what is with the food chain how dose it fit all the other stuff i ooo
The main thing about food chain in general is mainly because of its guest animator and director: Masaaki Yuasa
Just a little about him. He made Cat soup and other animations like tatami galaxy, ping pong, and an episode on space dandy.
In terms of it fitting into the story line, we could consider it part of the magic man things because magic man had a part, but I think this episode was mainly for the animation itself.
Emily tackles the top 5 Adventure Time conspiracies! These theories range from Finn the human being in a real life coma, Jake is actually Finn’s father, and of course the great mushroom war! Find out which theories hold up on this week’s Cartoon Conspiracy!
We were noted in the description of a Cartoon Hangover video by the same name as our blog!
She does a really good job of explaining what works and what doesn’t regarding each of her “conspiracies,” all of which are popular theories but a bit more general then what we talk about here,
I'm not sure if this has been addressed, but we clearly saw that PB made Shoko a robot arm. Why did she never even attempt to make him one...? Did she want him to have to deal with it for maturity's sake?
We think she did do it for maturity’s sake. Finn shows how immature he is about the whole situation through most of the episodes where his arm is lost. Once he gets his arm back, we see no impact of what he went through emotionally losing his arm and dealing with his potential father.
The Ocarina episode was very surprising to me because we learned several new things about Ooo - not only that Jake is an absentee father (and why does Lady Rainicorn seem so unconcerned?), but also that Ooo has private property, money, and a legal structure. Since Jake and Finn went to a jail with Banana Guards, I suppose the Candy Kingdom enforces these laws?
Yeah. I feel like they’re far enough in candy kingdom territory that they have to abide by those laws. In, “Burning low,” Princess Bubblegum even takes tax from them.
So it seems like the creators are starting to break away from major story arcs to make sort of random episodes like they did before. Personally, i like that; your thoughts?
Both Jackie and I agree. Its nice to see character development to see the depth in each character and how big there world really is.
The newest episode, Ocarina, kind of paints Jake as a father who abandoned his children. I also think it really emphasizes that he is childish and sort of immature and that his children have surpassed him in terms of maturity. This all makes Jake seem less likable as a character. I'm not sure if this is even really a conspiracy, but do you think the purpose of this episode was to show that Jake's childish demeanor is kind of... frowned upon?
I feel like this episode, just more so shows Jake’s immaturity like you say, and at least with this episode, we get to see the consequences of Jake being an absent parent. He was with them for 6 hours or so then left again. It seems like he doesn’t visit them at all.
I personally thought that the idea of bringing back the ancient psychic tandem war elephant after, like 4 seasons or something was kind of a hasty "oh yeah!" moment with the writers, because they had forgotten about it and decided to use it again. What I'm wondering is, why would Finn suddenly think of the ancient psychic tandem war elephant at that particular moment, and not with the lich or when finding martin?? And how can he have left the candy kingdom quick enough to get the elephant??
Finn does live close enough to the candy kingdom that they could get there via Jake or some other means. In addition to this the aptwe(ancient physic tandem war elephant) is mentally linked to Finn so he might have been able to call the elephant to his side.
