, hilarious adventure series (that is unless Directv gets in a dispute and takes away Cartoon Network as well!). Any cartoon that starts out with an episode about zombies that is basically a take on Night of The Living Dead is alright in my books.
While the DVD set could use more special features and the what seems like obligatory commentary tracks don't shed that much light into what it takes to make the series (although they do get a bit silly and off-topic - which is fun), the special features aren't the main reason to buy this set - getting the complete first season is. Pick it up today -you won't be disappointed (and if your a Directv customer - maybe you will have just found something to tide you over until the powers that be deem us worthy to receive Spongebob again)!
What time is it? It's time for Adventure Time: The Complete First Season DVD. The Cartoon Network's #1 hit comedy show and Emmy nominated series that centers on the post apocalyptic adventures of Finn, a human boy with a funny hat, and his friend Jake.
HECK YEAH!!! At long last, the wait is over as Cartoon Network has announced the DVD release of the entire first season of its Emmy®-nominated animated comedy series Adventure Time! Yep, that’s all 26 episodes from the show’s first season, plus heaps of bonus features created by Pendleton Ward and the show team, including featurettes, episode commentaries, animatics and more packed into a sweet DVD package. It's a must-have for the series’ ravenous fans, who can relive all of the original adventures of best buddies Finn and Jake in the magical land of Ooo.
The highly-anticipated bonus materials in the Adventure Time: The Complete First Season DVD release include: behind the scene featurettes of the crew, the composers and more filmed by creator Pendleton Ward with his very own camera phone; animatics featuring commentary by Ward, Adam Muto, Pat McHale and Derek Drymon for the “Rainy Day Daydream,” “Slumber Party Panic,” “Dungeon” and “The Enchiridion!” episodes; and episode commentary from cast members and special guests including: “Prisoners of Love” with John DiMaggio, Jeremy Shada, Tom Kenny and Ward; “Ricardio the Heart Guy” with George Takei, Hynden Walch, Kenny, Shada and Ward; “Tree Trunks” with Bettie Ward and Polly Lou Livingston; and “Trouble in Lumpy Space” with DiMaggio, Shada, Kenny and Ward.
