Ice King Battle Party

We all know, love, hate, and feel sorry for poor old Ice King. Let’s look on a funny side of him though, shall we? Cartoon Network has put together something special for us. 🙂

Talk about an identity crisis. Ice King has had more looks than we can count. Guess that’s what happens when you live for a thousand years. Here are some of our favorite Ice Kings.

Which Ice King face is your fav?

Hmm… what would my favorite be…? I think I like Clumsy Ice King and Probably Not Ice King. 🙂 However, I love Before Ice King and Marcy’s Ice King if we were on a more serious note.

Can’t decide what your favorite face is? Need some advice? You’re in luck! AdvIce King is here!

    Dear Loud DJ,
    Every day is a snow day in the Ice Kingdom. And we’ve got plenty fun stuff to do! See! Look, here’s a whole list of fun, cool things you can do on a snow day.Build snow minions. Who needs friends when you have minions?

    Or just call up your bro-dogs and have a party. I don’t know. Why are you asking me anyway?

    Dear AdvIce King,
    How can I get my own castle?
  • March 10, 2014 5:00:00 PMAdvIce King
    Dear Strange Brine,
    Whoa, whoa, whoa! Castles don’t just grow on trees, you know. They grow on mountains. Find yourself an empty mountaintop and kick out whatever’s living there–probably be a bear or yeti or something. It won’t be easy, but hey, that’s the price of being a king.

    Dear AdvIce King,
    How do I kill Ice King?
  • March 10, 2014 5:00:00 PMAdvIce King
    Nice try, Vivian!
    But you have to get up pretty early in the morning to outsmart this Ice King.

Okay then… I don’t know about you guys, but I actually wouldn’t follow much of Ice King’s advice. If it were Simon’s advice, that would be better. 😉

Not to rain on Ice King’s parade or anything, but we do have something else, possibly more important, to talk about. Adventure Time is coming out with a new online game!

We are working on a brand-new game: Adventure Time Battle Party! Cartoon Network’s new multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) will be totally mathematical and ready for you very soon – in the meantime, check out the exclusive teaser trailer!

Get ready to party! Adventure Time Battle Party is coming soon to Cartoon Network!

It will probably be up on the Cartoon Network site when it comes out.

That’s all for now! 🙂

The Red Betty

Yeah, yeah, this is late considering the new episode of Adventure Time is coming on tonight. I know I’m a bit behind on some things. Anyway, let’s start this AT update with the latest episode, The Red Throne.

The Red Throne was AT’s Valentine’s Day Special (If you want to watch it before you read on, click here!). It was about how Flame King took back the Fire Kingdom, so Flame Princess and Cinnamon Bun had to get Finn’s help to take it back. There was some drama, but it was still a good episode. We got to see a little more of Flame King and his evil deeds, but what I really want to focus on is Cinnamon Bun. First of all, this episode proves that CB does have some emotional feelings towards FP. He might not exactly want to date her, but he as some obligation to protect her. More importantly… Cinnamon Bun is fully baked!

Okay, okay, I’ll backtrack a bit. In previous episodes, we’ve heard PB and other characters saying that CB is half-baked. At the time, we just thought of it as a nice way to say dumb, or a Candy Kingdom way of saying dumb. Well, it still means dumb, but now we have more insight. In The Red Throne, CB acts smarter, especially towards the end. More specifically, after he get’s hurt. Hurt with fire. We cook things, like baked goods, with fire and heat. Getting the picture? CB is officially smart! Can you believe it? Some people might feel that their beloved character has been changed, but I think it’s great news! He was just a little bit too immature for me to handle.

What did you guys think about The Red Throne?

Okay, here’s the big shocker. You may have noticed in TNPT, that the next episode is called Betty. The synopsis of the episode, however, has changed since TNPT issue. The new synopsis is “In Wizard City, a magic spell backfires and turns Ice King back into Simon. Now with Finn, Jake and Marceline’s help, Simon finds a way to bring his beloved Betty back. Finally reunited with the love of his life, everything is great! There’s just one catch… without his magic crown, Simon will die.” I KNOW, RIGHT???

This is going to be one of the biggest episodes!!! Just like I Remember You and Simon & Marcy, this is going to be one that pulls at the heart strings, I can tell. For one, we’re going to finally meet Betty! Simon’s long lost true love! The reason he kidnaps princesses! Yet, at the same time, aren’t we going to miss Ice King? The misguided old man that everyone loved to laugh at? I mean… what will happen to Gunter? And Gunther? And Gaunter? And all the other adorable penguins! 😯 Then of course, when we push all our memories of foolish old Ice King aside and try to get to know the real Simon, there’s the fact that he will die if he stays. What the nuts is going to happen?!?!?

Now, your probably thinking, “OMG!!!!! SD, why don’t you show us the stinking preview already (Even though it will just make us more anxious)???” Well, sorry guys. But Cartoon Network is being a total patoot right now. The only video I can show you about Betty is this (Enjoy!):

My body might donk out soon.” Is that seriously all you’re going to show us CN? 😐 There is absolutley nothing else you’re going to give us. Now, I searched for a bit and I did find a piece of promo art for the episode.

Nothing much, but now we know that Huntress Wizard, vaguely seen in a previous episode, will most likely be a part of the story. If you don’t remember here, this is what she looks like in color:

See the similarities? Yeah. Well, that pretty much wraps up this AT update! I wish I had more to say, but I don’t. Hopefully we’ll have most of the answers in… less than two hours! I can’t wait for Betty! 😀

P.S. Thanks King of Ooo (Official AT Site) for the awesome pictures!

Apple Grass – AdvIce King

Yep, just another AT episode recap and review! The most recent episode was Apple Wedding, in which Tree Trunks and Mr. Pig got married. If you haven’t seen the episode, you can watch it here (for free). 🙂

I thought it was a cute episode, but also really disgusting. For one thing, TT’s mom. She creeps me out big time (LIKE THAT KISS AT THE END??? EWW!!!). Heck, I didn’t know her mom could be alive! I also didn’t know that TT was married, like 3 times before! So… yeah… The whole Wyatt (TT’s ex) and BMO thing was creepy too. Wyatt is definitely… uh… odd. Then there’s the “King of Ooo”. What the heck was with him?

king of ooo

(Looks like he’s made of earwax ^^^)I have to say, I’m with PB on the whole King of Ooo is a fraud thing. We just seems… suspicious? What do you guys think? This guy makes me confused. I mean, did you pay close attention to his speech when wedding Tree Trunks and Mr. Pig? He was talking about something like them being his slaves… When escaping the dungeon (jail), he also shouts “Kingofooo.com!” What is cool, is that before this episode came out, I found a site called kingofooo.tumblr.com which is basically the same thing. The site seems to be owned by some AT Creators and they post a lot of cool pictures and sneak peeks (like the one below that came out before Apple Wedding).

apple wedding

(In the comic above, when BMO asks the air to the wedding, I think he might be asking “Bubble” from the episode BMO Lost) Apple Wedding had interesting characters and a decent plot in my opinion. It definitely wasn’t a “filler” episode, but it wasn’t HUGE on storyline. Sure, TT and Mr. Pig finally wed, but in my eyes, that’s not as big of a deal as… let’s say FP and Finn’s breakup. So, overall, how did you feel about this episode?

On to the next episode; Blade of Grass.

As you can mostly see by the preview, the episode synopsis is “When Finn tries to replace his broken sword with a grass sword, he learns the new one is cursed.” I don’t have a big prediction on this episode though. However,  I did find this official piece of art for one of the scenes.

blade of grass 1

It seems to be a draft of this scene from the preview:

blade of grass 2

Is it just me, or does it look like they’re at some messed up playground? There are slides everywhere. How could Finn and Jake have gotten into that mess anyway? I suppose we’ll have to wait and see, unless any of you guys have a theory, because I’m out of ideas. 😛

In other news, there was a new post from AdvIce King on the Cartoon Network Blog! Ever wonder how to escape chores, get princesses to like you, or to break a world record? If so, you’ve come to the right place.

Dear Courtney,
That’s what henchmen are for. Get yourself a legion of loyal penguins, or some other flightless bird. (I hear emus are nice). They’ll do pretty much anything you need, like cleaning out the fridge, guarding your mountain fortress, or scrubbin’ your armpits. Ya know, chore stuff.

    Dear AdvIce King,
    How do I get princesses to like me?
  • January 15, 2014 10:00:00 AMAdvIce King

Dear Crazy,
I wish there was a simple answer. There isn’t. But I can tell you what NOT to do.
Things I’ve learned so far:

  • Don’t kidnap them
  • Don’t lock them in your ice dungeon
  • Don’t read them really great fan fiction that you wrote yourself
  • Don’t threaten to squish them into juice
  • Don’t steal chunks of various princesses to create the perfect monster wife. (That’s a big one)

The key is to never stop trying. Worst-case scenario, you can always marry your own foot.

Dear Oddball,
Cheat.

Umm… not exactly the advice I would’ve given but I guess it’s all in perspective. 😉

Adventure on everyone!
