Adventure Time: Fionna and Cake: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Kaiya Shunyata RogerEbert.com This show understands who its viewers are and what they need after such a long time away from this world. Aug 29, 2023 Full Review Adventure Time: Fionna and Cake: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Erin Maxwell LA Weekly/Village Voice Adventure Time: Fionna and Cake feels like the original even as it tackles more adult themes such as despondency and apathy. Their absurd yet emotive comedic antics are exactly what we need in these unsteady times. Like a hug from fantastical old friends. Sep 10, 2023 Full Review Adventure Time: Fionna and Cake: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Joyce Slaton Common Sense Media And fans of the original will be heartened to see that this series is deeply connected to the original, with recognizable (yet twisted) versions of familiar characters who suddenly appear, and the same knack for surreal, yet emotional plot twists. Rated: 4/5 Sep 6, 2023 Full Review Adventure Time: Fionna and Cake: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Brittany Vincent Decider This is the triumphant return to the world of Adventure Time fans have been waiting for, and it sets the stage for one of the most interesting concepts the show has seen in some time. Sep 5, 2023 Full Review Adventure Time: Fionna and Cake: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Coleman Spilde The Daily Beast Fionna and Cake is a marked expansion of the Adventure Time lore, one that is less raucous and more story-focused from the jump. Sep 5, 2023 Full Review Adventure Time: Fionna and Cake: Season 1 | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Jake Kleinman Inverse It manages to move the entire franchise forward by leaps and bounds, delivering one of the saga’s most emotionally mature entries, which, as Adventure Time fans will know, is saying a lot.

poll b Did everything the original series did and even better whilst being its own thing tying perfectly into the amazing lore. Cant wait for Season 2 Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/21/24 Full Review Noah B Adventure Time > Fionna and Cake > Distant LandsIt's an improvement Rated 3.5/5 Stars • Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/24 Full Review Hazel C Great show! Even though I never watched Adventure Time before this, I was still able to enjoy it a lot :D Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/14/24 Full Review Jim B Nothing like adventure time, not funny, too much singing, not grounded, completely pointless. I wish they just let adventure time rest in piece as the perfect show it was, rather than trying to squeeze more money out of it with these disconnected spin-offs that don't seem to understand what made the show special. It's not terrible, but it shouldn't exist.
