The OG Ending of ‘Adventure Time’ Has a Pretty Epic Ending for Jake’s Character

It is onerous to outline what makes a cartoon actually nice. If we’re speaking concerning the ’80s, there isn’t any scarcity of fantastic cartoon intros with theme songs carried out by spectacular bands able to producing face-melting solos. Often, after these opening credit rolled, the cartoon sucked. Personally, I feel it comes right down to tone and specificity, one thing Journey Time defines very, very properly, particularly with what presumably occurred to Jake’s character within the present.

So, what occurred to Jake in ‘Journey Time’?

After the loopy occasions of the collection finale that sees Finn and Jake’s treehouse destroyed and the 2 protagonists almost escaping loss of life, we’re left seeing Finn and Jake chilling on the seashore. Finn’s left his robotic arm behind, signifying that his adventuring days are behind him, and Jake appears content material to only dwell out the remainder of his days chilling, as a result of, you realize, that is sort of his M.O.

Jake finally ends up having kids with Girl Rainicorn, and their son, T.V., finally ends up opening up a detective company. Within the collection finale, we’re launched to 2 new characters, Shermy and Beth, the latter of whom shares a resemblance to Jake and has a unicorn horn on her snout, indicating that she’s associated to the dog-hero followers turned so properly acquainted with through the years.

There’s an fascinating concept as to how Jake dies in ‘Journey Time.’

It is presumed that the magic canine both lives a very very long time or is immortal within the Journey Time universe, and for an acid-trip of a “kids’s” cartoon, there appears to be no scarcity of theories as to how this occurs. Fortunately, Steve Wolfhard, an AT author and storyboard artist, confirmed that there was an fascinating episode sequence in an episode that was by no means aired that delineates what occurs to Jake.

On account of the truth that he can stretch to nice sizes, nevertheless, after he dies, there are not any dwelling synapses in his physique as a way to management his development, which causes large issues for everybody within the Kingdom of Ooo and probably the world. 

Throughout his funeral the place many characters (besides Finn, as a result of he is human and has been lengthy presumed useless) seem, Jake’s physique busts out of his see-through casket and begins rising to an enormous measurement. It begins destroying the dominion, however Princess Bubblegum thinks quick.
