Adventure Time is an awesome animated short by Pendleton Ward, who also has a site with some cartoons, animation, comics, and a blog.

I was flipping channels at my parent's place and chanced upon this. Seeing this playing on Nickelodeon without context seriously messed with my head. It's one of the few shows I've seen that shift from "ironic" to "unironic" over and over again.

Also, very good. Thanks!

With John Di Maggio doing the voice of the dog, I half expected it to toss back a brew or dry-hump the rainbow horse.

I like the way he waves his arms as he runs.

Holy crap, that was indescribably awesome. What a fantastic cartoon. Thank you thank you thank you thank you. This guy kicks ass, Frederator kicks ass (we all knew that), and Nick kicks ass too. Adventure Time: The Animated Series can't come soon enough.

I'm going to go watch that 5 more times now.

I've really watched this twelve times.

It might sound like I don't have anything better to do, and that's right, but it's because there is nothing better to do.

Normally when I see a "check out this great animated short!" post, I don't bother, and when I do, I often don't make it past a minute or so.

This was so good I didn't want it to end. Five stars! No, really.

Back for another round it seems...

Yup...

TO THE MAX!

You know, after watching this probably 15 times over the past 12 hours, I've decided that out of all the incredibly wonderful things within it, the very best thing about the entire cartoon is that the Ice King has a drum set in his cave.

Pendelton Ward is a genius.

Yeah, I was disappointed at first when nobody played the drums (I expected the dog to come in and lay down a hard break), but on reflection, that little detail was so cute.

This is the greatest thing I've seen all week. I especially like how Pendleton Ward (in the second link) scolds the internet for thinking drugs were involved.

Are they hugging the penguins, or playing them like guitars?
