Could Nostalgia Be Why We Love Adventure Time?

By Dave Bouressa

You know that college kid in his 20's wearing a Jake the Dog hat? Well that could be more normal than you think.

Although Adventure Time is clearly for kids, it has evolved to the point where it is just as much for older audiences, if not more so. But why is that?

Could it be the adult jokes that are snuck into the overall bigger picture? Is it the bright colors and absurd images? Could be the incredible humor? Could it be the longing for adventure?

Yes. To all of those. And it can be all summed up in one word: Nostalgia. Youtuber Pbsideachannel explains...

As stated above, the show has been getting darker to please older audiences-particularly as we learn more of the backstory of The Land of Oo and it's inhabitants, while at the same time still staying bright and colorful and giving laughs by the minute! And I hope to Glob that it continues that way!

Adventure Time is a show that has continued to grow over the years and grabbed the attention of children and adults. I know from experience that the best thing anyone can do to finish a stressful night is have a few beers on hand, a few adorable kittens walking around, and some great friends to marathon Adventure Time with.

Adventure Time can be seen Mondays at 7:30pm on Cartoon Network.
