Animated by NeroGeist:
Since he was a young boy doodling on post-it-note flipbooks, Pendleton Ward knew he wanted to be an animator. Unlike many kids his age, he wasn’t interested in the popular Disney cartoons. Instead, he was drawn to the adult humor of The Simpsons, imaginative but terrible post-apocalyptic movies like Waterworld, and making up worlds and stories about orcs and flesh golems during D&D sessions.
Ward excelled during his time at CalArts, creating absurd characters like those in his webcomic, Bueno the Bear. After graduation, Eric Homan from Frederator Studios approached Ward to pitch an animated short. Ward showed up to the meeting with a guitar, singing the opening theme song for his idea, Adventure Time. Airing on Nickelodeon’s Random! Cartoons in 2007 and released online, the seven-minute short -- about a boy named Pen and his levitating dog who could access the Internet with his mind -- went viral.
Despite the success, Nickelodeon rejected making Adventure Time into a series...twice. While working on The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack, Ward and his team continued building the world of Adventure Time, fleshing out the Land of Ooo and its adorably grotesque mutant inhabitants. They then pitched to Cartoon Network and after a few grueling rewrites, Adventure Time premiered in April 2010 to critical acclaim, ushering in a new era of animation.
Adventure Time History:
Adventure Time takes place after a nuclear war, “The Great Mushroom War”, leaves most of human civilization in ruins in the “Land of Ooo”. Those who survived included magical beings, the undead, and those already without souls, like Business Men. After the Great Mushroom War, the nuclear fallout created a bunch of mutants who began creating new civilizations in the Land of Ooo among the toxic waste and cityscapes up in the sky. For many years, humans were thought to be extinct until one day in the Oooian Woodlands, a dog couple discovered a crying human baby who they took home and raised him with their pups, Jermaine and the shape-shifting Jake. Ever since that day, Finn and Jake became best buds, living in a tree house, playing video games, and crawling into dungeons. It is even said that Finn bears a secret that will forever change the Land of Ooo.
