A zombbie approaches Princess Bubblegum and says "Give me some sugar, lady."
"Trouble in Lumpy Space"note considered the most heavily-edited episode on Cartoon Network's Australian channel. Lots of — what the Australian censors saw as — sexual innuendo and near-curse words were cut, making the dialogue jumpy and incoherent
The portal to her dimension is a frog on a mushroom, and Makeout Point in Lumpy Space is a giant tongue.
Finn comments how much he likes the ice-land, because there is a lava giant in front of his house who is absolutely hot! After Jake elbows him, he says that he meant "hot hot", not "sexy hot". Then Jake teases him, telling him that he did mean "sexy hot".
Ice King ponders why people don't like him and asks himself if it's because he's a "magic-user."
"Tenderness, ingenuity, bravery, nard-kicking ability, and when you took that giant ogre's dollar, oh man, The Keeper nearly fainted!" It should be of note that the "nard-kicking ability" line (and the previous nard-kicking scene) was cut when this episode aired on Cartoon Network Australia.
The portrait of the naked woman can be seen in the background.
"Ricardio the Heart Guy"
The first time we see Ricardio, he's walking on LSP's back saying it was a massage meant only for "best friends" and that it was "completely consensual". God only knows how they got away with something that clear-cut.
Also, Ricardio is a spawn of the Ice King's heart that wants to rip out Princess Bubblegum's heart and make out with it. Eeew.
The Ice King kissing Jake's butt after Finn threw a snowball into his eyes, temporarily blinding him
Finn and Jake's conversation, in which Jake states that Finn wishes that he was his butt, while the Ice King was Princess Bubblegum, Jake gets himself confused about this and drops the idea before they enter the Candy Kingdom.
"Business Time""My Two Favorite People"
Lady Rainicorn's joke is about "the time when [she and Jake] ran naked through that farmer's cabbage patch." Probably got past the radar since that joke was told entirely in Korean.
Lady Rainicorn, when wanting to try to get Jake to join her and Finn after she has gotvoice thanks to the translator actually says the line "Come on, my darling, wrap your legs around me."
When trying to use Tiffany to make Finn jealous, Finn is totally confused and unresponsive, seeing no reason why he would be — until it's revealed that Tiffany is a boy, at which point Finn instantly goes berserk and lunges at him, calling him a home wrecker.
"Memories of Boom Boom Mountain"
The mountain's comment of "Those men and their disgusting, fantastic bodies." Which Jake follows up with "Whoa, this guy’s got problems."
Hell, the entire episode (plus title) counts once you realize what "Boom-Boom" is supposed to mean.
"And I can still see his gorgeous back!" And at the back of the mountain, there are hills "conveniently" shaped like butt cheeks.
The marauders petting each other. And getting into it.
At the end, Finn and a few fellow wizards end up naked with logs covering their genitals, as seen above.
As this blog post explains, the "wooden logs" was their fall-back after their original crap was detected and shot down. They originally wanted to cover them with beavers.
Marceline being called a "sexy vampire lady" in the song "Oh, Marceline."
Marceline slapping Finn's butt.
During the part of the song where it says "like a mean cloud man and his beautiful cloud bride." It looks like Finn and Jake ruined said cloud man's chance to nail his bride.
"City of Thieves"
This episode can be summed up as ("You stole my purity") and murder ("My hands are unclean") joke, which becomes just plain creepy when Finn accuses a little girl of stealing his purity from him (It Makes Sense in Context, but still...).
Neptr: I'm filled with the strange desire to capture princesses. Finn: Neptr, that's a deeply unsettling thing to say.
The Ice King tells Neptr he can "mate" with robot princesses if he goes with him.
"Ocean of Fear""When Wedding Bells Thaw"
This line references vore or some kind of sick bondage fantasy:
Ice King: Marriage is a thing that allows me to capture a princess forever and let her live inside of me! Marriage is the most beautiful thing in the world!
Ice King: I just finished tying up my bride. Finn: Weird. You mean your bride is into that?
The fact that gay marriage apparently exists in the Land of Ooo, given that no one claims the Ice King and Jake's wedding is invalid because both participants are male. Either Christian conservatives don't watch Adventure Time, or they missed that one.
"Don't flaunt it, if you're not gonna give it up!" In case you're wondering Finn is talking about a key and right before this line, Finn sang a song saying that he wanted to have the key's baby.
Finn: Oh key, we're meant to be I want to have your baby Oh key, you're so good to me— (finding out the key is suspended in a cube of jelly) Euuugh, Jelly Cube! Come on, give it to me. Don't flaunt it—if you're not—gonna—give it up!
Finn and Jake met up with the Duchess, and Jake tries a few nuts from a bowl on the table, pauses, and says "Oh... should've asked if these were like, her eggs or something."
At the end of the episode, Jake is dressed as Princess Bubblegum at the Grand Meeting of Ooo Royalty, looking incredibly bored. Eventually, he turns to a prince who is actually the Marquis of Nuts in disguise and says the following:
Also, take a closer look at Eberhardt (the guy who's bow tie kinda looked like a bra). That's totally a penis with clothes and hair, and the bra makes the balls.
The bra joke could've been a misdirection to take people's attention away from the fact that this character is a penis.
In , the Duke of Nuts wants to know why Finn wants to "sack his nut castle". Wouldn't be so bad except they use the phrase several times in a minute.
Duke of Nuts: Why would you want to sack my nut castle on my second son's first birthday?!
The zombie skeleton groping Finn's butt.
Near the beginning when Jake says "I'd love to help you, but she scares the filling out of my doughnut." In a previous episode he referred to his butt as his "powdered doughnut", literally getting "crap" past the radar.
"Rainy Day Daydream"
Again, the torn picture of the naked woman can be seen.
Jake mentions imagining his mother naked.
Also, him saying to an imaginary girl, "If you weren't a figment of my imagination, I'd want to have your babies."
"What Have You Done?"
The word "bosom" is said a lot.
In the book that shows the Ice King's howls curing the Candy People, on the opposite page you see "5318008", which when turned upside-down reads "boobies". They definitely put that in on purpose, considering if you pause it and look closely, you notice some odd dots in some of the rounder numbers.
When Finn is depressed after all his efforts of helping people non violently went wrong, Jake tries to cheer him up by telling him that they could just run away, hide and get into cannibalism to survive. This was in the spanish version too.
The Soft People "wee-wee" when they see the Gut Grinder. "Wee-wee" from their armpits. Yes. The censors actually missed a joke about a guy peeing out of his armpits.
Finn:“Heh. That guy wee-wees weird.”
Finn: "How come you never become a monster when I want you to? You're always saying, 'Not now. I have a headache.'"
"Sharon, you've been a bad girl!" He's talking to his wife.
When Jake is worried he might be the Gut Grinder:
Finn: You can't be stealing gold in your sleep! *wide eyed, happy expression* I watch you when you sleep. Jake: ... that's creepy, man. Finn: I can't help it! I take pictures.
"It Came from the Nightosphere"
"Who the fluff are you?"
Marceline: Finn, you're like an ant to him. Finn: Oh, yeah? Well this ant's about to get in his pants! Marceline: ... What. Finn:(blushes)Well--You know! Because I'm going to make him uncomfortable while I release those souls!
"Nobody flicks me in my butt without my consent!"
And Marceline's father has a phallic appearance, has serious vagina dentata mouth, and absorbs and releases souls which look like giant sperm.
Pen Ward: Marceline’s dad, when he turned into a giant monster, we had a bunch of notes about it, that it was too vagina-like. We had to change the shape of it and then they said it looked too much like a penis.
After Finn defeats Marceline's dad, he says "I'll see you in the Nightosphere, you sick freak!" According to Word of God, the Nightosphere is basically Hell. Put ...
The discussion of snakes: "There's even one in my underpants!" Really. With a visual aid too (Finn's holding up a snake, wearing a pair of his underpants).
When Finn and Jake are near the window, a tiny figure hanging itself can be seen.
"Loyalty to the King"
After Finn and Jake escape with the princess and the Ice King wakes up, thinking she broke up with him and ran off rather than being rescued, moans "Why did she leave? I put so much cool stuff in her little prison!".
"Blood Under the Skin"
The entire shower scene, including the dude yelling, "My most private parts, peeped by a boy!"
"Make her think it was her idea! That's how you make the ladies do what you want...."
This episode is proof that the radar imploded in on itself a long time ago. "Well, I'm just sitting here thinking about mating with snails..."
"I'll mate with you!"
Jake switching back and forth between imitating a male snail and a female snail is actually a pretty clever joke about how snails are hermaphrodites. And also a stunning example of this trope.
Jake goes into the house, which is currently on Snorlock's back, but get this... currently Snorlock has a bunch of lady snails "dancing" against him, which is destroying their home in the process. Before Jake leaves, Finn has this line:
Finn: JAKE, NOOOO! You'll get slimed or grinded on!
You can also clearly see the "ass" of the girl snails.
When the first female snail sees Snorlock, she sucks in her gut and makes her "breasts" bigger.
Snorlock's beatboxing is a dead ringer for a Bow Chicka Wow Wow porno beat. And when he atttracts the babes with it, the start bumpin' and grindin' on him!!
When Snorlock and the other female slug make out, Beemo watches and goes, "Go! Go! Go!"
In , the gnomes lead Finn to a machine that has a capsule with a pole in it, and is powered by "sexy-fun dancing!". Finn refuses, but they shoot electricity through the floor and Finn is forced to dance around the pole in order to not be electrocuted. It's pretty terrifying if you get down to it. So, yeah, in summary, they made Finn pole-dance.
In the next shot, Jake is surrounded by dancing bugs chanting "Chug! Chug! Chug!" with an upturned red Solo cup.
Marceline: Of course I'll go with you, Finn. Finn: You will? Marceline: Yeah, as friends... Finn: Of course as friends! Marceline: But no tongue. Finn: Ye-WHAA?
"Belly of the Beast"
From Finn's song:
Finn: All of our favorite foods are totally dead / They cannot procreate in little food-beds.
In with bears dancing in the background be seen grinding against each other.
The constant referring to feces as "stuff"
When Finn and Jake first see the labyrinth:
Finn:(looking at the labyrinth from uphill)Fudge, man! This place is yoga balls huge!
And the song Finn and Jake sing inside the labyrinth. Could be a Double Entendre as well.
Finn: Sing, coz Yo Mamma, Yo Mamma, Yo Mamma said. She said Yo Mamma, Yo Mamma, Yo Mamma what? What Yo Mamma say, she say? Jake: I'm busy makin' babies, greasy babies, slidin' on my gravies in the— Ah, I forget the next part.
"Careful, dude. I think that's my , but like super stretched out."
A sneaky example. The cup that Finn was pouring at the beginning of the episode has a bunch of Runic letters on it. When converted to the Latin alphabet, the message says "Cup of many ales". Ale, of course, is beer.
Finn: Hey man, I'm sorry for punching you in the ball.
"Well...holes are holes!"
In , Jake looks in PB's bathroom through a keyhole and tells Finn to check it out, and Finn says "C'mon, man, that's pervy!" Note that Jake was just freaked out by what she had turned into, but still...
The Ice King going "Well, I'm out of here" when Princess Bubblegum is revealed to now be 13 years old
"Conquest of Cuteness"
Finn: Those cuties are nothing but an afternoon's delight.
And this one:
Finn: I'm gonna manhandle those guys's banandles!
"Morituri Te Salutamus"
There's evidence that some or all of the gladiator ghosts were homosexual. to his partner as "my love", although you might not realize at the time that the ghosts were repeating the last words they said to their partners before killing them or being killed by them.
Ice King spreads his honey on Breakfast Princess' pancakes. It's made worse considering her skirt is a pancake.
Ice King attempts a Look Behind You against Scorcher. "Look! Someone got hit in the boing-loins!" And as if this wasn't bad enough, he keeps repeating it until Scorcher looks! An animatic released after the episode aired reveals that he originally said "nuts", not "boing-loins".
Could possibly be a bit of a Development Gag, as the name of the network executive that has the final say on what the show can and can't do is Robert Sorcher.
Right before that, there's some pretty obvious goblin butt.
At , Ice King offers Scorcher night vision X-ray goggles, for when he has "lady houseguests".
One of the hearts (that say "CALL ME" and so on) gives some of its biomass to Princess Bubblegum. You never see it completely, but the message on it is "TUG ME".
You can see the "TUG ME" heart's official character art here.◊
Lemongrab, an adult male, is shown completely naked. The fact that he has Barbie Doll Anatomy somehow makes it even weirder...
Lumpy Space Princess: I know you want this body... BUT YOU CAN'T HAVE IT!
Realizing this may be the end, Finn wishes a tearful goodbye to his friends. As well as PP, Poo-poo and Doo-doo, whoever they are.
Near the end of the episode:
Jake: Sorry for bitin' you, sugar. Lady Rainicorn:(smiles, in Korean) <I wanted you to bite me.> note Or, "I like you biting me," depending on interpretation. Jake:(Luminescent Blush) (nervous laugh) Heh... heh-heh-heh-heh.... Oh...
The painting of the naked woman strikes again.
Jake turns his head into a clam shape, and opens it to reveal a dancing naked lady posed like Botticelli's "Birth of Venus" (with her hair covering her crotch and breasts). The worst part is that the naked lady has Jake's face, made tiny so it fits.
At , as they get to the crushers, Finn seems to say "ball zacks!"
This is most likely a reference to Honoré Balzac, a French playwright and novelist.
"No One Can Hear You"
Finn: Thanks for breaking my legs, ya dumbbutt. Deer:(licks his crotch)
As Finn fights the Deer, he kicks it several times in the crotch.
Joshua (on tapes): I made you boys something—It's babies. Full of babies. —The family sword. It's made out of—babies.
In a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment, Finn kills monsters by taking out its brain.
Yet another person dies on-screen. When one of the witches eats the fruit, she gets covered in vines (which grow out of her mouth and eye sockets), and the vines rot off to reveal an apple. As the other two tear the apple apart viciously, a bloody core covered in bones can be seen. Yes, actual blood.Wooooooow.note The storyboard tries to cover it up by calling the bones "chicken bones". (Pfff, right.) That would only complicate things, because it suggests that the witch was turned into a chicken and then eaten, or a chicken was put in the apple in place of her... and then bloodily eaten.
Beemo simulating urination by pouring water into the toilet.
Basically, the whole episode is getting crap past the Radar. The spiders spinning their webs was quite obviously supposed to look and sound like pooping. Finn's disgusted reaction does not help at all.
Finn: Does your wife make that sound, too?! Ed: Yeah, I guess, but she never does it in front of me.
"Your butt is dysfunctional!" (And then Barb blushes.)
Barb going into labor and screaming while giving birth to billions of spiders.
"He's been helping me... tend to my rose garden." Cue TT and Pig giggling mischievously and exchanging naughty glances.
"An unmarried couple living under the same roof? That's indecent!" Seriously, radar?
The inevitable tongue kissing between Tree Trunks and Pig.
Tree Trunks and Pig's suggestive dance at Bubblegum's concert, complete with them smacking their butts together
Jam Jam: This is too much! Aah! Aaah! It's driving me crazy!
Jake pointing to his lower torso when exclaiming "Pie! Pie! Lay it right here!" Yes, he means his stomach, but the scene begins with pointing to himself while spread eagle.
"You giving me a back rub, bro?"
"Return to the Nightosphere"
Finn and Jake basically visit Hell.◊ Or what really resembles Hell. Even Pen calls it depictions of "Hell" on television, which it could be.
You can see in the background.
A demon mentioning "making brown" and having IBS.
This quote, after Finn realizes how long the wait is to the teller:
"Daddy's Little Monster"
When Beemo is charging up Jakes cellphone, he makes motions that look a lot like pooping.
Theoretically, anything involving bananas, which demons apparently shit... out of their ears. With fart noises.
(Or monster) is cut in two , you can see his insides..Yes, they are GUTS!!!
to puke up banana's for eternity, note what bananas are in the Nightosphere
"In Your Footsteps"
The way Beemo reacts to Finn & Jake's arguing calls to mind a child reacting to a argument in a dysfunctional household.
When Finn and Jake find the woods party, Jake says the following about the bear. "He got in close and used you. Now he's feeding nuts to your ex girlfriend." Cut to bear putting a peanut in Bubblegum's mouth. And then bear giving her the heimlich maneuver.
Jake: Finn? Say something to reassure me! Finn: I'll hug Your Mom!
Wolf Finn and the Alpha having a hug fight looked a lot like they were doing the nasty. Doesn't help the love explosion at the end combined with their howls made it look and sound like they hit the climax...
"Princess Monster Wife"
LSP at somefresh with her lumps.
The Ice King saying that he would love Princess Monster Wife even without her "lady parts."
And during his song, he says he's going to "introduce her parts to something new"...
This episode is over all much darker than a normal episode (well, a normal episode in season2). The whole episode Princess Monster Wife is suffering from terrible self esteem issues.
Not to mention, Princess Monster Wife essentially commits suicide at the end of the episode by disassembling herself and returning all of her parts back to the princesses.
Goliad's speech as she crushes the bee in her paws and brings it back to life is EXTREMELY dark. This, along with "Holly Jolly Secrets II" and "Princess Monster Wife", is episodes of the show.
When Bubblegum is explaining to Goliad how the bee gets pollen from the flower, the whole thing looks pretty... suggestive. Bubblegum's dialog only makes it dirtier.
Goliad is clearly saying "Glob Dobbit" in the playground scene. We know who Glob stands for, so Dobbit... is presumably not something she should be saying. Bonus points for the fact that actor is using her best cutesy voice she can while doing so.
"Beyond This Earthly Realm"
When "the real cutie pie" drifts through, and Finn is disgusted by the Ice King's lust over it.
Ice King: What? I swear I never touch 'em!
The Ice King is naked, and he tries to cover himself up with Finn's hat as a shirt. The bear ears are right where the Ice King's nirps should be, and it looks an awful lot like a bra.
As a whole, this is probably the "sexiest" episode Adventure Time has ever had. Imagine if Lumpy Space Princess was replaced with someone more humanoid.
The title card, which depicts LSP with large breasts, wearing a tight, low-cut spaghetti strap dress that shows off a LOT of cleavage. She's reclining on a couch, winking suggestively at the audience as she works on a typewriter. Certainly the sexiest title card we've ever seen in the show (surpassing the "Tree Trunks" title card), and the sexiest we've ever seen LSP looking.
"These lumps are not for SALE, BILLY!!!"
In this episode, it's made clear that "lumps" are pretty much a euphemism for something visually/sexually appealing for men, like breasts. Actually, yeah, it's pretty much the equivalent of breasts. note Fun fact! In "Princess Monster Wife", LSP's lumps functioned as PMW's breasts.
Lumpy Space Princess: Looks like I'm gonna have to bust out these cobras to get a better dinner. (rubs her lumps) Hey, Fiiiinn... Have anything better to eat??
When LSP shows up to be Finn and Jake's secretary, she leans over for an extended period of time to pull something out of her purse on the ground. She doesn't have an ass to show off, but it's obvious what she's doing.
Lumpy Space Princess: Finn, my dress is slipping...
At trapped in the room covered in mirrors. She sees in them topless Finn, taking off his shirt and hat and swinging his long blonde hair seductively. At first she's happy thinking she's finally seduced Finn, but as the topless Finns then walk towards her with their hands outstretched:
Lumpy Space Princess: Oh, lump, I took it too far!
Everything we see of LSP's book. It uses the term "PO" and has a story about Melissa, whose "lump was crooked" after she left the bathroom.
The cookie, rather than being caught, chooses to jump off a cliff, shattering but retaining consciousness at the end. In other words, he failed at suicide and was hospitalized.
The whole wishing to be a princess has some... interesting vibes if you view it as wishing to be a girl and being frustrated with his gender.
Add the fact that Princess Cookie tried to commit suicide because he "would never be a princess" and the transgender theme becomes rather blatant.
And the fact that Jake wanted to be a mailman instead of a milkman reinforces this interpretation (Get it? Like, male-man vs. milk[as in mammalian breasts]-man?) .
's chips is named Chip Faced.
Jake: "Holy Chip!"
"I glubbed up!"
The cup with runic letters that says "cup of many ales" makes a reappearance in the beginning of the episode (except this time, it's red instead of green).
"Sons of Mars"
Finn calls Magic Man a "succu-butt", a pun on succubus.
When Abraham Lincoln gives his immortality to death, there is a very clear gunshot noise as the screen fades out, the next seen we see him as the Lincoln Memorial. All those who know about Lincoln know this reference.
Jake explains "The Tiers of Love":
Jake: Bro, you gotta let things take their natural path. Look, let me explain to you some junk about dating. Right now, you're at Tier 1, which is hugging, but pretty soon, you'll be at Tier 2, which is smooching! Then down the road you'll make it to Tier 5, where she'll let you discover all of her 15 feet of her long beautiful stomach. And after a while, you'll make it to Tier 8, where you touch her horn for the very first time, very special. Finn: What about Tier 15? Jake: (immediately)YOU STAY AWAY FROM THAT.
When Ricardio first talks to PB, he asks if she found his dungeon stimulating. Remember that the dungeon featured grabbing hands, glaring eyes, and a giant tongue.
When Princess Bubblegum takes off her jacket, Ricardio looks very excited.
Just before, he was talking about how didn't just want to make out with her heart anymore, he wanted the "whole package." PB then taking off her jacket was accompanied by her pretending to give in to him.
Lady Rainicorn reveals that she is pregnant. She doesn't say it in the cartoonishly joyous way, either. This causes some Fridge Horror when you remember how Ricardio tied her in a knot and threw her against the wall, all while she was pregnant...
Plus there was the fact that she was pregnant out of wedlock
What Ricardio does to the Ice King is horrifying and is a little too gory and graphic, to the point where you wouldn't expect even an adult's show to get away with it. It helps that they mostly keep him in shadow, but still...yeesh.
To clarify, he harvests the Ice King's tissue and organs to make a body for himself, then climbs out of him but keeps him alive in case he needs more tissue. To do this, he hooks the Ice King's loose arteries - and yes, this is all shown onscreen - up to his lair, so that it will function as a kind of heart and continue to pump blood through his body.
"You Made Me"
Aaaand the suicidal subtexts are back, everyone! Lemongrab jumps out of a window in his despair over his castle having no citizens. Princess Bubblegum tries to talk him out of it, but he falls out of the window listlessly. She reaches out, saying "Wait!," to no avail. When he falls to the ground unharmed, he runs screaming through the castle grounds, tearing off his clothes while wailing, "YOU'RE... MY... GLOB! YOU'RE MY GLOB!" To recap, Glob="God" in the AT universe.
There was quite a bit of Ho Yay between Lemongrab and his clone- especially the way they nuzzled each other's faces.
Princess Bubblegum: I made him for you in your pantry! For you to be with!
On the statue of Lemongrab as Finn and co. enter the castle, there is a sword posed rather...suggestively.
Adventure Time is pretty known for putting kids (ie, Finn) in dangerous situations, but always with the audience's knowlege that Finn is tough and will be all right. However, "You Made Me" was probably the first episode where genuine, horrible, relatively realistic child abuse occured. In this episode, Lemongrab (an adult) electrocutes four children in an electrical torture chamber, and then slaps/punches a small candy person who is implied to be a baby or young child. And for the most part none of this was played for laughs.
"Who Would Win?"
Finn and Jake get knocked out and have a dream where a creature called the "Dream Warrior" gives them advice on how to defeat a big farmhouse. was to aim for "".
Other butt-related moments: Jake slapping his own butt repeatedly, long after it was clear Finn was not there; Jake pinning Finn to the ground with his butt; Finn biting Jake's butt.
Farm actually crushes with his... crotch. He squats down and crushes him with his crotch.
Farm craps on Finn and Jake... He squats down, and a bunch of animals fall out of the bottom of the farm.
At , a bit character refers to Farm as a "mother".
that berserks the Flame King into arresting Finn is finding out the Finn has his daughter's scented candles.
To clarify, Finn and Jake had already been arrested at this point. Finding the scented candles in Finn's backpack is what got Flame King to bring out the executioners.
Guard: Sire! It's your daughter's scented candles!
Flame King: SICKOS! Off with their heads!
"The Hard Easy"
The mud scamps squirting juice out of their head resembles urination.
The "Butt Tree", a tree with a pair of lumps on it suspiciously shaped like buttocks.
Said butt-shaped lumps are in a hole that looks a lot like a vulva.
The ending, with Finn kissing the mega-frog to turn him back into a Prince. Afterwards, Prince Huge even says "I don't know a lot of dudes who'd do that to help a guy out." What's more, Finn says he's okay with kissing dudes because he's comfortable with himself like that.
A piece of questionable dialogue...
Finn: Shmowtowt dude, that guy is gonna dingle our bones into tapioca pudding. Jake: Finn that is gross man, don't use language like that!
The Ice King attempting to turn a platonic, comforting hug into a romantic, possibly sexualized kiss is EXTREMELY squicky. The Ice King's entire backstory is a pretty obvious allegory for senility and mental illness; the fact that the sex drive does not disappear with the onset of such things is one of the more awkward and disturbing aspects for those who have to deal with it in Real Life. The fact that they were willing to deal with it, even obliquely, in a children's show is... well, it's hard to decide if it's an incredibly brave and admirable artistic choice or if they just took it too far.
"Finn the Human"/"Jake the Dog"
Finn tells Big D to "suck [his] shirt."
This is the episode that basically confirms the story that has been hinted at throughout the series (about how the magic fantasy world of the Land of Ooo is actually the end result of a nuclear war). It's not something that you'd expect to see in a children's show this light-hearted.
Tree Trunks' mini story has her get extremely offended at something she saw, after trying to get a vigilante mob (and failing badly) they realize what it was and why it was an accident, Shelby the Worm was reading a book on the fist of a statue, and his upright position made Tree Trunks think it was something else. By this point the censors are either being bribed to let things pass or are just incompetent.
The episode is another group of "graybles" with a connecting theme. Throughout the show, we are led to believe that the theme is the five fingers. It is not (it's actually the five tastes), and our host Cuber addresses this by explaining that nobody has five fingers anymore. But we all know the real reason is that that would mean acknowledging that was about the middle finger.
Finn and Jake stumble onto a book of nursery rhymes, and, mistaking it for a book on magic from a warlock, proceed to spend the rest of the episode sticking their thumbs into various holes in order to become "good boys." Among these holes are a Surinam toad's birthing holes, which are still visibly disgorging tadpoles.
At the very end, BMO convinces Finn and Jake to stick their fingers into 'these holes' (the controllers) to play a video game. BMO then makes a ring shape with his fingers, through which Finn and Jake stick their thumbs to press the controllers, creating a certain suggestive gesture.
"All The Little People"
Along with having more suggestive dialogue than usual, Finn's interaction with the little people in his bag is a reference to and a Take That against fanfiction and the people obsessed with shipping fictional characters. In particular:
When Finn dumps the Minis out of the bag, Mini-Bubblegum lands in Mini-Marceline's arms... Finn then separates them.
Choose Goose, Abracadaniel, and the Lollipop Girl suggestively tangled together.
Jake asks Finn, "What's that in your pants?". Finn's response?
"Oh no, not again!"
There's also the fact that he was ship-teasing himself with a character who is basically a horse. Sure, he's been paired with non-human characters before, but the fact that she's not even humanoid makes it seem much dirtier.
The naked woman painting (once again sporting a smile) appears again, but this time it can be more clearly seen in the shot it appears in, and as a result it's a bit more detailed. You can see part of what would be her breast.
This episode has incredible amounts of homosexual subtext, starting off in the first few minutes with 's fanboys asking him to dinner. This happens multiple times later on, and Finn's alter ego Davey asks another man to dinner. They are later seen hanging out together.
BMO bawls out about how Finn's Davey disguise (a balding, mustached man) looked "like the devil."
"Davey" asks the banana guard if he wants a body sweep (with a broom). He responds, "I am feeling kind of dirty..." The other banana guard says, "wow, you sure know how to party."
There are pools of blood that can be seen in the giant tentacle monster scene.
We see Lemongrab almost bleed to death on-screen. They got away with this because his blood is yellow (because he's a lemon,) but it was pretty damn graphic, made worse by the fact that he was screaming the whole time, and Tree Trunks had to save the guy's ass before they could move on.
After Lemongrab almost bleeds to death, he is lying listless on the ground. Tree Trunks remedies this by sticking her trunk into the earl's mouth and filling his body up with what appears to be snot. He smacks his lips and says, "That'll do, Slave Trunks." Did Lemongrab seriously give Tree Trunks a blowjob?!
According to Jesse Moynihan, a writer on this episode, the scene of Lemongrab bleeding was supposed to resemble ejaculation. Moynihan even said, "I thought it would be funny for him to scream “mommy” while ejaculating juice out of his head."
The scene when Lemongrab knocks out the rat then eats Tree Trunks's apple pie out of its mouth was apparently so gross that it was cut out when this episode aired in the UK. Not very well though as it cuts most of Ice King's dialogue, and you can see Lemongrab's head tilt up a frame, and he still has pie mush around his mouth.
"All Your Fault"
At , Princess Bubblegum yells "BULLGUNK!".
Nothing about this episode suggests that the Lemongrabs are anything but a homosexual couple. They even bicker about what to name , just as a real couple would! It's like Rock A Bye Byevalve all over again, but without the element of comedy.
The brain screenshot is perhaps one of the greatest examples of this trope ever put into a children's cartoon. It would take a long, long time to read all of the words written on there. The ones that have been transcribed by dedicated fans reveal some Ho Yay between Lemongrab and Lemongrab 2, some of Lemongrab's many disturbing thoughts, and one which possibly indicates extreme gastrointestinal discomfort induced by asparagus.
Lemonjon peeing... or whatever was happening down there.
Probably justified by the strange appearances and age, but we saw a few lemon butts on the Lemon Children, as well as multiple man-breasts (with nipples.)
The earls make "sex noises" as they bring the Candy Seeds to life. "Mmm hmm, mmm hmm, yes, yes, mmm hmmm, Yes, Oh YES, HERE WE GO!" Made stranger by the fact that they named the resulting child "Seed-Wad".
How the animated hat turns whatever it "eats" into poop without visibly changing it.
"Bad Little Boy"
During Marshall Lee's song, Cake morphs her body into a voluptuous one, and at , grows bigger in size and proceeds to shake her ass at the camera for a couple of seconds.
She's got a big potatah, and .
Before "Good Little Girl" starts, Marshall Lee has Fionna copy his movements and his last movement is shaking his ass, hoping Fionna would do the same.
Ice King wants to "fix" the story states "Let's polish this piece of..."
Marshall Lee sings: "I know why you're mad at me. I got demon eyes, looking right through your anatomy."
When Fionna and Marshall Lee first arrive to the party, we get a not so short scene of Lumpy Space Prince rubbing his body against a female Cinnamon Bun's breasts, with her yelling excitedly. What.
"Vault of Bones"
Flame Princess says that she's bored and remarks that at least Finn has a cute butt. In later airings this was actually changed to say "at least he's walking fast".
"The Great Bird Man"
The bit at the beginning about the mermaids beaching themselves out of loneliness. Beaching is when whales get stranded on land, and it generally ends in death, so...yeah, they were trying to commit suicide. At the end of the episode, Xergiok attempts suicide himself by walking into the Golbin Kingdom reservoir.
Xergiok's torn out eyes are...pretty graphic for a kids show.
The extremely revealing outfits some of the background mermaids wear, which basically cover their nipples and nothing else. Plus the lovely shot of that 's cleavage.
Xergiok, who has a Disney Acid Sequence later in the episode, has a bowl of what suspiciously look like psilocybin mushrooms (the mushrooms usually referred to as "shrooms" or "magic mushrooms") in his den.
"Simon and Marcy"
Though there's definitely been way worse stuff snuck past the radar in this show, it's still pretty surprising that the writers were allowed to make all those references to Cheers, considering that show's subject matter.
The strange video that Ice King sends Finn and Jake of a woman eating her own hair.
Which was, basically, a rather explicit hentai reference.
Princess Bubblegum makes out with her hand while making suggestive noises. Later she uses her hand to make out with Jake's elbow (which has a face on it).
Bubblegum seemingly pulls out something that looks very much like a gun and simply walks offscreen. Of course, it's later show to be a tranquilizer dart shooter, but the implication was there.
After Ice King's spent the entire episode begging for her love, Bubblegum finally acknowledges him, gets on her knees in front of him, and starts to lift up his robe. His reaction is, "Whoa, are you praying to me? I'm kinda into this," but, um...clearly, there was a very different implication at work.
It goes further than that. When she lifts his robe so that it's caught on his crown and his body is exposed, he says "I'm still into this." Then PB shoves him to the ground. "Still into it." note After that, PB shoves her foot in his face, but Ice King says nothing; it makes you wonder if there was a deleted joke there.
Inside the code, Finn's lower half starts to deteriorate. Upon seeing this, he shouts "Hold up dude, my body's changing!"
Finn and Jake wanting to kick Ice King's "boingloings".
The title itself references the N.W.A. song "A Bitch Iz a Bitch".
Several assets from this episode were reused from David O'Reilly's earlier works, which are FAR less kid friendly. As an example at being in a bathroom which was the scene of a suicide (NSFW)◊ in "The External World".
When Finn killed the dragon, he pretty much nicks an artery and causes its blood to spray out. If it wasn't made of pillows it is highly unlikely this scene would have made it.
Finn having sex with a pillow and having children with her.
A Fridge Horror moment ensues when Finn "remembers" what Jake told him: Not!Jake says "You're getting all hung up on imaginary problems, stay with your new wife." Meaning, Finn didn't marry Roselinen until decades after they had kids together.
In all likelihood, Not!Jake meant that Finn had met Roselinen last, making her the most current and relevant addition to his social circle.
In even more than all likelihood, this is a reflexion of viewer-time, either because Finn isn't experiencing any of the scenes in between the one's shown or (more likely) because they got sloppy.
When trying to make BMO feel better about missing the baby, he says that now he can grow up to be anything he wants, like a "Strapping horse whisperer," or "a sexy hitman," And then even proposes to BMO at the end of the episode. After Finn and Jake pop the bubble, it is revealed that he was actually air that was trapped in the bubble and now that it's popped he is now free forever and doesn't have to hide anymore. That this happens immediately after confessing his love with BMO makes it more than a bit like aComing-Out Story, even though BMO is technically genderless.
Bounce House Princess invited Finn to bounce around in her rather suggestively, to which Finn politely declined.
Multiple bikini babes show up to Finn and Jake's house and start fighting them. The last of their screen time has them dancing sensually alongside Finn, Jake, and BMO.
And one giggles as she places her hand on the shaft of the chimney.
One of the babes *special area* gets very close to Jake's head in one shot while she's pinned him down on the floor, it takes up a lot of the screen.
This episode features Peppermint Butler trying to summon a demon and gain access to the Shadow Realm.
Like "Davey" and "What Was Missing" this episode has a lot of homosexual subtext, mostly regarding Princess Bubblegum. She is not only portrayed as not being emotionally or physically attracted to any of the male suitors at all, but she outright refuses to date them. At one point a person actually flat out says, "Princess Bubblegum dosen't date". Not only that but Peppermint Butler says "I want to have your babies" after he casts the spell on Braco. He later complains about the fact that Braco tried to hit on Bubblegum instead of him and throws a fit when Braco leaves for good.
The fact that PB essentially made a Sex Bot of herself to Braco.
The brief song the suitors sing includes the line "Princess all night!"
"The Party's Over, Isla de Señorita
While living on Party God's neglected girlfriend, Ice King sows his literal seeds into her (she's an island). The "seeds" are even helpfully labelled! Not to mention planted in an anatomically accurate location...subtle.
Early in the episode, when Ice King duck tapes Princess Bubblegum's mouth while she's sleeping, claiming he was going to move her to his place while she slept so she could wake up to breakfast in bed.
"One Last Job"
Jake trying to shove a VHS tape into BMO's rear, with BMO grunting in pain and complaining that he had hurt his butt earlier sledding.
And then he destroys the tape by ejecting it from his rear.
Jake and co. feeding banana-flavored milk to a Banana Guard. He was basically forced into cannibalism.
The Ho Yay between Jake and Tiffany is really prominent in this episode.
Jake then asks Flame Princess if she "wants to see more".
Jake's injuries are referred to as "hickies from the universe."
"And everyone wants to get with the universe."
At one point, Finn, while wearing Jake like a suit, slams into a fence crotch first. Later, Jake refers to this as getting hit in the "doggie bag." Jake basically just referred to his testicles in a joke.
At the end one of the nurses says that it's time for "full body immersion therapy" suggestively, even making kissing noises with her mouth.
These are the same nurses from "Another Way", who specialize in foot kissing and consider that to be the ONLY WAY to care for injured people. Jake LOVES it; Finn, not so much.
BMO's file-deleting behavior and the euphoric response is a pretty clear equivalent to destroying brain cells with drugs.
When Jake, Finn and BMO are disguised as an SMO and BMO is plugged into an SMO's back, it looks as though they're having sex. Made more apparent by this reaction:
Another SMO: What are you two goofs doing? Goofing?
A box in Maja's house is marked "My privates." Made worse when she calls it "[her] private box."
On a darker note, the way the Sky Witch treated Crabbit toward the end was very much like Domestic Abuse.
At first, when PB seems she's going to throw down with the Sky Witch, she rolls up her sleeve. later, we find out PB traded her favorite shirt for Hambo, indicating, PB took her shirt off in front of a stranger, and she's just wearing that turtleneck now.
PB basically calls Raggedy Princess "easy" by telling Marceline, "Raggedy Princess can be your new Hambo. She’d do it too. That girl's got like, zero self respect."
"Frost & Fire"
Finn getting excited over Flame Princess beating Ice King up and getting what is basically an erotic dream of her shooting her flames at Finn's crotch and enjoying it.
And then he freaks out when he has a dream of Ice King shooting ice at Finn's crotch (not enjoying it) after Ice King beats up FP.
This is the second episode to imply that Finn is turned on by violence.
The fact that Finn's reaction to this is pretty much one reaction to being addicted to drugs. The first experience is amazing and you keep trying to recreate that first feeling you had all until your actions have hurt the people around you and it is too late to apologize.
According to the promo art by Steve Wolfhard, incest is not taboo in Castle Lemongrab. Two of the lemon brothers can be seen making out with each other in the background of this drawing. Either incest is not taboo in Castle Lemongrab, or these two lemon brothers were just very drunk at the time. Either interpretation is kind of disturbing.
In the same drawing, all of the lemon people are very clearly intoxicated. In the beginning of "Too Old," several of them are, as well.
This episode reveals one of the most violent and gruesomely disturbing examples of Domestic Abuse ever shown in a children's show. Lemongrab did so much damage to Lemongrab 2 that the second earl is now missing half of his head AND his legs, and he's apparently starving. The image is haunting.
Not only that, but Lemongrab is shown to be a very realistically abusive parent- PHYSICALLY BEATING HIS CHILDREN for NO REASON. His interactions with Lemongrab 2 also have some heavy abusive spouse undertones.
The... noises Lemongrab makes as he digs into his pudding.
This episode depicted extremely, EXTREMELY graphic cannibalism, and on-screen murder, in ways that were not played for laughs at all.
According to a little nametag in a Freeze-Frame Bonus, one of the lemon children at the dinner table is named "Duke Lemon Suck."
"Earth and Water"
Just like in "Frost & Fire", Finn gets aroused when he sees Flame Princess acting aggressive and domineering towards her father.
Jake kills two animals on the spot in order to make the titular sandwich.
The Naked Woman portrait once again returns.
"You made me a manservant?", "Don't worry. I like feeling handy.", "It's a dang plug-and-play, girl.", "I need to go to my room for no reason." Actually, a lot of the conversation directly after making the Gumball guardians can be seen as Bubblegum wanting to repay the girl in another way.
There's some pretty blatant parental abuse going on, too.
One of Finn's past incarnations resembles a pink turd.
The entire episode is basically Finn-on-Slime Princess action. Seriously.
Slime Princess: Finn, wrap your gorgeous pythons around me!
The mentioning of spooning and performing said act. Pray you have Safe Search on when looking it up.
"Maybe later we can do... "Do Not Disturb!"
All of the "bosses" that Finn encountered were likely fellow adventurers before he killed them, and whenever they attacked first, it would have been because they were so absorbed in their addiction to the train that they just saw him as another boss.
The implication being that this would have been Finn's fate had he not decided to stop.
Like in BMO Noire, the cats have visible anuses.
Marceline and Jake decided to resort to eating each other pretty quickly.
Finn stumbling upon the site of what is, essentially, a massacre.
"We Fixed a Truck"
The ending where the female Banana guard marches Banana Man off to jail, pinching his butt all the way, after Finn exposed him to fight a giant reptile Bubblegum.
The "TUG ME" candy heart makes another appearance.
The sheer amount of sexual innuendo is eye-popping to say the least, especially Samantha's lines.
Additionally, Jake made a sex tape for Lady Rainicorn.
More specifically, it involves Jake wearing a towel, calling himself a dirty dog, and then ripping the towel off. When he does, the shot not-coincidentally happens to be framed so that his tail is seen dangling between his legs. Meanwhile, outside the tape, in the real world, Lady Rainicorn is screaming with embarrassment and Finn is covering his eyes in horror.
The demon Keeoth seems really, really intent on having someone beat him up.
"Root Beer Guy"
Pretty much all of Cherry Cream Soda's complaints suggest she is sexually frustrated with her husband.
"I am a Cherry Cream Soda. And I have needs just the same as any other Cherry Cream Soda."
This added by the statement of how she misses sleeping with him. It looks like she means since he stays up all night trying to write his book but with the sexually frustrated undertones it sounds like something else.
She even dresses as a French maid (including the accent) to try to entice him! Later she says she had a great night after "dancing".
Pretty much everything Finn and Jake buy at the hardware store suggests they are going to murder, cut up, and depose of Princess Bubblegum.
Mini Episode ("The Wand" A.K.A. "Let's Work Together")
Finn insults a magic wand by saying, "I heard you pay a robot to rub your tummy for you!"
When said wand summons Lumpy Space Princess from its innards.
