“Henchman” Story Outline

August 27th, 2010

Marceline’s Slave Story

Okay, I really thought yesterday’s Dimple Plant post was the end of the “Henchman”-related stuff, but it turns out we never posted the original story outline. As you can see, the writing team - who, I think, then consisted of Pen Ward, Pat McHale, Merriwether Williams, Tim McKeon, and Steve Little - churned out “Marceline’s Slave Story” last May, pre-Lady Gaga. Now that the episode has aired, you can compare and contrast the two for your weekend pleasure.

Robot Chickens Bests Adventure Time

August 22nd, 2010

*grumble*

Seth Green and Matthew Senreich’s Robot Chicken beat out Adventure Time this afternoon to win the Creative Arts Primetime Emmy for the Best Short-Form Animated Program. Adventure Time is in good company, though, with Flapjack, Chowder, “Uncle Grandpa,” and Kick Buttowski also coming up empty. (Actually, now that I think about it, Seth is the one who opened the category’s winners’ envelope and announced his own award. I call shenanigans.)

Congratulations to the Robot Chicken team (including the folks at ShadowMachine) along with all the nominees. I guess this just means Pen and his crew will have to win two Emmys next year.

Five Hours of Adventure Time on Sunday

August 19th, 2010

Adventure Time Marathon Fan Art

Holy cow, a five-hour Adventure Time marathon? That’s a lot of Finn & Jake. In theory, you could watch an episode, then go bake a pie, watch The Godfather Part II, walk around the block, eat the pie, and then tune back into the Adventure Time marathon. It’ll still be going on.

The doings kick off at 2:00 p.m. this Sunday, August 22, on Cartoon Network.

Thanks to the artist who created the above art, submitted to the Adventure Time Tumblr (sorry your link doesn’t work, imlostinyourmind).
