Even though it’s not been on the TV where you live, my guess is most of you Canadians who had been inclined to do so have already found a way to watch Adventure Time. However, things will get a lot easier for you beginning March 20 when Teletoon begins airing the series as part of its Sunday night line-up. Teletoon is unfortunately taking Cartoon Network’s lead by airing new episodes in measly eleven-minute portions rather than satisfying half-hour chunks, but complaining doesn’t do any good. (Thanks to Nick and More! for the heads up.)
