“Adventure Time: The Original Cartoon Title Cards (Vol. 2)” Review

Looking for a truly mathematical book full of beautiful artwork and behind-the-scenes snippets? Then oh my glob, Adventure Time: The Original Cartoon Title Cards (Vol. 2) is here and waiting to be perused by you! This book covers seasons three and four, making for a visually stunning read, especially when accompanied by artist commentary on how each title card came to be.

"I'm a buff baby who can dance like a man."

“I’m a buff baby who can dance like a man.”

Each page of the book displays a title card from a corresponding episode, along with the artist’s process of how they chose what to depict. Fun fact: The above title card was inspired by Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland! (Naturally, this is one of many things you can learn by purchasing the book!)

"A crystal sword! I'm all about swords. How did you know?"

“A crystal sword! I’m all about swords. How did you know?”

Naturally, the book features the title card for the gender-swapped episode of Adventure Time. “Fionna and Cake” started off as sketches from an artist and then spawned into multiple alternate universe episodes!

"If you say anything, I'll stab you in the brain!"

“If you say anything, I’ll stab you in the brain!”

This title card was actually the work of a young fan. Pendleton Ward enjoyed the drawing so much, not only was the title card used for an episode, but it also transpired in the creation of Me-Mow as a character!

"Oh, what a treat! Okay, well I'll see you trimpy flimmers on triode flimpin' the diode!"

“Oh, what a treat! Okay, well, I’ll see you trimpy flimmers on triode flimpin’ the diode!”

The title cards each went through a drafting phase. Usually, not much would change between the drafting and the final processes except for fine-tuning. In the case of this title card, many things were added that were not in the initial draft. Care to take a guess?

"At the end of the day, it's all about the lumps."

“At the end of the day, it’s all about the lumps.”

In the early sketch of this title card, Lumpy Space Princess actually had legs! How lumpin’ crazy is that?

"Winning this battle could take our reputation to a whole new level!"

“Winning this battle could take our reputation to a whole new level!”

To see more of the title cards and find out more interesting trivia behind the show, be sure to purchase this book! Coming from a fan, this book is a must-have. Vol. 2 is beautifully designed and bound, with eye-catching pages and fascinating facts. It’s available now in stores and online. So what are you waiting for? The fun will never end!
