Finn vs. Death

So Cartoon Network's Adventure Time is my new favorite show, and has been for a few months now. I DVR it so my son and I can watch it every night. In the latest episode ("Death in Bloom"), the main characters go to the land of the dead, and Finn must face Death in a musical competition a la "The Devil Went Down to Georgia". You ought to check it out:


  1. I've never watched it before, but that clip alone has made me decide to go check it out now.

  2. Awesome. My favorite episodes are this one ("Death in Bloom"), "His Hero", "Slow Love", and "Dungeon". But none of them have failed to entertain me.

    "His Hero" has the main characters (who are monster-fighting heros in their own right) meeting their hero, Billy. There's a song explaining how awesome Billy is (the word "awesome" is used), including that he slayed an evil ocean and cast the Lich King down. But he's jaded about fighting monsters, and convinces Finn and Jake that it's hopeless. They need to help people nonviolently, by being active in their community. Hilarity ensues.

    Man, I love that show.
