Welcome to my first ever guest post! This one is from Laura from Blue Banana.
Adventure Time is one of the most popular cartoons in the world right now, all thanks to its surreal themes, witty humour and layered story that appeals to more than just kids, but also to teens and young adults who appreciate alternative and original style. Part of why people love the show so much is the gorgeous art and animation that leads to all sorts of adorable creations.
The World Of Ooo is full of all sorts of cute little critters, so here are the best cuties that have appeared across all five seasons of the cartoon – that’s over one-hundred episodes! Some only popped up once, but that was enough to endear them to our hearts right away. Algebraic!
Shelby is a pink worm that lives in Jake’s viola. He’s only made a few cameo appearances but every moment he does is memorable because of his sarcasm. The little guy has a sharp tongue and speaks as if everything is always lame. He’s pretty cute, but not as cute as the others on this list.
Me-Mow is a very tiny little kitten dressed like a Mummy, but despite her cute looks she’s actually a deadly assassin. In ‘Jake vs Me-Mow’ she’s tasked with assassinating Wildberry Princess and threatens Jake with poison to do her dirty work. This episode was one of the funniest in the show and Me-Mow is one of the most adorably evil little characters imaginable.
Flambo is a recurring character in the series and friends with Finn and Jake. He’s a mischievous little fire demon able to cast magic that allows mortals to enter the fire kingdom. Although he has a fiery little temperament and talks like a sneaky gangster, there’s no getting away from how cute the little guy is.
7. Wildberry Princess
Of all the Princesses in Ooo, Wildberry Princess is one of the most adorable in personality and looks. She’s basically a little living raspberry, has a timid nature (probably helped in no part by her continuous capture by the Ice King) and has a squeaky little voice. Kawaii!
6. Little Dude
Little Dude is the name given to Finn’s famous hat when it comes to life thanks to the Ancient Sleeping Magi of Life Giving. Gaining a cute little face and four legs, Little Dude makes a great mischievous companion at first but turns out to be evil and more trouble than he’s worth. But, despite the evilness, just look at his little face!
Gunter is the Ice King’s most faithful penguin servant and is usually a source of mischief and trouble for him too. The Ice King loves Gunter like a father, whom he refers to as ‘sweetie’. Gunter also happens to be one of the most evil beings on Ooo, despite making non-threatening quacks. It’s his/her naughtiness and source of frustration for the Ice King that makes Gunter so loveable though.
4. The Jiggler
Appearing in one of the show’s earliest episodes, The Jiggler is a cute little being that was adopted by Finn and Jake. The Jiggler was named after the two adventurers discovered it loved to dance to Finn’s singing, waving around those wiry little arms and whistling. Unfortunately, the Jiggler got sick because it was really a baby separated from its mother, but Finn and Jake returned it home where it was restored to its lively self.
3. The Cute King and the Cuties
The Cute King and his army of Cuties appeared in the episode ‘Conquest Of Cuteness’. The Cuties are a tiny race of mushroom headed beings that are rainbow coloured and believe themselves to be a fearsome and evil army despite their cute looks. The King and his army try to attack Finn and Jake but are completely hopeless as they are too weak. Eventually the King surrenders but comes to the realisation that it’s easier to use their cuteness to manipulate victims than to fight.
The Snail is the only character that appears in every single episode of the show without fail and has become a firm fan favourite. The little Snail is a running gag and at least once in every episode he appears in shot doing a cute wave at the audience, breaking the fourth wall. Half the fun of every episode is finding him and it’s always exciting to see where he’s hidden each time.
“Who wants to play video games!”
BMO is most definitely the cutest character in the show and with each passing season he/she gets even more adorable. The little happy-faced computer plays games with Finn and Jake and even gets up to imaginary games when they’re out of the house. BMO’s character has grown over the seasons from purely a games console to an integral part of the cartoon. With Korean accent and little Gameboy console appearance, everything about BMO is loveable and every cameo in the show, whether big or small, is all the brighter for BMO’s presence.
These are just a few examples of the sweet creations that inhabit the land of Ooo in Adventure Time – when you watch the show you realise that actually pretty much all characters are cute in some way due to the artistic style. So what the glob are you waiting for? Start watching Adventure Time and all their wonderful characters!
