Now, I am not a huge fan of Adventure Time, but plenty of people in my life are. So I grabbed up a copy for review when I could.

The big selling point of this DVD is the hat that comes with it. It’s fantastic for anyone who is a fan of the series, but it’s definitely more of a child’s size than hat of an adult. I passed the hat off to a friend because I am not a hat person. She has a smaller head so it fit like a beanie, but the fleecy hat won’t fit everyone. You could even use it as part of your Halloween costume.  I loved how the hat was inserted into the plastic so that Jake’s face on the hat becomes part of the picture.

However, it would be nice if this was a full season. It’s weird how the episodes aren’t all included. You get 16 episodes from the fifth season of the show. If you’re not familiar with these releases, this might be confusing. ?Right now, you can get your hands The episode list is as follows:

  1. Jake The Dad
  2. Burning Low
  3. Gotcha!
  4. Sons of Mars
  5. BMO Noire
  6. The Hard Easy
  7. I Remember You
  8. All the Little People
  9. Mystery Dungeon
  10. All Your Fault
  11. Five More Short Graybles
  12. Vault of Bones
  13. Simon & Marcy
  14. Puhoy
  15. One Last Job
  16. BMO Lost

The first episode is actually the sixth in the fifth season, so you can see how it gets confusing. In the beginning episode, Jake the Dad, Jake has moved in with Lady Raincorn and their children. He has to learn how to be a dad. The episodes that follow don’t necessarily follow the overall story arc. You can pretty much tune into any of the episodes and enjoy it.  This makes it an easy watch, and the episodes are only “30” minutes long, so it doesn’t take much to watch.

I particularly liked The Hard Easy, which was cute but silly. There’s a lot of fantasy elements, and I sometimes find Adventure Time isn’t the type of show that I’m in the mood for, and I don’t love the antics of Jake and Finn. If you’re already a fan, it costs less than $20 on Amazon; otherwise, I’d check out the episodes on TV or at a friend’s house before investing in any of the DVDs.

For parents who are curious whether this might be a good gift for a child, not all episodes are family-friendly. The DVD itself is not yet rated, so I’d advise parental discretion when it comes to any Adventure Time DVD.
