Cartoon Network This Week Episode 29 Adventure Time Final Voice Session
This week’s episode of Cartoon Network This Week is all about the final voice acting session of Adventure Time, the show’s after party and a look at the show from the perspective of the show’s cast. Be warned, this episode will contain spoilers, so if you haven’t already done so (if possible), watch the Adventure Time finale on the Cartoon Network app in the United States, international audiences will have to wait until the finale airs in their respective countries.
The episode starts off with Willow Smith singing the Adventure Time theme for the final episode – Come Along With Me, she also voices Beth – The Pup Princess. Then Sam shows the waving snail on to of Finn and Jake’s treehouse in the final episode of Adventure Time, as last week’s episode of Cartoon Network This Week was all about the snail that features in every episode of Adventure Time. In the episode, Jeremy Shada (voice of Finn), John DiMaggio (voice of Jake), Olivia Olsen (voice of Marceline) look back through the history of the series, they were amazed about the amount of support from the show’s fans and look back to the first Adventure Time panel at San Diego Comic-Con, while at the convention they were impressed by the costumes of Adventure Time cosplayers. This was followed by the actual voice acting session with Kent Osborne (Adventure Time’s Head of Story), Tom Kenny (voice of Ice King and Gunter the Penguin), John DiMaggio and Jeremy Shada.
After the voice acting segment, is the after party, the centerpiece of the party was an cake featuring all the main characters from Adventure Time, production crew and voice acting talent of both past and present were invited to the final celebration, the show’s supervising director throughout the whole course of the series – Kelly Crews makes a speech about the show’s voice talent. John DiMaggio describes Jake’s voice as his own voice but with a hug around it, the show’s creator – Pendleton Ward gives him a hug. The voice of Tree Trunks – Polly Lou Livingston joined in the party via video call. Cartoon Network’s executive of current series – Conrad Montgomery describes the show as “always adventurous, always interesting” and has said that working on the show made him a better person, this segment ends with Pendleton Ward saying thanks to everyone.
The episode concludes with Sam, on behalf of the whole Cartoon Network team, he says “How do we feel about the end of Adventure Time?”, this was followed by a clip of Lemongrab saying (or rather, yelling) his infamous catchphrase – UNACCEPTABLE!. Adventure Time maybe over (at least in the form of a show), but the fun will never end.

How to cope with the end of Adventure Time:
New Adventure Time comics: BOOM! Studios will be releasing “Adventure Time: Season 11” in comic-book form in the United States in October 2018, although this may not be considered canon (it’s still 100% authorised by Cartoon Network), but it will offer some extra closure of what could of happened with Finn, Jake and friends after the events of the finale.
Also check out the new Adventure Time console game: Adventure Time: The Pirates of the Enchiridion, play the Bloons Adventure Time TD game or make your own adventure with the Adventure Time: Minecraft pack:
Finally, check out Cartoon Network’s new show – Summer Camp Island, many people who work on the new show (including the show’s creator – Julia Pott), also worked on Adventure Time.
